My go to rums are usually anything from Foursquare. I have not found anything quite to my liking as a Foursquare. However, once I opened this bottle, I knew I found something new I would enjoy. The smell of this rum was not off-putting with alcohol smell or sugar. This rum is very smooth although it is barrel aged, which is hard to find. No kick to it at all. There is a hint of vanilla flavor and maybe a buttery sweet flavor followed. I'm not sure exactly what this is, but I will be buying again as it was only about $45.

By the devil's twisted tail, this be a fine rum! She smells sweet, like brown sugar, but not TOO sweet, with a hint of vanilla, oak, spices, and something roasty hidin' just below deck. As taste goes, the sweet brown sugar comes aboard with a pepperiness that builds. There be a slight burn goin' down the hatch that lingers for a while. Fine for those cold nights on deck. There be a hint of vanilla, oak, and citrus, and long after, what tastes like raisins. Raisins be nature's candy, but this be PIRATE'S candy! Aye, curse me with everlastin' tormentors if I be lyin'! This be a smooth, tasty rum. Hide this one, captains. Save it for yourself... or any ladies you might be entertainin'. Arrgh!!

After having been very disappointed with their blonde and dark rum blends, I had basically written this company off. However, the description of this Marquesas Blend really intrigued me. I saw it on the shelf as being hand selected from barrel 27 by the owner of my favorite liquor store. It was then a no brainer to buy it.

A very unique aroma greeted me when opened. Then I realize that this is from the aging in port wine and sherry casks. It was finished in whiskey casks, but I don't notice any of the heavy wood flavoring. It is truly one harmonious blend. I will start out with my rating of a high 7 and it may climb higher. This one is very unique indeed.

I saw this one and just had to have it. I love the Papas Pilar dark rums and the various special editions are simply fantastic. This one is my favorite yet. All that wonderful Papas Pilar taste, with just a bit more refinement. This one is a solid 9 EDIT: I upped the rating to 10, it's fantastic stuff and as good as anything else 10 rated. I'm savoring the bottle as it's no longer in stock locally. I'm not at all sure I can tell it's been finished in whiskey casks, I don't notice a whiskey taste to it what so ever. However, it is just more smooth than other Papas Pilar darks, and that makes it an absolute winner. The taste just lingers and there is no bad aftertaste. Delightful !!!

I have always enjoyed the Papas Pillar selection and this was no exception. One can taste the different casks of sherry and port. There was a bit of an after-burn, but nothing too over powering where you would want to mix it.

In my top 3-5 rums. It’s very similar to a sweet, sweet bourbon....flavorful with no burn on the back end.

We had a great rum tasting party last night. Just when I thought it would be hard to find more rums to taste 5 interesting bottles showed up. I saw Papa Pilar immediately dismissed it as the maple syrup, boy was I surprised this is a very good blended rum. Much more depth than he original Solara, mild sweetness medium depth and slight different finish. Still tastes artificial after second tasting. Would not purchase again.

I like the Pilar dark, but like this variety even more. Aging in whiskey barrels adds a bit of complexity. Not as mapley sweet as the dark.

Bought this on a recommendation from a friend. I am not a coffee drinker and has a coffee taste to me. I can find plenty other rums in the $50 range that I would buy before this one.
