Tasty, but not quite great
I am a recent explorer of the rum variety. I have drank Bacardi and Captain ever so often when i was younger. My cousin a while back introduced the Don a while back when he came back from Puerto Rico on a business trip.
I was taken by its smoothness and subtle rum flavor. When it was eventually widely available in my area i tend to turn to the Don when i am hosting or wanting mixed drinks. Not my favorite neat but bearable.
Took this in a glass ringed with salt and a lime, I think they thought it was a tequila. Didn't drink it with a lime and the salt didn't add anything to the experience. Drink wasn't anything special and had a harsh ending. Would buy again if found in a bar but wouldn't be my go to sipping solution.
Picked up a bottle after reading a few reviews at $29 for the bottle reasonable price for a white rum .i needed a good white rum to mix a few island drinks with this one fit the bill for sure no harshness love the nose of it
Neutral in flavor, so it won't stand out on your drink. Yes, a little alcohol burn. Well balanced (quality, consistency, price, etc.), light but don't be to confident, still 40% alcohol per volume and with all sugar content of some drinks, you could end with a nasty headache. All in all, best option for mixing.
Has been my well rum for a long, long time. Excellent call spirit for any number of "and" cocktails, hemmingways, and a very light mojito.
Column distilling doesn't murder the cane juice. Still get a little bit of burnt sugars through the heavy sugar cocktails.
Best rum in the Caribbean. It's taste mixes well with everything, especially for a "Cuba Libre". It's ten times better than your regular Bacardi. From Don Q Crystal to all it's flavors it is excellently made. I've been a rum drinker all my life and DonQ is by far my number 1 choice. Those who do not like it, don't know how to appreciate a good rum.
"It is surprisingly “smooth” and quite easy to sip. The sweetness from the rum is very sugary rather than fruity. ."
