The basis of the whiskies in the 2019 introduced new series of Small Batch Releases 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 3-5 years predominantly in bourbon barrels and 5-15% in oloroso sherry casks. This vatting is then married with an additional special cask. With the usual small batch editions of about 1,260 bottles, this is literally exactly one cask in the vatting. For the double China Small Batch editions, 2 casks are required in each case.
For the China Small Batch No. 1 the additional casks are two Port Hogsheads. The shares are stated as 70% Bourbon, 5% Sherry and 25% Port.
