An opium smuggler gets a bit carried away and ends up as The Dalmore distillery founder. Guid!
 
The Dalmore is a distillery in Alness, Scotland, north of Inverness. Its location and flavor qualify it as a Highland malt. Hielan dram.
 
In 1839, Alexander Matheson invested profits from his illegal opium smuggling business to build The Dalmore Distillery in Scotland’s northern Highlands. There, he produced small batches of single malt Scotch Whisky until 1886, when the facility was sold to the MacKenzie family
 
When a MacKenzie saved Scottish King Alexander III from a charging stag, the regent awarded the family with a 12-point stag’s head for its coat of arms that now appears on the label of every bottle the distillery produces.  Recently, the MacKenzie motto "Luceo non Uro" or "I shine, not burn" has also been taken up by Dalmore. The Dalmore distillery is owned and operated by Whyte and Mackay.
 
Dalmore 18 is matured initially for 14 years in American white oak ex-Bourbon casks, the Whisky is then transferred to 30-year-old Matusalem Oloroso Sherry wood for a further four years. It is critically important that the distillery is located at sea level. Enveloped by the salt air, the sea-facing traditional dunnage warehouses provide the ideal conditions for maturation. 
 
Smartass Corner:
In 1870 Dalmore became the first malt Whisky ever to be exported. To Australia, to be precise.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
