    Boring but okay

  9. The_Osprey scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Macallan Quest 40%. Consumed Jan 2020. Quite a lot of spirit notes on the aroma. It's fruity - but not in a cask-led way - it's more fruity esters from young spirit. Apple and melon. The spirit smells young but the sherry notes give an old impression. Interesting. Taste is very watery up front. Slowly develops a warmth and a muted sherry cask character. Tastes like it's 20%. Crazy drinkability here. There's not much to it though. Some brandy flavours and soft sherry influence. A vaguely salty spiritous linger. Later there's a definite marzipan note. Ultimately the American oak takes hold in the aftertaste. Builds some nuance over the course of a glass but never really gets going. Still a perfectly nice-enough dram but i will not be buying again. 3.2/77

  10. Malthead19 scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    - even if there is no age on it, there is one in the aroma
    Maturity / age clearly recognizable
    - mature, harmonious, tasty, nice tasty whisky
    - definitely better than the Fine Oak 10 J. or the GOLD
    - but unfortunately this Macallan stays for 50-60 €
    below expectations
    - tasty, easy to drink, but too expensive for the quality
    • Nose
      soft, very harmonious and pleasant, sweetness, sherry, red fruits, ripe sweet apricot, soft character
    • Taste
      very soft start, further soft development in the mouth, sweetness, vanilla, sweet fruits, sweet sherry,
    • Finish
      short, crisp, spicy finish;
      short strong aftertaste (hint of chocolate)

    A young Macallan in a practical liter bottle, but unfortunately too expensive. Quite interesting, slightly better than the Amber, but ....
    [Color gold;
    • Nose
      74 74
      light aromas: sherry, nuts, honey, cereals, a little vanilla;
    • Taste
      75 75
      mild, surprisingly watery, fruity, sweet, beautiful vanilla, some tobacco, oak; fairly one-dimensional;
    • Finish
      75 75
      medium-length finish, in the finish slightly bitter oak;
