108 Don Papa 10-Year ratings

Sort by: Popularity | Date | Rating

This is not that much of an improvement on the normal Don Papa. If anything it seems they've just added some darker sugar and black food colouring. Again, the marketing is excellent and if you like the bottle design, go for it. Just don't expect anything other than a sugar syrup.


Smooth and sweet good tasting dark rum. Couldn't taste as much of the age as I would like.


Rich, dark, fairly smooth. Sweet and fragrant with orange peel. Perhaps the true purists will wonder what 10 years did to it.


nez caramel plein pot
goût caramel , pointe de miel orange et épices , tres chaleureux


N- So the Don on the label got older, but the lizard on the head still remain young. Prelude with good ashy notes, darker with cocoa, as well rustier and mineral, bitter sweet, spent match stick and whiff of phenol from the wood. (18/25)

P- Sweet menthol, toothpaste, dust of pepper and herbs. More muscle with higher abv, dark coco and vanilla. The citrus from the 7YO is missing here, hence heavier and syrupy. (16/25)

F- Short-medium, boiled spices with more dryness offering a better mouth feel and make it for a better sip, though still sugary sweet and creamy. (17/25)

Balanced:- Surely not a serious and complex sipping rum, but not bad for a casual sips, would be nice with ice, by the pool, under the sun. Like the cocoa. (18/25)

Weighted Rate:- 69pt

Tastes of orange, vanilla and burnt wood but a lot of sugar.
Nice to drink, better than Don Papa 7 years.


DON PAPA 10 ans, un rhum 100% Phillippines

Cette édition est rhum d'assemblage, issu de la fermentation d’une mélasse très riche en sucre, est distillé dans des alambics à colonnes. Il est ensuite élevé pendant 10 longues années sur l’île de Negros, au pied du volcan Kanlaon, dans des anciens fûts de chêne américain ayant contenu du bourbon. Ces fûts ont été "re-toastés", c'est à dire légèrement brûlés à l'intérieur, afin d'apporter des notes de chênes et de vanille aux arômes gourmands et fruités du rhum. En raison du climat, la part des anges aux Philippines est très importante et la distillerie a une volonté de ne pas re-remplir les fûts avec du jeune rhum. Cela donne un rhum plus concentré en arômes, tout en intensité, avec une robe sombre, presque noire.

Une Edition Limitée

Ce rhum des Philippines est produit en édition limitée. Seulement quelques bouteilles de ce rhum seront disponibles pour le marché français. Pour cette expression, le maître distillateur a sélectionné le meilleur, rien que le meilleur...

NOTES DE DÉGUSTATION

Couleur : Ambre foncée à reflets sombres.

Nez : Profond et riche avec une impression de puissance. Marqué par des notes d'agrumes et de vanille.

Bouche : Gourmande et complexe, avec des notes marquées de cacao, d'agrumes et de fruits secs.

Finale : Longue et riche sur les fruits secs et les agrumes, relevés d'une pointe de cacao. Délicieux.


Det bedste ved denne Rom er flasken. Den er vildt cool.
Duften er sød og frugtig.
Smagen starter sødt, men bliver en smule besk.


a really fruity taste and different from all i tasted before, so if you sometimes like something real different here is one


D'une robe sombre a l'image de la bouteille ce rhum 10 ans a plus de caractère que le Don Papa classique.
Il est moins aromatique que le classique mais garde la même base fruité, relativement moelleux il est quand même plus sec que son cadet.
Très épicé il ne plaira pas a tous le monde moins que la classique tout du moins. On retrouve des notes cacao vanille avec une touche de cannelle selon température de dégustation. Cela reste un très bon rhum et difficile a trouver


Very sweet but very good. Normally I prefer drier rums but this one is really good. It is sweet but strong and full of flavor...


Much better and more complex than 7y. Similar aroma but not so sweet and more complex taste, heavy body with more layers. Long and warm aftertaste. Bit overpriced.


43° strong, good, typical Don Papa, still sweet with candied fruits, Vanilla, uninterchangeable. I like the full taste.


If you like sweet rum, you will find Don Papa 10YO great.
Sugar+vanilla and very soft aftertaste. I don't believe that it is true 10YO rum, but taste really impressed me.


Quality-mature 7/10 taste 6/10. More original & better in taste than small batch but strange dont like it not well blended some sweetnes (not overly), not much burn but also nothing intresting here & very expensive for its price.


Is it very good? Yes. Is it excellent? No. Is the taste worth approx. 4 times more money spent on the bottle than regular Don Papa? No. Smooth taste with traces of citrus fruit. Verdict, including price to quality ratio: 70%.


Umiddelbart synes jeg faktisk den almindelige Don Papa Small batch er bedre. Måske jeg synes jeg noget andet, hvis man smager dem samtidigt. 10-year er meget sød og frugtig i duften, så man bliver overrasket, når den starter med at sparke din smagsløg igang , for der er virkelig power i til at starte med, men den bliver hurtig overtaget af brændt sukker, rosiner og dadler. Derefter fornemmer jeg en smule appelsin suppleret med lidt peber. Overordnet set sidder jeg dog tilbage med en oplevelse af frugt, og det trækker ned.


I tested original Don Papa like a year ago. I dont remember the taste of it but I remember it wasnt anything special. Ten years old version is far better but still has a lot space to grow in quality. In Czech Republic you can get a bottle of 10yo for over 150USD and I dont really think this rum is worth of that money.

Bottle: Original Don Papa had a nice bottle and 10yo is almost the same, just in different colors. Its kinda pretty, but no original idea here.

Color: semi-dark with notes of melted gold.

Smell: I can smell some spice from Don Papa yet I am not sure about which it is. I smell some raisins and vanilla. There is almost no trace of alcohol smell at all, because its killed with sweetness. You can smell caramel as well

Taste: When you put Don Papa into a glass you can see its very sweet from how the liquid moves in the glass. And yes, it is very sweet. And also very smooth. It has very light traces of alcohol, but what you can taste most is caramel, raisins and sweetness in general. Some kind of dried fruit and thats all.

Don Papa 10yo is not bad. I wouldnt refuse it if it was offered to my to drink, but definitelly not buying a bottle of my own.


Big step up for me from the ordinary Don Papa. Not keen on the aroma of the normal Don Papa but this is better and it has a dinstinctive flavour. Good sipper.


J'attendais de lui qu'il soit plus élaboré. Il rejoint fort le don papa classique. Cependant pour les amateurs du genre il est bon mais je le trouve un peu chère du coup...


The smell is very strong butterscotch and also very alcoholic. The taste is a nice mixture of vanilla and butterscotch and is spoiled just a little bit by the strong smell of alcohol. Overall, very smooth and enjoyable


Very very good rum, this one is for me the best reference for begin to appreciate the first rum you taste


Mes amis et moi ne sommes pas experts en rhum, mais voici un breuvage qui nous a tous conquis, hommes et femmes, sans exception !
Un nez riche et voluptueux donnant envie de sentir et sentir et sentir encore avant de passer a la degustation proprement site avec des notes vanillees et chocolatees intenses, presque cremeuses, avant de passer a une finale d une longueur eblouissante.
Une veritable merveille qui fait le delice de nos palais depuis une bonne annee deja, que ce soit en Europe ou lors de nos sejours aux Philippines !


Cola taste and lot of sugar, far from what a Rhumshould be...dont believe i will order it again or buy a bottle ever..
