A sextuple-wood bottling from Dalmore. This auspiciously-named dram was matured in wine, Madeira, Sherry, Marsala, Kentucky bourbon and Port casks. King Alexander III is a rich, fruity Highland single malt.
Nose: Malty and utterly Dalmore. Seville orange zest, Parfait Amour, malty cereal, barley and chocolate. Creamy vanilla fudge, tropical fruit with a vaguely vinous quality.
Palate: Medium, rounded. Winter berries, spice, zesty orange. Liqueurs emerge; Gran Marnier, kirsch and Frangelico.
Finish: Peppery with well-integrated oak and the claret makes a last minute appearance.

Purchased my first bottle and was not disappointed. Very smooth and rich whiskey. Nose, pallet and finish were excellent. A top 3 in my collection.

Very, very smooth; perhaps it's the 40.0 ABV, but I find the finish could be better for what your paying for this bottle. The palate is fantastic!

Don't get me wrong this whiskey is really good but it's not 10/10. I think 8/10 is fair purely because there's cheaper better options one of which I will keep a secret until I have purchased as many as I can get my hands at it's current fair price. Whichever whiskey you choose enjoy........

Creamiest scotch I've ever found. Exquisite!!!
22nd November 2016
It is more than 30yrs since I bought a bottle of Highland or Speyside whisky, although I have tasted many. I tasted KA III and bought a bottle. As someone who is not favourable towards Sherried, or Port whiskies etc I found that the tannic quality of the Cab Sav balanced the sweeter casks. This is a masterpiece of blending. Two or three casks blended with a spirit must be difficult enough but to do, but to blend six and yet maintain the character of the foundation spirit and create such balance is truly to be commended.

I do like whiskies from Dalmore (so I am a bit biased). Definitely one of the best Dalmore's I have ever tasted. It has a rather short aftertaste which at the same time is strangely undefinable. Maturing in 4 different casks may be pushing the limit (or just to get our intention). I mean this in a good way as it keeps you guessing and wanting more. Definitely a high class dram you can offer important guests. Beautiful bottle. I need to buy another one (although it is a bit pricey)

Great stuff, possibly the greatest whisky I have tasted to date.
4th October 2016
My (current) favorite. I'm on my 3rd bottle, which is yet unopened, saving it for a special occasion (or until I order another bottle).
5th August 2016
what a beautiful whisky. really exceptional a lovely initial middle and finish. No alcohol burn at all, just a lovely flavour. You can easily sit and drink this all night.

Beautiful dram for any occasion. The only single malt whisky with a 6 cask finish. Complex and smooth with a long finish.
15th June 2016
Beautiful. Just try it.

An Excellent Single Malt, for those special evenings you want to lay back and relax by the fireplace.
12th January 2016
I purchased a bottle of King Alexander III as a gift for my friends 75th birthday. Taking nothing away from the other gifts he received but this was by far his favorite (and mine). I can't say enough good things about this other than WELL WORTH IT!
30th December 2015
A exceptionally smooth whisky with beautiful complex flavours. Nice long finish, just the way i like it. Next best thing after the Dalmore 18.
16th October 2015
10/10 from me and my old man (50 ain't that old?) he got me into whisky ages ago adamant I would hate it... loved my first sip, and since the we have tried many a good Malts (macallan, dalwhinnie, balvennie etc to name a few) so we are strangers to the best the malt world has to offer.ahem, having had all of the Dalmore line (12/15/18yr + the king Alexander) we have came to the conclusion that the King Alexander is THE BEST malt we have ever had! it is simply the Gods nectar... we consider the dalwhinnie 15/ dalmore 15/ balvenie 12 out go to standards, so some might say we set the bar quite high, but hey each to their own... so if the "buyers also bought" led you here don't let the price have you making second thoughts this is worth every drop/penny.
11th September 2015
I fell for whiskeys when I acquired a taste for Macallen and have been tasting other brands to help my curiosityWhile I wouldn't return it as a gift it would not be my first choice at this price
17th April 2015
This was by far my favourite out of all the ones we sampled. I really don't like bourbon much but this one has such a slight aftertaste and a smell of bourbon along with a very smooth finish.
16th March 2015
Malty cereal and barley presence. Sour young oranges, burnt citrus peel. Medium body with oak flavor. No spice. Slight dryness, slight cocoa. Good dram for Dalmore. I like the 18yr still.
28th February 2015
Received this as a sample in the Master of Malt Christmas Festive Selection tasting set, and wow, this was an immediate favorite! The nose has a lot of notes as mentioned by the chaps at MoM, but I also found a light, brown sugary quality after it opened up a few minutes. The palate is extraordinary, smooth, and pleasingly complex with citrus and spice, but the finish surprised me most. In my opinion, peppered and oaky notes in a finish lead me to expect a certain bite, but this is one was silky smooth. Unfortunately this is out of my price range, but I've already started saving my pennies!
10th February 2015
The best Scotch I have had so far. I highly recommend it.
29th January 2015
Having tried a fairly good selection of scotch over the past few years, I have been exploring some of the tastes the highland has to offer. This was a superb dram and really took me by surprise. Complex notes with deep flavours and spice. Seemed to evolve with each drop.
23rd April 2014
£100+ and only 40%???
11th February 2014
Still the best scotch I have very tried, and I've tried a few over $1000+ bottles. If you're willing to pay $200 for a bottle, there is no better value.
29th January 2014
Had my first dram of the King with a posh curry last weekend - the perfect combination. This is a seriously zingy liquid - the colour was rich red/brown, literally asking you to tuck in. The overriding flavour that came through for me was that of chocolate liquor, with a hint of winter spice. Perfect for a cold evening and a great alternative to a Highland Park 25yo which is my fave winter tipple. A very unique treat and at the price I think this makes a very welcome addition to a high quality malt collection - seriously, if you like a curry this provides a great finish.
18th December 2013
I got a 50cl sample of this from a Dalmore 15yo gift pack. The nose I thought was truly wonderful. It had nice complexity to it, with many layers of fruit, chocolate, and light peat to discover. The palate was also fairly complex, but seemed disconnected with the nose, as if each the six woods made an appearance in either the nose or palate, but not both. For example, the palate was drier than the nose would indicate. All in all, it was pretty good, though I can't see myself paying £112 for a whole bottle.
16th December 2013
Had a glass of this last night at a restaurant - think it'll be difficult to find anything better for a cold winter's evening. Chocolate and vanilla came through, with a lovely pepper finish. Colour is beautiful.
15th December 2013
This is ne of the truly fine scotches that keep the pallet guessing. As agreed this is a complex taste with a lot going on but extremely enjoyable! Must ensure there is a back up in the cupboard!
9th November 2013
Probably one of the finest drams I've tasted. Glad to have a second bottle, the first didn't last! Superb.
12th April 2013
This is my favourite. Definitely the best Dalmore I ever tasted. This is suitable for people who appreciate a high quality smooth scotch, and who appreciate taste rather than just the alcohol. Would strongly recommend. If its above your budget, try the 18 year old Dalmore. Also great.

Don't get me wrong it taste like a story, but there is a little too much going on for me. If you told me I was drinking something other than scotch... I might just believe you.
7th December 2012

The flavors are fantastic, with a very smooth swallow that then releases a sweet peat taste.
