Nice sweet rum to start exploring the world of rum. Sweet, lots of vanilla and citrus.

Une superbe couleur.
Une bouteille au look très sympa, ya pas à dire...
Un nez sympa sans plus.
Une bouche agréable : très (trop?) vanillé, caramélisé. Une texture liquoreuse qui me fait dire qu il ne faut pas en boire des litres.
Peu de longueur en bouche...
En fait il est tellement sucré ce rhum que ça en devient presque ecoeurant. La magie de la chimie...on ne peut que supposer que les fûts de vieillissement ont été "travaillé" (vanille, caramel, miel...)
Au prix où il est vendu, on peux trouver beaucoup mieux même si ce Don Papa reste tout de même un produit très agréable à déguster...en petit quantité!

I must say that I love the bottle. This rum is so sweet, with a high caramel aftertaste. This is a kind of rum for people who like sweet drinks. Because of his sweetness, it loses his rum flavor.
I bought also the 10 years edition, which has a more complex flavor. But still very sweet....
Nice to have in my collection, my friends will love this bootle. But not a rum for a more experienced rum taster.

I can't say much about it. For me it's just undrinkable. Maybe it's because I expected rum when I tasted it.

If you like your candy at 40% alcohol, this might be for you. To me it is way too sweet. It is truly unique. Just not in a good way.

This rum is great! one of the best i have ever tried. Sweet and good spices. might be sweet for some people, but the mix is fantastic.

Déjà presque tout le monde est d'accord : beau packaging, belle bouteille et belle étiquette. Mais est ce suffisant ? Clairement non. Il se boit assez facilement, il n'est pas mauvais, mais faut pas en abuser sinon ilnpeit paraître ecoeurant tant son goût est sucré et fruité.

Now this is something very specific, that you either love or hate. It has a distinct taste of vanilla, with a clear hint of children's toothpaste/cough syrup and caramel. It is quite weird, but has found a place in my heart. I only wish the aftertaste could.. yeah, at all be there. Hopefully the newly released 10 year old big brother will deliver on this.

The label is among the best looking in the market today, with some intense details (look up all the animals!) from the same design company that did The Kraken bottle and label.

This isnt rum. This is a rum based vanilla drink. Crap on the rocks but i reckon a decent cocktail ingredient. Decent for a winter drink added to strong black coffee.

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)
