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...
This drink (I refuse to call it rum) seems to polarize people unlike any other. I was hoping to end up in the “like” category as I enjoy sweet rums like Plantation XO and Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. However, I am unable to see past the fake flavouring and I can’t imagine doing anything with this other than pouring it out and regretting I spent the money.
Na Slovensku asi najpredavanejší rum. Krásne vonia. Je sladký no má aj svoju silu a chutí po pomarančoch a vanilke. Určite odporúčam aj každému kto chce s rumami začat!
Un blend qui m'a séduit à mes débuts de dégustateur.
Au fil des années, il a beaucoup évolué et les dernières versions sont beaucoup plus épicées.
A 4.5-5 on my scale. A really nice bouquet, but the first sip overwhelms one with a fruity/citrus flavor, described by my wife as tasting like Juicy Fruit Gum. Not quite sure what to make of that strong fruit flavor, even when mixed.

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