The Expression has been described as a rich and smooth rum with, notes of fruit and spices on the nose, with a cake fruit, cocoa, oak notes on the palate and a long cool finish with notes of wild mint.
Rare Cask joins the Don Papa portfolio, which includes the original Don Papa and the Don Papa 10-year-old limited edition. Limited to 6,000 numbered bottles globally, the rum is packaged in a wooden canister, with details of Don Papa’s island home. Don Papa Rum was inspired by the story of one of the unsung heroes of the Philippine revolution: Dionisio Magbuelas, better known locally as "Papa" Isio.
Commemorating the launch, Don Papa commissioned wood sculptor Dave Johnson to recreate the bottle and its label in a one-off wood sculpture. Don Papa Rare Cask will be available at a selection of bars and restaurants with a recommended retail price of $85.00.
