    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?

  5. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    It is a good whisky for its age (44 months, 30 ex-bourbon and 14 ex-'Anker 'barrels), but it is (too) expensive. I think this is due to the low production capacity of the distillery. The Anchor barrels come from Portugal, but I do not sample what the wood was used for before.
    • Nose
      Grass, vanilla, citrus, little dried peach / apricot
    • Taste
      Young, green banana. Green, sour apple. Peach candy. Soft but thin.
    • Finish
      Short: Green apple, slightly sweet and bitter
