Product description

Unlike most clear rums, Don Q uses a multiple distillation system to produce a cleaner, more refined, and more delicate flavor profile. So a Don Q drink will sip smoother than a drink made with another rum. So smooth, in fact, that you can substitute Cristal in a vodka drink, and most won’t be able to tell the difference. It’s then aged for 1 1/2 to 5 years in American White Oak barrels to impart a touch more smoothness. Try it. You’ll see.

FAQs

White rum is also called 'silver rum' or 'light rum'. It's a blonde colored rum, either unaged, or aged for about a year, sometimes less, in steel tanks. The tanks give it that notable light color, while maintaining a light body and sweet taste that rum is known for. Light rum is that light color due to its short aging period.
