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.
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!
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.
Doesn't have the vanilla nose from the 7 year, stronger on spicy notes with cinnamon standing out. Goes down smoother than the former but not that great tasting either.
Well just returned from the Philippines and cracked this open... Better than Don Papa Small Batch. Very dark in color. Really reminds me of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. I will compare the two side by side in the near future. El Dorado 12 was my go to rum, and drinking this side by side, Don Papa is much smoother. Like I said reminds me a lot of Diplomatico. Going to have to try and save this one as I doubt I'll ever find it again.
klasicky don papa mi docela chutna, i kdyz je to mainstream rum. Tady jsem mel docela velka ocekavani, ma nadhernou barvu, vodni uslechtileji, ale jinak zadny zazrak, skoro bych si radeji dal ten 7-lety
De naam Don Papa brengt meteen heel wat (hoge) verwachtingen met zich mee! De fles, mooi verpakt in een koker verzegelt met kurk, staat al een tijdje op de wishlist en staat mooi te pronken in de rumkast. Veel uitstraling en de smaak stelt helemaal niet teleur! De donkerbruine kleur past perfect bij de caramel en vanillesmaken die rijkelijk aanwezig zijn. Topfles!
Very smooth and sweet rum, nice dark color, fruity, but not so much as younger brother (Don Papa 7-YO).
Orange, caramel, vanilla. Nice bottle.
If you have tasted the small batch, this one is very close in taste. Still overly sugared, still that synthetic taste, still fruty just a bit more balanced and the taste lasts longer. Newcomers to rum will like the taste, but the taste still tastes 'fabricated'. It tastes more like medicin the rum. The fruty smooth part is good, they just went to far with all the rest. Maybe one for the lady's who love the sweeter rums
Tasted a bit unusual.. has a strong taste of some sort of berry, not really sure but reminded me of junipers if i remember junipers correctly.. Interesting, not regreting that i tried it, but cannot say i enjoyed it a lot
