Small Batch 3
Box Small Batch is the collective name for the editions that are bottled in small editions for a selected and exclusive market. For each Small Batch one or more single barrels are selected. Each edition thus differs from its predecessors.
Even though the flavours are completely different, they still carry a Box Distillery style – a clear distillery character with that little extra, a personal style and expression. Small batch releases are mainly produced for markets outside Sweden.
All Small Batch bottlings contain no artificial colouring and are non chill-filtered.
Small batch 3 was exclusively bottled for Germany, in a edition of 250 bottles
Small batch 3 consists of peated whisky matured for 5,27 years in 90 liter casks of new American oak.
12/09/2012 8 X 90 liter new American oak casks with a toasting grade 3 were filled.
Until October 2014, our casks have matured in a damp warehouse, where they lost slightly more alcohol than expected. Since October 2014 until bottling, the casks have been maturing in a dry environment in warehouse number 3.
19/12/2017 the whiskies were moved to the blending tank where the strength was reduced from 59,8% to 56% abv for bottling.
250 bottles of small batch 3 were bottled 20/12/2017 exclusively for the German market.
