The nose is strong, with oak, grapefruit and other citrus fruits, pineaple, notes of cocoa, and a hint of nail polish, I really love it. The taste starts with mildly sweet citrus fruits, pineaple, honey, ends with white oak, the aftertaste is oak, with lasting spicy grapefruit and other citruses, with a slightly bitter twist at the end and a little pleasant afterburn. Overall the rum is nicely crafted, with a fresh feel, giving me much more pleasure than other - allegedly older - competitors. And please - do not try to compare this with Bacardi, this one is a completely different story.

Great Aroma, Fine smooth taste that just goes down too easy. Great neat but as a mixer, sometimes I think it gets lost amongst the other added ingredients in my Favorite rum based cocktails. This is my go to and I have a hard time keeping this in my private stock as it only lasts 4 days sometimes!

There is a slightly heavier body to this than the Don Q Añejo and that make sense because the youngest rum in the blend is 7 yrs old vs the former being 3. It has mild bittersweet flavors that are a hint of butter, brown sugar, and cognac. Very good.

I picked this up from Total Wine for $27.99 down in Delaware. I love the new bottle designs that Don Q is rolling out. This a a solid rum for the newcomer just getting into aged rums. Good amber color, great taste and decent finish. This should be a good everyday rum to have in your collection.

One dimensional on the nose. Some heat on the taste. Taste is ok on its own. I really like this one as a sour.

Take this with a grain of salt, as I am very new to drinking rum neat. I'm not a huge fan of the taste of the barrel first and rum second, and this hit it home for me. I did find it hits all the marks of a Spanish style rum.

I know that in my last discussion I stated that there would be no more reviews on rums that I have not tried. However, I have known about this replacement for Don Q Anejo for months and finally saw it on the shelf for $21. I just had to bring it home and do a side by side test.

The new bottle is shorter and wider and also comes with a cork instead of a screw cap. This new one comes from a blend of rums aged 7 years each. The Anejo was from a blend of rums ranging in ages of 3 to 8 years. This new one has no aroma, unlike the Anejo. Both taste almost the same, but this new one has a slightly more bitter after taste.

I had been used to paying $15 for the Anejo, so this $6 price increase is simply not worth it to me. I will just go over to the clearance center nearby and scoop up as many of the Anejos for $10 each before they are all gone.

Ich fand ihn eigentlich angenehm mild, der Abgang doch zu scharf und zu lang.

Just what you'd expect for a Puerto Rican at this price point. Better than Bacardi, okay to drink straight in a bind, but probably best relegated to mixing. When your Spievak zombie asks for Puerto Rican rum, this is a good value choice.
