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.
I have a handfull of all time favorites and this is one of them.
I love sweet rums and there is always a bottle of Don Papa available at home.
I was in a small English village pub in Cornwall. Asked for Zaccapa rum but no luck. Barkeep suggested I try this small batch sipping rum from the Philippines called Don Papa. It was the smoothest and most flavorful rum I have tasted. Plantation Anniversary being a very close second.
Best rum for me! Love the sweet aroma, love the times with Papacek, cause those are times of good mood
Before you drink this, you must understand that though it is labelled as an aged rum, this has a lot of characteristics of spiced rum.
For my personal taste this is great, I have a sweet tooth so the slight caramel event, and sweet orange peel taste is something I can drink all night. Lovely stuff but avoid if you don't like sweeter rums
I Tried a bunch of Rums and I can easily say this is the best rum! Really. It's smells,tastes like vanilla/caramel. It is so smooth but at the same time make you drunk very very fast.
I tried the 10 years one and it's a bit to strong(This one is 40% and 10 years is 43%).
Try it! For me this is what I am compeering others rums with.
I just can't understand why this Rum splits people so. Whilst I rate this as one of my favourite sipping Rums others dislike it. All I can suggest is that you try it for yourselves. I think that you will enjoy it. Probably the best value for money Rum that you can buy
Köpte dem i Biarritz. Fantastiskt god, mycket smaker med sötma.
I just came back from a trip to Negros Oriental, Philippines where Don Papa rum is made. Like the lush,sweet and beautiful island of Negros, Don Papa will put you in a state of sweet vanilla heaven being one of the smoothest rums I've ever had. Goes very well with Ginger Ale. Salamat Don Papa!
This rum is great! one of the best i have ever tried. Sweet and good spices. might be sweet for some people, but the mix is fantastic.
Jeden z nejlepších rumů, krásná vůně a netradiční chuť
Kvalitní rum, jemná chuť s trošku ostřejším koncem. Je to rum, který slouží k tomu si ho vychutnat!
I know this probibly isnt to everyones taste, but if you prefer the sweeter vanilla spiced flavours like rebelion then this is for you.
I get it for £32 from sainsburys.
Definitely worth a try!!
Doesnt matter what it is, its great! I drink a lot of rums and this one is anytime joy with complex taste.
Dla miłośników Legendario Elixir de Cuba ten rum będzie genialny. A ja właśnie taki RUM uwielbiam, przyprawiony, z bogatym bukietem smakowym. Można pić na czysto, pasuje do deserów, ale w swoją moc ukazuje w drinkach. Dobrze jest go zmrozić w lodówce. Może wydawać się trochę likierowy. Ale zgodnie z zasadą pisaną, tak jak to ma miejsce w przypadku soków 100%. Jeśli na butelce masz napis RUM - to jest to RUM z dodatkiem ewentualnie "upiększaczy". Natomiast jak masz napisane "Spirit drink" to jest to mieszanina, w której w większości są dodatki i rum jako pomniejszy dodatek.
Piłem różne rumy i na prawdę to jest niedoceniony rum warty uwagi. Dla ludzi lubiących rumy "przyprawowe" to jest to chyba jedna z najbardziej wybitnych propozycji dostępnych na rynku.
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.
Really easy drinker mixed with coke. Lovely. Smooth, vanilla notes
Absolutely Love this Rum. Once you start sipping this Rum, you cannot stop. It is smooth, very aromatic, with an extremely long finish. It has unique flavors that I have only had with this Rum. Very easy on the Alcohol taste as compared to some other Rums. Enjoy.
One of the best rums, a beautiful vanilla scent, a wonderful taste, a pleasantly sweet finish. price 33 eur
Was surprised to read some of the other reviews. Maybe I’m not that much of a rum snob. It’s smooth enough to sip without mix. It’s sweet and has a nice flavour. It’s distilled from molasses so it will be sweeter and a bit more syrupy than other rums. Not available, or hard to find in Canada. I’ll keep drinking it when it’s available.
My wife bought me a bottle of this for when my son was born, and I have bought him a smaller bottle for when he turns 18. Quite a sweet rum, but not overly sweet. Only tried it on the rocks, but could imagine it would taste great with a mixer
Excellent rhum. Goût différent des autres. Un must have.
My review is all about taste. I can't comment on the real or fake nature of the production.
I was bought this rum as a gift and I really enjoy sipping it. Sweet taste with strong vanilla scent and flavour. I very much enjoy taking this pretty bottle out the cabinet.
Man liebt ihn oder man hasst ihn. Ich liebe ihn. Er ist in allen Belangen extrem. Sehr süss und eine Explossion an Geschmäckern. Nicht für jeden Tag, aber ab und zu muss ein ein Papa sein.
