This is our sixth edition of Flaming Heart, a whisky inspired by a rock song.
Once again, we combine the rich, bold spiciness of malt whisky aged in heavy-toasted French oak barrels with the evocative smoke of heavy-peated Islay malt whisky. The components are from a range of ages that provides depth and complexity.
The combination yields a flavour profile like no other in Scotch whisky: big, bold, hauntingly smoky, but with an alluring ethereal sweetness that calls you back to the glass.
In this edition, we have reintroduced a subtle Sherry cask influence that adds an additional layer of complexity and richness. This is a touch we have used for Flaming Heart only once before, in the 2012 edition. While we nuance each edition of Flaming Heart, the signature style always remains the same.

The blend is composed of a spicy and clingingly fruity parcel of malt whisky from the Miltonduff Distillery, combined with the creamy and vanilla-rich character of grain whisky from the North British Distillery. A small amount of malt whisky from the Clynelish Distillery lends an elegance and fragrance many of the world’s finest dessert wines might envy, while a touch of malt whisky from the Glen Elgin distillery further enhances the tropical profile.

This assemblage (we love Tim’s use of this wine word to describe whisky blending) comprises single malt whiskies from four distilleries, each bringing a distinctiveness to the whole.
You’ll find notes of barley sugar, pear drop and vanilla, complemented by an ethereal underlying herbal character.
It’s a whisky to be enjoyed with great food and even better company.
