Small batch 5
High Coast 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 High Coast 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 5 was exclusively bottled for China in a 153-bottle edition.
Small batch 5 is 100% unpeated and has matured in a 1st fill Bourbon Quater cask, number #2011-391.
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.
20/12/2018 the cask was emptied giving us 78kg of whisky and the strength was reduced from 59,58% to 56% abv.
153 bottles were produced 20/12/2018 of Small batch 5 and was sold exclusively to China.
