Thanks to @Numen for the reviewed sample. Flaming Heart 10th Anniversary is a 'pure/vatted/blended malt' whisky. Some of the whisky is aged in new French Oak

Nose: sweet, peaty, spicy, floral, and malty in perfect balance, like an exquisite potpourri in a malt nose. This does not wander around at all, but presents a finished constant beautiful static fabric. A masterpiece of blending

Taste: strong sweet peat on the palate immediately, with nice Islay briney-medicinal notes, but not too much. This remains graceful, and shows a level of wood spiciness unusual in Scottish whiskies

Finish: nice strong descrescendo finish. All the elements hold up a long time, with the peat flavours being strongest at the end

Balance: what's not to like? This is a beautiful vatted malt. The balance is quite lovely, especially on nose and palate
