A great deal of vanilla and sugar. A short aftertaste with that bourbon touch.
Not bad at all.

I’m glad to see that Papa Pilar brand is experimenting with extra aging like Ron Abuelo, Plantation, Foursquare and others. I think they are starting with the original dark Solara pancake syrup and the additional aging help. Still not a huge fan but great improvement.

Loads of vanilla, brown sugar, and with a slight coconut finish.
Great rum !

Similar with sherry finish just bit more body and touch less sweet-fruit-brandy... I would compared it somewhat with a regular Zacapa 23 more fruity version. In this price range is a good choice.

The regular version of this rum is stellar, but to finish it in bourbon barrels?......outstanding. This is great with cigars, mid day sipping, and as a dessert rum.

I was a bit afraid of Bourbon aging. But it is a smooth rum with decent amount of sweetness. Smell- vanilla, but flabby in general. Short aftertaste.
But I like this rum and look for another bottle for my collection.

I stumbled on the bourbon barreled store pick Papas Pilar at a liquor store in Key West, just as the pandemic was beginning. I didn’t get to taste it until I got home but once I did, I was bummed that I hadn’t bought more than one bottle! Great for sipping, smooth, vanilla and brown sugar, with a nice boozy note. Both my wife and I loved it and ended up battling for the last sips. Searched for more online and finally found more of this limited version and bought several to last into the next year. Grab it if you find it!

Bourbon fans will love this. I have to confess, bourbon is NOT my favorite. I am a Scotch drinker. But this damn rum is unbelievable. Finally a good use for bourbon! Seriously, a really nice expression here. This is smooth, Smokey and complex. The nose is fabulous. The bourbon really adds big time. It isn’t in the background. This rum is full of bourbon notes. Not sweet. Not too strong. A Smooth, sipper. Memorable. Nice Smokey finish. This reflects art in distilling throughout. 9.5 for sure.
