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
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
Absolutely Love this Rum. Once you start sipping this Rum, you cannot stop. It is smooth, very aromatic, with an extremely long finish. It has unique flavors that I have only had with this Rum. Very easy on the Alcohol taste as compared to some other Rums. Enjoy.
For me this was a big surprice. I found it very tasty. Weak color. Very strong fruity nose. A big surprice the taste with exotic fruits. No too strong aftertaste. Served with one big ice cube
Sweet rum with a predominant flavor of orange. Reminded me somewhat to the Pyrat Rum. Tried this rum with a sundowner at the beach which was the perfect atmosphere for that light, sweet and tasty rum.
Chuť i vůně výrazně sladká. Aroma je syntetické po cirkusových plodech. Umělá je i chuť. Tenhle rum bude jistě bodovat v dámské společnosti. Ke mě domů už nesmí....nyní jej manželka používá do pečení a štrůdl s Don Papa je docela dobrý :D
Okay lots of bad reviews here. I tried this and was very surprised. Sweet rum with a nice after taste. Great on ice, Carmel up front and definitely worth while drinking ... not a 4. Try it.
This is very sweet rum. Very distinct smell of oranges/orange peel (and bit of toffee), the taste is sweet but bitter, the classic rum sweetness is overpowered by the taste very close to cointreau (the orange peels, sweetness, burn). It's very interesting taste for a rum, but for me it's bit sweet and most of all - it lacks the typical aged rum characteristics, which I'm looking for in good rum.

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