Dalmore King Alexander III

Legend has it that the head of the Mackenzie clan saved King Alexander III, King of Scots, from a stag during a hunting expedition. The Mackenzie clan eventually came to own The Dalmore Distillery for almost a century and The Stag symbol is proudly displayed on their bottles. This bottling is aged in SIX different casks: bourbon, sherry, Marsala, Madeira, port, and cabernet sauvignon.

"With all of those wine finishes, you'd expect the nose to be fruit filled, but it is also floral. Each one of the wines themselves are so expressive, providing red fruit, nuts, winter spices, and chocolate. The dark malty character is still there underneath it all."
