Don Papa Rum (40% ABV)
A richly flavoursome rum from the Philippines, inspired by the story of Papa Isio, who played a big part in the late-19th century Philippine revolution. The rum itself is made using sugar cane grown on the island of Negros in the Philippines and matured in oak barrels for 7 years, after which it is blended and bottled.
Nose: Fruity notes up front, with sweet tangerines and apricots. This is followed by vanilla ice-cream, drizzled with runny toffee sauce.
Palate: Bags-full of vanilla and cinnamon. Hints of raisin, sultana and marmalade.
Finish: Medium length with punchy cinnamon.
Overall: Rather exciting stuff.
