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!
This is a dark amber rum. It's very vanilla - ish but not overpowering. It also has a nice caramel and molasses flavor. Spicy.
Färgen på denna är något mörkare än de andra två. Mörkare med en röd ton. Doften på denna är också annorlunda än den första. Jag känner torkad frukt, något stickig men behaglig sherry, efter en stund i glaset känner jag även nötter. Smaken känner jag nötter, vanilj och fatig
relativt torr sherry. Ek. Bäst av de tre helt klart, denna får ett betyg mellan 7 och 8.
If you can get your hands on this, do so. The price point is incredibly good and the rum is superior. Papa's is one of my favorites and this specialty item is a cut above. The aging in Sherry casks creates more complexity and a wonderful nose.
I enjoy the mild vanilla flavors. Both the dark and the sherry cask finished are favorites of mine. Easy and extremely pleasant to sip straight up. Because it's a flavored rum, I can not rate it a 9 or 10, but it's good enough to be way up there. I reserve those ratings for straight up rums that are unflavored. Really, it's such a pleasant drink, it's a solid 8.
Received this bottle as a tip from my client, I put this in the class of sweet sippers like Diplimatico, Plantation 20 or El Dorado 12. I tried it neat and with an ice cube and preferred it with ice, seemed more fruity and really opened up the sherry cask flavors.
Had to wrangle the bottle to pour. Beautiful rich color.Very lovely on the nose. 86 proof. No burn. Flavor of burnt sugar, but not cloyingly sweet. Flavor lingers nicely.
Edit: not sure if I like the sherry baby.
I loved the Pillar Dark, still have not tried the blonde although it’s half the price of the darks. I may have picked this one up simply for the red cap on the bottle, was it with the extra 6 bucks ? ¡I say yes !
This one seems a bit smoother than the previous which d finitely has a strong bourbon barrel flavor. Still starts with a burn and finishes with a slight citrus sort of a brandy flavor. I might like this one better just because it doesn’t have so much of a corn liquor accent.
Nice aroma of sweet caramel, vanilla and almond. Very delicious sipper where all these flavors come out along with a little nuttiness.
