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 USA Small Batch No. 4 the additional cask is again (like in No. 2) a Madeira Hogshead, only this time the proportion is 30% (i.e. 65% bourbon / 5% Oloroso sherry / 30% Madeira) and not 70% bourbon / 5% sherry and 25% Madeira as with No. 2.
