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.
Easily consumable in a bind
Don Q Gold is decent when mixed with Coke, but as a neat sipper rum, not so much. Harsh alcohol smell, very weak bland color and nasty taste if you try it neat.
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
sippable rum that is fairly cheap. Flavors are definitely oriented towards cigar smokers. Very similar flavor, actually, to Flor de Cana.

"You get sweetness but a fair hit of more metallic bitter notes. It has a pretty muted, yet smooth mouthfeel and a very short finish."
