Don Papa 10 Rhum Nights

One night I entered to one of the coolest hidden bar in the metro. Via 7 eleven convenience store at Bank Bar, RCBC Gf in BGC Taguig. Fella told me its one of the inn bar in the US - passing behind convenience store. The tower building may have corporate impression but when you enter the bar it smells like a corporate raider ambiance. I discovered what is beyond that Don Papa Rhum. A 100% pure Pinoy Rhum from Negros Island which is rich on sugar plantation. 

Also a Philippine made revolution inspired Rhum that catch global attention. Which age for over 7 years in American oak barrel from Mt Kanlaon, Negros Occidental before blended for perfection. And managed to make it special to the world of Rhum industry drinker like me. When you beat on your chest after you take the shot. Bottoms up cheers! Exhale deeply then said after you puff the cigar and resist the heat onto your throat - Ur d men!
It is smooth to smells and delicate in tongue with long texture finish of vanilla, candied fruits and honey. The 10 year old dark color Rhum mix were served to us by Davide Boncimino, winner of the cocktail competition last June 2015 in London, UK. Also with Don Papa International  Brand Ambassadors served to us the winning cocktail creation. 

Don Papa signature label was designed with 50 hidden animals on it like snail and gecko. Which looks like wilderness of natures hidden paradise. With ABV 40% available at your local liquor store in the Philippines and outside the country. The rhum smells inviting and taste really good that will refresh your lung! I feel I'm in London during that time with a double O order twist.

Rhum nights were perfect with chicharong bulaklak, chicken, burger, meat strips or your local pulutan fav. It was a good drinking night night with social alpha folks in advance celebration before the yearends. Also present during the event were Don Papa's 10 were Brand Mngr - Cristel Molina, Head of Communication - Monica Llamas, Director - Andrew Garcia,  Ambassador - Matthias Cadeac D'Arbaud and Celina Le Neindre, Kathryn Cornista and the Champ Davide.
