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
Agree with all reviews, it ain't rum for me. I gave it a 3 because of the marketing and branding, that DP does well. But its a bit of a scam. Though the regular malibu or red bull consumer may find DP the best rum there is and that's unfortunate - i believe - to the spirit of rum.
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.
Chutnal som ho spolu s rumami Pyrat, Zacapa, Plantation. Zaujal ma najviac. Výrazná pomarančová chuť a chuť po kandizovanom ovocí. Svojou sladkosťou a voňavosťou výborná voľba pre ženy a ľudí, kt. si chcú vychutnať pohárik. Predpokladám, že na opitie vhodný nebude...ranné prebudenie by asi bolo kruté, s bolesťou hlavy :) Určite odporúčam skúsiť aj ľuďom, ktorý neobľubujú tvrdý alkohol (vo všeobecnosti vinkári), tento kúsok ideálne prelomí ľady :)
I found this one very interesting. It has a lot of tropical notes in the nose. It is both intense and interesting. It is sweet and enjoyable.
Considering comments from other reviewers concerning possible cheating and flavouring, it feels almost bad to enjoy it. Sorry.
Čekal jsem hodně, dostal né tolik. Vanilkový rum, vůně/chuť vanilkové bonbónky typu sisinky, výrazné sladké aroma i chuť. Babské pití. Ale not bad jen je potřeba se naladit na tu sladší jízdu. Další lahev do domu už ne.
This rum is sweet. I mean sugary. It is syrupy and golden, it certainly looks the part but is very overpowering.
I liked the look of the rum and bottle is lovely, personally it is far too sweet but is great as a mixer in a long drink or cocktail. Great for those that have a sweet tooth, handy to give to guests.
