On Czolpinska Dune.

Miscellanea My whisky collection Testing / Tasting
(80 points)


In one of the last weekends father in law visited me. Summer is in full so we decided not to waste time and spend it actively. We chose to take a trip to the Slowinski National Park, namely to Czolpinska Dune, located on the west side of Lebsko Lake. I believe that this is one of the most interesting places on the coast, where there are not many tourists. Upon arrival at the car park we walked about 2 km through the forest, until we reached the dunes. Czolpińska Dune is quite high, about 40 meters above sea level, while varied, alternately we were going up the hill to go down for a while. After several such series, we felt that on the hill we will see the sea, but we got the next valley and hill. And finally, a relatively short passage through the forest and prize – a beautiful, wide, empty beach. Despite the high air temperature the water in the Baltic Sea was very brisk.

On the road you should bring plenty of water and something to snack on. Besides we were accompanied by 180 ml bottle of Taketusuru Pure Malt 12 years old.
Taketsuru name comes from the father of Japanese whisky and founder of Nikka Whisky, Masataka Taketsuru. Pure malt is a mixture of different single malts, actually you can meet more often blended malt or vatted malt expression. On the blog I have already described this type of whisky, and it was a Johnny Walker Green Label. In Taketsuru Pure Malt we deal with whisky from both Nikka’s Japanese single malt distillieries, Yoichi and Miyagiykyo.

    Jako degustator w/w „buteleczki zgodziłbym się z określeniem „wody życia” dodałbym Japońskiej doskonałości

      “Woda życia” na pewno, ale do doskonałości to trochę brakuje 😉
