The Stag, the King and the Hero.

Alexander Matheson, a trader who made his fortune in illegal opium imports from the Far East, founded the 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 to thank for Dalmore's signature twelve-progned stag included on all Dalmore bottles. The story of the stag goes back to 1263, when the head of clan Mackenzie heroically saved Scottish King Alexander the Third, with a single arrow to end the Stag's attempt. This distillery boasts with producing one of the most expensive Whiskies in the World, and for being the first to ever export Malt Whisky.

The Dalmore 15 Year Old was aged in two steps. First, an initial maturation for twelve years in American white oak casks, followed by a final maturation (finish) for three years in three different Sherry woods - Amoroso (A type of Oloroso), Apostles (Palo Cortado) and Matusalem (Oloroso). All three Sherry types were sourced from Gonzalez Byass, a legendary Sherry producer, with whom The Dalmore has an exclusive arrangement. The Dalmore 15 Year Old is influenced by the Sherry finishing, but hasn't been overwhelmed, which makes this Highland Scotch a real treat.

Good and smooth. Finish is not quite my taste

Chris,
You can't go wrong. If you're looking for a complicated, sweet malt whisky, but don't want to spend on 18 year+ whisky, try this on.
Jonathon
Jonathon,
Extremely smooth, vanilla and fruit notes at the nose.
Bryan
Bryan,
I'm not sure what else you could ask for...complex with a smooth finish.
