It's good in rum punch where there is a lot of other flavors present.

This is a wired rum as it's labelled as a golden rum but it is really light in colour. Myself I like a really flavourful golden aged rum and this is more along the lines of a white rum than gold which is what makes its bizarre.

It's hard to understand exactly how the gold is so much worse than the cristal. This is not a good spirit but there are plenty worse, and may have a better rating than it deserves because of my reluctant ambivalence to the brand

At this price point, I think there are much better rums out there like Flor De Cana 4 year and Cruzan. Don Q gold has a harsh alcohol "bouquet" and a somewhat "chemical" flavor to me. It's drinkable but I'm not inclined to buy it again, even as a mixing rum.

Light straw colored, like white wine or cider. Light aroma, like an rubbing alcohol. Lightly sharp taste, a lot of alcohol. Use in a drink, maybe...?

This rum's colour is a faint yellow - not very "gold" at all. It smells like rubbing alcohol and has a harsh taste with a hint of sweetness... Doesn't look or taste like an aged rum, and when mixed with cola its drinkable, but really more comparable to a white rum.

Pretty smooth, not heavy on flavor, nice finish, no crazy after taste, great to mix.

I get shy and bright nose. Nothing special, it's not harsh but simple.
The taste starts watery but warm with vanilla from the bourbon white oak. It turns spicy, I get also some bitter notes and a light fruity taste. At the end is some bourbon oak and some chocolate notes.

Very simple and young rum. I would rate it with 46 points.

Nose: vanilla, white oak, some citrus a fruit like peach or apple (it's very shy)
Taste: vanilla, some peach, some spice, some bitter notes, bourbon wood, some chocolate
Finish: spice, vanilla

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruits: 1.5/5
Spice: 3/5
Mildness: 3/5
Complexity: 1/5

Kräftiger, intensiver Rum, welcher sich sehr gut zum Mischen eignet.

It’s a fine light gold rum. Perfect for a rum and coke
