Don Papa Rum Bottling Note

A richly flavoursome rum from the Philippines, inspired by the story of Papa Isio, who played a big part in the late-19th century Philippine revolution. The rum itself is made using sugar cane grown on the island of Negros in the Philippines and matured in oak barrels for 7 years, after which it is blended and bottled.

Nose: Fruity notes up front, with sweet tangerines and apricots. This is followed by vanilla ice-cream, drizzled with runny toffee sauce.

Palate: Bags-full of vanilla and cinnamon. Hints of raisin, sultana and marmalade.

Finish: Medium length with punchy cinnamon.

Overall: Rather exciting stuff.

Don Papa Small Batch Rum Reviews

Sweet but likeable

Considerably sweeter than I'm accustomed to, doesn't need a mixer and tastes quite pleasant over a couple of cubes of ice.
Tried it with various mixers but didn't enjoy the experience, the rum itself is just too sweet for that.
However drunk plentifully over some ice it's a lovely sweet taste which was a lovely combination after a few pints of golden ale to set the mood.

Not the greatest rum on the market bit if you like it sweet it's a great choice.

Way too sweet!

For some reasons, girls like it. But it is way too sweet. Disgusting sweet, I'd say. The star is for the bottle.

Not to my taste

I’m afraid that this rum tastes more like a distillation of an old-fashioned sweet shop than anything else. If you have a very sweet tooth this may be for you. If you don’t, it won’t be.

Excellent Rum

A delicious rum, extremely smooth, with vanilla and caramel notes. Great on the rocks, or with ginger beer and a squeeze of lime.

A smooth drinking for pleasure rum, with a lovely texture and taste ( to my pallet. )
I was brought up on rum when I was in the Royal Navy.
I was presented with your gift box for Fathers Day. the the combination of Don Papa rum, Ginger beer and lime was unusual, but very pleasant. Thank you.

Cooking rum?!?

Straight sipping, it's not a very good experience. With overwhelming notes of vanilla and blood orange, very sweet with bitter back notes of artificial sweeteners and burnt spice. Comes across as more a liqueur than a rum, might be good for baking

Vanilla essence does not a great rum make.

Cheap-tasting rum with a very unsubtle dollop of vanilla essence, and branding and pricing to try to compete with delicious Caribbean beauties like El Dorado, Diplomatico etc. Quintessential Brands Ltd at their worst - you can't turn ordinary cheap rum into great rum by adding vanilla. The product manager who did this should be sacked.

This rum is surprisingly very good. I am a big fan of CM Spiced Gold, but this one makes a good second choice. Yes it is a little sweet but the smell is pleasant and after taste good. Highly recommended.

For the sweet rum lovers out there

A lovely sipping rum, but not for those who don't like a sweeter rum with strong notes of vanilla. We go back to this rum often, but I wouldn't say it's for the rum connoisseurs out there. We usually have it in the middle of the table to sip on during a game of dominoes or Cards Against Humanity for a slower, more relaxed sip that's not too intense.
