Proof66 Notes

Don Q rums are made in Puerto Rico at the Serralles distillery and began production in 1865. There is a great write-up at the Liquid Muse describing how Serralles began a multi-million dollar investment in 2004 to remake their facilities to employ maximum sustainability. This includes waste C02 going to soda drink manufacturers, waste water being "polished" for irrigation, composting the solid waste products, and recycling the glass.

Don Q gold rum is aged between five and nine years; Serralles claims it has a "robust and integral flavor" for mixing in cocktails.

Not a fan of this one at all. When mixed the rum comes through oily and overpowered Will not be buying again

Reminds me a bit of younger Havana Club (the real one- not the fake), more body, spice, and complexity than the other dominant Puerto Rican rum. A remarkably good rum for a gold and for the money. Many or colored and dumbed down with caramel and will take the paint of a car.This on the other hand was quite smooth, nicely spicy and just enough fire to let you know you are drink real rum. Price is amazing for what you get.
