Butterscotch and pineapple nose with a pineapple-chocolate finish.

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.

Bought the Don Q Cristal to have a light rum on my shelf and was the highest rated one on here that I can get in Pennsylvania. Not something I'd sip but wasn't bad with cola. Probably just use it for Long Island Iced Teas. $11.99 in PA.

Great for mixing. My favorite a Mojito with fresh mint smashed in glass add ice and rum . There you have it the beginning of a end to a long day.

This is a great mixing rum. Not too strong, not weak either. Complements mixed drinks quite nicely.

A great choice for lighter drinks when a mild rum is in order. Smoother and cleaner flavor than other better known brands and lower priced. Sampled this in a 50 ml mini bottle. It will be my new standard for light PR rum when I exhaust my current supply.

I like this rum because of value as a mixer but at the same price point I prefer Cruzan.
