Don Q Gran Anejo is a smooth rum without any added sugars/flavors. Higher in price than some others that in my option are a better value...Kirk and Sweeney comes to mind.

Notice the title of this review doesn't say this is just the best rum, but rather the best rum for anyone who truly enjoys fine spirits. This is because Don Q Gran Anejo is NOT ridden with tremendous amounts of sugar and additives added after distillation. This seems to be what most rum heads regard as 'smoothness' and 'complexity'. Why don't you guys buy some cheap 151, raw molasses, vermouth, spices and make your own pre-batched cocktail because that's what you're really drinking (and this includes Zacapa, Zaya and even Diplomatico).

The DQ GA drinks likes a dream and shows what a real unadulterated and extremely fine aged rum should taste like. I love the nuttiness from the sherry barrels and the full dark caramel mouth feel that resembles a fine cognac. If you want a one of kind cocktail make an Old Fashioned or Manhattan out of it and enjoy the fact it's not too sweet to do so right out of the bottle.

BTW, to Luis the reviewer below, I really have no idea what you're talking about comparing this or anything of Don Q's disfavorably to Bacardi. Luckily, you're a very small minority. The only thing Bacardi has done for the industry is make people stop drinking rum after they're out of high school. Oh I guess, those poor Cubans (fyi, they really left Cuba to keep exporting to the U.S. when Fidel took power) can also be credited with pumping a whole lot of waste water into the Caribbean and confusing consumers about what really is Puerto Rican rum. And, nothing of Bacardi's even the 'Facundo' B.S. comes even close to this Gran Anejo. I hope you got paid for your ignorant review or will someday. Otherwise, I really have no idea what's wrong with you.

Having this New Years Day 2015. Reminds me of Zacapa 23 but a little smoother.

This is one of the few rums I've rated at 8 or below that I like better than the consensus score (currently 7.3 as of this review). In fact, I like this more than many $100+ rums I've reviewed.

Molasses, oak, honey, vanilla, bourbon, leather, tobacco, and cinnamon. A very nice smell, and a good taste. Only $45.99 at Bevmo! (2015 price), this is a good value. I recommend it!

A fabulous premium rum if you have the scratch. It comes in a wonderful box that looks like a silk coffin. I love sipping it on special ocassions. The best I've had from Don Q.

I like this rum. It needs an ice cube or two to go down smoothly. Not sure is buy it again until I try a few more "high"ish end rums. It has some bite, but you get that when you sniff the cork as well. But it sips nicely next to a fire on a chilly night, so crack open a bottle and enjoy it with friends.

This is one of the few rums that I can drink on the rocks. It is amazing how smooth - but tasteful - this rum is. I have it over Bacardi's "Reserva Selecta."

I got for $30 and at that price I don't think it could be beat. Alot of good vanilla and carmel with a good bit of barrel spice. Smooth and complex at the same time

This gran añejo is Don Q tip of the line and I enjoy it for special ocassions. Very smooth, light with subtle vanilla, oak and caramel, I enjoy it on the rocks. There is something about Don Q Gran Añejo and Puerto Rico evenings that is magical

This expression of Don Q is superb. Smooth, light with subtle vainilla, caramel and oak. You could understand and appreciate what aging do to rums when comparing it from the Añejo. For me, it's a benchmark.

Very clean aged rum, without lots of extra sugar. Hints of molasses, bourbon, and cinnamon heat make this a great rum to experience neat.
