The Macallan Quest Bottling Note
The Macallan Quest was originally released for the Travel Retail market, and is made with four varieties of cask - bourbon casks, sherry-seasoned European oak casks, sherry-seasoned American oak casks, and hogsheads. The name comes from the length at which the folks behind Macallan go to in order to acquire such casks for the whisky to age in. We still like our idea of it being a story about throwing an evil chime hoop into a massive sherry cask...
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Gentle lemon notes arrive first, with milk chocolate and butterscotch leaping out afterwards.
Palate: Slightly spicier than the nose, with warming oak and cinnamon developing underneath caramel notes.
Finish: Touches of raisin and vanilla pod.
