The new limited edition Don Papa Flora & Fauna rum, to drink or collect!
Rum Don Papa or The Don, was inspired by the story of one of the celebrated heroes of the Philippine revolution: Dionisio Magbuelas, better known locally as "Papa" Isio.
Initially a sugar plantation foreman, Papa Isio - healer, shaman, seer, rebel, and the leader of a group of babaylanes - played a pivotal role during the late 19th-century Philippine Revolution.
Papa Isio's spirit and leadership played a pivotal role in liberating Negros from Spanish rule, ultimately bringing independence for his beloved country.
Rum Don Papa embodies the spirit of independence of Papa Isio, irreverence and a sense of justice.
Distilled from some of the best sugar cane in the world, Don Papa is aged 7 years in oak barrels at the foot of Mount Kanlaon before being blended to perfection.
Negros Occidental is and always has been the sugar capital of the Philippines.
Thanks to the perfect combination of climate, geography and the rich volcanic soil of the island, Negros is ideal for the production of sugar cane. And, where there is sugar you will find rum.
Don Papa Flora & Fauna is a premium aged rum of limited production.
Rum Don Papa is unique in three respects:
It is a rum that comes from a single island (Negros), produced 100% with the island's sugar cane;
It is aged for over 7 years in American oak.
Where there is rum, you will find Don Papa .... but you will hardly find the Flora & Fauna limited edition.
Light and fruity on the nose, smooth and delicate on the palate, amber in color, Don Papa has a long finish full of flavors, vanilla, honey and candied fruit.
For consumption it is suggested to drink Don Papa Flora & Fauna rum alone or with ice and perhaps accompanied by a good Partagas cigar.
