Named after one of the greatest authors of the twentieth century, Ernest Hemingway, and the boat he used to travel the world, Pilar, this is an artisan brand based in the USA. Marrying together Rums from around the world they create two expressions, Blonde and Dark, and pay homage to a great man and a great drink.
  
Papa’s Pilar Dark is aged in Solera and Port Wine casks and finished in Sherry casks, giving it a spicy and sweet oak wood flavor. It is made up of Rums from Florida, Central America and the Caribbean. Like most Rums, it has a traditionally sweet overtone, but has a wonderfully dark and bitter undertone, full of coffee and dark chocolate, to complement the caramel perfectly.

Warren
Warren,
Great rum with full bodied flavor that’s a great addition to any home bar or for general sipping when you need a taste of something special. I picked up my first bottle in Key West at the distillery. If you ever visit the Keys, make sure you make time to visit and take the tour. This purchase is a steal for any rum enthusiast. Enjoy!

Tyrone,
First, I am a scotch drinker by preference. That said, I will sample most any adult beverage. While on vacation in Key West FL I was offered a tour of Papa's Pilar Rum Distillery. I am glad I accepted the offer. I now know a little more about the history of rum in this country and I know how good a fine rum can taste. This rum drink well neat, it is 86 proof but the taste is mild and sweet. I get a hint of vanilla, sugar cookie, wood, and rum raisin ice cream.
 
Troy
Troy,
Avoided because I thought it was a gimmick. Then I tried it. This is a great, well-rounded rum good either on it's own or mixed. Likely to become my go-to rum at home. Gimmick or not, this is a winner.
 
Ariella
Ariella,
I really enjoyed this rum, it smelled sweet and had some sweetness in the taste. To be honest I'm new to this; so vague details is all I got. Plus, I haven't really tasted enough of others to rate this rum properly, however saying all that, in this current time and place I stand by my rating.
 
Danny
Danny,
Sweet with strong notes of caramel/butterscotch.
 
Henry
Henry,
I’m normally more of a Tennessee whiskey and Kentucky bourbon drinker, but this rum was on the tasting bar at my favorite liquor store, so I thought, “Why not?“ I must say, I was blown away! It is absolutely exquisite, quite sweet with notes of brown sugar, caramel, spice, and vanilla.
 
Michael
Michael,
Slightly overly sweet. Good start but the sweet maple syrup flavors are a bit too strong, effecting the finish. I don't mix my drinks so this will likely stay in the bar for visitors with a taste for sweet dark rums.
 
Jarred
Jarred,
sweet, smooth, slightly buttery. tastes very similar to the Kirk & Sweeney 18 yr rum
 
Howard
Howard,
Relatively sweet. Smooth. A bit of a maple syrup flavor. Nice aftertaste. Seems like they might be going for a cute, gimicky rum using the Florida/Caribbean/Hemmingway bit. Expensive for a blended rum in my opinion. Others for the price that I like better; Afrohead, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, el Dorado 15 Year Kirk and Sweeney 23 year.
 
Brianne

Not that smooth at all. At this price point, better bet is Kirk and Sweeney 23 YR or El Dorado 12 YR
 
Bruce
Bruce,
I enjoyed it a lot. Vanilla led the way but enough bitter tang came through at the end to make it very interesting. I would buy it again. After trying all the others....
