Sevillana Cask Finish: a limited edition of Rum Don Papa, super premium rum inspired by Spain with the scent of Seville oranges.
A blend of rum selected by Don Papa's Master Blender to produce a unique rum in its category, unfiltered and bottled at 40% ABV, the Sevillana Cask is an explosion of pleasant olfactory sensations.
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 department head on a sugar plantation, Pope Isio - healer, shaman, seer, rebel, and leader of a group of babaylanes - played a pivotal role during the late 19th century Philippine Revolution.
The spirit of Pope Isio and leadership played a key role in liberating Negros from Spanish rule, ultimately bringing independence to his beloved country.
Rum Don Papa embodies the spirit of independence of Pope Isio, irreverence and a sense of justice.
Distilled from some of the best sugar cane in the world, Don Papa Sevillana cask is aged 4-12 years in oak barrels at the foot of Mount Kanlaon before being aged in Oloroso sherry barrels and Andalusian barrels of Vino De Naranja.
The latter are used to prepare a local specialty of Seville, appreciated during the summer months.
Negros Occidental is and has always been the sugar capital of the Philippines.
Thanks to the perfect combination of climate, geography and the island's rich volcanic soil, Negros is ideal for sugar cane production.
Where there is sugar you will find rum.
Don Papa Sevillana cask is a premium aged rum of limited production.
Rum Don Papa is unique in three ways:
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 wood and has intense citrus notes.
Where there is rum, you will find Don Papa.
The aromas are intense and recall those of orange peel, aromas of hazelnut and dried fruit.
To the taste we find a slight smoking and a velvety sensation on the palate.
The color is brilliant and at the end it is long and pleasant.
This harmony of flavors and textures is a hymn to the rich cultural heritage of the Philippines.
For consumption it is suggested to drink Don Papa Sevillana cask rum alone or with ice and perhaps accompanied by a good Partagas cigar.
