To Ed's point, Batavia Arrack is not aged in the sense we know with rum. There is typically a nominal amount of time in the large wood vats post distillation - can be up/around 6 months - but after that it's usually steel tanks for shipping out. You will pick up some interesting notes from the hardwood - a teak variety (it's Indonesia, after all), but don't look to the flavors you expect from oak. There are odd lots of aged Batavia Arrack out there, but it's not by design that it's aged!
