Destilería Serrallés, producer of the Puerto Rican rum brand Don Q, has announced the launch of Don Q Reserva 7.
This expression is a blend of multi-column distilled light rums and single copper column distilled heavy rums, aged for a minimum of seven years in American white oak barrels.
“We wanted to create a rum with a distinctive flavor profile and maturity that had balanced notes and the characteristics fans have come to expect from Don Q Rums,” says Jaiker Soto, master blender. “With Reserva 7, our goal was to craft a rum that honored the Serrallés family and their legacy of making world-class rum. It was an honor to taste through reserves and blend a selection of aged rums to create a smooth and elegant expression.”
On the nose of Don Q Rum Reserva 7 are notes of oak, dark caramel and spices, the company says, before a body of chocolate, toasted almonds, raisins and aprico. The rum is 40% ABV.
Don Q Reserva 7 comes in a new bottle design for the brand, including an updated image and logo. The rum is available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $24.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
