From the Producer:"This is our sixth edition of Flaming Heart, a whisky born of oak, smoke and fire. In this 2018 edition, we have reintroduced a subtle sherry-cask influence that adds an additional layer of complexity and richness. A medium smoky-peaty base is enriched by a sweet maltiness and notes of baking spices and dried fruit. Itâ€™s a whisky to enjoy late into the night, perfect served neat or paired with rich cheeses.
"Bottled at 48.9% / Not chill-filtered / Natural colour / First released in 2006, Flaming Heart was the first whisky to combine the rich, complex spice of Scotch aged in new French oak with the evocative peat-fired smoke of Islay malt. It created a genre-defying style that was smouldering, spicy, complex and so popular that we've re-released it five more times in the years that followed."
