I had very high expectations for this rum, given both its reputation and its price. A little bit of a burn in the finish, and not too sweet. It was not bad, but at the same time not all that interesting.

Very good rum. No harshness and the burn is a bit subtle. The flavors aren't rich nor fragrant. Overpriced in my opinion.

Sort of a rum without qualities - it is drinkable, but cannot tell you much of its flavor besides the sweet wood.

6.5 on my scale, but bottles aren't half full or empty here. Lighter than I usually get, but a nice flavor and aftertaste. Not as fancy as some; but a solid mixer.

this rum is fine. it's just a little too much sweetness, a little too much harshness, a little short on spice and character, a little short on barrel. its tasty, but not great. if it were a $35 bottle... yessir. for $~60? there are a lot better choices.

If you’ve spent anytime in Puerto Rico you will soon learn that Don Q IS the rum that true Puerto Rican’s drink. Their gold / regular Anejo are much better the the famous Bicardi line which are also made in Puerto Rico.
With all that said I found the Gran Anejo not up to the price they want for it. For my money I’ll take the fine USA mainland rum Georgia’s own Richland rum much better.
Don Q is harsher and burns more on the backend.

Never judge a book by it's cover. That saying also goes the same for things that look beautiful. For sure this is one of the best LOOKING rums on the shelf at the store. The hollow stopper even has the old "flip and fill" thing that 1800 used to have. However, I was disappointed with what was inside. I was much more impressed by Cruzan Single Barrel and that bottle is SUPER LAME. This isn't a terrible rum, but at this level and from the presentation I

The presentation is what got me. It came in a beautiful cardboard box with the tick glass plug. I appreciated their cheaper mixing rum, especially the Cristal, one of the smoothest affordable white rums. This unfortunately did not deliver in the flavor department, it had a rough overtone to what I expected to be more complex and smooth rum.

This is a very smooth sipping rum. I find the taste to be a bit flat in the finish.

Don Q Gran Anejo is well packaged and looks very impressive.
Unfortunately, my good feelings for this rum prospect ended there.
It has a strong smell and creates a real burning sensation in the mouth.
It is drinkable with a mixer, however it just does not make the grade as a rum to be enjoyed on its own.
