Tasty, but not quite great
The rum is intensively dark and quite dense. Nose dominated by cherry, unfortunately the aroma of alcohol is pronounced. At first taste, one can sense its spiciness mixed with taste of sweet cherry. The taste of cherry and sweet berries it so overwhelming, it is difficult to distinguish anything else. The sweetness and spiciness remain in mouth for a while. The overall experience is far under expectations for a 10years old rum. It seems the spices are added in agricole style and the natural origin of the deep colour is also questionable, as it is not followed by a full-bodied taste of a real matured rum.
The same thing as regular one, although 3 times more expensive. Well what is the definition of insanity? It is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different result.
For the money, I was expecting to be blown away considering how much I like the 7 year. Much darker than the regular Don Papa, it’s rich, sweet and very drinkable, but for the money I’d buy something else next time. Wish I’d known about this site before buying as there are many others I’d like to add to my collection.
Love this rum! Cinnamon, orange peel and smoke flavours with a hint of honey . I’m trying to savour this rum for a long time, until my friend goes back for some more. Nicely done Don Papa!
