Small Batch 4
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 4 was exclusively bottled for Birka Cruises – Eckerö line, in a edition of 367 bottles.
Small batch 4 is unpeated and consists of a single 1st fill Bourbon barrel (casks number #2012-519). The whisky prior to this has matured for 3 months in 5 X 40 liter Hungarian oak casks.
08/05/2012 % X 40 liter casks of Hungarian oak were filled. 08/08/2012 they were transfered over to a 200 liter Bourbon barrel.
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.
25/05/2018 The barrel was emptied into our blending tank where the strength of the whisky was reduced from 62% to 56% abv.
In total 367 bottles were produced 25/05/2018. Small batch 4 was bottles exclusively for Birka Cruises – Eckerö Line.
