Rum Papalin is one of Luca Gargano's first creautures, marketed in 2013 only in the best places specialized in the Spirit of the Caribbean and is now presented in a new composition.
This is the new Papalin Jamaica 7 years of aging version with 47 degrees of alcohol.
The Papalin 2021 aged seven years is a blended rum from the most important Jamaican distilleries with 100% pot still distillation.
The native molasses has been fermented for a long time and subsequently distilled, resulting in a fresh and crunchy rum.
This Pot Still rum comes from a blend of Worthy Park (80%), Hampden HCLF aged in ex-bourbon barrels (10%) and Hampden HCLF aged in ex-sherry barrels (10%).
The rums selected by Luca Gragano were mixed in cask and subsequently the casks were aged for 7 years under the tropical sun
It is a Blended or Vatted of different types of Rum assembled according to the old traditional system, which gave us a limited edition of a few thousand bottles.
