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 3-5 years predominantly in bourbon barrels and 5-15% in oloroso sherry casks. This vatting is then married with an additional special cask.
In the “Exclusive Selection No. 2”, as in the “Exclusive Selection No. 1” and the “Sweden Small Batch No. 1”, the additional cask is a bit unorthodox, but still consequent concerning the whole series, an Oloroso Sherry Hogshead. This time, however, the proportion of sherry in the vatting is somewhat higher: 80% bourbon and 20% oloroso sherry.
