  1. Falang scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    What an unexpected surprise! Tasted this one together with the Prologue K and they are both startling! Truly exceptional craftsmanship, and that for 3 year old dram! Daiko Nakamura from Shizuoka distillery visited Kilchoman distillery some years ago, got inspired and decided to change his life and build a distillery of its own. And wauw, he has been doing a great job! You can taste the patience and the effort! The Prologue W is complex with salty, oily and kippery elements build into a second layer of delicious sweets. Wauw! Can not wait to get my hands on more of this firewater... Or to visit the plant at the banks of the Abe Nakagawachi River one day!

      Perfume upon entry with gentle kippery elements like smoked salmon, cooked rice, seawater, some smoke. Second layer of sweetness with rubberswood and sugarcane.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Elderflower in the taste with narratives of blooming long grasses and foreign wetlands in the summer. Poppy! With more floral touches. Hint of lavender and some very subtle gassy touches. Hint of smoke. Wauw!
    • Finish
      83 83
      Short to medium short finish. Dies out fast but beautiful. Smoke seems to rule the finish, hint of burned coal, soldier-cookies and also a touch of blood (metallic).
