The Dalmore King Alexander III
Top 10 Spirits 2012
One of the most recognizable emblems in Scotland is the royal emblem of a twelve-pointed stag that adorns every bottle of The Dalmore Scotch. The finest of these expressions may well be named after King Alexander III, who allowed the Clan MacKenzie the honor of using that royal emblem for saving him in 1263. The malt is rich, both on the nose and on the palate, with a finish that can last until the next meal. As elegant a spirit as Scotland can produce, the mouthfeel is a mouth-full of brown sugar-covered comfort food in the form of Scotch.
