Nondescript rum that's the best thing on the bottom shelf.

Will satisfy in a pinch and best on the rocks. Clean flavor for those who want non-flavored rum taste.

Clean, light, with a sweet finish. Great for mixing.

It's what the locals drink in PR. Or on a boat. GAI. (Get after it)

So far I have infused with pineapple and lime with good results.

This rum is very well distilled, very clean, smooth and elegant. Mix well with everything, I prefer it with Coke and a wedge of lime. Cuba Libre!

I dont drink my whites straight, 99% of the time its a bad idea. Whites are meant to mix. Not like it was an intention, just when you age rum less then 2-3 years the smoothness isnt all there and most of the time its like drinking vanilla enriched fire. DonQ smells like isopropyl alcohol to a T so I wasn't about to drink this straight. But I did anyway for the love of all my readers and its harsh upfront with a calm mid and then a bite as it goes down. Strong alcohol taste with some vanilla and thats about it. Very basic rum but for the price (11$ here in michigan) it walks bacardi superior and C morgan white. Its good in diet coke. What I like about it is the naturalness. B superior and C morgan whites taste very manufactured and extract tasting. This sticks to a more natural flavor. Although its not an exceptionally good white it is a very good mixer. It has a potent flavor which stays by in mixed drinks and the sugar of some mixed drinks gets rid of its bitter aftertaste. There is better white rums but for the price hey you cant beat it. If you like natural vanilla with and little heat this one is for you, woodsy rum people (me) this one is a no-go.

was told while visiting Puerto Rico to visit the Bacardi factory, but drink Don Q. They were right! Favorite crystal run for making mojitos.

Years ago my Puerto Rican in-laws introduced my to this Caribbean Gem. I can't even drink Bacardi or any other white rum anymore. Mix it with passion fruit juice for an incredible cocktail.
