    Ok whisky for such a young age. Tasted after the (highly recommended!) distillery tour and bought a bottle to drink at home. Price is ok, but don't expect something really special, for me it's just that whisky to drink while playing cards with friends.

      Some fruits and wood smells. Hints of banana and a little vanilla.

      Ok, again the fruits and a bit of wood. Not that special for me.

      short to medium, some fruits in the aftertaste. But I prefer a longer aftertaste.

    that copper in color, slightly oily movement in the glass, slow thick tears, beautiful uncolored whisky
    • Nose

      very fruity perfumed, vanilla pudding, full, those purple noses candies (cuberdons) that fill me, it really gives me chills, vanilla shake, warm fruit cake, beautiful wood influences subtle oak but well present and so much more, really beautiful .

      soft, oily, full fruity taste, light chocolate, wood influences are softer than in the nose, a little less rich in taste, I expected a fuller taste, but still very good. the alcohol is very tolerable mild to moderately irritating

      slightly smoky, woody, and mouthwashes moderately long. first score of his own country ... proud

    Nice nose, light fumigation and bourbon barrel. The taste is weaker, youthful and aggressive, and there is almost no aftertaste.

    Rock Solid Belgian Single Malt Whisky.
    This Gouden Carolus Single Malt is a very tasty and smooth whisky!
    Did you know this whisky was distilled out of the mash of their "Gouden Carolus Triple" beer?
