From the Serralles family distillery located near the city of Ponce on the south coast of Puerto Rico, this new 2005 Vintage Don Q Single Barrel Rum reflects the signature style of the company’s legacy of producing authentic dry aged rums.
Don Q Single Barrel rum is part of a limited edition series, bottled from a limited selection of exceptional single barrel Puerto Rican rum laid down in 2005.
Crafted from molasses using a modern five column still, this unique spirit by Master Distiller Silvia Santiago is worthy of the Serrallés family name and their 150 year reputation for producing exceptional rum.
On the nose, a delicate sweetness over toasted wood leads to a pleasant note of cane, a touch of sourdough and nut butter, with a hint of marzipan. On the palate, a delicate entry quickly develops a pleasant warmth that features charred and toasted bourbon wood before a rich buttery viscosity persists into the long finish.
Enjoyed neat in a fine tasting glass, the 2005 Single Barrel is a delightful experience for those that truly appreciate a well aged, dry light rum.
Bottled at 40% ABV (80 proof), the limited edition 750ml bottle of Don Q Single Barrel 2005 Vintage rum sells for $39.99.
