The first in a line of new vintage products from Don Q. This 2005 vintage is a single barrel product aged in used American bourbon barrels. In an effort to stay true to their endeavor of creating a true single barrel product the rum is only blended with water for proofing and no other rums are used in the blending process.

  • Aged Rum
    Rum 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".

Tasting Notes

"The first sip of the rum lays a foundation of spicy oak and caramelized vanilla. There is a touch of woody acidity as the fruity bananas and apples notes dance across the tongue. As those notes fade, another layer manifests revealing roasted almond and coconut, brown sugar, Madagascar vanilla, charred oak, black pepper, and anise. A light bite of minerals finish the rum."
