Shawn,
Smoothest rum I've ever had. Nice caramel taste to it. Perfect for straight sippin' or a mixed beverage at the end of a long day. Definitely will be a staple in my home bar. If I can keep any of it in stock!
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Jonathan,
Very sweet. Thick on the palate to the point of being almost sticky and cloying. Lingering taste that is reminiscent of maple. Smooth enough to sip, but I can't get past the sweetness and that is said as a fan of Diplomatico and similar style rums.

Anthony,
Love this rum, it has layers of complexity, and deep flavors with a bright finish that makes you feel like being under a palm tree with your toes in the sand.

Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Shaun,
Great rum. Smooth and flavorful. Definitely want to drink this one neat. If you can find the Sherry Cask finish, grab it. It’s one of my favorites.

George,
Had this for the first time at their tasting tour in Key West. Awesome!!! They mixed the dark with the blond and it was even smother. I'm now on a quest for the dark aged in bourbon barrels which came out last year. You can't go wrong with Papa's!!!

Nathan,
I've been drinking Papa's for a few years. Generally, smooth and buttery/sweet. But, a few bottles have come in a bit sweeter. Great sipping rum for the summer months!
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Jonathan,
Not a bad rum, but it can be a bit too sweet. Reminds me a lot of maple syrup.

Joe,
Exceeded my expectations for a Rum. 24yr old with unique character, flavor, and taste. The only way to drink this one is neat!! AAAAARRRRRGGGGGG
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Richard,
Very sweet, seems like it was back-sweetened. Otherwise had a good flavor, just hard to get past the sweetness. Would be good in a mix.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Bruce,
Very sweet. It's well balanced but just overly sweet. I do, however, enjoy a little on the rocks. I just thought it would have more depth with "some" sweetness
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Damien,
Amazing product! Great buttery flavor with a smooth finish
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum

Sweeter than it is spicy, very mellow and smooth. Excellent sipping drink
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum

Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Warren,
Great rum with full bodied flavor that’s a great addition to any home bar or for general sipping when you need a taste of something special. I picked up my first bottle in Key West at the distillery. If you ever visit the Keys, make sure you make time to visit and take the tour. This purchase is a steal for any rum enthusiast. Enjoy!

Tyrone,
First, I am a scotch drinker by preference. That said, I will sample most any adult beverage. While on vacation in Key West FL I was offered a tour of Papa's Pilar Rum Distillery. I am glad I accepted the offer. I now know a little more about the history of rum in this country and I know how good a fine rum can taste. This rum is very sweet, but less so than Papa's dark rum. It is better in mixed drinks. Not worth drinking on its own.

I am glad I accepted the offer. I now know a little more about the history of rum in this country and I know how good a fine rum can taste. This rum drink well neat, it is 86 proof but the taste is mild and sweet. I get a hint of vanilla, sugar cookie, wood, and rum raisin ice cream.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Troy,
Avoided because I thought it was a gimmick. Then I tried it. This is a great, well-rounded rum good either on it's own or mixed. Likely to become my go-to rum at home. Gimmick or not, this is a winner.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Ariella,
I really enjoyed this rum, it smelled sweet and had some sweetness in the taste. To be honest I'm new to this; so vague details is all I got. Plus, I haven't really tasted enough of others to rate this rum properly, however saying all that, in this current time and place I stand by my rating.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Danny,
Sweet with strong notes of caramel/butterscotch.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Henry,
I’m normally more of a Tennessee whiskey and Kentucky bourbon drinker, but this rum was on the tasting bar at my favorite liquor store, so I thought, “Why not?“ I must say, I was blown away! It is absolutely exquisite, quite sweet with notes of brown sugar, caramel, spice, and vanilla.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Michael,
Slightly overly sweet. Good start but the sweet maple syrup flavors are a bit too strong, effecting the finish. I don't mix my drinks so this will likely stay in the bar for visitors with a taste for sweet dark rums.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Jarred,
sweet, smooth, slightly buttery. tastes very similar to the Kirk & Sweeney 18 yr rum
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum
Howard,
Relatively sweet. Smooth. A bit of a maple syrup flavor. Nice aftertaste. Seems like they might be going for a cute, gimicky rum using the Florida/Caribbean/Hemmingway bit. Expensive for a blended rum in my opinion. Others for the price that I like better; Afrohead, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, el Dorado 15 Year Kirk and Sweeney 23 year.
Papa's Pilar Dark Rum

Not that smooth at all. At this price point, better bet is Kirk and Sweeney 23 YR or El Dorado 12 YR
