Don Q
Gran Anejo Rum

Category: Rum (Aged more than 3 Years)

Date Tasted:
Country: Puerto Rico
Alcohol: 40%
Light copper color. Exotic, fresh aromas and flavors of rainforest, chocolate glazed nuts, and passion fruit creme caramel with a thick, lively, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, intricate, long finish with shades of caramelized banana, maple creme and peanut brittle, fresh orange peel, and coriander seeds finish. An honest aged rum that will be a versatile crowd pleaser with plenty of bourbon barrel character.

Rum Aged more than 3 Years

Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged Rums from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a continuity of flavor in brands of Rum from year to year. Some aged Rums will give age statements stating the youngest Rum in the blend (e.g., 10-year-old Rum contains a blend of Rums that are at least 10 years old). A small number of French island Rums are Vintage Dated.
