Don Papa Rum
Don Papa // Philippines
Don Papa Rum is distilled from sugarcane grown on the island of Negros, one of 7,500 islands in the Philippines. The brand was created in 2011 by a former Rémy Cointreau exec after a visit to the said island rich with sugarcane, beaches, and scenery. The area's tropical climate also makes it ideal for aging. In the volcanic foothills of Mount Kanlaon, this rum matures for up to 7 years in barrels made from American oak before it is blended for bottling. Look closely on the label (thoughtfully designed in New York) and you'll find animals native to the country like the gecko and tarsier. Available in the US beginning May 2017.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
