The embodiment of bravery
THE DALMORE KING ALEXANDER III
In 1263, Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, took a bold decision to stand up and be counted, and felled a charging stag which attacked King Alexander III of Scotland. In return for saving his life, the grateful King gifted the 12-pointed Royal Stag emblem to the Mackenzie Clan as a reward. When descendants of the Mackenzie Clan took over the ownership of The Dalmore distillery in 1867, they continued to honour this brave act and proudly put the 12-pointed Royal Stag on the bottle. To this day, the Stag still adorns each and every bottle of The Dalmore. To celebrate the pioneering and innovative values of the Mackenzie Clan, our master Distiller has painstakingly created the only single malt in the world to unite a unique six cask finish for one outstanding achievement. Spirits matured in ex-bourbon casks. Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, Madeira barrels, Marsala casks, Port pipes and Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques are combined in perfect harmony to create a uniquely complex, yet smooth malt. This is the embodiment of brave creativity and a lifetime’s experience. The legend behind this whisky dates back to 1263, when a member of the Mackenzie clan saved King Alexander III from a charging stag. This heroic act is captured in a painting that hangs in Edinburgh's national gallery. This whisky is totally unique as it’s matured in a combination of 6 different casks: Bourbon, Sherry, Madeira, Masala, Port and Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, giving a truly and hugely complex dram. The aromas and flavours change every time you bring the glass to your mouth - a true masterpiece!
