TASTING NOTES
The colour  is a deep rich mahogany with hints of cherry wood. The nose delivers spectacular aromas with a spectrum of complexities that flaunt themselves in an elegant manner. Vibrant and exciting yet full of dignity and passion. A flood of hedonistic aromas drift in perfusion from freshly cut flowers to a basket of exotic fruits. Give them all time to arouse your senses.

This gallery of ecstasy continues to unfold on the palate with immense pleasure. These enticing complex flavours are attributed to one thing only – wood. Not just any wood but six different styles of casks specially selected and meticulously blended to produce this Royal Dram for your enjoyment. Aged Oloroso and Madeira provide the perfect backbone and structure, displaying warm flavours of crushed almonds and rich citrus fruits. While the heavy Port and Marsala casks add hints of wild berries and fleshy ripe plums. Warm whispers of vanilla and creamy caramel from Bourbon barrels combine perfectly with the sensual elegance of the Cabernet Sauvignon. A feast of flavours which reflect Dalmore’s royal heritage.

All Dalmore Single Malt Whiskies are prized personal favourites of The DIstinct Whiskey Company and is very highly recommended.

HISTORY
During the 1970’s, ‘80’s and ‘90’s, Dalmore’s master distiller, Richard Paterson, filled French cabernet sauvignon wine barriques, Mediterranean Madeira drums, Matusalem Sherry butts from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, Marsala barrels from Sicily, Port pipes from the Douro and sweet Bourbon barrels from Kentucky with the fledgling Dalmore spirit.
Once matured to perfection, the artistic process of creating The Dalmore King Alexander III commenced; the casks were expertly combined to create a sublime malt where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This whisky has been crafted in commemoration of our Mackenzie Clan founder’s selfless and heroic act in saving King Alexander III in 1263.
