Agree with all reviews, it ain't rum for me. I gave it a 3 because of the marketing and branding, that DP does well. But its a bit of a scam. Though the regular malibu or red bull consumer may find DP the best rum there is and that's unfortunate - i believe - to the spirit of rum.

Tried it both neat and on the rocks. First sip got me positively surprised, I definitely enjoyed it - however before the glass in front of me was empty, I was already sure I will not be able to swallow another one. Its sweetness becomes overwhelming and it does not taste like aged rum at all. To summarize this spirit: if you fancy a single, pleasant drink on the rocks to end a long day - Don Papa Small Batch may meet your requirements, if sweetness is your thing. On the other hand, if you'd like to feel the taste of rum on your tongue, choose something else from the cabinet.
Update: Rating drops from 5/10 to 3/10 - some time passed and I cannot push myself to sip it again solo. I tried mixing Don Papa into daiquiri and it was a mistake I don't want to repeat in the future.

This is at best something to make cocktails out of. Undrinkable as a sipping rum. Very close to toothpaste in smell and taste.

Smells like maple syrup with some citrus. Tastes like IronBru. Really sweet and interesting flavour. If you just enjoy it for what it is instead of being a pretentious twat, then it is excellent.

De derde deze avond en het meest zoete van deze avond

By far the worst Spirit that I have ever tried. I am glad that I purchased a small tasting bottle and didn't waste money on a big one. This stuff is not drinkable. It is overly sweet and has a very strong taste of artificial vanilla. There is more vanilla in this then in Vanilla Coke. This is not rum!

Velice chutný, sladký rum. Takový co chutná asi každému.

Déçu par la dégustation. Rhum artificiel. On se demande s'il n'est pas rempli d'arômes artificiels. Sinon goût d'écorce d'orange trop prononcé. Un sirop quoi.

This shouldn't be allowed on the market. By far the worst I ever tasted. Serves my right to buy without tasting nor consulting this app.

Tasted it in a hotel bar with a very limited range of rum. Would never have tried it under normal circumstances and hadn’t any higher expectations which were fulfilled. It’s a sugerbomb filled with taste of vanilla and citrus. Can’t recommend it.
