Ce rhum est très bon, il un gout de caramel, de miel et vanille et quand même complexe. Le prix, la boite et la bouteille ne représente pas le rhum dedans. Il ne faut pas se fier a l'emballage.
This isn't a bad rum but it's far from great. The bottle may be it's most distinctive feature. Notice there isn't a single review focusing on taste and aroma? That's because this disappointing rum has no distinctive flavor. I can't identify a characteristic. It's reasonably smooth but yet has an after burn that you'll notice at first. This isn't bad. It's just not great. I can think of 10 rums I'd rather drink but at least 10 that are far worse.
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.
Enjoyable rum. I taste vanilla rum aged in oak. The only way I can describe the bite at the end is to imagine a very aged rum blended with a very young rum. For some reason it works. I like.
To be honest I must admit, in the first place it was the affection for the bottle that motivated me to buy it. Maybe the thing about this particular rum is that from the first look it emerges way too many excpectations concernng the content itself. Once poured in the glass and sipped though, it fails to fulfill those excpectations to a certain grade. Not being too much on the sweet side, is maybe the best thing about DonQ Grand Anejo. Other than that, I struggled to percieve some complexity in its' flavour with little succes. No strong kick on the nose once poured in the glass but on the other hand, quite harsh and disappointigly, flavour didn't realy seem to last much in the passing of time.
Overall, in my humble oppinion, at the range of 45 - 50 euro, a lot more decent choices are available.
Very smooth, lots of vanilla flavours in a fantastic bottle..
Slightly too expensive to my mind, but the fancy bottle won't come cheap.
Best I've had some far. Very smooth on rocks. Great oak finish. Love this
Very nice wooden box.
Pleasant on the nose. Little burn on palate. Smooth and pretty complex aroma. Touch of sweet plus oak at the same time. And a lot of fruits in between.
Not so long, but neat aftertaste with still little burn.
Good balance between sweet and dry rums. A bit too expensive: 70 CAD in Quebec.
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.
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.
