Hailing from the majestic Highlands of Scotland, Dalmore King Alexander III Single Malt Scotch is a regal tribute to the art of whisky blending. This expression, without an age statement, defies convention, featuring an intricate assemblage of malt whiskies matured in six different types of wood—French wine casks, Madeira drums, sherry butts, Marsala barrels, port pipes, and bourbon barrels. The resulting spirit is a tour de force, harmonizing an array of diverse elements into a single, unified experience. With an ABV of 40%, it offers a nuanced drinking experience that captivates both seasoned whisky enthusiasts and newcomers alike. This remarkable bottling is exclusively available at Third Base Market & Spirits, your gateway to the pinnacle of whisky craftsmanship.
The whisky presents a rich, deep amber color with golden hues, encapsulating its complex aging journey through varied wooden vessels.
Upon nosing, one encounters a dazzling bouquet of red berry fruits, accompanied by nuanced notes of Seville oranges, tropical fruits, and spiced molasses. The wine and port influences are palpable, intertwined with subtle layers of vanilla and cinnamon.
The first sip opens with a lush sweetness, a tapestry of plum, fig, and stewed apples. This initial fruitiness gracefully yields to deeper complexities: hints of spiced chocolate, anise, and a rich nuttiness. With each tasting, new subtleties like clove, coffee, and a gentle smokiness unfold, rendering each sip a discovery in itself.
The finish is grandiose yet refined—long, elegant, and full-bodied. An echo of the palate’s diverse flavors, it leaves a lasting impression of warm spices, dried fruits, and a sophisticated oaky dryness.
This whisky's multifaceted profile makes it an excellent companion to an array of gourmet experiences. It pairs splendidly with dark chocolate truffles or a rich blue cheese, emphasizing the whisky's inherent sweetness and complex flavor composition. Savor it neat or with just a drop of water to unveil its layered intricacies.
Dalmore King Alexander III Single Malt Scotch is a luxurious foray into the essence of Highland whisky, capturing a symphony of flavors within a single glass. Third Base Market & Spirits is proud to offer this unparalleled experience, promising not just a dram, but a journey through Scotland’s rich whisky heritage.
Love the King AlexanderIII Dalmore!
A sherry Bomb that I cannot find a single thing wrong with. If ABV was higher I would give it a 5+
