Don Q 151 Rum
Don Q // Puerto Rico
To coincide with the 150th anniversary of Destilería Serrallés, Don Q relaunched its 151 rum, which had been discontinued for several years. This addition to the Don Q product line is notable for being only the second overproof rum released by a Puerto Rican distillery. The Don Q 151 is a blend of light and dark rums aged a minimum of three years in used American oak barrels.
Gold RumRum that is often aged, but can also just have caramel-coloring added to provide color. No specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for aging for most countries with a few exceptions.
"The nose is relatively tame for an overproof rum, with notes of vanilla, caramelized sugar and smoke. The high-proof burn asserts itself immediately on the rich palate before offering caramel, coffee, dark chocolate and plantains. The warm, spicy finish lingers with dried fruit, oak and tobacco."
