I like this one. Maybe a little to dry for my taste but overall a nice (not too) sweet tasting rum. The rum has a beautiful color.

Not a bad rum but is to light for me. Medium flavor and short aftertaste.

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.
Není sladký.

I bought it for my collection, tried before, not a big fan, but my OCD makes me buy stuff for my collection I don’t really need though, like the 2007 I just bought

I had first tried the 2007 vintage and got a hold of this one later, it's much different overall. This is lighter in color and tastes a bit younger IMO but that may not be the case. It's not ur typical light sweet alcohol background that you would expect from Don Q, there is a bit more bite and the finish is like a Bajan rum with a banana/coconut tropical fruit like flavor. It reminds me of Doorly's 8 year. The 2007 in comparison is more like a Spanish style rum with prominent oak tannins in the way of Pampero Anniversario RE or even Ron Del Barrilito. This is good natural rum. Update: still good and fruity woth some apple like flavor, there is some kind of funk i don't love tho.

Not my usual full flavoured taste but a nice little drop nonetheless, light golden in appearance and a smooth finish but then disappointingly seems to leave as soon as it gets going. A nice 'session' rum though if there is such a thing?

i really enjoyed it, Puerto rico= Bacardi to me and i don't consider it as a rum except the most expensive aged ones. But this one- yummy

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).
