Developed in conjunction with Ernest Hemingway’s estate, this deep, dark rum blended in the Solera style and finished in Spanish Sherry casks will satisfy tipplers with a sweet tooth. It reads almost like a spiced rum—soft and sweet, with notes of brown sugar, toffee, sasparilla and allspice, though it also has some dry aspects on the finish, showing baking spices, leather and dark chocolate.

Inspired by the boundless travels of Ernest Hemingway, Papa’s Pilar Dark boasts a bold mouth, long finish and a complex flavor profile, hell-bent on returning rum to its gutsy roots. This artisan-crafted spirit is sourced from hand-selected rum spanning the Caribbean, U.S. and Central America, aged up to 24 years, and solera blended by our master blending team in Bourbon barrels, Port Wine casks, finishing in Spanish Sherry casks. Papa’s Pilar Dark is bold and well-traveled; just like Papa.
