The incredible Macallan Quest Collection is a set of limited edition releases from the famous Speyside distillery that brings four fantastic single malt whiskies that explore the effects of different cask types on premium liquid. The Quest, Enigma, Terra and Lumina expressions were released exclusively for travel retail, so they’re hard-to-get, collectible and very limited in quantity.
The Macallan Quest celebrates the lengthy journey that the distillery’s Master of Wood takes to source the finest quality casks from around the world. Matured in four different cask types, sourced a total of 20,000 miles apart, it’s a fruity and light whisky that brings lots of vanilla, oak and citrus to the table.
The Lumina explores what happens when whisky matured in three different cask types is brought together and the results are simply fantastic. Rich wood, citrus zest, subtle spices and a kick of ginger blend together seamlessly in this creamy and bold expression.
The Terra is a rich and powerful whisky that is made from spirit matured exclusively in first-fill seasoned sherry oak casks. Winter berries, cinnamon, ginger and sweet dried fruits mingle on your nose and palate while rich, woody spices linger in the background. Complex and well-rounded.
The Quest Collection culminates in this astounding dram that showcases all of the best traits of a sherry matured Macallan whisky. First-fill sherry casks sourced from the finest cooperage in Jerez, Spain, were used for this one and they’ve given the spirit a rich, creamy and flavour packed character. An absolutely masterful creation.
