Don Papa Small Batch Rum is distilled from sugarcane grown on the island of Negros, one of 7,500 islands in the Philippines. 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 Rum
    Rum 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".

Tasting Notes

"Intensely sweet aromas of vanilla bean, orange peels, cooked custard and caramelized corn pudding - a nose that keeps giving and seems suited as much for pastry-making as drinking. On the palate, candied yams, creme brulée and tons of intense sweetness. It's as much like a vanilla liqueur as it is a rum."
