I really like Dalmore as a distillery but generally don’t have a very high opinion of the official distillery bottlings. Most of them are thin and watery at 40% ABV, and the price is quite high relative to the quality of the whisky. I think there is much better value seeking out Dalmore from independent bottlers. I have two bottles of Dalmore aged 21 and 24 years from Signatory Vintage, aged in sherry butts, at cask strength that are waiting ot be enjoyed. And one bottle aged 18 years from Duncan Taylor from a sherry butt, also at cask strength, that I am enjoying immensely now. To be fair I have not tried the King Alexander, but I have tasted the 12 and 18 YO and the Cigar Malt. I was underwhelmed by all of them.
