The basis of the 2019 introduced new series of Small Batch Releases are always a Machir Bay Vatting with 95% Bourbon / 5% Sherry and 46% alcohol strength – i.e. what has been offered as “Machir Bay Collaborative Vatting 5% Sherry” since 2018 for different regional retailers. This vatting is then married to a different 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.
