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 Mojito rum is infused with natural mint as well as (presumably, since it's a mojito) lime flavors.

Seldom at a loss for descriptors, the 2010 Beverage Testing Institute review found "celery soda notes" on the finish.

Drink Hacker gave the Don Q Mojito a B- Grade saying, "I think the better solution to the mojito problem is to stick to unflavored rum, add mint, lime, and soda yourself."

Very well made. If you want a mint flavored rum, forget the other Puerto Rican Rum and grab this one. Only negative is that given the already low proof shaking this in a drink dilutes it even further. You either need to use a good bit more but you end up unbalancing the flavor. You may need to back it up with some Don Q Cristal.
