Don Q Reserva 7
Don Q // Puerto Rico
Don Q Reserva 7 is a new release crafted by master blender Jaiker Soto in collaboration with Silvia Santiago, Maestra Ronera, and Roberto Serrallés, sixth-generation rum maker. Soto blended both light and heavy rums distilled in two types of column stills. These rums each aged for a minimum of 7 years in American white oak barrels. Bottled at 40% ABV, it is available as of August 2020.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".

"The aroma is of moderate intensity with molasses, vanilla, oak and a light char smoke. There's a hint of tropical fruit and chocolate here as well. The rum is medium bodied and the barrel spices give the rum a little dimension. It's just lightly sweet on the palate and has a bittersweet and gentle spiced finish. Nothing too flashy here; the rum is a solid uncomplicated pour. Good to mix in a long drink (a Rum and Coke, in particular) or just with a couple of rocks and a squeeze of lime."
