Recommendable to most
This rum is an average rum and there are many better rums for the price. It has a rather harsh finish. Would not rush out to buy this again.
Bought a bottle of Don Q Gran Anejo earlier this year when vacationing in Puerto Rico. Bottle sits in a very nice cradle and the bottle itself is very presentable. Unfortunately the contents are very disappointing. Strong smell, even stronger burn and no quality on this rum at all.
The DonQ Gran Anejo isn't a rum to choose for sipping. It might be good when mixed into sweeter drinks to give them a bit of a punch. The flavour has a slight fruitiness but it is very sharp and with a rough mouthfeel, and the colour is a very light straw.
This drink needs both better distilling, more filtering and more time on the barrel!
The only really interesting thing about this rum is the built in measure in the cork that lets you pour up 2cl at a time. However it is unclear how to work it exacly so makes it very easy to spill the rum.
Wow! Why did I not decide for the other one in the store. Very flat flavor, no vanilla, marginal or no sugar added. However a strong smell - very similar to that of my childrens glue - remains on top of all.
sorry, but half of the money you pay is obviously for the nice bottle.
Sure presentation is nice, great bottle and the like, I opened this bottle and there was very little in the way of nose which surprised me.
Drinking it was miserable, It had a slight flavour but it was very washed out and there is no after taste! After 3 seconds my mouth was back to where I begun.
I can't recommend this at all, I would take a Captain Morgan over this any day, and that's not to say I haven't tried a few rums in my time.
A sweet almost perfumed like aroma is followed by some oak, a little spice and a lovely waft of light vanilla.
"The initial sip gives a sweet yet slightly peppery entry. Running alongside these flavours is a subtly creamy vanilla note which runs right through the rum. The finish is long and peppery."
