Good sipping rum. Recommended for starters who do not want to spend a lot of money in a good rum.
I had this at Don Q's tasting room and store in San Juan. Definitely a couple steps up from Bacardi. A little more alcohol aroma than I'd like, but fairly smooth taste with a bit of a bourbon lean. Borderline for sipping. Excellent in a Rum and Coke or Cuba Libre.
By labelling this a cocktail rum people think I am doing it an injustice. It's actually a lovely oak barreled flavour profile but the issue is its a very sweet so would be interested in the hydrometer testing on it ....
Decent for the price. Nose is medium rum. Taste is acceptable in shots. Decent bottle here for 19.99.
A sippable rum that is fairly cheap. Flavors are definitely oriented towards cigar smokers. Very similar flavor, actually, to Flor de Cana.
Only a few flavours but a strong taste of oak and vanilla
Je suis habitué de payer plus pour des rhums qui n'arrivent pas à ce qualibre. Don Q fait à mon avis d'excellents rhums à bon prix.
Celui ci est doux et savoureux moment de simplicité.
Not very original but a bit of warmness that is really enoyable.
Sous son look de rhum à cocktails (top en daiquiri) se cache un vrai et honnête rhum de dégustation. À laisser aérér un bon quart d'heure pour profiter au mieux de l'expérience.
Plus abordable que le Havana 7 ans par exemple dans le même style.
La bouteille est relookee et affiche la nature du blend (3-8 ans à l'arrière).
Helles honiggelb im Glas
In der Nase ein kleiner Strauss mit frischgepflückten Blumen und frischen tropischen Früchten umgeben von einem hauch Vanille.
Im Gaumen sehr mild und ? Wer hat meinem Rum die Aromen gekaut !? Ah, doch da sind Spuren von Vanille und Früchte. Das Ganze wirkt etwas wässerig und verdünnt aber dennoch harmonisch und lecker.
Im Abgang erstaunlich lang ein wenig nach frisch gepresstem Zuckerrohr.
Ein junger Aromatischer Rum für Einsteiger oder zum Mixen.
Bright honey yellow in the glass
In the nose a small bouquet of freshly picked flowers and fresh tropical fruits surrounded by a hint of vanilla.
Very mild on the palate and? Who chewed the aromas of my rum? Ah, but there are traces of vanilla and fruits. The whole thing looks a bit watery and diluted but still harmonious and delicious.
In the finish surprisingly long a little after freshly pressed sugar cane.
A young aromatic rum for beginners or for mixing.
A high alcohol taste, but does smooth out with mild oak, vanilla flavours.
I did not know what to really expect from this rum as it was not one that I had researched. It was weak on flavor. I will not buy this one again.
This rum mayby isn't so expressive, but is decent. In my opinion finish has some bitter tasty - that is cons for it. The biggest adventages is its smells, really nice.
On the nose are harsh high notes of nail polish/varnish, which give way to sweet caramel. Taste is also sweet, with a medium-light body and finish. It's fairly boring, but what do you expect?
This uncomplicated rum could be a workhorse for mixed drinks, but there are better options available.
6- (originally 5, which seems overly harsh in retrospect)
Nothing really special though nice for a "daily" rum! Didn't blow me away, didn't make me wanna stop drinking so a worthy 6!
medium intensity aroma, fruity with warming alcohol and dry, to harsh conclusion for me
Vanilj i doften. Och även i smaken. Lite fat smak. Kryddig. Ok.
Sampled Don Q Anejo rum and for a 3 year rum it's not bad but there are better choices around. Might be good for mixing.
Cuba libre, daiquiri, or my fav now: dark n stormy cocktail Don Q saves the day.
Entey level of aged rum and like all Don Q rums; light and versatile. You could have it neat, with a little water or you could mix it. I like it with ginger ale or coke...neat, not so much.
Easy drinking. Nothing really noticeable. Would not mix it.
At first this rum doesn't smell of alcohol, the taste contains a certain amount of alcohol though it isn't overly strong, it is nice to drink but not outstanding
Quite a nice rum , a bit of a burn in the mouth but with honey and caramel tones. Dry but smooth , makes an excellent rum and coke , very enjoyable mixer.
