Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Don Papa Small Batch Rum is produced by the Bleeding Heart Rum Company on the southern island of Negros in the Philippines. The rum is distilled from molasses, then aged for over 7 years in American oak barrels, and lastly charcoal filtered.
The name Don Papa rum was inspired by Papa Isio, a leader of the Philippine revolution against the Spanish who led his island to independence before joining the main revolutionary movement.
It is kind of sweet, but still very soft and tasty. If liquers like Capitan Bucanero can be here and rewarded with a good marks, this definetely shall not lose points for being slightly sweet. It is not a liquer.
Koupil jsem láhev obyčejného bílého rumu (Havana či Plantation), přisladil javorovým sirupem a přidal vybrané aroma od Moninu (vanilku a pomeranč). Výsledek potěšil teenagery, dospělé, důchodce. Muže i ženy. Ještě vymyslím příběh, vyšperkuji láhev a nasadím cenu…
sladký rum, určený aby zaujal široké masy. Pomerne drahý
Tastes a bit like sour grapes. Not recommended but if you are offered a taste try it - it might be better to you and at least you have not bought a bottle beforehand
The chemicals are strong with this one. I tasted a vanilla and nuts aroma but you could tell they were added later. It almost did not taste like rum, more like those homemade dried fruit liquors that are popular in the countryside in Italy. Not absolutely bad per se, especially if you get the chance to mix it, but I am reluctant to compare it with others
Un peu artificiel pour le caramel mais très présent
Amazing aroma which gets better with slight heat from your hand holding the glass. Very smooth and easily dipped neat
It has a better taste and Are more round than the big brother the "Black".
Is is round and easy to love for all
Smooth and sweet, I've never regretted sipping this one. And the bottle is nice ;)
There is strong probiotic drink flavor, very strange rum.
There may be someone in the world, who can drink this rum, I can drink it with only one bite too.
Het label ziet er cool uit. Verder drinkt deze rum lekker weg.
top chuť, navyková vůně, sladší rumy u mne jednoznačně vedou, vždy mám aspoň jeden v záloze
Looks good in this fine bottle. But it all stops there. Vanilla bomb with mint flavour. Horrible is the word for it. Reminds me of captain morgan private stock, that taste like an ass brushed it's teeth with minty vanilla toothpaste. No buy.
Un rhum commercial pour les non initiés. Pas mauvais mais sans plus
Süsse pampige scheisse. Würd ich nie kaufen. Gibt es besseres
Fruity, sweet and realy good rum. In nose and taste You can find vanilla, honey and dry fruit.
...sweet for my taste. Some chemical after taste that does not feel like rum
Der Rum schmeckt nach künstlichen Tuti-Fruti Aromen. Hat sehr wenig mit anderen guten Rumsorten gemeinsam
There are so many better choices around. Buy this one only if nothing better is on the menu.
Un Rhum trop sucré qui n'a pas connu un fût de bois... alors peux t'on dire que cela est du rhum ? Au vu du prix mieux vaut aller voir ailleurs.
sladký, trochu chemická vůně, v chuti vanilka a citrusy, krásná láhev.
It's definitely not a sipper, I would use it only for some cocktails and even then I would be careful with it. It tastes like old munk or like.
I'm not sure why most folks taste vanilla or caramel. The bottle I tired is clearly butterscotch with a peppery edge. Also, I am not sure why most think it is any sweeter than many other rums rated much higher. Zacapa, Kirk & Sweeney, Dictator, Bones, Diplomatico ER, Afrohead and on and on. I also did not find it syrupy.
Would I drink it all the time? Nope. Occasionally? Yep. Kind of like a desert rum. Is it priced right? Pretty much.
