To make Dalmore King Alexander III, Master Distiller Richard Paterson selected a range of differently aged malts matured in a mixure of French wine casks, Madeira drums, sherry butts, Marsala barrels, port pipes and bourbon barrels from Kentucky. A remarkable feat of blending.

    I've tried several superior Single Malts and this is my favorite. A sweet finish with a bit of citrus.

    It is more than 30yrs since I bought a bottle of Highland or Speyside whisky, although I have tasted many. I tasted KA III and bought a bottle. As someone who is not favourable towards Sherried, or Port whiskies etc I found that the tannic quality of the Cab Sav balanced the sweeter casks. This is a masterpiece of blending. Two or three casks blended with a spirit must be difficult enough but to do, but to blend six and yet maintain the character of the foundation spirit and create such balance is truly to be commended.

    Bought for my 50th, now 53 and just taken first glass, what an idiot I am. Why the wait? How many people do I know with bottles they never open because of cost. Delightful, smooth, beautiful toffee, chocolate, vanilla nose. Wish it left more of an aftertaste on the tongue, but this is mega critical. One of the best whiskeys I have ever experienced and I am not shrinking violet on the wee dram front. Recommend and enjoy

    Malty cereal and barley presence. Sour young oranges, burnt citrus peel. Medium body with oak flavor. No spice. Slight dryness, slight cocoa. Good dram for Dalmore. I like the 18yr still.

    I''m dalmore king Alexander fan, I have 23 bottle of king Alexander, and i have open 5 bottle . This is the best whiskey I have tried and the special whiskey, worth to buy and keep. Taste, you try it, then you will find it is so special. I gotna tell A secret of this bottle is, once the moment you open the bottle, abt 2-3 feet far you still able to smell the aroma, so please take note when u going to open this Gem. If in Aircon room then it will be more obvious. You hardly can found this when u open others''..

    Incredible whiskey. And I've tasted my fair share (macallan,talisker etc) Fruity, winter berries, spice. With elements of liqueur. Very complex. Very smooth. Highly recommended.

    As I loved this dram and agree that it is indeed a remarkable feat of blending, 40% ABV bottling is heart-breaking since it has obviously brought down the much greater potential of this otherwise great dram. It should have been bottled at a relatively higher strength as in the example of Dalmore's Clan Mackenzie series. I'd rather spend my £120.00 on a dram that is unadulterated. Still 90/100, which I presume could have been as high as 93 points otherwise.
