A Southeast Asian Rum aged in Rye Whisky casks for a fruity, spicy dram.

Don Papa refers to Dionisio Magbuelas, or Papa Isio for short. Living during the second half of the 1800’s Papa Isio was a "Babaylan" — a healer or shaman in the local Filipino dialect — who was instrumental in the Philippine Revolution. Since the company was named after him, it will not be surprising that Don Papa Rums are made in the Philippines, or, more specifically, the island of Negros Occidental. This island has always been the sugar-cane capital of the region, and where you find sugar cane you find Rum production. Don Papa Rums are sold and distributed through their Bleeding Heart Rum Company subsidiary.

Don Papa Rums have been coming on strong — finally getting the recognition in the West that they deserve. Don Papa Rye Aged Cask Rum is the signature Don Papa Spirit, but this time it’s been aged for four years in Rye Whiskey casks. So what we have here is a well-executed Rum aged in the warm tropics of Southeast Asia among the foothills of Mount Kanlaon. What it means is that the Spirit and barrels are squeezed by the sun — maturing the Rum fast. And those Rye Whiskey casks exert influence on the dram, building spice and toffee notes upon tropical notes.

Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
