Shizuoka Prologue K Single Malt
Whisky Region: Japanese Whisky
Discover the debut release from the highly anticipated Shizuoka distillery. Established in 2016 by Gaia Flow, the renowned Japanese importer for boutique independent bottlers such as Blackadder, this distillery boasts stills acquired from legendary producers like Karuizawa.
The Shizuoka Prologue K is a three-year-old single malt whisky that was distilled using the wash still from Karuizawa and aged in ex-bourbon casks. This expertly crafted whisky is a testament to the skill and expertise of the distillers at Shizuoka, who have produced a truly exceptional spirit.
Distilled from half Scottish imported malt and half Japanese malt, it was then aged for 3 years in bourbon barrels, before being bottled at 55.5%. With only 5,000 bottles released to the Japanese market and initially sold through ballot, this bottle is a rare find in Australia. It is the first wave of new Japanese whisky distilleries to watch out for.
