Rum Nook: Evaluation 91 – Don Papa 10 yr previous

Picture copyright © H.Kristoffersen

Sadly simply one other doctored bucket of yuck.


Contemplate this one other public service. Why? You’ll discover out.
Some time in the past I subjected my self to the Don Papa 7, and had a
actually unhealthy time with it.

I’ve had its greater brother, the Don Papa 10, on my shelf
for fairly a while now, however to this point I’ve not been within the temper to deal with it.

However after a number of nice, uncommon and attention-grabbing rums, I
mustered up my nerves and determined that it was time.

Time to see if the ten would inflict severe injury om my
well being because the 7 threatened to.

Hailing from the Philippines, Bleeding Coronary heart Rum Firm has
issued this 10 yr previous rum, which is definitely simply their 7 yr previous with 3
extra years of ageing. So we’re nonetheless speaking (multi?) column nonetheless, molasses
based mostly rum.
To make issues extra attention-grabbing, they determined to bottle it
at 43% ABV as an alternative of the 40% of the 7 yr previous.
Moreover it’s a restricted version – however I discovered no
data on how restricted it’s.
There may be completely no details about this product on the
Don Papa webpage. I needed to seek the advice of a number of on-line retailers for data.
Oh effectively, that a lot much less time earlier than we truly get to
what’s necessary.
When taking a look at it, we see a black, thick cardboard tube
with a thick cork lid. Fascinating and tremendous good trying. Little doubt about it.
Plenty of effort has been put into the packaging – I hope
this isn’t one other case of paying premium value for advertising and marketing bullshit and
getting a crappy drink.
Contained in the tube is an equally fairly bottle.
A stubby bottle, with a large label which covers virtually
the whole bottle.
An elaborate piece of artwork, which is the truth is fairly
It’s topped off by a pure cork with a picket stopper.
I’ve to say that the vessel is tremendous spectacular. It does
look insanely good on a shelf. Hopefully it could provide me with an expertise,
which makes it value the actual property.
”However what’s contained in the bottle?”, you ask?
A really, very darkish mahogany liquid. Appears unusual that it could
get such a darkish color from simply 10 years of barrel ageing (Probably not. It’s
likely colouring caramel. I’m simply being a douche about it).
It lays down thick curtains on the within of the glass,
which hints issues to come back.
When placing the nostril to the glass, please keep in mind to smell
very flippantly.
I didn’t and my face virtually fell off as a consequence of manner an excessive amount of
vanilla and cherry bubble gum.

Thick, thick scents fill the air above the glass.

The above talked about vanilla and cherry bubble gum, are most
But additionally some huge lemon/lime scents, which makes me
suppose extra within the course of cherry cola and sprite.
On the extra refined aspect, there’s some liquorice someplace
within the combine, and only a tiny little bit of oak.
I think that huge quantities of colouring caramel has been
used to realize the color.
Okay, so with scents already so thick and cloying that I’m
reluctant to scent it once more, I ponder what it would style like. Oh geez … right here
goes nothing. If I’m not again in 5 minutes, please name the paramedics (and my
I don’t actually wish to style it. My mouth it salivating like
loopy as to warn me to not strive.
It begins out a little bit tannic. Then it explodes with extra
tannins, together with huge sugar, cola, vanilla and cherry bubble bum horror.

Somewhat liquorice can also be within the combine, however nothing in a position to compete with the artificial melange above.

After only a few sips it’s coronary heart burn and cavities throughout
the place.

Prefer it’s little brother, this isn’t rum!

Disgusting. I’m performed tasting this…
It doesn’t final very lengthy, however it’s nonetheless manner too lengthy.
With sticky enamel and an eternal flavour of thick artificial vanilla and cherry, I went to the kitchen to get a glass of water. It’s that
Score and last
One of many worst drinks I’ve ever had.
No depth, nothing attention-grabbing. Only a doctored bucket of yuck.
I don’t know what I used to be anticipating, however maybe I hoped that
on no account may the ten yr previous be as unhealthy because the 7 yr previous.
As soon as once more we’re coping with a drink which is all about
the advertising and marketing and nothing in any respect concerning the craft of distilling, barrel ageing
or mixing.
If the 7 yr previous was a large fuck you to everyone who
ever spent numerous hours perfecting their craft, the ten yr previous is a large
grin all the way in which to the financial institution.
As a result of regardless that that is completely undrinkable and doubtless
one of many worst issues to ever have been wrongfully named rum, individuals are
forking over huge piles of money for this crap.
Fortunately it isn’t extensively out there anymore, so hopefully it
is a closed chapter and Don Papa is completed robbing individuals of €50 a bottle (I
truly discovered references which confirmed a value of €70-80 – insane).
My recommendation could be to purchase virtually anything. These guys
don’t deserve your cash.
I’m completely disgusted {that a} product like this may be
offered as rum. It’s so far-off from being rum as something could possibly be.
And I’m not going to go straightforward on it this time. It has nothing
to supply aside from resentment, disappointment and kind two diabetes.
Good riddance Don Papa 10 and thanks for nothing Burning
Bleeding Coronary heart Rum Firm.

It did achieve
luring in a few fruit flies and killed them virtually immediately. That is received to imply one thing. Kudos.

(And now I received to name my dentist for an appointment ASAP
and go get my anti coronary heart burn medication).

(Though I don’t really feel too pleased about truly sending
visitors to their web site).
