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 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.
Well this was a let down for me. Seems artificiall sweet and fruity. Cannot recommend. Perhaps works in coctails but there are way better options for that as well. (E.g. Diplomatico Mantuano)
Färg: Mörk brun, liten oljighet finns.
Arom: Vanilj, karamell och sötma från torkad frukt (men inte för söt), mao. ljuvligt arom.
Smak: Karamell, lite vanilj. Något spretigt. Lätt smuttad (easy sippin' rum).
Kan varmt rekommendera den.
It is kind of sweet, but still very soft and tasty. If liquers like Capitan Bucanero can be here and rewarded with a good marks, this definetely shall not lose points for being slightly sweet. It is not a liquer.
Tastes a bit like sour grapes. Not recommended but if you are offered a taste try it - it might be better to you and at least you have not bought a bottle beforehand
The chemicals are strong with this one. I tasted a vanilla and nuts aroma but you could tell they were added later. It almost did not taste like rum, more like those homemade dried fruit liquors that are popular in the countryside in Italy. Not absolutely bad per se, especially if you get the chance to mix it, but I am reluctant to compare it with others

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