Papa's Pilar Blonde is a blend of column-still rums from Florida, Central America, and the Caribbean. The rums used in the blend range from three to seven years. The rums were Solera-aged in used bourbon and port barrels. The rum is blended and finished in Spanish sherry casks before bottling. The unique Canteen bottle design is an homage to Ernest “Papa” Hemingway's days as ambulance driver during World War One and his coverage of Normandy in World War Two.

Tasting Notes

"Pouring the rum in the glass reveals a strong citrus-grapefruit note. As the aroma settles vanilla, almonds, and variants of citrus mingle during the fade. The first sip reveals the vanilla and grapefruit note from the aroma. Additional sips deliver notes of pineapple, dried orange peel, which transitions to earthy notes of tobacco leaf, and toasted almonds."
