Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I've tried it on Rum Festival 2017 in Berlin. Better than the "standard" Don Pappa - still sweet (less than the standard) and straight forward aroma.
Old version of the classic Don Papa. If you like the classic, you will appreciate all the more the 10 years.
What a disappointment. For the huge price tag, the only great thing about this is the fancy looking bottle. The rum itself is below-average, not terrible, but nothing to write home about either. I won't be buying another bottle that's for sure.
Smells and tastes like kids cough syrup with a very unpleasant artificial flavoring. Very intense fruit flavour and smell. Like fruit juice
It’s strong 43%, sweet and lot of vanilla taste. You try It, than You think if You like It, and You try It again, again...;)
Krásná vůně po portském, velice zajímavá chuť, celkem dost sladká, nakonec lehce štiplavý alkohol... Nesrovnatelně lepší, než "obyčejný žlutý sedmiletý" - rozhodně stojí za vyzkoušení...
Ik vind hem persoonlijk iets minder dan de small batch versie maar ook deze is zeer goed.
Nice and warm. Dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla. A little bit too sweet. Hints of Raisins and cedar.
Un nez très caramélisé, une bouche complexe et structuré, un joli rhum
I was really interested in trying this rum because of the wide range of ratings for it. It seems to be a love it or hate it rum. Most people that don't like it said it is too sweet, but I like sweet rums. And I really like this!
It has a lot going on. It kind of reminds me of the A.H. Riise Non Plus Ultra Very Rare Rum (though I slightly prefer that one).
Smells of sweet caramel, molasses, orange, spice, bubblegum, and vanilla. Taste also includes chocolate and candied fruits. It's a really nice rum to me. A thumbs up for sure!
Sehr aromatischer im Abgang weicher Rum. Perfekt zu genießen in einer geselligen Runde mit Freunden,
aber Achtung macht süchtig.
This is the best sweet rum that I have ever tasted. Purists will probably not like it, but for me it is simply amazing.
Tried the Don Papa's 10 year in its natural habitat, in Manila the Philippines. Bottle looks fancy and the color of the liquid is deep and dark, but this is no rum. It smells and tastes like kids cough syrup with a very unpleasant artificial flavoring. Only very marginally smoother than the Don Papa's Small Batch. Trust me after 400 real dark rums later, you want to skip this one.
The top 10 worst rums I have ever tried:
1. Barbancourt 4y / 8y / 15y
2. Bounty Dark Rum from Fiji
3. Stroh 40 / 80
4. Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
5. Villa Rica 23y
6. Mocambo 15y / 20y
7. Captain Morgan different variations
8. Don Papa 10y / 15y
9. Bacardi flavored "rums", all of them
10. Kraken rums
After having tasted the classic Don Papa, this one was the next step to rum discovering. It is definitely better than the classic one, much more character, less sugared and more tasty, but still accessible. However, it does not worth its price. For the same amount, other rum with higher quality Can be discovered.
Ce rhum est une plaisanterie ! On dirait un distillat de caramel aromatisé à la vanille industrielle. Déstructuré, court en bouche (et heureusement), alcoolisé et trop sucré, certains aiment ça, c'est leur droit. Je mets 3 points pour le bel emballage.
I saw this rum at my local store and I must say the bottle design is quiet an eye catcher. But don't judge a book by its cover.
First time I tried it, the aroma really surprised me. It reminds me of an bubble gum ice cream I liked as a child. There are notes of orange and sticky sweetness.
On the palate you have nice fruity notes but not quite as complex as you expect from the aroma. Behind the sweet beginning there are some unpleasant alcoholic notes and the finish is not very long.
Ok - that's my favourite I ever tried.
Very dark color, great aroma like Don Papa, smooth and one of best design of bottle.
If you like sweet rum....must to try!
Mnam, I really like it. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I like this rum. It sweet for a rum, one of the most sweet rums i ever tasted. It a hood 7.
This is worth having a taste if you are in Philippines. Good balance, sweet, smooth finish!
It's better than the 8 year, but not a top notch sipping rum
I can't put my finger on this rum. It smells really strange. Tried it at a rumfestival in Amsterdam. Just not my kind of rum.
Som sin lillebror en meget sød duft med bunker af frugtnoter. Smagen har mest orange i starten men bliver sødere og sødere mod vanilje. Har svært ved heltcat se den som rom. Men fint smager den
Rum som kupil s ocakavanim exkluzivnej chuti,no prislo sklamanie. Rum je sladky,ale zvlastny,neviem ho zaradit,prist na to co tym vyrobca myslel. Chuti ako Bentiana s vodkou.
