Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - A soft and muted nose leads to an incredibly smooth and dry palate. A first impression of subtle vanilla sweetness leads to a lingering and bone dry finish. The liquid is light in body and crystal clear in appearance (Apr 2014)
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.
