Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I sampled this rum as the distillery in Key West. I was never a "hard" alcohol or mixed drink person. The dark was as expected...it was alcohol -- But the Blond was like nothing I had ever had. It's not infused, but has this vanilla/maple essence and it's so smooth. It's so good, I drink it straight over ice and would never dream of putting it in a mixed drink. This rum is one of my favourite reasons for returning to Key West.
Perfectly Smooth. No harsh BleuAhhhh!!! when it hits your taste buds or after you swallow.
This is my go to rum for mixing, very flavorful with all hints that are noted about it. I love the dark and blonde both.
Cool bottle and when it comes to thick base bottles that is a good indicator of quality. Dont ask me why or how but anytime a bottle has a thick base its usually pretty good. Opening this guy up smells like maple syrup with some vanilla maybe nuts such as walnuts, no alcohol smell. In the glencarin glass it kicks up the alcohol note and then the maple syrup type smell in the background. Drinking it straight is not the smoothest but boy is it a bold white/blonde rum. This has a flavor you don't mess around with but its too much heat to be really enjoyed straight. In the diet coke, it is a wonderful rum that is on a level of nothing I had before from whites. Its deep and complex with long lasting after taste. I can say a bunch of taste notes but I much rather say if you see it buy it.
I just opened this beautiful bottle and enjoyed its almond, vanilla and lime aromas. Very drinkable, smooth, full flavored and nice finish. It reminds me of the now unavailable Orinoco Rum.
A very good rum with a nice subtle flavor. I enjoy it in Coke Zeros. My wife tries rums straight and didn't find it objectionable but did not feel she would want to drink it straight.
I never like trying a rum that has an overdone hype train, but I tried it anyway. I was actually impressed with the blonde. Nice straw color, pleasant aroma, and very smooth. Easily recommended to anyone that wants a "white" rum.
Like this taste Soft smooth.
It’s very sweet and balanced with a lingering finish of vanilla and sherried oak.
Tasty off-white rum that’s full of sweet molasses, vanilla and citrus on the nose. It’s creamy on the palate with flavors ranging from vanilla, coconut and key lime pie to almonds, pineapples and mangoes. It’s very sweet and balanced with a lingering finish of vanilla and sherried oak.
A very sweet aroma. The first flavor that comes to mind is honey. Right out of the gate. Fairly smooth going down but has a quick bite that warms you up. Overall a good rum that isn't what I'm used to. I'm partial to spiced rums but I could see myself drinking much more of this. UPDATE: After letting the rum settle over some rocks, I've changed this from a 7 to an 8. Very smooth. The bite is completely gone and the only thing that remains is a mild, silky smooth, tasty adult beverage.
Full bodied and interesting as all get out. Tons of pleasant flavors, not harsh by any means. Surprising to say the least.
One of my favorites now. Good for adding to your favorite mixer, enjoy on ice with a squeeze of lime.
It's not white, it's blonde. A great mixing rum and just a wonderful concept from bottle to name on this one.
Same bottle presentation as the other rums in the Papas Pilar line. Another sweet rum with vanilla, marshmallow, tropical fruits, nuts and some woody undertones. Makes for a nice after dinner rum sipped neat due to its sweetness.
Looking to trying the newest member of the Pilar line, the dark rebarreled.
It's 5 O' clock somewhere!
I like this rum as a mixer mostly. A smooth upfront bite, a slight hint of buttery flavor with a standard and gentle rum aftertaste.
I hate the bottle and can't stress enough that it is the worst design ever for an alcohol that is often used in small quantities for mixers. Virtually impossible to get a jigger without spilling it everywhere. Nothing a long science eyedropper couldn't fix.
Other than the bottle, I still recommend for the taste.
I have the dark so I thought I’ll try
the Blonde both very good Blonde was better than I expected lots of
vanilla,toffee lots going on here.
Good enough for sipping and great for mixing. This was a nice find.
For a clear rum this has been pretty good at mixing for my tastes. I only picked this one up because my wife does not like dark rum nor dark bourbons of any kind. She is mainly a vodka and tequila drinker. However after trying this rum in a mix she has been sold. The taste of this rum is very sweet and strong notes of vanilla. All in all a fairly decent rum for the price.
Great rum! Cashew nut, cream, and light vanilla and tropical fruit notes. I drink it on the rocks and go through a bottle fast because it's so easy to drink!
Its tasty and sweet, but it can not compete with the dark. But I love the design of the bottle
A step above most light rums, this one won't leave you disappointed.
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.
For being a 3 year rum i am very pleased. Great nose, mouth and maple/butterscotch finish. I have all the other Papas and this one for the money is worth its cost. You gotta try the Papa's that has been finished then refinished for an additional 6 months in whiskey barrels..
I found this to be a good rum, but like the Papas Dark and the Zaya, it's a little heavy on the added flavoring. This has a fair amount of vanilla, along with lime, almond, and oak. It's quite similar to the Papas Dark, but uses citrus rather than maple, and is 42%abv rather than 43% (I could actually notice the difference). Certainly a good rum, but I prefer the maple to the citrus.
