Destilería Serrallés Don Q Cristal 5yr 40%

RX3199 Pleasant Column Still Rum Under 50€

Don Q Cristal, crafted at the Destilería Serrallés in Puerto Rico, is a versatile rum distilled from molasses and aged for 5 years. It features aromas of green apple, lemon, vanilla, ginger, and subtle alcoholic notes. On the palate, you'll taste apple, lemon, vanilla, and young wood. Ideal for cocktails like Daiquiris and Mojitos, it offers a smooth, light experience comparable to vodka, making it a unique choice for those who prefer understated elegance in their drinks. Notably smoother than budget options like Bacardi or Havana Club, Don Q Cristal provides a clean, yet distinct rum flavor. Enjoy it neat for a simple, unintrusive sip or mix it into your favorite cocktails for an elevated drinking experience.

“What to write about a rum whose marketing text that writes here: "a touch more smoothness. So smooth, in fact, that you can substitute Cristal in a vodka drink, and most won't be able to tell the difference. "It's a rum from a time when rum was supposed to taste like vodka. It does that perfectly. It's almost invisible, yet it has a noticeable rum aroma. In a mojito with a drop of bitters, it cuts a fine figure - even if I prefer the Reserva.Still, how do you rate a rum (almost) without characteristics? At the self-set standard, he does well.”

“Pure quite nice. At the price you can not complain. In any case, X times better than Bacardi / Havana Club and other "cheap" white mix rums! For Daiquiri and Cuba libre if's little cost but still taste the masses goes all times absolutely clear.”

“Essentially rum-flavored vodka. A bit harsh on the nose with faint apple and ginger elements. On the palate soke lemon peel joins the party. Very light, short finish. Nothing offensive (except for the alcoholic sharpness on the nose) and about what you’d expect for a young Puerto Rican.”
