Don Q cristal is a versatile everyday white rum that we enjoy after work and in happy hours. Served as cuba-libre or with fresh grapefruit, it starts the evening on the right foot!

This one is really good for mixing. Light floral flavors, no harsh alcohol burn, no overly sweet notes.

Surprising taste, I'm not the biggest fan of light runs but this one was very good. It mixed very well, especially when making more complicated drinks. If you're looking to find a quality light run for the price this is it cheif.

This is my go-to PR rum for punches, and especially coquito. It’s a better value Demerara than the others at this price point (Bacardí, Barrilito 2 star), no frills, no additives.

The best Light Spanish Rum...ever. Full stop. Light, dry, fruity, and sweet. Perfect.

Tried Don Q Cristal neat first and that's a no-go. It will mix well with your favorite soda or with a fancy umbrella drink. There are easily 20 better clear rums though.

Its $10 a bottle, and though an industrial column-still rum, isn't bad at all. Very light, slight floral whiffs that suggest flowers and detergent. Everything moves very hurriedly across the palate, leaving only nuances of flavor and a mild burn, which I actually enjoy.

This is a mixing rum for people that don't like the taste of alcohol. It is a good introductory for people to start building an appreciation for rum, albeit through weak mixed drinks like the mojito. Its crazy thinking back to when I was younger, when anything with a high alcohol content tasted simply like nail-polish remover. Significant training (and desire) needs to be present for someone to develop a palate for appreciating good rums, and I consider a rum like this to be a good gateway to that.

In my early days of exploring rum cocktails-which was, uh, not too long ago-this was the first budget rum that I came to appreciate. In a bind, it’s worked in simple rum highballs and on the cheap daiquiris. It’s been a bit since I’ve tried it, and I wanna visit, but flor de cana extra seco has become, and I think will continue to be, my go to white rum. What does that mean? Basically, I gotta smile when I see this as a bars well rum, but as long as I can buy something a little higher, I will.

It's honestly hard for me to be fair on this review as, I grew up drinking this stuff!!!!...this is THE rum people drink widely in the Island....Bacardi, is known locally as a rum for tourists...Serralles, however, is what we all grow up drinking....the QIUZZWER was my very first drink growing up and to this day goes great with any mixer. Mentiritas (little lie) as Cuba Libre's are known in PR are done up with Don Q....

Is it THE best ....NO.....but its a great drink to relax to!!!!

Love it!!!
