Papa’s Pilar Dark Rum is inspired by Hemingway and his thirst for adventure. Papa’s Pilar Dark Rum is made from a marriage of rums sourced from Florida, Central America and the Caribbean. It is crafted from a combination of pot and column distillations, each of which is aged for up to 24 years in a solera composed of ex-bourbon and ex-port casks. Once the rum has matured for up to 24 years, it is finished in Spanish oak casks that were previously used to mature sherry. The rum has an aroma of vanilla, cinnamon and coffee that give way to notes of earthy minerals, spices, bourbon, apricots and cherries on the palate. The finish is full-bodied and robust, with notes of red fruits mingling with hints of oak spices.
