Whisky Reviews for Gouden Carolus Sherry Oak

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.44 points

  1. whisky313 did not rate this whisky Specialist

    DESCRIPTION:

    Gouden Carolus Single Malt Sherry Oak (46% vol.) Is a special taste expression from Stokerij De Molenberg. Just like the award-winning Gouden Carolus Single Malt whisky, this edition is also distilled from the malt batter of the Gouden Carolus Tripel beer.

    After basic maturation, this whisky was enriched with a selection of Oloroso sherry barrels, made from 100% American oak. The result: an intense, fruity whisky with notes of matured fruit, vanilla and dark chocolate.

    Yes, it comes in a 50 cl bottle (for the moment, let’s hope they change that as they did with the standard release and bump it up to 70 cl in due time when stock allows it) and yes, it’s a NAS, but those are overall very minor ‘flaws’ (and don’t mean much as this is natural color and un-chill filtered as well) in what is a very enjoyable, well-made whisky.

      On the nose it is quite rich and vibrant on fruit notes: sultanas and raisins, with ripe, red apples, quite some honey, malty/grainy notes and gingerbread. Quite lovely and complex. Full and balanced, just as we like it.
    • Taste
      84 84
      The palate is slightly less complex, but it stills delivers a very nice array of red fruit notes, honey, gingerbread and (baking) spices, with some clove and a faint hint of white pepper as well.
    • Finish
      80 80
      It’s on the finish that it can’t really keep on delivering. It’s not too short, but there is a sharpness prior to a syrupy and savory note.

    Pleasant dram! Sherry oak finish is certainly noticable. Fruity, woody, spicy, vanilla and dark chocolate in the finish...
    allthough i like the regular Gouden Carolus Single Malt more, this sherry wood finish makes it lose its "beery" and "bitter" character that i like a bit.

    Beautiful fruity and soft dram. Typical summer dram. Nice and round with a lovely Carolus touch. Recommended. 85 points because of age and the fact that it is not a BOM. Wonderful aperative. Must have!
