Don Q Signature Release Single Barrel
Don Q Signature Release Single Barrel is a truly exceptional rum. Hand selected by the master distiller in 2009 from a private selection of the Serralles family's finest rum stocks, then laid to age in charred, American oak barrels and rested until its final bottling in 2019. Don Q Single Barrel, 2009 is a sublime and expertly crafted spirit made for those that always seek the exceptional.
Nose: Aromas of fruit and spice with smokey oak dominate, before honey butter and vanilla over fruit cake and compote, with just a hint of molasses.
Palate: A bold entry of toasted oak leads to a creamy mouthfeel with butter cookie, accented by vanilla and Creme brulee.
Finish: Hints of bitter cocoa and charred oak linger in the medium long finish.
