The royal treatment.

Alexander Matheson, a trader who made his fortune in illegal opium imports from the Far East, founded the now prestigious Dalmore Distillery in 1839. It is located on the northern shores of the Firth of Cromarty, deep in the Scottish Highlands. The Dalmore changed owners many times throughout the years, with Clan Mackenzie being in control the longest.

Clan Mackenzie is also to thank for Dalmore's signature twelve-pronged stag included on all Dalmore bottles. The story of the stag goes back to 1263, when the head of clan heroically saved Scottish King Alexander the Third, with a single arrow to end the Stag's attempt. The king was so grateful that he granted the Mackenzies the right to use the now famous image of the stag on his family crest.

Master Blender Richard Paterson decided to honour the story afresh with the dram at hand. The Dalmore King Alexander III is a marriage of different ages and different casks. This dram was matured in six different casks:American white oak ex-Bourbon cask, Matusalem Oloroso Sherry casks, Madeira barrels, Marsala casks, Port pipes and Cabernet Sauignon wine barriques.

This enchanting melange unfolds a dram unlike any other. Remarkably polished, rich and balanced thanks to the amazing cask wizardry. This dram bears a tremendous amount of personality. Synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Take your time, appreciate and embrace it. The celebration of the legend that’s fit for a king.

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.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
A single bottle of Dalmor, from the "Trinitas" release, was the first bottle of Scotch Whisky to sell for more than $100,000.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
