Kilchoman Sweden Small Batch No. 2
A good two years after the “Sweden Small Batch No. 1”, the “Sweden Small Batch No. 2” bottled at the end of 2021 was released a few days ago.
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.
In the “Sweden Small Batch No. 2”, the additional cask is a Sauternes wine cask, as in many other Small Batch releases of the year 2021. The proportions are given as 75% bourbon, 5% oloroso sherry and 20% Sauternes.
