The basis of the whiskies in the series of Small Batch Releases for selected countries, 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 3-5 years predominantly in bourbon barrels and 5-15% in oloroso sherry casks. This vatting is then married with an additional special cask.
For the Belgium Small Batch No. 1 the additional cask is an STR cask (Shaved, Toasted and Re-charred Red Wine Hogshead). The shares are stated as 70% Bourbon, 5% Sherry and 25% STR.
