Shine, not burn. 

Scotland’s Dalmore distillery was established in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, an entrepreneur who had made most of his fortune in the opium trade with China. When he decided to sell his business 28 years later, the Dalmore was acquired by brothers Andrew and Charles Mackenzie of the clan Mackenzie – establishing the now-famous 12-pointed Royal Stag, a former crest of the clan, as the distillery’s emblem that has since become synonymous with the Dalmore.

This award-winning distillery produces its Whiskies in a combination of different stills that give their Whisky its more complex character, while the aging takes place in two types of casks: white oak Bourbon and handpicked aged Sherry.

The Dalmore Dominium is a part of the Dalmore's Fortuna Meritas collection, aged in 30-year-old Matusalem Sherry casks. Its name means “ownership”, referencing a 13th-century event when Colin of Kintail, the Mackenzie clan chief, saved King Alexander III of Scotland from a charging stag. The grateful king granted him a large amount of land, and the use of the royal stag emblem. This sherry-noted single malt with hints of toffee, molasses and tobacco perfectly embodies the Mackenzie clan motto, Luceo non uro, Latin for “I shine, not burn”. It’s bottled at 43% and has all the richness and strength that you would come to expect from something called Dominium, but its flavor never overpowers.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
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.
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.
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.
