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.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
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.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
The twleve-pointed stag is called the "royal stag" called "the caberfeidh." Colin Kintail of the Clan Mackenzie, saved the life of King Alexander II of Scotland in 1263, when he was charged by a stag. The grateful king awarded him lands, and the right to use the royal stag logo in the Mackenzie family crest.
