A team of master blenders created the special-edition Papa’s Pilar dark with seven hand-selected rums up to 25 years old, which are both pot- and column-distilled. After solera aging in bourbon barrels, port wine casks, and Spanish sherry casks, the bold and complex rum was further aged in Spanish oloroso sherry casks for 30 days, creating a unique flavor.
The rum has a slightly dark amber color, with an aroma of caramel and a hint of sherry. The flavor profile has notes of brown sugar, oak, caramel, toffee, maple and an underlying nuttiness. It’s exceptionally well rounded and balanced, but not without personality.
