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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

User Reviews of the Don Papa Small Batch Rum

Absolute sham

This stuff is a sham. Marketed as "Made in the foothills of Mount Kanlaon". There is absolutely no distillery anywhere near the foothills of Mt. Kanlaon. Age statement is an absolute joke as well, considering the distillery hasn't existed long enough to be releasing rum of the ages that they state. The entire rum industry desperately needs a shakeup and these people are a shining example of why. Vote with your pocket - avoid this sweetened liqueur.

Fruity, sweet

Absolutely refreshing. Strong vanilla and molasses palate.

Is it rum?

Don Papa, founded in 2011, produced first rum in 2012... So... How can it be 7 years old?
No mentioning of distillery...
No address can be found for distillery...
I am residing for 3 years in Philippines and have been looking into this product for a while. I have been trying to figure out where they actually make it but it stays a mistery.
While it is very drinkable it is full of additives. They are marketing this product very well but it is not an artisanal produced authentic rum. It's a commercial product meant for profits. Here in Philippines it's normal to lie to consumers. There is no control on most things and people's access to information is limited.
Should be labeled a spiced rum maybe, or spiced liquor would be even more correct.

Drinks very smooth, great for certain coctails. Alot of cinamon and caramel tints. Alot of sugar.
I can appreciate this drink although I cannot appreciate their marketing.

This not rum, this is liquid sugar with additive.
A rum to avoid! you can get a better rum for less money and a authentic taste

Best rum I've ever tasted

I'm not the biggest rum fan but after tasting this I'm a convert! Perfect for long winter evenings

Yum Yum!

I bought this rum after tasting it in a wine shop. It's really smooth and easy to drink. It's a flavourful spiced rum but tastes more 'grown-up' then the regular Morgans spiced rum that most are used too. Really tasty and lovely straight-up with a bit of ice! Good value.
