Top reviews for The Dalmore King Alexander III:
— Very rich and smooth taste.
— Syrup, port, wood, I loved this one when I visited the distillery and my wife got me one when back at home. One of my fave drams!
— This is a 10/10 if there ever was one, price notwithstanding. This is a bottle I will always have in my cabinet because it's pure delight from nose to sip to finish. The naysayers lean on Dalmore's image, marketing, and use of e-150, but that doesn't matter here. This is an excellent scotch that will satisfy any spirit lover no matter the experience. Rich oak barrel tones meet your palate, followed by a veritable explosion of dark fruits, orange, vanilla, and light spice. The finish is long and delicious. If you can afford a bottle of this, treat yourself.

Member Reviews and Ratings of The Dalmore King Alexander III
A ton of complexity! Great for intermediate or experienced scotch drinker. So much going on in the glass credit to the 6 different casks at play. The nose alone is exceptional. Always find something new when I come back to this dram. Almost perfect. One mark off for price and ABV.
This one was a complete surprise for me. I dont usually enjoy Dalmore i know how could I. This one though right of the bat the nose the palate the after. All amazing, fantastically robust while being packed with flavor. Burns a little hot if you like speyside whiskys but overall a dream. One main con Price is a little high
Very rich and smooth taste.
Syrup, port, wood, I loved this one when I visited the distillery and my wife got me one when back at home. One of my fave drams!
This is very nice, but far too subtle. This is so smooth it's almost watery. Almost no nose, but what is there is quite sublime and complex, just too subtle for my palate. For £190+ I seriously wouldn't bother, there are far better choices out there.

Liquid gold. Would convert the harshest non-believer!
Nose: I noticed light vanilla and honey/caramel notes with the smallest hint of smoke.
Palette: Light vanilla underpinnings with hints of citrus, smooth and thin mouth feel. Reminded me of drinking a vanilla-flavored green leaf tea on sunny day.
Finish: Very smooth with a honey aftertaste.
Nice, sweet, easy drink
When you just want to sit and melt problems of the day away, have a glass of Alex the 3rd and relax. Smooth, complex, warm, and very inviting.
If you love sherry you will love this sweet as candy serried up the wazoo awesome bottle
The Friendliest Scotch I know. And like all good friends King Alex has a great story to tell. You will want to hear it for yourself. Smooth, medium body, with a complex flavor spiral. This one is reserved for private conversation.
Expensive, worth every penny!! Right up there with the best whiskies in my opinion
Delicious and more complex than the 12 which is a favorite of mine. You can taste the different elements that go in this one. Easy to drink neat. Like Christmas in a glass. Worth trying a glass if your bar serves it!
This was a gift from my wife and I have not opened it yet. I can't wait to try it.
really nice Scotch. No peat
very smooth, not smoky.
I appreciate what they did with this there are a multitude of flavours but water i find is a must with this one.
I love the complexity from all the different finishing barrels.
Love this Scotch! Extremely smooth with the perfect blend of spices and fruits!
Oh My!! The is straight from the Gods!! Like drinking spiced velvet and Carmel!!
Very deep and rich and one of the few bottles worth the price tag even as a no age statement
One of the best single malts I've ever tasted. Note that you can get 3 Lagavulin 16's for the price of this one and get thrice as drunk, if you're into that kind of stuff.
nose: orange, lots of vanilla (extract), tropical fruits - primarily mango, artificial passionfruit, cereal and barley
palate: white pepper, creamy, fruity, good mouthfeel
finish: medium finish, peppery but not spicy, creamy, orange liquer, a little oak
overall: sweet, delicious with good flavor but the peppery flavor holds it back a little. wouldnt pay the price of 150 for a bottle but it is well balanced and flavorful for 40%.
I like it.
Great, still looking for my favorite.
One of my new favorites. Perfect with a cigar. The start is extremely smooth - almost buttery, then a spicy-fruit middle, with a chocolate- caramel finish.
I really enjoyed this one, but not as much as my wife did. I picked up a bottle in NYC, and it was the high point of the already fantastic trip. This is absolutely her favorite single malt in the world. The top of my chart is the Glenmorangie Signet. While the Signet has an emphasis on strengthened tertiary flavors, King Alexander III clearly had more focus in cask juggling. They bring out fantastic combinations of wood flavors that you won't get from most single malts and still carries the Dalmore flavor. If you're hesitant to try this one because of the price tag, pick up the lower age range and decide whether you like the Dalmore flavor, then if it suits your fancy, get bold and step up for this kingly Scotch.
Very bold caramel-like flavor ! Smooth finish. Now its my favorite drink !
Extremely complicated. Non age statement, but with flavor you could expect from a 20+ year. Problem with it is that the flavor goes away quickly, making you have to drink more.
Liked, but not loved. Not nuanced enough for me and a bit too peat- heavy/forward than I like. Nose is a tad too one-note. Like the semi-bright yet smoke finish.
Don't know much about Dalmore, but this was surprisingly pleasant. My rating might not be generous enough.
