The Puerto Rican expression was first made available through a three-month exclusive agreement with London bar Mahiki, and rolled out UK-wide in November 2015. Don Q Gran Añejo is made from a blend of rums aged between three and 12 years, combined with Solera aged rums aged up to 20 years. The expression is said to have notes of “vanilla, molasses, dried fruits and toasted nuts” as well as” oak and tobacco”, making the rum “ideal for pairing with cigars”. Our panel found the offering “pleasant, slightly oily and not too sweet”, and awarded it a Master medal.
