Scotch Compass Box Flaming Heart'sRegular price $141.99
Oak, Smoke, Fire… and Rock. Flaming Heart takes its name from a song by M. Ward. For the label of this seventh version, we have made the rock music inspiration still more explicit. Stranger & Stranger, the design agency behind the last four incarnations, created a beautiful framework for the label, drawing on source material from the world of heavy metal posters. They then had a lot of fun layering references to iconic rock acts. Starting with Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’ album artwork, and embracing Led Zeppelin and Captain Beefheart, fans of classic rock will enjoy scouting out the easter eggs.
The whisky inspired by a rock song – on tour again in 2022. Like metal bands, some whiskies need an audience – others command one. Flaming Heart has always enjoyed performing to passionate fans. Oak, smoke and fire reunite for a seventh time, fusing pyrotechnics with deliciousness. The whisky is built around a new power trio of peated malts from the Caol Ila, Laphroaig and Talisker distilleries, while spice from our trademark French oak custom barrels delivers both loudness and a luxurious mouthfeel. As well as being perhaps the fruitiest Flaming Heart of recent years, you will experience a very special encore that combines remnant stocks of Peat Monster Arcana, our release for Belgian importer The Nectar’s 15th Anniversary, and a little of the 2018 version of Flaming Heart. We love the connection to musical sampling, bringing past smoky riffs into a new arrangement. Visit our website for a playlist to accompany this, our most anthemic of whiskies.
