That's some good stuff
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.
I got all three dark rums from Pilar to try them side by side. I had tried two of the three previously. They're all exceptional. The Sherry finished rum is the darkest of the three.
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.
Just got this bottle at Total Wine. Finished in Bourbon, Port, and Sherry Casks. It is the 24th Solera profile from 2017.
For a sweeter rum pleasing overall but also confused overall. The nose is brown sugar, maple, and a hint of sherry and even less of port. Vanilla on the backside dominates. It does have a slightly off putting bitter note that lingers. Could be the bourbon cask note, not sure. It is fine for sipping but it might be better with a cigar or with something else to complement it. It is the best Pilar I have tasted so far.
