The Macallan Quest Collection will replace The Macallan 1824 Collection of Select Oak, Whisky Maker’s Edition and Estate Reserve. This quarter of whiskies reveals the true influence of the Edrington-owned brand’s sherry-seasoned oak casks in exceptional quality, natural colour and full flavors in the heart of The Macallan single malt whisky and The Macallan Quest Collection.
The four expressions Quest, Lumina, Terra and Enigma will hit the shelves at Singapore’s Changi Airport this month.
The first whisky in the range, The Macallan Quest (40% abv), has been created using four different cask types: European and American oak Sherry seasoned, American ex-Bourbon and hogshead casks. It is priced US$64 for a 70cl bottle.
The Macallan Lumina (41.3% abv) uses three casks: European and American oak Sherry seasoned and hogshead casks, and has an RRP of US$100.
The third expression, The Macallan Terra (43.8% abv), has been aged exclusively in first-fill Sherry casks and is priced at US$165.
The Macallan Enigma (44.9% abv) is described as the “pinnacle” of the range. The whisky, priced at US$250, has been matured exclusively in first-fill Sherry butts.
Each expression is a new chapter to exploring the casks, flavours and aromas of The Macallan.
