As one of the Highland distillery’s signature whiskies, The Dalmore King Alexander III has been matured in ex-bourbon casks, Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, Madeira barrels, Marsala casks, Port pipes and Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques.
The flavours combine in perfect harmony to create a complex yet smooth single malt, which leaves a finish of classic and traditional Christmas spices including sweet cinnamon and nutmeg.
With aromas of red berry fruits and a zing of citrus zest on the palate, the exquisite King Alexander III is an impeccable way to mark the festive season.
Painstakingly created by Master Distiller Richard Paterson, who has made it his mission to continually evolve the art of multi-cask maturation and finishing, The Dalmore King Alexander III is the first and only single malt in the world to unite a unique six-cask finish for one outstanding achievement.
Richard Paterson, Master Distiller at The Dalmore said: “
” A bottle of King Alexander III is truly a privilege to give and receive during this festive time, the complex flavours of this unique whisky impart the taste of Christmas long in the mouth”
A perfect way to mark the season with family and friends, the unique finishing of this expression results in a whisky which has great character and a unrivalled flavour and depth.
The Dalmore King Alexander III is named in honour of the 13th Century King of Scotland, who gifted the 12-pointed Royal Stag emblem to the Mackenzie Clan, owners of The Dalmore distillery, as a reward for saving him from a charging stag. To this day, the iconic Stag still adorns each and every bottle of The Dalmore and contains a powerful promise that The Dalmore will remain at the pinnacle of single malt.
