Gulden Draak Cuvée Prestige BourbonGulden Draak Cuvée Prestige Bourbon
Notes: The exceptional Cuvée Prestige currently exists in two versions: Gulden Draak Cuvée Prestige Bourbon and the Gulden Draak Cuvée Prestige Laphroaig.

For this first exceptional Cuvée Prestige, we let the Gulden Draak Classic rest for 8 weeks after maturing in specially selected Bourbon barrels. These barrels come from America and were only used twice in the original distillery. After maturing, the beer undergoes its classic refermentation with the unique and own wine yeast, which will ensure a perfect balance. The typical taste properties of the Gulden Draak Classic harmonize excellently with the warm notes of honey, raisins, vanilla and wood (and the slightly sweet aromas) of the Bourbon barrels. We can therefore safely speak of an extra refined barley wine, a delicious and original tasting beer to enjoy in moderation!

De Belgiuminabox. En copa de huevo Gulden Draak. Estudiando y jugando a FFXV. Toque a bourbon bien integrado, y disfrutable de principio a fin. Sin embargo, le falta algo que justifique su elevado precio. Y se sube a la cabeza un montón a pesar de tampoco tener tanto alcohol
