I spent one of last weekends in the Kania Lodge, in the Kashubian Lakeland near the Kartuzy. Half an hour by car from Gdynia. Recommendable place where you can relax from the everyday hustle and bustle and work. On-site you have lake, bicycles, boats, sauna, very good food, friendly service and a sheep … Kania Lodge is housed by owner who comes from New Zeland and his Polish wife.

I’m not a great enthusiast of wine, but on place you have a lot to choose in this area, especially with available expert advisory of the owner. In my climates, I saw on the shelf the Isle of Arran 10 years old, which I wrote about on the blog. This time I also did not neglect to try it.

Preventing the wine attack on me I went there together with the Old Pulteney 12 years old.

The Old Pulteney distillery was founded in 1826 and is situated in the N of Scotland in the town of Wick. Qualified to Highlands. The official sources still says that it is the northermost distillery on the mainland. However, this name was taken from them by the newly opened Wolfburn distillery, located in Caithness, 350 meters from functioning in the years 1821-1850 distillery of the same name.
Old Pulteney is owned by the Inver House Distillers, which owns also: The Speyburn-Glenlivet Distillery, Balblair Distillery, Knockdhu Distillery and Balmenach Distillery.

My companion is unfortunately colored, chillfiltered and bottled with 40% ABV, it’s hard, but somehow I will handle it.

N: fresh, then sweet, vanilla, something like chamomile, anise, slightly herbal, a touch of sea, a little salty with seaweeds;

T: quite oily, fast growing, clear notes of the changing wood (active casks that give taste), honey, slightly spicy, ripe red fruits, even a little salty;

F: long with notes of oak and ripe red fruit.

Score: 89.

Although the equipment initially did not seem particularly strong (coloring, filtration, 40% ABV), the wine did not beat us. Very good single malt.

And a little swimming in the lake, in the end everyone deserves it.
