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.
For the Japan Small Batch No. 1 the additional cask is a Madeira Hogshead. The shares are stated as 70% Bourbon, 5% Sherry and 25% Madeira.
