Good stuff here. I love sherried whisky and rum. This has a nice single malt scotch feel but it is all rum. Good rum too. Thick and balanced. If the finish were longer it would score an 8. Nice sipper. Quality offering.

Dette var den 3 rom vi fik på en dejlig aften.
Denne rom har først ligget på alm. bourbon fade er derefter hældt over på sherry fade.
Der tydelige noter af noget blødt og måske lidt karamel.

I would not consider this to be as good as Dos Maderas or Abuelo - both of whom seem to have refined the art of making rum from sherry casks. It's rich and full, as you'd expect and there is a fair bit of fruit and leather in it. The sherry is there on the aftertaste but not really much in the smell or taste.

The overall feel is not far from Bajan style (think Doorly's). Lovely, welcoming nose with citrus fruits, elderberry flowers, vanilla, white oak, the taste is spicy but smooth, woody, turning to sweet chilli, but without sugar, the aftertaste is spicy, complex (sherry cask shows itself) and pleasant. It is surprisingly woody for some 8 years of age, but also priced 30% higher that e.g. 8y Doorly's. Don Q did it again - well crafted, honest rum.

Great sweet flavors. Mellow and easy to drink. Fruit flavors with a hint of spice. A good way to mix it up.

Sherry and caramel on the nose, smooth taste, almost liqueur, sherry and red wine on the finish

Aroma: Trochu lihovější vanilka, vcelku nevýrazná vůně
Chuť: Sladce kořenitá
Dozvuk: Trpké dřevo, rozinky a hodně sherry, středně dlouhý
Sladkost: 1/3
Vzorek #11 na RumFest Praha 2020
Sympatický rum. Vůně nic moc, ale vynahrazuje to chuť a výrazný sherry dozvuk. Lehký nadprůměr 7,5b.

The Don Q Double Aged Rum Sherry Cask Finish from Puerto Rico is a molasses blend that was allowed to be stored in bourbon barrels for 8 years and than got its finish in Oloroso sherry barrels. The Don Q enjoys a good reputation because the rum is produced sustainably and fairly and a high quality standard applies. The rum was bottled with 41% after about 10 years. The information on the bottle makes the rum transparent and give a lot of information.

The Don Q is not strong in the nose. There are light fruit notes, some sweetness and caramel. Light wood notes and very subtle spice sway along. On the palate, the rum offers a very precise picture with light fruit, raisins, vanilla and oak. The sherry notes give a natural sweetness but are not intrusive. The finish is medium-long with classic spicy barrel notes and also some sharpness.

The Don Q is a solid rum that does a lot right. There's a bit of a kick missing and he's a bit to nice. But i liked it a lot. For me it was the Nummer 2 at the Wagemut Tasting. A straight Rum. Will definitely try the Single Barrel 2009 in Cask Strength. It is very attractive for approx. 45Euro.

Der Don Q Double Aged Rum Sherry Cask Finish aus Puerto Rico ist ein Melasse Blend welcher erst 8 Jahre in Bourbon Fässern lagern durfte, um dann sein Finish in Oloroso Sherry Fässern zu bekommen. Der Don Q genießt einen guten Ruf da der Rum nachhaltig und fair produziert wird und ein hoher Qualitätsstandard gilt. Der Rum wurde nach ca. 10 Jahren mit 41% abgefüllt. Die Informationen auf der Flasche machen den Rum transparent und geben viele Informationen.

Der Don Q ist in der Nase nicht kräftig. Es kommen leichte Fruchtnoten, etwas Süße und Karamel. Leichte Holznoten und ganz dezente Würze schwingen mit. Am Gaumen bietet der Rum ein sehr präzises Bild mit leichter Frucht, Rosinen, Vanille und Eiche. Die Sherry Noten geben eine natürliche Süße sind aber nicht aufdringlich. Der Abgang ist mittellang mit klassischen würzigen Fassnoten und auch etwas Schärfe.

Der Don Q ist ein solider Rum welcher vieles richtig macht. Es fehlt etwas der Kick und er ist etwas zu brav. Aber er macht mindestens genau so viel richtig und schmeckt mir sehr gut. War bei dem Wagemut Tasting für mich auf Platz 2. Werde auf jeden Fall den Single Barrel 2009 in Cask Strength probieren. Ist für ca. 45Euro sehr attraktiv.

It’s pretty classic Don Q Gold with a little more to offer. Notes of Apricot, almond, and toffee. An easy sipper.
