15th October will start worldwide sell new limited edition of Don Papa rum. We saw it at Berlin Rumfest, when we taste a little bit – so here is the summary.
40% blend rums between 4 and 12 years, distilled from sugar cane from Negros Island and aged in ex-bourboun american oak casks. Aging also involves 3 years in 2 different types spanish casks: oloroso Sherry and Andalusian Vino de Naranja (orange wine).
The storry behind this rum is traderoute Manila – Acapulco, which connects Spain with Philipines (throughMexico)
“Inspired by the oranges of Seville, our latest offering is a unique and wonderful blend of Sherry, oranges and Filipino rum. Bursting with flavours of fragrant citrus, salted caramel and a subtle hint of oak and with a smooth, long and tangy finish, this premium unfiltered rum is best enjoyed neat as a smooth and refreshing late summer and autumnal sipper.”Matthias Cadeac D’Arbaud, globální brand ambassador Don Papa
By my opinion rum si not so sweet like MassKara or Don Papa 7y. It seems not very interesting, like “not-finished” rum. Something between Sherry Cask and Rare Cask with flavour of oranges.
Price should be around £70 (US$86) for 700 ml bottle.
