Tasty, but not quite great
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!
The rum has a ton of flavor, mostly sweet - vanilla, honey, butterscotch, making it completely unsuitable for the the ultimate iconic reference - the Hemingway Daiquiri. I picked it up only because someone had suggested the combination. I tried it. In a word - NO! I'll have to experiment, because at the moment I'm not sure what to do with it. Once I've figured that out, I may bump the review up a notch.
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 think this could have been a really good spirit but they doubled down on the vanilla and sugar. Has nice mallow-y notes and the oak is and sumptuous and inviting, but the overall effect is cloying. I would generally pass.
Tried at a Cuban restaurant, mixed with Coke. It paired well with dinner, but then there are few rums that don't. Enjoyed the vanilla flavor.
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.
