Light sweet nose. Light and fruity taste, slightly leathery with almonds. Very short finish with almost no spice - which makes it quite unique. Leaves a dry aftertaste which isn’t my favorite but I can see some liking a lot. My wife calls it easy to drink, I see why - comparable to rums aged 10-12 yrs.
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.
I find a lot of Don Q mediocre, but this is a gem if you can find it. Not super complex but light, sweet, not too simple... Hard to find (at least for me) but reasonably priced and worth grabbing one if you see it.
Farven er fin mørk.
Duften er markant.
Smagen med en god fylde og sødme.
Eftersmagen hænger fint kraftigt.
Smagning Andrup Vin.
Solid backbone of the rum, but the sherry is very pronounced in this, about as much as the vermouth cask. It definitely makes it lean sweeter, but the complexity and oxidation is there to balance it out.
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, starting honey sweet, continues with fruits and wood, turns to sweet chilli, but without sugar, the aftertaste contains citrus fruits with pronounced grapefruit, wood, and a hint of sweet cherry jam, quite long. Not bad for some 5-8y of age. Don Q did it again - well crafted, honest rum. For lower price it would get even higher score from me.
"The finish is a good length- nice fade of the sweet notes which rubs alongside the wonderful spicy notes from the oak ageing. It’s long lasting and leaves a really nice flavour in the mouth."
