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 4th Small Batch for the United Kingdom, released in August 2022, the additional cask is once again an STR Cask (Shaved, Toasted and Recharred Red Wine Cask) after a long time. The proportions of the individual casks in the vatting are given as 70% Bourbon, 5% Oloroso Sherry and 25% STR.
