Info:

Gouden Carolus Single Malt is a refined whisky distilled from the mash of Gouden Carolus Tripel beer. A first for Belgium are the hand hammered, copper pot stills, in which the pure mash is distilled. The result is a pure and clear distillate.

The ensuing aging in classic Bourbon barrels followed by a further aging in Het Anker barrels (wooden barrels made by a barrel maker in accordance with our own specifications) results in a refined whisky with a full and balanced taste.

Gouden Carolus isn’t the first Belgian Single Malt I’ve tasted or bought, it certainly has quickly become my go to whisky to help people introduce to the wonderful world of whisky. It is surprisingly soft to drink, lacking the harsh burning sensation of some more aged whisky varieties. But it also features just a hint of “crème brulée”, which manifests itself after a little while.

Nose: attractive nose, despite the obvious youth. Fruity notes (apricot jam and apples), moving to fruit gums and eventually also nice Guimauve / marshmallow notes. There’s a slight Irishness to it. Quite some vanilla. Scented wax candles. Hints of fresh oak shavings as well. Slightly ahead of its age, good. Mouth: full-flavoured, very malty, still quite fruity although there is also a slightly harsh grainy note (which may disappear with some extra years). Vanilla, soft ginger and pepper. Finish: medium long, drying with the oak moving forward. Nutmeg and vanilla.

This new Gouden Carolus single malt is better than I expected. The obvious beer notes of the previous release are gone and replaced by classic malty notes and spiced fresh oak influence.
