That's some good stuff
The standard Pilar is very sweet. This one is more balanced with nods to all of its brothers best attributes. Vanilla and almond. If you see it, buy it. You won’t be disappointed!
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.
I’ve tried all the Papa Pilar rums., I have to say I like them all. However, I hadn’t given the Sherry cask 24 year a fair test. I had thought it was my least favorite of the Pilar runs, but I discovered my mistake. I decided to drink this rum neat instead of with rocks. I discovered I had destroyed the great taste of this rum by diluting it with ice. Try it neat and enjoy the great flavors this rum delivers. There is a nice smooth “burn” that lingers. Really enjoyable.
A surprise ... I expected too sweet, but was actually just right. Added a single ice cube to bring out the flavours (a good amount of vanilla). Very drinkable!
I spent a few dollars more for the barrel select. This is another rum that I felt dirty for liking. I know it’s got added sugar and must be a mix of ages, but as someone who likes sherry; I tasted it upfront. It was sweet going down without a lot of bite. I want to compare it to their regular dark rum. So if you don’t mind breaking with tradition and like a sweeter rum or as a gift for a less discerning rum drinker- give it a go.
Bon rhum., mais un peu brut de décoffrage. Je le trouve un peu abrasif. Toutefois, il a son intérêt et arbore une bouteille originale.
À essayer et le rapport qualité prix reste bon. C est pour moi la meilleure bouteille de la marque. Tbien pour leurs débuts même s il faudra gagner en finesse.
Having enjoyed Marquesa blend last week I was expecting something quite special. Instead I found this blend to be similar to the original with a slight hint of the finishing cask. Not enough difference to mask the sweet caramel flavor of the 24 dark that I am not a fan of.
Papas Pilar adds a hint of additional complexity with this sherry finished beauty. A Wonderful sipper. Their whole line is strong especially considering the price point and what it compares to and competes with across the board.
