Not to buy again. Not my cup of coffee. Too much cherry

A very well balanced room. I believe is the best blended. Long finish, deep taste. Not very sweet. Tastes of sherry, honey, sherry's wooden barrel and carnation. Perfect choice for that amount of money

In the glass a reddish amber color. The smell is intoxicating on the nose. Sweet fruit. Candyish . Very good flavor. Butterscotch , vanilla , toffee, chocolate and cherry. Long sherry finish. Coats the tongue. A winner .

A blend of Virgin Islands rums, where the oldest component is 24 years old, at 43% strength in bottle. Pilar was Ernest Hemingway's yacht, which he sailed in the Caribbean.

The rum was aged in several types of cask: bourbon, port and sherry Oloroso wine.

Bottle: Military canteen
Colour: Mahogany
Nose: Sweet and very pleasant. It smells of caramel, honey, vanilla, sherry wine and raisins.
Taste: A little alcoholic at first. It is sweet, but not too much. In the taste you can identify wood, spices (pepper, nutmeg), caramel and again sherry. At the end it turns into a slight bitterness.
Finish: Long

Summary: A very good sweet rum that does not lack strength. I definitely recommend to taste it.

Overall rating: 8.5 out of 10

A dos maderas but leaning more woody and less sweet, peppery finish, slight burn, can definitely taste the sherry

This one was available on my local liquor store shelf, and as cheap as I could find anywhere ($42), so I dove right in.

I haven't had the regular Papa's Pilar Dark, but this one is a real treat. It's pretty sweet, but has a depth and complexity of flavor that prevents it from becoming cloying. A little woody, lightly spicy, and with a slight, almost vinegary "twang" that sits well in my mouth, this blend's main flavor is maple, nuts, and dark fruit. Altogether, this makes for a decadent, desserty flavor that's a real treat after meals, with a smoke, or frankly anytime at all.

Nicely done! You get a hint of the sweetness on the nose, sweet taste but not as much of the Sherry in the flavor as I thought. Very smooth with a slight lingering taste, nothing on the back end. Definitely one I can do over and over

Very unique rum. Can definitely taste the sherry cast influence. Delicious dark, almost burnt caramel flavor profile with a hint of slight smokiness to it. Wonder vanilla finish lingers pretty long. Very smooth with a very slight bit of heat to it. I drink this one neat. Very lovely rum. Will definitely buy again.

Normally, I like to try a new rum by sipping it straight, and then trying it in a daiquiri and then a rum old fashioned. No doubt, this makes a fine daiquiri and a tasty old fashioned, but really shines straight up. Easily my favorite rum so far.

Layers of caramel, butterscotch, with a perfect bite. Amazing. Tops my list.
