This is one of (3) rums I recommend to all rum drinker types and to introduce a novie to "the better stuff". At $16 it is the best rum I can find under $20. Decent to sip, good on the rocks and makes an excellent Cuba Libre.
Helles honiggelb im Glas
In der Nase ein kleiner Strauss mit frischgepflückten Blumen und frischen tropischen Früchten umgeben von einem hauch Vanille.
Im Gaumen sehr mild und ? Wer hat meinem Rum die Aromen gekaut !? Ah, doch da sind Spuren von Vanille und Früchte. Das Ganze wirkt etwas wässerig und verdünnt aber dennoch harmonisch und lecker.
Im Abgang erstaunlich lang ein wenig nach frisch gepresstem Zuckerrohr.
Ein junger Aromatischer Rum für Einsteiger oder zum Mixen.
Bright honey yellow in the glass
In the nose a small bouquet of freshly picked flowers and fresh tropical fruits surrounded by a hint of vanilla.
Very mild on the palate and? Who chewed the aromas of my rum? Ah, but there are traces of vanilla and fruits. The whole thing looks a bit watery and diluted but still harmonious and delicious.
In the finish surprisingly long a little after freshly pressed sugar cane.
A young aromatic rum for beginners or for mixing.
This is one of the most discreet rums I have tried. Not much to say about this. Taste is quite anonymous. It doesn't brag. Not much taste. However it does have quite a long and powerful aftertaste. All in all very boring but not bad.
Don Q Gran Anejo (DQGA) is one of my top rums ever. Don Q Anejo (son of DQGA) has a similar “Anejo” taste but is clearly less “anejo”, that is, aged. When I am in the mood for Don Q and I am out of DQGA (especially since I am on a budget) i will turn to this excellent stand-in.
But it doesn't strand out and there is better options out there.
Vanilj i doften. Och även i smaken. Lite fat smak. Kryddig. Ok.
Ron inexpresivo. No dice nada ni en aroma ni sabor. En su rango hay otros mucho mejores.
Tasted at Laka Lono 4/24/22
Ok. This started out as a 4/5 barrel rating and moved down to 3/5 which I am translating to 5/10.
Ok. I liked this. It tasted like mellow cactus juice with a long lasting flavor. But then each sip got progressively worse, in a worrisome kind of way.
It is, throughout, the correct rum. It's hard to pick on anything. Nice mellow aroma, likewise the taste. You can feel the better rum, but it definitely lacks character. Terribly dull.
I decided to try this very carefully and systematically. I really tried to taste deeply into it and find things it reminds me of. I taste something that reminds me of browning meat, maybe specifically pork. It's very early and especially when I take some air as i sip. Not in any way unpleasant but distinctive for sure. It has a little sour caramel thing too. Like a green caramel apple. It actually gives me a little tingle in my cheeks the way sour things might. The green apple is very nice though. After that I get a nice subtle molasses flavor and it has a very long mildly woody finish with a very nice tingle on the back of my lips. I am surprised at how much is going on here. I'm now very curious to try other Don Q offerings.
The nose is more oaked than the gold.
"You get a sweet fruity entry which gives way to some very nice oak aged notes. The finish is long and spicy but it doesn’t burn at all. ."

Good but oaky 8 out of 10
Smoth flavor good for sipping just a bit too strong on the oak flavor.
