Previously I only tried some spiced concoctions from Captain Morgan and such and they never made me any happier but I thought (inspired by Paul B) to give it one more go. But this time as dry as possible please and with some real rum in there, not some vanilla-sugared flavoured vodka.

So I found this one (a nice deal at €20) with for at least 3 years aged rum, real spices and at just 9 gpl. Oh, and an ABV of 45% so it seems serious enough.

The nose is rather sweet, with mostly vanilla, fudge and some cinnamon and a hint of oak. On the palate you notice the higher ABV, spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of cloves. The vanilla is a bit much for a young and rather light-bodied rum so I think some is added as well. There is a little smokiness from the also present oak. It ends with a mocha/dark chocolate and spiced caramel. A peppery touch stays also present for quite a bit. Despite the 45% it goes down easy enough but it is a bold rum for sure.

For a spiced rum it is truly nice but spiced rum? I don't see me sipping this all night (even at 9gpl just a tad too sweet) so it is a rum for one or two shots after a winter stroll instead of the glühwein/vin chaude or an old tawny porto I would normally take. Nice addition but at the €30 it normally goes for I'd rather spend them on anything from Foursquare or such. But by far the best spiced rum I tasted, that is certain.

Jednoznačně nejpříjemnější spice rum, koření jen zlehka, jemný, přírodně nasládlý

I had heard good things about Don Q Oak, but it disappointed unfortunately

Can’t complain. Good spiced rum. Love Puerto Rican rums and this is a classic

This rum surprised me. Reviews gave me an "ok" expectation, but the taste was much better.

Drinking this on the rocks is a bit heavy for me. Cant handle alcohol in its purest form. Mixing this gives me a great taste of smooth rum. No chemical reaction, just a fine rum with good taste and a good aftertaste.

Would buy this more often as a decent replacement for "drinkin rum"

Voor de prijs een lekkere rum, niet te speciaal, iets brandend in de afdronk

Of the rums I have tried this one may be the best. Smooth and flavorful with not to much spice or that nasty twisted face you make after a drink of some of the others. I would defiantly buy again and may try some f the other Don Q rums.

In a rum tasting with 3 spiced rums, this one ended at the Bottom. The nose and smell are verry good, however tastewise we prefered the Bayou spiced and Ron de Jeremy hardcore spiced over the Don Q spiced.
