Very banana. Sweet. Smooth sipper. Found at $27. Great for that price.

I had a choice of standard rum and this brand. I chose this brand. Normally I prefer the dark, but this is ok. Most restaurants and bars don’t carry this but I did find it at a new restaurant then they decided to get rid of it for the simple tasteless rums. When in doubt, try it.

It taste richer than it should meaning to many additives better than some gold's but not one of the best.

After my awful experience with Papa's Pilar Dark, I almost gave up on this company. However, after reading reviews from those who tried this Blonde as well as the Dark, I saw how mixed the opinions were on these very unique rums. I had no choice except to plunk down $27 for my bottle to form my own opinion.

The aroma is citrus and anise, but I tasted no anise on the palate, thank goodness. As a matter of fact, I tasted very little of anything on the palate, but going down the pipe is where those awful bitter Papa's Pilar tastes comes in from final aging in Spanish sherry casks. This after taste will make sure that it deserves no better than a 6 in my rating. I also seriously doubt that I will slowly learn to hate this one as I did with it's older Dark brother. I could come to love it, but I seriously doubt it.

This company also needs to learn a thing or two about taste and should consider hiring someone with good taste buds.The one that chooses the taste for their rums should clearly be fired since they have very poor judgement when it comes to rum. When a white rum is much better than their dark rum, this is a sure sign of trouble within. However, this stuff comes with a very nasty hangover the next day, so I dock it one point and won't buy any more from this company until they change tasters.

A perfect light rum for my Mai Tai.
And we all know.... "Mai Tai - roa ae" "Out of this world - the best."

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.

This rum has fake maple, vanilla, and other sweet artificial flavors.

I know many people rate this as better than Papa's Pilar dark. I feel it's too harsh to be a sipping rum. So I rated it a 5. In fact, there really is nothing exceptional about it.

Lot of sugar and Vanilla this. Rum bottlers not distillers. Nice idea. Good marketing but the juice - ehh
Tried with Coke sweet...
