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...
Mediocre rum that is very commercial. Mass produced and poorly flavored. Not even flavored properly. Only been in business 8 years but are selling products that are much older (labeled anyway). I smell a fish. With excellent ingredients available at low cost why are they producing this?
An unnatural, artificial smell comes up when you open the bottle. It doesn't get better after a few minutes in a glass, and certainly not when drinking it. If you want to drink rum, don't buy and drink it. But if you like very sweet liqueurs, you might give it a try. This drink, I deliberately do not say rum, is extremely sweet, tastes and smells absolutely artificial and chemical. That has nothing to do with real rum. Since rum is rated here, it gets only one point, which should actually be zero points.
Very sweet, Rum with lots of vanilla and spice. Not a taste for everybody, and more on the liqueur side of drinks, but good if you dont plan on having different drinks afterwards.

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