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.
At the beginning of December 2021, the 3rd Small Batch for the United Kingdom was released. The additional cask here is a Sauternes Hogshead, as is very often the case with the worldwide Small Batch releases in 2021. The proportions of the individual casks in the vatting are given as 70% Bourbon, 5% Oloroso Sherry and 25% Sauternes.
