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 multiple rare Sherry woods. The Dalmore 15 Year Old is influenced by the Sherry finishing, but hasn't been overwhelmed, which makes this Highland Scotch a real treat.
