sippable rum that is fairly cheap. Flavors are definitely oriented towards cigar smokers. Very similar flavor, actually, to Flor de Cana.

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.

Better than Bacardi Gold. This is a rum and coke rum.

Pineapple and pepper nose with a caramel/pepper finish.

This is good for rum and coke; nothing overpowering here, but a good clean taste for little cost.

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.

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.

Very sweet flavor. Excellent for RUM and COKE. Cristal and Gold are the locals favorite.....

This rum I tried neat. This rum has a nose of straight alcohol. It is a bit harsh going down and in the mouth. This is a solid 5 rating nothing to write home about. But it is cheap that is its once saving grace. I have seen many age statements about this one its hard to pinpoint. I have seen up to four years, 1-4, 1-5, 3-5, I would say that up to four is the right thing mostly 1.
