Dalmore 12YO Scotch Whisky 700ml
The Dalmore 12 Year Old is a distinctive and esteemed single malt Scotch Whisky, as bold as the steed emblazoned on the bottle. The Dalmore is a highly respected dram of distinction, history and pedigree; the product of a small and dedicated team of local stillmen with a rich family lineage connected to the production of Dalmore's Scotch Whiskies. Shaped by time, water and weather, The Dalmore 12 gratefully rewards its loyal admirers with a unique, full taste that perfectly reflects its origins.
Adhering to the legend of The Dalmore, this offering projects a robust, elegant and courageous palate, reminiscent of the courage shown by the founding Mackenzie family member when he risked his own life to save Scotland's then ruler, from a charging stag. Aged for longer than the typical 10 years in American oak and sherry barrels, this single malt distinctly benefits from this time-honouring approach.
Tasting Note: Malty, orange, dark plums, chocolate, caramel, marzipan and aromatic spice. Intense citrus and hints of sweet vanilla pod, plums, coffee, cinnamon with sweet toffee, brown spices, leather, and robust exotic peppercorns. A long sherry-wooded fade.
Dalmore King Alexander III Scotch Whisky 700ml
The Dalmore King Alexander III is an exceptional and rare whisky from a highly esteemed distillery, crafted to honour the act of saving Scotland's King in 1263. To make The Dalmore King Alexander III, Master Distiller Richard Paterson has selected a range of differently-aged malts matured in a mixture of French wine casks, Madeira drums, Sherry butts, Marsala barrels, Port pipes and Bourbon barrels from Kentucky.
What results is nothing short of a remarkable feat of blending by Dalmore. The intensely unique King Alexander III is an exceptional malt, whereby the individual characteristics of each barrel contribution work together to form a rich, deep spirit. This release commemorates the Mackenzie Clan ancestor's heroic act in saving King Alexander in 1263, and will certainly prove itself a dram of royal worth.
