Key Notes About Rum So You Can Master The Uses For The Holidays
Which rum you choose to use will affect the end result with taste. My suggestion is aged rum. Don Q Gran Añejo is a super premium rum. First, Don Q Gran Añejo is a masterful blend that is aged in American white oak barrels 9 to 12 years. Next, it is carefully aged in Spanish sherry casks using the Solera aging system. In the subtle aroma, you can identify hints of vanilla and dark caramel, originating from the prolonged contact of the rum with the barrel. Don Q Gran Añejo rum has no additives, artificial sugars or coloring. Additionally, they use aged rum in all their rum products, including their flavors, in which they only use natural flavorings. This is how they are masterful and create award-winning rum! In short, award-winning is desirable in foods and as a libation.

3 Masterful Uses Of Rum For The Holidays
For today’s discussion of 3 masterful uses of rum for the holidays, I am referring to Don Q Gran Añejo rum which is 80 proof, 40% ALC/VOL.
The tasting notes add to each masterful use.
The tasting notes are the deep complex nose of molasses, cigar tobacco, and dark caramel.
Delightfully smooth and lush with pronounced notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and honey.
Given these points, there are far more uses than just cocktails!
#1 Delectable Baking
Rum balls match the pronounced notes of vanilla and honey, in other words, this is a divine match for a rum choice.
Roll those rum balls and ‘snip’ a taste, you will love your baking a bit more!
Rum cakes can be exceptional as well if you use this choice of rum!
#2 Holiday Cocktails & Drinks
In the event that you drink it straight up, pack it on ice or make an Old Fashioned with the Don Q Gran Añejo rum you are sure to love what is in your glass!
#3 Grilled Meats
I bet you never considered your beverage with grilled meats outside the normally suggested pairings. Seriously, think out of the box and learn how to really indulge in those grilled foods. Prime rib, lamb, chicken, and steak taste great as you pair the award-winning rum and sip with your grilled meat. Grilled meat is defined by the tasting notes of this rum. Generally speaking, the notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and honey truly define the meat flavor. As has been noted, lavishly living rum out loud is easy if you choose the right award-winning rum. Cheers & Happy Holidays. ~ DANA
