Proof66 Notes

The Dalmore Alexander III single malt scotch is made to commemorate the preservation of King Alexander III in the 13th century by ancestors of the distillery's founders. It has been aged in a stunning combination of French wine "barriques," madeira drums, Jerez sherry, Sicilian marasala barrels, Douro port, and Kentucky bourbon barrels.

The distillery itself was founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson. It lies near the Averon River, which is also the water it uses for its scotch. It was later sold to the Mackenzie family in 1886, which gives rise to the luceo non uro motto from the family translating as "I shine, not burn." The distillery is currently owned by Whyte & Mackay. The Dalmore Distillery has the emblem of the stag--an antlered head--which comes from a legend from 1263 when the ancestors of the founders saved King Alexander III from being gored by a stag during a hunt; he rewarded them by allowing them to use the stag head on their coat of arms. The Dalmore brand was originally owned by Whyte & Mackay (and in turn Diageo) but was sold to Emperador Distillers of the Philippines in 2014.

4.55/5, a elevated version of the 18 in all it's wine influenced glory. Nose is even fuller & richer than 18 & mouth is has a slightly sweeter & orange middle with an added dimension to 18. It's smooth and very easy going (blend lovers & light scotch lovers will like). It's got mass appeal and would be a great gift because it is a great scotch. Best wine influenced scotch I've had to date
