Don Papa Small Batch Rum
Don Papa Rum or the The Don, was inspired by the story of one of the unsung heroes of the Philippine revolution: Dionisio Magbuelas, better known locally as "Papa" Isio. Initially a foreman at a sugar plantation, Papa Isio -- healer, shaman, seer, rebel, and leader of a group of babaylanes -- played a key role during the late 19th-century Philippine Revolution. Papa Isio's spirit and leadership played a critical part in freeing Negros from Spanish rule, ultimately leading to independence for his beloved country.
Don Papa Rum embodies Papa Isio's spirit of independence, irreverence and sense of justice. Created in 2011 and now ready for consumption in 2012,
Don Papa is a premium aged small batch rum from the isle of Negros Occidental, the Philippines. Distilled from some of the finest sugar cane in the world, Don Papa is first aged 7 years in oak barrels in the foothills of Mount Kanlaon before being blended to perfection.
Negros Occidental is and has always been the sugar capital of the Philippines. Due to the perfect combination of climate, geography and the rich volcanic soil on the island, Negros is ideally suited for sugar cane production.
Light and fruity on the nose whilst smooth and delicate on the palate, the light amber colored Don Papa has a long, rich-textured finish and offers flavors of vanilla, honey and candied fruits.
