Don Q Double Cask
|Availability:||Out of stock|
Sipped, initially you get a drier more traditional Don Q profile – spicy ex-bourbon notes, vanilla and some dry spices – a touch of ginger and a little chilli and black pepper. Further sips as the palate adjust reveal more of the sweet notes from the nose. Whilst the Sherry notes aren’t overpowering or cloying as we have found with rums such as Dos Maderas, they are very much in the mix.
Raisins, red grapes and rich plums all mingle alongside deeper dark red wine notes. Which add both sweetness and a touch of bitterness. There is a slightly sharp note on the mid palate, which I actually quite enjoy alongside the sweetness.
