This was my intro to rum and liked it from the start. I really like it mixed with Pepsi and will go to it for other mixed drinks as well.
Neutral in flavor, so it won't stand out on your drink. Yes, a little alcohol burn. Well balanced (quality, consistency, price, etc.), light but don't be to confident, still 40% alcohol per volume and with all sugar content of some drinks, you could end with a nasty headache. All in all, best option for mixing.
Has been my well rum for a long, long time. Excellent call spirit for any number of "and" cocktails, hemmingways, and a very light mojito.
Column distilling doesn't murder the cane juice. Still get a little bit of burnt sugars through the heavy sugar cocktails.
Best rum in the Caribbean. It's taste mixes well with everything, especially for a "Cuba Libre". It's ten times better than your regular Bacardi. From Don Q Crystal to all it's flavors it is excellently made. I've been a rum drinker all my life and DonQ is by far my number 1 choice. Those who do not like it, don't know how to appreciate a good rum.
This rum is very well distilled, very clean, smooth and elegant. Mix well with everything, I prefer it with Coke and a wedge of lime. Cuba Libre!
I dont drink my whites straight, 99% of the time its a bad idea. Whites are meant to mix. Not like it was an intention, just when you age rum less then 2-3 years the smoothness isnt all there and most of the time its like drinking vanilla enriched fire. DonQ smells like isopropyl alcohol to a T so I wasn't about to drink this straight. But I did anyway for the love of all my readers and its harsh upfront with a calm mid and then a bite as it goes down. Strong alcohol taste with some vanilla and thats about it. Very basic rum but for the price (11$ here in michigan) it walks bacardi superior and C morgan white. Its good in diet coke. What I like about it is the naturalness. B superior and C morgan whites taste very manufactured and extract tasting. This sticks to a more natural flavor. Although its not an exceptionally good white it is a very good mixer. It has a potent flavor which stays by in mixed drinks and the sugar of some mixed drinks gets rid of its bitter aftertaste. There is better white rums but for the price hey you cant beat it. If you like natural vanilla with and little heat this one is for you, woodsy rum people (me) this one is a no-go.
"It is surprisingly “smooth” and quite easy to sip. The sweetness from the rum is very sugary rather than fruity. ."
