Flaming Heart Blended Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
Made to commemorate Compass Box’s fifteenth anniversary, this blended whisky contains 30-year-old Caol Ila, and displays the best of what new French Oak aging has to offer. Our fifteenth anniversary release is a huge, layered, long-lasting mouthful of a whisky to enjoy late into the night. Brooding, indulgent and older than ever before, this is a whisky born of oak, smoke and fire – with a big heart all of its own. 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 four more times in the years that followed.

About the brand
In 1967, Canada was celebrating its centennial, magnificent Great Lakes ships were being built and launched in Collingwood Harbour, and an American bourbon distiller decided that Collingwood would be the perfect place to build a new distillery for the production of Canadian whisky. The distillery was purchased in 1971 by Brown-Forman, makers of famous Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey. Brown-Forman’s successful Canadian Mist Whisky brand has been produced in Collingwood ever since. Many years later in 2011, under the skilled craftsmanship of Brown-Forman Master Distiller Chris Morris, the Collingwood distillery launched a new premium artisanal brand, Collingwood Whisky, for the Canadian, US and international markets. Like the town where it’s made, Collingwood Whisky is no ordinary spirit. Distilled using pristine filtered water from Georgian Bay and grains (corn, rye and barley) sourced mainly from Ontario farms, it is aged in high-quality oak barrels hand-made in Brown-Forman’s own cooperage. Once the whisky is perfectly matured, it is rested with toasted maplewood “staves”, which imparts a maple character that is truly Canadian, yet unique among Canadian whiskies. “Collingwood Whisky is inspired by the iconic heritage and natural resources of Southern Georgian Bay,” says David Dobbin, AVP and General Manager of Canadian Mist Distillers. “At the heart of the brand are locally-sourced ingredients and the craftsmanship of our dedicated people, who are all local residents. What stands out about this whisky is that it’s incredibly smooth with no harshness. Full-flavoured and complex with a long, clean finish, you can sip it neat, on the rocks or in classic lighter cocktails, and its characteristics are perfect for a variety of food recipes.” As Collingwood Whisky was quickly gaining rave reviews and loyal drinkers, the distillery’s manager made a remarkable discovery in 2013 – fifty barrels of 100% rye whisky aging on the premises since the early 1990s. The vintage, bottled and named Collingwood 21 Year Old Rye Canadian Whisky, garnered top honours, winning the Canadian Whisky of the Year and Connoisseur of the Year categories at the Canadian Whisky Awards in 2015. Inspired by the success of this vintage, Brown-Forman decided to explore concepts for limited runs of interesting new whiskies. In 2017, the distillery launched the first release of its limited edition Town Collection – Double Barreled Whisky. Unlike most Canadian whiskies, which are blends of several varieties, Double Barreled is made from only one type of whisky, which is first matured in white oak barrels, then decanted and finished in heavily-toasted, lightly charred new oak barrels for further maturation. Finally, Double Barreled rests in stainless steel marrying vats with toasted maplewood staves. “There’s something noticeably different about Double Barreled,” notes David Dobbin. “The extended maturation process results in exciting new tasting notes – dry cinnamon spice, toasted oak and lightly dried orchard fruits, imparting a smooth, warm finish with a flavour that is both smooth and complex.” The judges agree. At the 2018 Canadian Whisky Awards in Victoria, BC, a panel of eight international whisky experts awarded Collingwood Whisky Town Collection Double Barreled both a Gold Medal and Sippin’ Whisky of the Year. The distillery’s Collingwood Whisky was honoured with a Bronze Medal, as was Canadian Mist, which also won the Whisky Value of the Year – Export category. A long-time supporter of its home town, Collingwood Whisky has worked closely with the Save Our Lighthouse campaign, encouraging buyers of its Double Barrelled Whisky to donate and contributing a substantial sum of money to the restoration of the Nottawasaga Lighthouse, which was damaged by lightning in 2004. To promote Collingwood’s whisky roots, the distiller inspired the idea of “Whiskylicious”, working with the Downtown Collingwood BIA and the Town of Collingwood, and generously supporting the event to make it an annual success. As you journey forth during Whiskylicious, taking in the festivities, sampling one-of-a-kind taste sensations and sipping unique Collingwood Whisky cocktail creations at participating restaurants and specialty food shops, remember to raise a glass to Collingwood’s rich whisky heritage. Honour the pursuit. Sip responsibly.

Information: Compos© d'une grande partie de Caol Ila (29%) qui apporte de l'©l©gance   l'ensemble on y trouve ©galement du Clynelish (17%) et du Deanston (17%) avec quelques autres whiskies reprise non identifi©s. Cette ©dition r©introduit le fut de sherry utilis© la derni¨re fois avec l'©dition de 2012. Nez: fum© de feu de camp pas trop agressant. Des raisins sucr©s. Des natural products frais.

