It's Not the Size of the Boat. It's the Freedom of the Spirit.
If you're not new here, you're familiar with our feelings for 'Papa' Hemingway and a good Rum. This tipple was crafted to embottle the vigorous lust for life of the literary, travel, (and turn-up) icon. It's even co-named after the writer's legendary boat - Pilar.
A rare piece of good news from Florida, Key West actually, comes in the form of a first-ever to-be brand's annual iteration in commemoration of Ernest's extraordinary life. (We'd like to believe, by now, we're on the first-name-basis with 'the goat').
This Dark Rum is a double-solera finished knock-out with a bold flavor. The Rye Whiskey barrels and Amontillado Sherry casks add complexity to the blend of already solera-aged Rums from Panama, Barbados, Florida, Venezuela, and the Dominican Republic. The boasty juice of 43% ABV comes in a bad-a$$ decanter wrapped in leather. A nifty collector's find - we might add, but they had us at Hemingway.
Appearance / Color
Dark amber color.
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is sweet but spicy with hints of chocolate and vanilla.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
It hits the palate with hints of vanilla first, but the chocolate lasts.
The finish is a touch oaky, but the spice is prominent.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Papa's Pilar Legacy Edition 2021 and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
