Gouden Carolus Single Malt
Het Anker // Belgium
Het Anker in Mechelen, Belgium have been brewing beer for 5 generations. Gouden Carolus Single Malt is a whisky pot-distilled from the mash of the brewery's Tripel beer (malted barley, water, yeast). It benefits from double-maturation mostly in first-fill bourbon barrels, followed by extra-finishing in custom Het Anker barrels specified by the distillery. This is an update to the 2009 release of their whisky with the same name.

"This single malt from Het Anker pours with a golden straw color and invites sipping with aromas of cereal and lemon peel. It's light-bodied with a palate that offers notes of honey, grain, pear, and lemon meringue. It's a delightful dram, and not just for Belgian beer lovers."
