Batch #00-V4 (the sherried one with the orange label) is a release of 3,439 bottles blended from 28% Lowland grain whisky and 72% malt whisky from Speyside, the Highlands and islands and with a small percentage of peated malt from Islay. Mostly first-fill sherry seasoned casks and refill ex-bourbon barrels. Bottled without chill filtration or added colour.
