Papa’s Pilar
Dark Rum

Category: Dark Rum

Date Tasted:
Country: Dominican Republic
Alcohol: 43%
Amber color. Nutty aromas and flavors of walnut fudge, chocolate-covered cherries, cola, and coffee yogurt with an oily, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, compelling, medium-long finish with notes of chocolate malt milkshake, flamed orange peel, and creme brulee finish. An outgoing rum that will be a nice sweet sipper or creative cocktail base.

Dark Rums are traditionally full-bodied, rich, caramel-dominated Rums. The best are produced mostly from pot stills and frequently aged in oak casks for extended periods. The richest of these Rums are consumed straight up.
