Last weekend we went to our friends in Tuchola Forest. As it happens in our country, the weather to the very end is always a mystery, which makes it difficult to choose the right drink. Once I have decided that this will be but a single malt, I had to consider what kind of the whisky it is supposed to be. Time to go was getting shorter, as I could entrust the weather forecast, which promised a beautiful weekend. After verification the shelves in the local Alma Market, I took into consideration Arran 10 years old and Bowmore 12 years old. I chose Arran, recognizing that the unpeated whisky will fit more for sipping on a warm evening.
