      Complex. Peat and smoke marry well together on the nose supported by a sweet undertone of caramel and sea salt.

      Surprisingly, the smoke and peat are not on the forefront when this hits the palate. Lovely Highland malt is upfront with notes of citrus and some caramelized almonds. Peat and smoke notes settle in nicely after the fruit notes...just lovely!

      Peppered spice with campfire smoke spell out a nice long finish. This really is a complex blend of high quality whiskies. It is no wonder this special release is so sought after each year. I wish I had been able to grab a second bottle of this when it was still available.

    Jim Murray has awarded 95.5 points to the Flaming Heart FH16MMVII (Wisky Bible 2009). "This is a whisky that will be remembered by anyone who drinks it for the rest of their lives as just about the perfect study of full-bodied balance and sophistication. And that is not cheap hyperbole."

      This is maybe not the best whisky ever made, but it may be more personal favorite. It scratches ever itch I have. The smoke is perfect; the spice is absolutely mindspiralling; the body is supple, slightly chewy, but still light enough to eminently sippable.

      A gorgeous gasp of air, then all my muscles relax and I enjoy...for so long.
