Tasty, but not quite great
Amber colour in a clear bottle gives nothing away at first, but the Don Q emblem on the top eludes to a touch of quality. The aroma is slightly of honey, but depends the mystery even more giving nothing else away. The taste is extremely smooth. A brief glimpse of that honey that the aroma promiced is followed by a subtle but lingering okay/nutmeg flavour and a bit of spice on the edge of the tongue before finishing with a bit of warmth as it goes down. This is one to cherish and sip slowly.
Delší dobu jsem se odhodlával k ochutnání.
Výsledek je poměrně dobrý rum, ke každodení konzumaci.
Není to typicky stařený / aged rum jak by většina čekala.
Suší rum, výraznější chuť. Bez přidaného cukru.
I was hesitant to buy this one based on many reviews comparing it to bourbon.Yes, it is a dry rum with no added sugar, but it is nothing at all like a bourbon. With me hating Don Q Gran Anejo, this was another barrier to keep me from trying this one. So I told myself that it's only money and priced at $36 US, so I brought this puppy home.
The aroma is uncharred oak. The taste is pure rum with very little flavor because it is dry. The after taste is where it shines. My goodness! It is uncharred oak combined with flavors of pure rum with no after burn. That after taste just lingers. This is the third rum that I tried today and lucky me, all three started out as an 8! (I don't count Don Q Gold that I rated early this morning as a 4 because the price difference is huge...I hate the term price point because it sounds like toast points).
Initially, a nice flavor. Not a strong oak or molasses flavor. Went from a 5.5 to 6.5 on my scale when I finally caught the molasses.
"It’s quite a spicy and heated rum but one which quickly calms down into a medium length finish which as a wonderful lightness to it. In the finish you still get the oak but also a kind of crème caramel note."
