Customer Rating
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.

    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.

    Great news! I'm just about to buy one for a friend's special birthday. I'm sure he'll share some with me :) I love giving presents like that!

  • Nick 2 April 2012

    Absolutely superb with a smoky but not overpowering flavour. It's also incredibly smooth and has no bite which makes in very pleasant to drink. Lovely.

    I recently purchased my second bottle from TWE, bought on the reviews here and have yet to open either. I hoping they are worth the wait. They certainly look the business

  • Juan M Prieto- Miami 9 November 2011

    Excellent Whiskey, Simply the Best I've drunk so far !!...worth the Money !

  • Pav 8 July 2011

    Very sherried and little peat. If you like them smooth and easy to drink this is very good. Not a patch on Glenlivet XXV though!

  • Steve Rainbow 13 April 2011

    I just bought one of these because i'm very much a Dalmore fan. Reading these reviews makes me even more excited.I also second the above comment - Richard Paterson is indeed a genius.

  • Jonhedin H. Trondheim 31 March 2011

    Absolutely one of the best whiskey I have ever tasted. My daughter bought a bottle for me at the Edinburg Airport (God bless her) She knows I love whiskey, but this one just hit the bullet.Thank God she's studying at the Stirling Uni and is a frequent traveler.
