    Serge from Whiskyfun:

    Flaming Heart (48.9%, Compass Box, 2006)  Another vatting containing 1⁄4 Caol Ila and lots of Clynelish plus again a little Dailuaine for good measure. Colour: straw. Nose: Caol Ila shines through first (peat, fresh apples and smoked oysters) but Clynelish is well here, with another kind of ‘coastality’ (less smoky) and lots of green and yellow fruits: pears, plums, white peaches plus hints of diesel oil. Excellent, very clean, perfectly balanced, with a great freshness. Especially the chosen proportion of Caol Ila is perfect. Mouth: exactly the same happens on the palate. First Caol Ila (and a rather wild one, at that) with a straightforward smokiness, then mingling with Clynelishe’s complex fruitiness and waxiness. Lots of spices, at that, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, kumquats, dried figs, soft curry… Very, very good. Long, ample finish on both peat and spices plus notes of bananas flambéed and finally lots of pepper. Wonderful I think – now, this is for single malt drinkers! My favourite Compass Box so far and by far. 90 points, with my modest (yeah) congratulations and encouragements.
