Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance:
In the glass, Papa Pilar Platinum Blonde Rum displays a crystalline clarity with a straw-like hue, offering an alluring subtlety that invites a closer look.

Nose (Aroma):
The initial aromatic profile is a joyful, tropical orchestra of scents. One can detect traces of coconut and fresh pineapple, blended with mild hints of vanilla and subtle, sweet floral notes. There's a slight undertone of molasses, just enough to give it that quintessential rum backbone.

Palate (Taste):
Upon first taste, this rum surprises with its rounded mouthfeel, revealing a spectrum of flavors ranging from bright citrus to tropical fruit and delicate spices. The solera aging process imparts a certain mellowness, harmonizing disparate elements like mango, papaya, and a pinch of white pepper. This is a rum that doesn't overpower but seduces with its nuanced complexity.

A surprisingly elongated finish for a blonde rum, it leaves a lasting impression of tropical fruits and light spices, with a trace of cane sugar sweetness that fades gracefully. There’s a touch of oak in the backdrop, adding layers to an already intriguing finale.

Despite its lighter hue, this rum has a pleasingly full mouthfeel. It coats the palate without being syrupy, making it an incredibly versatile spirit both for sipping and mixing.

Great Service

Was looking for a special edition Pilar rum. Third Base had it online for an extremely good price so I emailed asking them to verify it was indeed what was advertised. They very quickly responded confirming it was. I ordered a couple of bottles which arrived quickly and extremely well packaged. They were indeed what I wanted so I ordered a few more before they ran out! The price was excellent, shipping costs were reasonable, and communications (both automated and personal) were quick and helpful. A very good experience.
