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>Cristal

Don Q
Cristal


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

Production:
A blend of rums aged from 1½ to 5 years in American white oak barrels. The base rum is first aged and then goes through a charcoal filtration process to eliminate the colour. This aging process takes place in barrels which were previously used to age bourbon and then twice more to age whiskey, removing excessive tannins and giving subtle and soft caramels and vanilla flavours.

Tasting Notes:
Bright crystalline nose, smooth and clean with slight butterscotch notes, backstopped with hints of tobacco, leather and oak. On the palate citrus, dried fruits and flower notes intermingle with a clean light body. Nice drying finish to it. Finish is medium-long with a spicy dry tingling to the lips.
