Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I love this rum. It shows what real aged rum is, but doesn't go too far by adding a whole bunch of flavors, molasses and sugar to make a point. It mixes incredibly well and is decent to sip. The price point is beyond fair and the palate showcases a clear caramel butter scotch profile.
If you want a better rum for this for the money you're out of luck. You may be able to find a 'smoother' or more 'complex' rum, but I would bet you that the rum you're talking about has been watered down with a whole a bunch of stuff that shouldn't be found in rum. Also, I'd doubt it was aged nearly as long as this one and it'd probably be distilled to much higher proof to allow for greater profitability when ageing. shipping, etc.
If you live in the U.S., you'll also notice that some of the top bars in the country have picked up on how good of cocktails this rum can make. However, the best thing to do is get a bottle and some decent recipes to try out for yourself!
This is one of (3) rums I recommend to all rum drinker types and to introduce a novie to "the better stuff". At $16 it is the best rum I can find under $20. Decent to sip, good on the rocks and makes an excellent Cuba Libre.
No ilusiona mucho la botella, pero el color y olor agradan, ya al probarlo deleita!
Un rico sabor, suave y relajante, y a muy buen precio!
It's s great supper or for mix smooth amber rum that leaves a good taste in your mouth
Don Q Gran Anejo (DQGA) is one of my top rums ever. Don Q Anejo (son of DQGA) has a similar “Anejo” taste but is clearly less “anejo”, that is, aged. When I am in the mood for Don Q and I am out of DQGA (especially since I am on a budget) i will turn to this excellent stand-in.
Nearly as good as the older Gran Añejo version. The beauty in DonQ rum for me is not necessarily in the flavors that come from the barrel aging, though subtle and delicious, but in the column distilled spirit flavor itself which is noticeably a light and fruity tasting alcohol. Unadulterated and I believe on its way towards the top of many the rum drinkers' lists. Update: man that is good! A little water, time, and small sips... theres a little butteriness that reminds me of Santa Teresa 1796. This rum continues to surprise me and I've been drinking it for years. The more rums I taste the more I appreciate this when I return to it. 8 only bc it has a thinner body to it and i prefer more viscosity.
Smoth flavor good for sipping just a bit too strong on the oak flavor.
not as codtly as the Din Q gran añejo, this 10 year añejo is a best buy. It is smooth, refreshing and served with fresh grapefruit juice makes you want to repeat snd repeat all night long in the tropical setting
Výborný rum z Portorika, suchý, bez cukru, výrobca na fľaši priznáva dofarbovanie karamelom, čo je ok. Zmes až 8 ročných rumov, vo vôni spočiatku alkohol, neskôr veľmi jemná chuť.
lot of similarities to the old Cockspur 12, but not many to Mount Gay XO. Dry, cinnamon spicy, with a touch of wood.
Relatively smooth in small sips. Pleasant after-taste.
Lehký a příjemný rum, není ostrý ale zahřeje. Řekl bych podobný na Matusalem 10, ale jemnější.
Very nice molasses and oak flavor. Excellent value, good on the rocks or mixed with coke. My go to rum
Nase holzig mit fruchtigen Noten
Am Gaumen Süss
Leider sehr schneller abgang
By labelling this a cocktail rum people think I am doing it an injustice. It's actually a lovely oak barreled flavour profile but the issue is its a very sweet so would be interested in the hydrometer testing on it ....
20ml uit een advent kalender. Te weinig om een goed oordeel te vellen. Caramel, houtig, tabak. Geen suiker toegevoegd.
Sous son look de rhum à cocktails (top en daiquiri) se cache un vrai et honnête rhum de dégustation. À laisser aérér un bon quart d'heure pour profiter au mieux de l'expérience.
Plus abordable que le Havana 7 ans par exemple dans le même style.
La bouteille est relookee et affiche la nature du blend (3-8 ans à l'arrière).
Not very original but a bit of warmness that is really enoyable.
Don Q makes a wide array of rums in the Spanish style, which are always going to be on the thinner, lighter side. It's a solid choice for any cocktail recipe calling for a Puerto Rican gold rum. It's an outstanding mixer.
I liked the taste and smell. Nice drink for a good price.
This was an okay experience, liked the smell and taste, but not as good as others I have tasted.
It has a pretty good taste. Although it is a bit "strong". Good price for what you get
Léger, facile d'approche, sur les épices. Bon rapport qualité-prix
