Kilchoman Netherlands Small Batch No. 3
After a year’s break, the Dutch Kilchoman importer Bresser & Timmer has now released the Netherlands Small Batch No. 3.
The basis of the whiskies in the 2019 introduced new series of Small Batch Releases for selected markets is always an already finished Machir Bay vatting or Machir Bay Collaborative Vatting , i.e. a whisky with 46% alcohol strength, which was previously matured for approx. 5 years predominantly in bourbon barrels and 5-15% in oloroso sherry casks. This vatting is then married with an additional special cask.
For the Netherlands Small Batch No. 3 the additional cask is an STR cask (shaved, toasted and recharred ex-red wine cask). The proportions are given as 70% bourbon, 5% sherry and 25% STR.
