Don Q Gold rum is produced in Puerto Rico by the famed Serralles family. The ""Gold"" brand is aged between 1-5 years and then carbon filtered.
Don Q has over 140 years of history with the original distillery being founded in 1865. Its name is derived from the famous La Mancha character Don Quixote.
Un ron ideal para mezclar, un sabor impresionante para mezclar
Good quality for the cost. Very smooth and easy to drink straight or on ice.
sippable rum that is fairly cheap. Flavors are definitely oriented towards cigar smokers. Very similar flavor, actually, to Flor de Cana.
Very sweet flavor. Excellent for RUM and COKE. Cristal and Gold are the locals favorite.....
DonQ Gold and ginger ale is a cool refreshing drink. Plus it's cheap.
Don Q Oro is my favorite everyday rum. Its taste is refreshing and its aromas are balanced when served as Cuba Libre, with lime and coca cola. It is smooth and I csn drink it all night snd nevet get tired of it!
Nice gold mixer. I like the Cristal better to mix, but I use this when I want a little more flavor.
This is good for rum and coke; nothing overpowering here, but a good clean taste for little cost.
perfect for Cuba libre! When I visited Puerto Rico, I was told everyone needs to take the Bacardi tour, but Puerto Ricans drink Don Q! I can see why. I even prefer the Gold to the more expensive Anejo.
had it it's okay but not something I want very much
Very alcoholic taste but throat feeling is not too harsh. Gets better as you keep drinking it.
Very enjoyable oaky rum flavor.Velvety mouthfeel.Smell is like how it tastes.Smoothness is not great but that's how rum should be in my opinion.
I have always liked Bacardi in the past for mixing with cola. I feel Don Q is equal to and possibly a touch better though and can be had for a better price on occasion. It is not a good sipping rum just like the Bacardi, but both are a good standard for a rum with cola in my opinion. Good pricing for a respectable rum. I lean towards the Don Q brand over Bacardi.
Decent mixer good carmel flavor. Similar to bracarci gold
este ron es para personas sin ninguna nocion y que no pueden adquirir algo mejor
Is a comercial rum. Good only in a cocktail combination.
Sampled this rum during a tasting seminar at Cardiff Rum Festival.
Not much to say about this one. Pretty standard cocktail bar fare. Not a sipper by a long shot. How old even is it? Got to be 1 or there abouts.
I had a really bad week, and I was broke and drank all of the Kirk and Sweeney 12 year in my liquor cabinet. Hiding in the back I spotted a bottle of Don Q that a friend had brought over and I put my nose in the air and quickly shoved it in the back to never be seen again until today. Not a horrible rum, but not something I would purposely buy to consume myself unless my pockets were light. Mixed with coke I think it tastes better than Bacardi
Light straw colored, like white wine or cider. Light aroma, like an rubbing alcohol. Lightly sharp taste, a lot of alcohol. Use in a drink, maybe...?
Almost no smell. Taste is also very mild. Nothing bad, but not too many good things either.
This isn't a particularly bad rum but it's quite unremarkable, possibly better to mix it with something
Ok mixer but the cristal is a better option. Has a peculiar flavor and smell.
Definitely not a sipping rum, but unique in it's own way. I found an odd sweetness to it that I have not found elsewhere, except in Nephew and Wray overproof, which I hated. Somehow this rum pulls it off, but only as a mixer, or an "I gotta get drunk" shooter.
