  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I prefer the Prologue K over the Shizuoka Contact S, but not by much. The Prologue K is a little richer and darker, while the Contact S is more vibrant
    • Nose
      Highlighted by light, gentle wood smoke with earthy notes, but also sweet caramel, grilled mangoes and stewed apples. I also get nectarines and peaches from the Shizuoka Contact S, as well as some clever farmy notes and a touch of fennel.
    • Taste
      Great oily mouthfeel. A peppery arrival with creamy vanilla, earthy smoke and sandal wood, as well as tobacco. Water brings out whispers of gingerbread, smoked malt and sweet dulce de leche. There are whispers of orange peel and lychees, but it's certainly not as fruity as the nose.
    • Finish
      More of the above and pretty long too.

    Appearance: Bright, deep gold.

    Nose: Juicy stone fruits, honey, vanilla, spicy.

    Palate: Sweet, nectarine and apricot, lightest of smoke, very spicy.

    Finish: Boozy. Spicy, with deep stone fruits, raisins, light smoke.

    With Water: Necessary at this strength. More oak and more peat come out.

    Overall: Lovely fruit and malt sweetness. Complex and delicious. Love the stone fruit. Best official release yet. ¥
