     Don Q has finally released its anticipated Oak Barrel Spiced Rum after first announcing plans to release it for a one year now.  “Don Q first announced plans for the release at the launch of its Single barrel last year.”  Oak Barrel Spiced Rum is created from rums aged between three and six years.  This is the “structure, smoothness and tanins” to differentiate the Don Q’s from other spiced rums, the natural blend of vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove is then added Yielding a “dry” spiced rum that is free from artificial colors and flavors. 
      “We took our time in crafting our Don Q Oak Barrel Spiced Rum,” said Roberto Serrall├ęs, the sixth-generation Don Q rum maker.  We wanted to make sure we created an elevated experience for our customers; one that would reveal how barrel ageing and pure ingredients can take spiced rum from an ordinary mixer to an exceptional spirit that is ideal for crafting unique cocktails as well as for drinking neat, on the rocks or with a splash.”

          Tasting of the expression from the nose to the tasting notes includes vanilla, nutmeg, honey oak and tanins.   Don Q Oak Barrel Spiced Rum is bottled at 90 proof/45% abv and is available across the US now priced at $29.99.
