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!
Picked up this Gem at the airport in San Juan after a free sample me and my co worker decided it would be a nice addition to compliment the Ron Cana de Guayaba (moonshine) we had just checked (that gallon was gone on day 2 of being on the main land).
This stuff is good
In der Nase etwas Spritig, lässt aber sofort nach!
Im Mund ein wahrer Genuss!
Nicht schlecht , mag ich!!
Pripomina mi dos maderas luxus. Suchy rum, vyvazeny, neskriabe, jemny, korenisty, alkohol vobec nepreraza. 8.7/10
What a great smooth sophisticated rum that is great with a little ice. Full, flavorful that doesn't kick you in the mouth. Very refined and elegant.
C'est un assemblage de rhums vieillis entre 9 et 12 ans d'une part et de rhum provenant d'une solera 50 ans (!!) d'autre part.
Aucun rajout comme d'habitude chez Don Q, le résultat est bluffant. Le Rhum est parfaitement équilibré, de la mélasse et du fruit pour une belle longueur en bouche. À servir 15 minutes avant dégustation pour la meilleure expérience.
Un Rhum haut de gamme pour un tarif très abordable.
Not bad. Good sipper. Might have put too much water in it.
A nice smooth rum with complexity, flavor no harsh burn or funky flavors. Gran anejo is on the sweet side of the podium, but in a good way with no added sugar or flavors, just what it draws out of the aging process. Cinnamon, vanilla, oak, leather and some fruitiness from the sherry barrels. Great rum enjoyed neat! This and the vintage single barrel 2005 are Don Q' finest offerings thus far.
This is another example of a wonderfully delicious rum whose sweetness does not derive from added sugar (only 2 gr/L or additives. This rum sells for $70 CAD in my area and, as far as I'm concerned, it is well worth it.
Don Q rums are generally good price performers. the problem with the gran anejo is that for a top of the line rum are others that are just as good at better prices. Having said that, I would not turn down a glass. The gran anejo flavor and smoothness is always a true rum drinker's delight.
Quite good choice, after glass fill wait a while when strong spirit note gone with the wind. Then taste better.
One of our great aged rums. I enjoy it on the rocks or neat straight out from the freezer. It has aromas of vainilla and oak.
I found it to be smooth throughout with a great finish but a bit 'thin' at first for what I expected. This coming from someone who enjoys the sweeter side of life and blended sugar bottles!
Para que no te lo pierdas este ron directo a la colección aunque le falta un poco de tiempo para estar en las ligas va por buen camino
Este ron tiene un sabor diferente, se parece un poco al zacapa, sin embargo para mi gusto está mejor. No es un ron dulce y lo siento un poco seco. Si lo volvería a comprar
Un produit plutôt bien fait.
Des notes de café, cuir, cigare sont bien présente dès le départ.
On sent ensuite le boisé du vieillissement en barils de chêne.
Melasse et vanille s'invitent en bouche au final.
Un produit honnête. Sans plus.
Tout de même intéressant et un bon rapport qualité prix (40$ USD )
As the title says light and delicate. I appreciate its not packed with sugar and additives but it's just not very complex when compared to the Real McCoy rums for example. Nice molasses on the nose and a follow up of vanilla in the mouth. For those wanting to begin sipping neat or with one ice cube this is a good rum to start with.
This has some heat to it for a Gran Añejo rum, but when you get passed it, the flavors are really good and it finishes smoother than expected. There's simple mild caramel/oak flavor that's really delicious. There's no added sugar to this rum so it's not as smooth as some sweeter rums, however it's got a great natural/classic taste. Recommend to purists not sugarbomb lovers. Cheers!
Given the cost, I expected much more. Bland on the nose. Not really a note of anything besides the alcohol.
Very nice presentation but taste lacks all the sugars and sweetness some others possess. This is silky smooth sipper with a nice nuttiness/woody flavor. Quite enjoyable.
Very nice!! Smooth and perfect on the rocks. Highly recommend trying.
Has quite a bite to it. The scotch of rums.
Enjoy this rum with 4 or 5 ice cubes and a nice cigar
Un rom corect fără aromă de zahăr. Păcat că nu are un aftertaste mai puternic. Recomand On the rocks.
Well folks, mixed with Diet Dr. Pepper or Diet Coke, it is pretty much the same tasting as Zacapa (everyone's favorite). It is of course, pricy to mix, but hey, that is how I like my rum. The bottle is cool, but not nice enough to keep as a decanter afterwards. Also, be careful, the rum drips around the rim when pouring it, so have a wet paper towel handy. This all sounds bad, but trust me. This is really tasty stuff and to me, it is a Zacapa taste alike, or close enough. Cheers,
