Recommendable to most
I was unaware the high regard this Rum garners, my first encounter.
Medium amber, slightly floral nose. Mild honey, vanilla. Smooth finish
I had great expectation from this fine presentation, but found ordinary rum in the bottle. Nothing bad nothing great.
Wonderful golden amber color. Campfire sap, and coco on the nose. A little malty. Sea salt, brown butter, and vanilla on the pallet.
This rum leaves a strong impression. First sip near you can feel the burn and oak sharply, with a tingle on the tongue. Then it fades to the notes of caramel and brown sugar with a finish of spice. A little rest opens this rum considerably, but it’s a solid contender for sipping and mixed drinks alike.
Great sipping rum. Not too sweet. Super smooth. Just enough burn and a slight sweetness on the finish to make it memorable. Madly recommend. Yummmm!
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.
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.
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."
