From the Press
"Another fantastic member to Papa's ever growing family."
"A prominent oak base grounds the taste of one of Pilar's better offerings from the good side of nuttiness."
"The rum has a gorgeous nose full of lush vanilla, stewed plums in nutmeg, and soft bark spices with a hint of botanical herbaceous-ness."

Quick Note on Customer Service...
Never tasted any of the Pilar Rums that weren’t outstanding (& was sad to miss out on the recent Ernest special release!) - but wanted to just take a moment to call out the most outstanding & friendly customer service I’ve come across in years! Great product, great people, & a great purchasing experience...
Another great rum
Third time I’ve ordered Pilar Rum and every time has been painless. Great site, user friendly, fast shipping.

I love this rum. The flavors are complex and unique for a rum. Pleased with all of Papa's rums.

The delivery was excellent.
Just received few days ago, Will give out as gifts next month. When the group responds I will let you know. Frederick J Beyne
I am not a fan of the dark rum, but I love this one, because of the whiskey notes, I tried it neat and exceeded my expectations
So happy with my bottles of Papa’s Rye Cask Finished Rum. The nose, taste and finished are all equally outstanding. The rye cask finish elevates this already delicious dark spirit to the next level. So glad I bought three bottles. I know the first one won’t last long…
Papa's Pilar - Review of Recent Purchases
After a simple shopping experience - the website worked perfectly - and after being kept informed by Cask & Barrel as to the delivery process, I received my order of the Rye-finished, the Sherry-finished, and a few of the Dark and Blonde rums a few days ago - the precise day I was advised they'd arrive. Truth be told, I haven't tasted any of them yet. I'm familiar with the extraordinary quality of your product, so I'm in no rush, and instead are displaying the attractive bottles on my bookshelves while waiting for a reunion of family and friends, which will be the perfect time to show them off. We've been to your Key West distillery, and if I could snap my fingers, or twinkle my nose, and be back there right now, I'd do it. Every person at Papa's Pilar should be extremely proud of what they've accomplished, and I wish you continued success in the months and years ahead. Regards, Jimmy Rooney Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

New Rye Finished Rum
I have been a Papas fan from day one and have a bottle of every expression, including the Legacy Edition releases. This new flagship rum is big and bold, very similar in taste to the 2021 Legacy Edition finished in Rye barrels. They both have the same flavor profile of brown sugar, caramel, and vanilla, this new release just has slightly bolder flavors. The distilling / blending team hit another home run and at the current price point, you can’t go wrong.
The new Rye
Poured 3 fingers with ice and so smooth and refreshing. Papa don't stop sailing the sea's.
Asked for review but it has not arrived yet
Rye is to die for
Very nice flavor. Picked up vanilla notes with a mild rye finish.
