Don Q

The constant pursuit to perfect the art of distillation has been passed down through six generations of the Serrallés family to create Puerto Rico’s number one rum, Don Q. The rums are named after Don Quixote; just as this famous literary character represents the search for a perfect world, Don Q signifies the family’s quest for perfection in rum. With an enthusiasm rivalled only by their passion for quality, Don Q have invested significant time, knowledge, and resources to make the distillery one of the cleanest and greenest in the spirits industry. A sustainable approach to making Don Q rum leads to a superior product as well as a healthy ecosystem. Not only does the distillery then reap the benefits, they get to do what’s best for the people and wildlife of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Sea. Aging in American white oak casks and careful blending practices have been perfected over the last 150 years, ensuring that Don Q rums are consistently of a high standard of excellence with distinctive bouquets and balance.

Don Q<br>Añejo

Don Q
Añejo


ABV: 40%
Pack Size: 6 x 70cl
Country of Origin: Puerto Rico

Production:
Don Q Añejo is a blend of rums aged from three to eight years in American white oak barrels and is left with its colour intact. We like to think Puerto Rico has the happiest angels in all the world: when the Añejo rum is aged, up to 10 percent is lost to evaporation. Compare that to Scotland, which loses only two percent to the so-called “Angel’s Share”.

Tasting Notes:
A premium rum prized for its high quality, immediate oak, vanilla and caramel aromas followed by molasses and soft leather. Rich texture, coats the palate with a soft tannin and lingering cognac-like finish. Works fairly for all types of rum drinks were you want a older rum with a fair amount of wood and presence without a lot of sweetness or overly heavy body.
