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.
il vaut la peinr d 'etre gouté, pour le voyage, il vient de philippines . il goute le rhum, est agréable, festif, sucré mais les additifs trop présents. on a vraiment l impression qu il s agit d'un mix de rhum avec un peu de ceci et un peu de cela pour lui donner une identité. c 'est un bon achat mais pas un vrai rhum. (avis personnel)
Picked one up mostly for the nice label and the way the bottle looks.
Since i'm a beginner in sipping rum's I thought this would be a nice start.
But it wasn't...
Maybe I need to sip more other rum's and develope my tastebuds a bit more to get in to this one.
(edit) After tasting severall other rum's I'm beginning to like this one a bit more.I especially like the fruity taste of this rum)
this rum has a good taste in my opinion. pretty smokey aswell. if you search for a smokey rum wich tastes like vanilla this is definitely something for you. I'm in really good mood, that's why this rum gets a 7 out of 10. Otherwise a 6 could be a even better rating
Un de mes premiers rhum, au début j'aurais mis un bon 8 mais après avoir découvert d'autres horizons, ce rhum me parait fort "bidouillé"
Un arôme de chique limite exagéré...pas mauvais mais too much dans le goût.
Par contre, superbe packaging :)
belle bouteille on la croirait sortit d'un vielle épave du fond des mers, au nez sa sent la guimauve la vanille, le sucre cuit, au gout ces bizarre on dirait un sirop pour la toux, le caramel, avec un gout spécial dont je n'arrive pas a expliquer, je pense qu'il est taillé pour des cocktail avec des fruits frais il sera largement au dessus des premier prix de grande surface mais a déguster sur glace non En revanche il conviendra parfaitement au débutant qui veulent découvrir le rhum
I tasted Don Papa yesterday evening. This 7yo rum from Phillipines has a very pleasant smell and has a great taste. It's a sweet tasting rum. Even my wife liked it so that is a big plus :-)
een super rum voor de prijs. Een heerlijke rum fruitig hoop nog een fles te bemachtigen.
Notes d'agrumes prononcées et assez sucrées. Ne plaira pas à tout le monde.
I like the smell, the soft taste i think a good one eventhought my friends think different about this
Tastes like sugar and smells like vanilla, over the top. Can not recommend without coke, quite nice in a cocktail.
Very sweet vanilla syrup with some harshness on the way down. Not a great sipping experience for a relative newcomer to sipping rums. However, in a bind its fine - its a good conversation start and is great as an expensive mixer thanks to its strong vanilla flavour (not that I would recommend spending £30+ on a mixing rum)
Hola la verdad me sentí mal cuando lo cantamos en la ruta del ron porque no estaba tan bueno como me lo vendieron el olor y sabor no me dejo nada que les pueda compartir. Mucha química
Are you sure this is a rum? I just smell orange, glicerine and alcohol in some sort of incestuous mix, that should not be given to the general public.
The reason why this brand is so widespread beats the heck out of me. I can imagine the massive financial muscle behind it has allowed it to buy its space in the shelves, otherwise the world has gone completely mad.
This is a very sweet rum with taste of vanilla, caramel....kind of....but it somehow tastes artificial and strange No this is not my kind of rum
This rum is amazing! The sweet and strong taste puts you on a journey of a heavenly scale, flowing away from the daily obligations of life
Grabbed this coming through Bangkok airport for a very good price, good mixer if nothing else. Overly sweet with a nice nose, very light in colour with hints of vanilla and walnuts.
I own one bottle because it is easily drinkable for non-rum friends. Womens really like it.
I love sweet but this is way too much sweet, feels strange in the mouth and feels like artificial. It is a pity, because I expected much more.
Une de mes premières découvertes. Agréable au nez et au goût. Il m'a donné le goût du rhum.
Godis väldigt lättdrucken. Smak av apelsin vanilj... len
This rum is super sweat has a smell of vanille. Pretty tastefull in a Daiquiri though
Artificial- One word that says it all. This is all essence, glycerine and sugar. Nothing more. neutral spirit and a lab-made nonsense product.
Now I have already been little drunk when tasting this, but my later return to the bottle confirmed the few notes I managed to take the first time. Citrusy taste, but there is some depth beneath it, perhaps a burned banana peel or something. It goes down rather smoothly, and I swear I could taste notes of marshmallow and what I presume to be the strange taste of a cheap cholocate. But the sweetness and citrus dominate the taste. I cannot say this is what I expect from a rum, it reminds me in taste of a local herbal liquer flavoured probably similarily to this, but it isn't a bad drink. Given the price, I cannot rate too high as it is about 1.5x the price of Arcane in my market, and I consider that rum overpriced, but I wouldn't mind getting this as a gift or something, despite the fact I do enjoy other rums more.
A " table rum ", tasty and easy to drink... but this is not my definition of subtlety.
So, plenty of vanilla. Generous 7 this. Debatable whether you can class it as rum. I'm being kind. Nice enough to drink neat. Can't offer more than that. Move along.
