Shizuoka Distillery is the most important Japanese distillery you haven't heard of. The distillery boasts of two unusual pot stills that add a profound influence to the resulting spirit. There is the Pot Still "K" - a vintage pot still salvaged from Japanese ghost distillery Karuizawa. There is also the Pot Still "W" - the only wood-fired pot still in the world used by a whisky distillery (modern distilleries use gas-fired stills).
This Contact S Single Malt is the distillery's third release - made with a blend of whisky from Pot Still "K" and whisky from Pot Still "W". The marriage reveals a remarkably complex and balanced spirit with a memorable waxy texture. Sufficiently robust and yet surprisingly smooth for a young cask strength malt.
