Papa's Pilar "Spanish Sherry Cask Finish" Dark Rum
43% ABV (86 Proof), 750 ml
Papa’s Pilar, the award-winning, premium sipping rum inspired by Ernest Hemingway, has released 1200 cases of a new 86-proof Sherry Cask Finished Dark Rum. The team of Master Blenders created this limited-edition expression of Papa’s Pilar Dark Rum, which, after solera aging, is finished in Spanish Sherry Casks, allowing for a complex interaction between rum, and the once used Bourbon-soaked staves.
“By building off the strong base flavors found in our dark rum and allowing additional time for the blended rums to meld together, this special release has developed a slight sweetness combined with a uniquely spicy finish, resulting in a smoothness and complexity second to none,” said Ron Call, head of rum production. “The magic happens in aging - not between the rum and the fresh oak, but between the rum and the broken-down oak from a process that takes many years to develop.”