C'est ©vident que le mix est compos© de produit de haute qualit©. C'est tout ce que j'attendais de Compass Box. Je ne peux comparer avec l'©dition pr©c©dente mais l'influence de Sherry est bien l  et s'affirme de faon tellement harmonis© que j'ai de la difficult©   concevoir ce que serait ce produit sans l'influence de sherry. C'est parfait comme a! last: Fum© chaud fruit©. Un coulis aux framboise sur du chocolat noir. By and large: Approach! Compass Box frappe un upset de circuit avec cette ©dition. Rien de trop gentil en bouche sans ªtre non in addition to un overthrow de poing. La tourbe est agenc© de faon ©l©gante et ©mane une chaleur avec le taux de 48%. Intensit© aromatique tr¨s ©quilibr© entre le natural product frais et le cendr©-fum©. Jamais vu un whisky qui portait aussi bien child nom.

In the same way as other of you I love Compass Box. Fundamentally every CB whisky - center contributions restricted versions peated or non-peated too test or exemplary articulations. While it is ideal to have one of each CB puts out a variety of whiskies (22 current contributions in view of the on the CB site) with a genuinely high pace of turnover for the uncommon releases. So I'm attempting to be somewhat specific. I've been especially inquisitive about the Blazing Heart so it was a simple pick from the Franklin Room's menu. It satisfied my hopes - peaty strong and a pleasant organic product pleasantness. No harshness not an off note to be found and a pleasant smokey finish. By the by I truly wish I could have attempted it close by Peat Beast which I review as being fundamentally the same as and impressively less expensive. What's more at $100+ the Flaring Heart has solid rivalry from a couple of other CB contributions. So is it a purchase? In the quick term I responded to the purchase question the next day at Binny's in Lincoln Park (an extraordinary tip from @ANTONIOSCHMID). The Compass Box determination at Binny's was exceptional similar to the choice of nearby specialty bourbons and pretty much everything else. Hard decisions were unavoidable. The Blazing Heart was at a bargain for $114 yet at long last I picked two distinctive CB's - a first release No Name essentially due to how much the whisky senseis here rave about it and the Lost Mix since it likewise has some fine surveys and I speculate it will be somewhat not the same as other CB peated contributions. Notwithstanding it would appear that the accessibility of the current Flaring Heart is acceptable and I haven't precluded a buy yet.

Nice tasty measure with botanical fruity vanilla zesty and peaty notes. Not a major peat fan but rather will endure peat when joined with pleasantness.

Its that uncommon time once more. Time for John Glaser and the folks at Compass Box Whisky to discharge another release of Flaring Heart. This is their semi-yearly intensely peated mix intended to mollify the peat-heads of the scotch world. Its been a long time since the last discharge however perhaps John and the posse has been getting extended excessively flimsy with all the bespoke bottlings. Cut that out lol. Anyway this is the sixth Version and they chose to add another layer to this mix by enhancing the mix with some sherried whisky. Why? I dont understand I simply realize the cost has ascended on this one by $20-25 and I dont truly like that. In any case well leave that fuss until the end. This one is light yellow in the Glencairn and makes some watery legs and small drops on the edge. Its packaged at 48.9% and similar to all CBW mixes has no additional shading and isnt chill separated. The nose is ashtray smoke and new ground peppercorn in advance so solid I really pulled back a piece when I initially went in. Theres tar and liquor consistently present and I got a touch of sweet vanilla after some time a great deal of time really: 40 minutes or something like that. It required some investment for the fire to torch itself. Im not griping in any case simply archiving it. The sense of taste brings progressively grating smoke and BBQd elastic (if that bodes well). The mouthcoat is as yet rich with the faintest of pleasantness at last seeping through all the smoke and peat. Dried raisins is pretty much the entirety of the sherry impact I get in spite of there being practically 30% of the mix being sourced from sherry casked Deanston. The 40% from Caol Ila and 8% from the mixed French Oak containers are conveying the heap here. As they should-this is intended to be a fireball of smoke and warmth. It still predominately is fortunately. The completion is long and smoky with more ashtray and copied calfskin. Its hot and dry and all that you love about obvious peat beasts (quip planned). In general these are still right up my alley. The sherry impact got away from me here however Im really cheerful about that-well aside from the expansion in cost. I needed to pay $130 for this container and I feel like thats $30 to an extreme. I miss my old $100 Flaring Hearts I truly do. Ill likewise happily forego the additional sherry next time much obliged. Be that as it may everything being equal this is as yet an incredible measure on the off chance that you like your peat. 4.25 stars. Good health.
