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.
Easily consumable in a bind
Well, this some how got on the shelf so I tried it. Don't make the same mistake I did. It has a few notes but it's hard to tell if they're synthetic or not.
Worth leaving on the shelf instead of losing $40.
A very sweet smell, couldn't figure it out at once wha at was the taste and smell, but after I read it was vanilla (Artificial and over ruling).
I think if they add less flavour and leave the taste get a natural flavour in 12 to 15 years it will become a better rum.
Because a rum drinker wants to smell and taste a natural rum, without adding artificial flavour.
I paid € 32,- for a bottle, I expect more quality for this.
My origin is from the Dominican Republic and this rum not even reaches at the bottom of our cheapest rum Brugal.
Dont get me wrong. I like sweet rum. But this is another drink and not rum. Very sweet, very very artificial. Additionally, it has a citrus flavor, too. I really dont like it. More like a liquor for shots like Ramazotti or Limoncello.
Great marketting Great bottle but at the end of the day lousy rum just not my thing. I have an opened mind like Agricoles, Fiji... just can’t get this. Anyone checked the added sugar level?
This spirit (called rum) has very strong vanilla flavour, which feels artificial. I really cant say I enjoyed it . It is sweet, but the feeling is not like rum sipping more than sirup flavoured vodka.
Sirupy strange artificial taste. The bottle looks nice but with a close look, the print is very cheap. Couldn't get it down pure. As it is more expensive I didn't want to throw it away. Mixed with water and apple juice at least drinkable.

"For all its sweet sugariness, its really very drying and bitter on the palate once it all settles down."
