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.
Not like the better aged rums: rather sweet, smooth and with a taste of orange. Not a strong finish, fades away pretty quickly. Easy consumable
If first impressions are anything to go by the bottle sells itself. It is a great looking present! The flavour are deep oak with a strong vanilla aftertaste great over just one ice cube. This will always have a place in my drinks cupboard.
I've tasted this rum and I never do it again... too, too and too sweet.
Too sweet, strong taste of vanilla and sweet citrus. Nice bottle, but nothing for people who dislike vanille flavor...
Un Rhum de degustation, certains le déteste d'autres l'adore, si vous aimez avoir un plein de saveurs différentes en bouche avec un côté alcool bien soutenu, que vous n'êtes pas fan du trop sec, vous allez faire de ce Rhum une priorité, perso je suis fan!
The bottle is truly beautiful. And that's about it for the upsides.
The smell is very sweet and feels quite artificial. Cough syrup is pretty good comparison. And by no means is this flavored just by aging in oak. The rum has a very strong smell of orange peel and there are some spices inside as well. That by itself would not be a problem if this rum was marketed as spiced rum, but it definitely is not.
This was a big disappointment for me.
Barva tmavší, výrazné aroma ideální pro.pomalé pití
For we who like a sweet rum, Don Papa is superbly pleasing, a delicious concoction befitting the wonderful Filipina & Filipino people. Aged 7 years in its basic version, Don Papa combines aspects wonderfully: Sweetness, vanilla, a touch of fruit flavours, & a pleasing good-character 'burn & bite' as one would wish from a top-quality rum. My suggestion is very little ice, perhaps only a chilled glass, so that one doesn't alter the tasty balance of Don Papa straight. Will have too much vanilla & sweetness for some - as if Captain Morgan with more bite - but Don Papa is a great sipper for some of the rest of us.
Don Papa rum is named after great late 1800s - early 1900s Filipino revolutionary Dionisio 'Papa Isio' Magbuelas, a 'babaylan' able to link to ancestral spirits; Don Papa was a rebel against both Spanish & Yank American occupiers. The wonderful label & canister of Don Papa, quite fit this superb rum from Negros island, Philippines, mellowed 7 years in oak near volcanic Mount Kanlaon by the Bleeding Heart Rum Co.
Aangename zoetere rum perfect voor beginnende rum drinker zoals ik:)vanille houterig &rozijnen
Beaucoup de parfums : de l'orange de la mandarine confite, un peu de vanille, de sucre et plein d'autres choses !!!
Un rhum facile a boire sur glace.
Too sweet nose, extreme taste of orange, sweet citrus taste. Different to lot of rums, the bottle is a masterpiece!
There ist som funny smell to start with - dark and bitter. Really like some medecin. It tastes like some mixture of oak and rubber. The best thing about this is the design of the paper on the bottle. Sorry.
Syrup' s taste, very strange, not sure of the production.Définitively not my rhum, no interest.
Granted this is a little bit of a fun bottle... It tastes synthetich somewhat like bubble gum. It is however taking the piss of all that I love about rum. This mass produced bottle has so much fake sweetening from sugar and vanilla that is can hardly go under the category rum?
Sweet, spiced rum with distinct flavor of vanilla and lime. I recomended for ladies.
The scent is sweet and artificial, color is unnatural and it tastes primarily sweet with a surprisingly spicy aftertaste.
Something you can use to top your waffles or ice cream. It's over the top, even for most cocktails.
Voto 9 per la bellezza dell'etichetta, i disegni vintage e tutto l'aspetto esteriore in generale.
Ma al gusto....
Appena versato nel bicchiere, si viene colpiti dal profumo fin troppo dolce.
Quasi l'odore di una RedBull... con zucchero..
Sapore ovviamente dolce, frutti canditi, uva passa, sciroppi di frutta rossa.
Riempie subito la bocca, la intasa.
Dolce mal bilanciato..... o forse ben bilanciato, se l'intezione era stendere il bevitore sfortunato.
Un caramellone liquido... nel senso di caramella sciolta in alcool...
"Se devo berlo............ non lo ribevo"
Nice molassy sweet rum which reminds me to butter scotch. Not my personal favorite, but definitely worth a try!
Very bad smell and taste like candy. I do not recommend it. Very unbalanced. Does not even taste like rum. Probably good to mix in a cocktail/ party time
I love it, and also womans love it due to his sweet fruity taste !
We love or we hate ...
Rhum sucré, voir même trop sucré avec un arrière gout trop typé. Un trop grand mélange de saveurs qui donne au final peu d'intérêt à ce rhum si ce n'est la qualité graphique de son étiquette. Donc un rhum à posséder plus comme objet décoratif.
I had just a little of this rum. I was looking forward to drink it, but there was too much vanilla taste, and disappointed a little. I just miss there more true rum taste. This vanilla was too much for me.
Süßer und milder Rum, eher unauffällig, mit Cola sehr lecker.
This requires no pretentious language, it quite simply is a marvellous easy drinker that can be enjoyed by the majority.
Vanilla a plenty and smooth as you could like it.
