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.
Easily consumable in a bind
This rum has a vanille overkill in the nose. In the mouth, you just dont know what to do with it. I don't know what they put in this liquor, but for me, its just a chemical syrup... Hate it or love it!
However I love the design of the bottle. Very beautiful. I keep it in my collection just for that. And to get rid of unwanted guests... hehe...
Are you sure this is a rum? I just smell orange, glicerine and alcohol in some sort of incestuous mix, that should not be given to the general public.
The reason why this brand is so widespread beats the heck out of me. I can imagine the massive financial muscle behind it has allowed it to buy its space in the shelves, otherwise the world has gone completely mad.
This is a very sweet rum with taste of vanilla, caramel....kind of....but it somehow tastes artificial and strange No this is not my kind of rum
This rum is amazing! The sweet and strong taste puts you on a journey of a heavenly scale, flowing away from the daily obligations of life
Grabbed this coming through Bangkok airport for a very good price, good mixer if nothing else. Overly sweet with a nice nose, very light in colour with hints of vanilla and walnuts.
I love sweet but this is way too much sweet, feels strange in the mouth and feels like artificial. It is a pity, because I expected much more.
Artificial- One word that says it all. This is all essence, glycerine and sugar. Nothing more. neutral spirit and a lab-made nonsense product.

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