17/08/2012 Whisky with a Flaming Heart

Compass Box Flaming Heart 2012 I recently talked about a Special whisky, now there's another coming very soon.

Every few years, when they have the appropriate combination of aged whiskies, Compass Box Whiskies are able to blend and bottle a new edition of the award-winning Flaming Heart. This will be the fourth incarnation.

It is a big, smoky malt whisky with rich, concentrated vanilla and spice character.

It is unlike any other whisky, owing to the combination of distillery whiskies used and the variety and quality of the casks.

This will be limited to just over 9,000 bottles worldwide and it will be hitting shelves in September and October.

To celebrate the release of the 4th edition of this rather splendid whisky, Compass Box Whiskies will be raising a glass of Flaming Heart around the world on Wednesday 3rd October. Put the date in your diaries. We have renamed it, quite simply, 'Flaming Heart Day'. It is a whisky born of fire, yet one with a big heart, people.

If you want to know what it tastes like stay tuned here as I will be sampling this shortly as part of the Compass Box Tweet Tasting from The Whisky Wire on 29th August 2012 which you can follow on twitter by searching for #CBTT2
