About Don Papa Rum

Distilled from some of the finest sugar cane in the world, Don Papa is aged up to 7 years in oak barrels in the foothills of Mount Kanlaon before being blended to perfection. The vanilla, honey, and candied fruit notes allow for the rum to be smooth and delicate on the mouth, with a long textured finish.
