Kilchoman Sweden Small Batch No. 3
One year after the release of the Sweden Small Batch No. 2, the No. 3 of the series has now been released in Sweden just in time for the Christmas season. It has been available for a few days in the branches of the state monopoly dealer Systembolaget for SEK 699.
The basis of the whiskies in the series of Small Batch Releases for selected markets, which began in 2019, is 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 Sweden Small Batch No. 3, the additional cask is a Pedro Ximénez Sherry Hogshead. The proportions are given as 75% bourbon, 5% oloroso sherry and 20% PX sherry.
