Don Papa Baroko 40° : Description and customer reviews

Don Papa Baroko is distilled from locally produced molasses on the island of Negros.

It is then aged for several years in American oak barrels and blended by the cellar master to ensure consistency over the years.

After cold filtration, it is bottled at 40°.

What's the difference with the classic Don Papa? There is hardly any: a very exuberant rum-based "spirit drink". However, this change of name allows us to better distinguish it from the Don Papa 7 ans "nouvelle formule". The latter, which is due to arrive at the end of June 2020, will have the right to be called rum, and will be drier than the old one, with a significant difference in terms of its aromatic profile.

Nico's tasting note

The nose is very sweet, orange and vanilla. Like an oriental confection, the rum caresses the nostrils with a pinch of icing sugar. One could think of a strawberry or rosewater flavoured Turkish delight. The candied orange peel still contains some of its slightly bitter oil, which gives it a little more depth.

The aeration confirms and reinforces the sensation of roundness. The candy sugar is melted and takes on the air of barley sugar. One can also think of the first bite of a strawberry chewing-gum.

The palate is soft, fluid and quite sweet. The confectionery and bubblegum atmosphere remains, but one could expect a stickier texture. The vanilla slides slowly over the tongue, the orange is in tune with it and forgets any hint of bitterness. On the other hand, there is a slight spicy, peppery note that lifts the whole.

The finish is very sweet, between strawberry, banana and orange in the form of sweets.

"A very sweet rum that takes us into the acidic alleys of a funfair..."

The comparison with the classic Don Papa shows fairly minor differences. The flavour profile is quite similar, except that the classic is arguably thicker and sweeter in the mouth. While the baroko is very bubblegum, the classic is more in the liqueur realm, but the difference is really subtle, as the two rums are so close.

Note the forthcoming release of a Don Papa 7 year old which will have the rum appellation, and which will certainly be less sweet. We will offer you a full tasting note on this occasion, so stay tuned!

    Very very good.

  2. claire fulero

    Excellent rum, well sweetened and well spiced. It could be mistaken for an arranged rum.

    It is a rum that can be enjoyed as a digestive or as an aperitif. I appreciate the slightly sweet taste.

    In the tradition of DonPapa, we know what we are buying, so let the detractors pass on.
