Compass Box Flaming Heart Limited Edition
Not to be confused with the standard edition, this LIMITED EDITION, priced around $130-$140 contains:
8.5% – 14 year old Caol Ila
27.1% – 30 year old Caol Ila
24.1% – 20 year old Clynelish
10.3% – 7 year old blended malt from Clynelish, Teaninich and Dailuaine.
Nose: Caol Ila peat definitely comes through in this. Dark cherries and peanut brittle.
Palate: Chewy peat with prunes and yogurt raisins in tandem that play together until the tide of semisweet ash muscles to the finish. Full flavored and complex. Tinkers with being too hot but isn’t.
This Flaming Heart is reminiscent of the profile in many of the higher end Douglas Laing bottles. Very expensive ones.
