The Rum

The Papa’s Pilar Marquesas Special Blend, Rum Finished in Whiskey Barrels, named ‘Best In Class’ by the 2019 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition. 

“Much pride went into crafting this exceptional sipping rum. Premium, hand-selected rums were masterfully blended in a solera process in bourbon, port and sherry barrels, then finished in Kentucky straight whiskey barrels. As a second generation distiller, whiskey was my first love & I’m proud to share this release.” - Ron Call, Master Blender 

THE TASTE

Nose: Complex notes of vanilla, coffee beans and honey with hints of toasted almond.

Taste: Rich cocoa notes with a slight hint of oak and vanilla.

Finish: Growing spice, with a smooth sweetness and everlasting length.

Serve: On the rocks, neat or the Marquesas Manhattan.

THE INSPIRATION

Papa’s Pilar Marquesas Special Blend marries Papa Hemingway’s love for fine rum and whiskey into a single pour. Sourced from hand-selected rums spanning The Caribbean, U.S. & Central America, blended by Master Blender, Ron Call, and finished in once used #4 Char Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey Barrels.

THE MAN

Ernest 'Papa' Hemingway was known for many things- he was an author, freethinker, adventurer, sportsman and bon vivant. He traversed the seas in his boat the Pilar, searching for adventures each more epic than the last.
