    • Nose
      85 85
      Very sweet and fruity with a bit of spiciness. It starts with notes of vanilla, honey and caramel fudge. A bit sweet-fruity with notes like lemoncake, caramelized apples and a little raisin. At the end the spiciness of cinnamon and oak.
    • Taste
      86 86
      A bit similar to the nose with notes of vanilla, honey and chocolate easter eggs. Followed by some toffees. Apple pie and again the raisin. And also at the end cinnamon and oak.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Quite long. The vanilla keeps sticking with cinnamon, oak and a little hint of ginger.

  11. Gris scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Extremely fresh, light and fruity. Notes of oranges, lemons and apples. It also reveals a touch of vanilla and light spices. Light woody notes.
    • Taste
      We are on something very sweet and sweet. Always very fruity with oranges but also dried apricots. We also find this little tip of vanilla. Not as subtle as the nose could say but it is to say the least pleasant.
    • Finish
      Short, a little too much, sweet and fruity. It was light and in the same idea it seems to evaporate in the mouth.

  13. Drochaid scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The Macallan Quest matured in four different oak barrels made of European and American oak. For more aroma of citrus and vanilla. It also used ex bourbon barrels and American sherry casks.
