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.
