New Macallan in Wrocław
The Macallan TERRA Highland Single Malt / 43,8% / – In the late 2017 Macallan Distillery unveiled a new range of four whiskies exclusively for Global Travel Retail, The Macallan Quest Collection. It consists of four non age statement expressions – Quest, Lumina, Terra and Enigma – and celebrates the distillery’s “passionate and tireless quest for oak”. The Quest Collection replaced the current travel retail range, The Macallan 1824 Collecton, which included Select Oak, Whisky Maker’s Edition and Estate Reserve, from January 2018. The third expression in line is called Terra and comprises Macallans aged exclusively in first fill American and European oak sherry seasoned casks sourced from Tevasa and Vasyma cooperages from Jerez de la Frontera. It is bottled at 43.8% abv.
