A hot sultry sweetheart for Valentine's Day.....

34
"Flaming Heart" - Compass Box Second Limited Release Blended Malt 48.9% Bottling No: FH16MMVII.
A bonfire of naartjie(tangerine) scented leaves and peated malt.
Delectably smooth and oily on the tongue. Orangey sweet initially then tar and bonfire with a lightly charred finish.
Water offers a surprising dominance of vanilla pod and toffee, a hint of horse sweat(Bowmore?), now a complex nose with the peat softly chugging in the background.
The citrus charring is now accentuated on the palate leaving a long, lingering peated finish. 90
