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
sippable rum that is fairly cheap. Flavors are definitely oriented towards cigar smokers. Very similar flavor, actually, to Flor de Cana.
Bought this to mix. Trying on the rocks to rate. Very sweet and boozy. No real nice aging characteristics at all, straight up liquor. Must mix this, not good by itself.
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!
The other reviews kept me away from this one up until now because they are right. It is pale in color and almost could pass for a white rum. As others have said, the after taste is quite unpleasant and bitter. I compared this side by side against Cruzan Gold, which is my top recommended rum among those for less than $20. No contest. Even at only $9 per bottle, I won't be buying this one again.
And later that evening: this shit is horrible, so I dock it one point. It's clear brother called Don Q Cristal is much better, as others have said. As bad as this one is, it is still better than anything by Bacardi or Captain Morgan.
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.
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.

"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."
