Tasty, but not quite great
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.
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.
To be honest I went through a few tasters in my Rum cent calendar recently, and I can't quite remember the details of this one. But it must have been pleasurable with a mixer (coke)
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
Didn't think much of this rum until I read the review of it on TheFatRumPirate his website and decided to order a bottle. Am happy that I did as its a nicely balanced, light single cask rum which is very much Bajan style despite being from Puerto Rico.
Normally I prefer a bit heavier rums, but as an every day sipper this does a good job. Don Q, keep it up!
"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."
