Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is one of the few rums I've rated at 8 or below that I like better than the consensus score (currently 7.3 as of this review). In fact, I like this more than many $100+ rums I've reviewed.
Molasses, oak, honey, vanilla, bourbon, leather, tobacco, and cinnamon. A very nice smell, and a good taste. Only $45.99 at Bevmo! (2015 price), this is a good value. I recommend it!
Very cool packaging (sliding coffin) wife bought for me as a bday present. Sweet lady;) its an amazing smooth rum. I really enjoyed it straight. at $70 its a bit much but I'll always keep one in stock.
I’ve heard great things about Don Q White rum from my Puerto Rican friends but this one was a fantastic surprise.
Nice burn, smooth, not sweet, not tangy, not too much oak or bourbon flavor.
Excellent choice as a sipper. Can use some drops of cool water as well.
Some banana hints and can notice some fruity flavors like peach and apples.
One of my favorites.
This is a good rum that i was surprised tasted as good as it did.
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 the best rum ever, love it I do recommend it 100 percent
Huele a un armario de madera y sabe con notas vainilladas amaderadas y frutos secos.
Baja muy suave con un retrogusto muy agradable.
This is a very smooth sipping rum. I find the taste to be a bit flat in the finish.
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.
The title says it all - it is ok, but nothing to write home about.
Beautiful bottle, nice addition on my bar shelve. Smooth, a good sipping rum.
Still Don Q, it's slightly better than the blanco, but barely.
...guter Stoff, auch wenn Zucker beigesetzt ist, ich mag ihn.
Über das typische Solera-Verfahren produziert und einfach lecker.
Don-Q, The Puerto Rican rums that Bacardi should be, are inexpensive and delicious.
The Grand Q is higher in the line-up but worth the money.
If you want a good start get the super valued Don-Q ANEJO.
Drink it neat, more so for the Grand-Anejo.
Very smooth rum. Easy drinking, slight heat going down.
I gave it 6 stars because it does mix okay. However, at this price it should not need to be mixed to be good. Compared to similarly priced rums it has a bitter and harsh flavor. It was not so harsh that it could not be sipped, like many cheaper rums, but it was not an enjoyable sip either.
Good to add variety to an evening of rum tasting due to its unique taste. Sweet for sure but great for sipping.
There's some nice tastes of raisins, wood, a hint of vanilla and coconut, but you have to be patient. Try and drink it too soon and you'll get nothing but paint stripper. Patience is rewarded sweetly in this case.
Sort of a rum without qualities - it is drinkable, but cannot tell you much of its flavor besides the sweet wood.
My normal sipper is Bacardi 8 and this one seems on par with that to me. Will have to try a side-by-side to nail it down. Will be a fun test.
Dark, deep flavour with tones of wood, ash. Less honey taste than zacapa 23. Deeper, richer than diplomatico mantuano. The bottle is really cool, but is it worth the extra cost, compared to zacapa? Not sure, feels like a strong mature rum. I will need a few more sips to make the right judgement. Not bad, thats for sure.
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.
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.
I bought this rum on a whim based on the strong recommendation from the liquor store owner. I admit I was a little skeptical, but got it for a good price and thought it'd be fun to try a new rum.
I was actually very pleasantly surprised, and thought it was a very good, solid rum! I gave it a weighted score of 8.05, which I rounded down to 8 for rumratings.com. My scoring system (with weights) is as follows:
-Packaging (10%): 7
-Color (20%): 7
-Nose (20%): 8.5
-Palette (25%): 8
-Smoothness (25%): 9
It had a great flavor and was nice and smooth. I would have no problem at all buying this rum again, and would confidently serve it to guests.
