Recommendable to most
I’ve been sitting in this bottle since the week of Christmas and am just cracking it open in August. I should have sooner!
Nose of smoked oak, very light esters. More oak, brown sugar and toffee. Bit of spice comes through with a hint of apple. Extremely light body for a rum of this age. Finish is extremely smooth and almost cooling. Little fruit and nuts and more of the smokey oak tannins coming through.
My first tasting of a Don Q rum and surely not my last. Grab a bottle while you can. This is with a doubt one of my new favorites. This is a fantastic spirit for rum or bourbon lovers.
Last drink for tonight was a Don Q Signature Release Single Barrel 2007 edition. Hard to find bottle. Very light golden color. Woody notes to the nose. Very much whisky like to the throat. Not a typical flavorful aged rum in my books, but will be very good for a whisky lover.
Sehr smooth ohne zu süss zu sein.
Sehr würzige Holzaromen in der Nase.
Im Mund dann ebenfalls etwas Holz, viel Vanille und Kramell mit dezenter süsse auf der Zunge.
Mittellanger weicher Abgang mit anhaltend würzger Holznote.
Few months ago the global brand ambassador of don q did a tasting experience of 7 types of their rum in Maassluis the Netherlands. He held a very nice presentation. Showed lots of pictures of the distillery. This rum was in my opinion the most tastefull.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Propolis, kůže, čokoláda, med, skořice, hřebíček, kandovaný pomeranč. (87 b)
Chuť: Překvapivě suchý, ale poměrně plný a svým výrazem "temný". Silný, kořenitý dojem, hořká čokoláda, dubové taniny. Působí silněji, než na 40% alkoholu. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Vůně je pro mě zajímavější, než chuť.
I was so impressed with the after taste of Don Q 2005 that I picked up this 2007 today. It has more aroma than the 2005, namely fruit. On the palate are more flavors, namely fruit. The after taste is no match compared to that wonderful one from the 2005. Both are excellent rums worth checking out and both have no added sugar.
