Don Q Anejo Rum
This is the Don Q Anejo Rum, made using a multiple distillation technique and matured in American oak barrels in Puerto Rico. Very well suited to sipping neat.
Under the watch of sixth-generation Master Distiller Roberto Serralles, Don Q Añejo is distilled five times in a continuous still, then aged from three to ten years in used American white oak barrels. According to Don Q, up to 10% of the aged rum is lost to evaporation – the “Angel’s Share” – compared to an average of 2% in Scotland.
Don Q Anejo Rum is produced at Destileria Serrallés in the town of Ponce in southern Puerto Rico. A blend of rums aged between 3 and 12 years old, this is a fantastic example of a rum that is dry yet has a sweet profile. This works exceptionally well when sipped on its own, or with a splash of ginger beer.
We like to think Puerto Rico has the happiest angels in all the world: when we age our añejo rum, we lose up to 10 percent to evaporation. Compare that to Scotland, which loses only two percent to the so-called “angel’s share”. Aged in American white oak barrels from three to five years, añejo offers a bouquet and mouthfeel that rum experts find…Well…Intoxicating.
