Small Batch 8
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 8 was exclusively bottled for China in a 145 bottle edition.
Small batch 8 consists of 100% peated whisky, all of which has matured in 3 different cask types, a so called Triple wood. First 40 liter Hungarian oak casks, then Bourbon barrel and finally 40-liter Oloroso sherry casks.
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.
01/10/2018 the casks were emptied and the strength reduced from 60,9% to 56% abv.
In total 145 bottles were produced 02/10/2018 of Small Batch 8 which was sold exclusively to China.
