We are on day 3 of our Travel Exclusives Week.
This time we feature a travel retail exclusive from The Macallan distillery. This is a no age state single malt Scotch whisky called Terra, from their Quest Collection.
Terra is aged in first fill sherry seasoned oak casks, both European and American oak barrels.
No color added and bottled at 43.8% abv.
Immediately the color stands out with a darker, almost reddish hue that clearly comes from the sherry influence.
Mike and I had completely different opinions on this one so I'd love to hear from you as to what you think of Terra. My preferred way to enjoy this is neat.
Color: Dark with a red hue
Taste: A little peppery on the front end that makes way for waves of sweetened fruits. Cherry, dark berries, a little caramel towards the back end.
Finish: Silky mouth feel with a lingering medium/long finish that remains sweet
One of my favorite whiskys we've reviewed, but is it really worth the $170 retail? That's a whole different debate.
You can hear our opposing views (and my NY accent slip out) in the video review below:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
