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.
For the Sweden Small Batch No. 1 the additional cask is a bit unorthodox, but still consequent concerning the whole series an Oloroso Sherry Hogshead. The result is 85% Bourbon, and 15% Sherry.
