DON Q VERMOUTH CASK FINISH
Don Q Double Aged Vermouth Cask Finish rum ventures beyond the expected and offers rum aficionados an innovative way to enrich their cocktail experience. This blend of rums is first aged 5 to 8 years in American white oak barrels and then finished for 4 to 6 weeks in Mancino Vecchio vermouth casks crafted from Italian oak. The double aging process imparts a unique complexity and richness of flavour not found in any other rum. Simply put, Don Q Double Aged Vermouth Cask Finish rum is nothing short of exceptional.
Nose: Vanilla and honey notes emerge initially with support from dried spices such as cinnamon and darker elements from chocolate caramels. There's a whiff of bitter herbs underneath too.
Palate: White grapes, seedless raisins and bright molasses form the core of the palate from which ripe orange and cloves add depth.
Finish: A little exotic fruit and a lasting herbaceous tone linger.
