Unlike most clear rums, Don Q uses a multiple distillation system to produce a cleaner, more refined, and more delicate flavor profile. So a Don Q drink will sip smoother than a drink made with another rum. So smooth, in fact, that you can substitute Cristal in a vodka drink, and most wont be able to tell the difference. Its then aged in American White Oak barrels to impart a touch more smoothness. Try it. Youll see.
