A premium, single-island rum from the Philippines, Don Papa is created on the foothills of the active volcano Mt. Kanlaon where the finest sugarcane is milled to create sweet, rich black gold molasses. After harvest, Don Papa is blended to perfection before coming together in an alchemy of magic in its bottle.
Light and fruity on the nose. Smooth and delicate on the palate with a long textured finish. Has notes of vanilla, honey, and candied fruit.

Not really a rum person but just bought this out of curiosity. It's really good. Great for those days when you just want to chill and relax.
The Delivery time is top notch. This is probably the fastest online store i have ever shopped on. As a busy professional who seldom has time to shop in-store, this is a God send. The prices are fair and the products had no damage whatsoever. However, the only setback i experienced was that most of the goods i wanted to buy (e.g. Don Papa 1.5ml, Johnnie Walker pocket scotch, etc.) are ALWAYS out of stock. Especially the ones that came with freebies like drinking glass, playing cards, etc. Hopefully, this can be remedied in the future. Overall, i am satisfied with the service and i look forward to shop again in the future.
I ordered the small size of Don Papa because I was very curious with this particular rum. But since I’m not really into hard drinks I can’t drink this straight. I got hook adding Don Papa to my coffee. Really great pair. And the smell of the rum is delicious.
It's very sweet, you can tell as much just from taking a whiff of it after uncapping the cork, which is why I think it would be good for mixing and cocktails. I wouldn't really advise taking this neat though unless you REALLY like sweet alcohol.
