Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
But it doesn't strand out and there is better options out there.
Lehký a příjemný rum, není ostrý ale zahřeje. Řekl bych podobný na Matusalem 10, ale jemnější.
Pretty tasty, a bit clean maybe, slightly sharp, but not too much. Nice scent in the nose, but i miss some more body.
Let i duften. Mild, sød og ung smag af vanilje og egetræ.
Vanilj i doften. Och även i smaken. Lite fat smak. Kryddig. Ok.
Don Q Anejo is dry as desert, very close to a mediocre cognac. Plantation his has very little to do with proper aged dark rums. Color is weak, alcohol smell is nasty and the taste test is not that good at all.
Its a pretty clean rum a bit on the sweet side. Nothing special but a decent mixer
Sampled Don Q Anejo rum and for a 3 year rum it's not bad but there are better choices around. Might be good for mixing.
I wanted to buy a good run while in Rhode Island, thinking that I'd have a lot of choices. Boy was I wrong. That's the best I could find... Nothing to write about, really.
Cuba libre, daiquiri, or my fav now: dark n stormy cocktail Don Q saves the day.
Entey level of aged rum and like all Don Q rums; light and versatile. You could have it neat, with a little water or you could mix it. I like it with ginger ale or coke...neat, not so much.
It's s great supper or for mix smooth amber rum that leaves a good taste in your mouth
Easy drinking. Nothing really noticeable. Would not mix it.
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).
On the nose are harsh high notes of nail polish/varnish, which give way to sweet caramel. Taste is also sweet, with a medium-light body and finish. It's fairly boring, but what do you expect?
This uncomplicated rum could be a workhorse for mixed drinks, but there are better options available.
6- (originally 5, which seems overly harsh in retrospect)
It's Friday night and time for the rum review. 150 years of quality and innovations is evident in every bottle. The company legacy is the living force that drives their constant quest to perfect the art of rum. With wisdom that's been passed from the first generation to the current one. Six times it has passed through the Serallés family. Founded by Don Juan Serallés using a pot still he imported from France. His first casks were sold under his name. In addition to Destileria Seralleś he also founded the town of Meredatiaand named it after his wife Mercedes. Today Felix J. Serallés J runs the company as President and CEO of Destileria Serallés. Don Q Anejo is aged for 3 to 8 years in Bourbon casks and is a step up from the gold which is aged 2-3 years. 80 proof and a very sippable rum over ice or neat. The color in my opinion is a golden heather and straw in the glass a light amber in the bottle. Legs are slow to form and move. Being thin is a good sign of the lack of impurities and great quality. A light vanilla and aged oak from the used bourbon barrels along followed by a butterrum nose and caramel. The entry is bit dry but good on the palette, i get the tastes of light airy tobacco from a pipe, honey, and caramel. It has a decent burn on the tongue during the taste but not in the throat. The finish is much like honeyed tropical fruit. A bit of leather aftertaste, a sultry sweet but not to a great degree.
The drinks are unlimited to make, from the Anejo Mojito and Cohasset punch#2 to a scorpion bowl and Sancho's Salvation as well as neat or over ice.
The Anejo Mojito
2 oz Don Q Anejo
1 oz Fresh lime
3/4 oz simple syrup
7 mint leaves
1 dash Angostura bitters and fill remaining with chilled club soda
The Scorpion Bowl
In a pitcher or punch bowl
3 cups Crushed ice
2 oz gin
2 oz Don Q Anejo rum
3 oz Don Q Cristal rum
2 oz vodka
2 oz grenadine
3 oz lemon juice
8 oz orange juice
10 oz pineapple juice
and mix thoroughly pour into glasses and add one chunk of pineapple and 2 maraschino cherries on a pick
For the time being be good to one another and stay safe stay alert stay alive and drink responsibly. Till the morrow, Down the hatch.
Very nice molasses and oak flavor. Excellent value, good on the rocks or mixed with coke. My go to rum
lot of similarities to the old Cockspur 12, but not many to Mount Gay XO. Dry, cinnamon spicy, with a touch of wood.
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.
Just a very basic one. Really light nose, little sweet in flavour.
Light caramel color with hints of toasted almonds and light oak. Ok supper with mild alcohol aroma.
At first this rum doesn't smell of alcohol, the taste contains a certain amount of alcohol though it isn't overly strong, it is nice to drink but not outstanding
Relatively smooth in small sips. Pleasant after-taste.
