This beautifully balanced, fragrant rum is fully matured in American rye casks, bringing an additional beguiling intensity to its flavour. Distinct, with a spicy, peppery flavour, combined with a luscious, velvety smooth sweet complexity, it showcases a completely different side to Don Papa.
Color: Amber, golden straw
Nose: Fruity with hints of rye spices
Mouth: Rich, dry. velvety
Finish: Bright, long, and delicate.
Tried this one for a change from the classic one (7y, 10y, Masskara...) and it is definitely very different. If you like the smooth and sweet taste from the regular DP, you won't really find it here. The American rye cask makes it more like a whisky rather than a sweet DP. Some pepper/spicy flavors also. Overall, a nice discovery, but I prefer the other bottles, especially the 10y.
