DON PAPA RUM LAUNCHES LOCALLY, BRINGING THE SPIRIT OF 'SUGARLANDIA' TO AUSTRALIA

 

Don Papa Rum, a premium aged, single-Island rum from the Philippines, has officially arrived on Australian shores.

 

Made exclusively on the Philippine Island of Negros Occidental, known locally as 'Sugarlandia', Don Papa Rum is inspired by the history and mythology of Sugarlandia- a majestic experience where everything is not always as it seems.

 

Don Papa Rum is distilled in small batches from high quality sugar cane, the rum is then aged for seven years on the foothills of Mount Kanlaon, before being blended and bottled on Negros Island. Don Papa Rum is light and fruity on the nose, smooth and delicate in the mouth with a long-textured finish, offering flavours of vanilla, honey, and candied fruits.

 

As a premium aged-rum, Don Papa is versatile, and can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a range of elevated cocktails like the Don Old Fashioned, Don Manhattan, or the Manila Mai Tai.

 

Karel (Papi) Reyes, Brand Ambassador for Don Papa says, "For a long time, local and spiced-rum has dominated the marketplace for rum in Australia, so now is the perfect opportunity to introduce consumers to the craft, quality and versality of Don Papa aged-rum."

Review: Strong scent of vanilla is present when you open the bottle of Don Papa Rum. Great start for those new to rum as it's smooth buttery and sweeter taste makes it easy to drink.  Strong taste of vanilla, subtle spices and fruity taste makes for an enjoyable run.  The packaging is very cool, so great for display.
