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 “UK Small Batch No. 2” the additional cask is a PX Sherry Hogshead. In addition, the Oloroso Sherry content here is 10% and not 5% as usual with the Small Batch releases.
