Ce duo est vraiment très bon. Un odeur mélanger de cassonade et de caramel. Le 7 est moins sucré et plus fruité. Le 24 est caramélisé et épicé, la finale est longue et complexe. Je recommande a tous, merci à ma sœur.

Very nice. I smell butterscotch and vanilla. Excellent sipping rum.

If you like sweet, which I do, you’re much better offer with Diplomatico RE

Beautiful packaging and medium amber color preludes an awesome nose of maple sugar and molasses, followed by a jammy sweet mouthfeel, and finishing like a rich dessert

Sweet, good, with a lot of coffee flavor and some chocolate. Wonderful to sit and sip on.

Most everyone has already stated the obvious about the strong maple, and vanilla flavors, but the taste, to me, is different. Definitely caramel and molasses, and not to strong of an alcohol burn considering it's 43%. Definitely a repeat though!

Hard to go wrong with this rum, as good or better than many at 2-3 times the price. Tried it at a sampling and had to buy the bottle. Rich in maple with great accents both in aroma and taste. Nothing wrong with this rum except I cannot get it in Oklahoma, have to order it.

Fantastic rum if you like really sweet rum. Lots of maple, and some vanilla and spices. I drink it on the rocks. I think it cools down the maple a little bit. Drink it neat, and the maple becomes a little overpowering. Comes in a very handsome bottle and being named after Hemingway’s boat is a great conversation piece.

This is the best run I’ve ever had. I love the maple butter flavor. Dark mixed with light is super smooth to sip. Love it!

There definitely seems to be some spices and added flavors going on here. I’d be willing to bet on it. It’s very aromatic and instantly reminded me of a freshly baked pan of sticky buns.
In the mouth, initial sweetness with cinnamon, cardamom, maple, vanilla, molasses, burnt sugar and fruity notes like plums and dates flowing in.The heavily caramelized sugar reminds me of Cracker Jacks with hints of walnuts or other hard-crack nuts. A slight bitter-sweet undertone, with a delayed arrival, I suspected to be from barrel char but as the development continued, I believe it’s from something more adjunct. Then bam! ROOT BEER soda. Could I be crazy? Well, I had just made a batch of root beer sherbet the week prior so, the flavor was fresh in my mind. I went to my freezer, spoon in hand, for a quick sampling. Yep. Very similar notes. I’ve heard others refer to Dr. Pepper in their reviews but for me, it’s more like Root Beer.
Pilar Dark is complex and has various stages of arrival and development with a nice long finish and isn’t terribly thick or syrupy. I think if this rum wasn’t “slightly sweet”, it wouldn’t taste quite right with all that’s going on. I think the sweetness ties it all together. I like this rum but have doubts that is truly, just a an aged rum. The bottle presentation is nice to look at but completely impractical and rather a PITA to pour from.

This was recommended to me by a bartender and I was skeptical but ended up really enjoying it.
