Papa’s Pilar Blonde is the first ever “Blonde” Rum, similar in color to the light rums Papa Hemingway enjoyed in Key West and Cuba during the 30’s. Sourced from hand-selected rums spanning the Caribbean and Central, South and North America, this award-winning spirit is solera blended in American Oak Bourbon barrels and Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks. At 84 Proof, it boasts a creamy mouthfeel with notes of crisp almond, butterscotch and hints of pineapple, mango, and key lime. A perfect rum for your Hemingway Daiquiri, boat drink or tiki cocktail.

Inspired by Ernest 'Papa' Hemingway and his time enjoying rum and whiskey during a shipwrecked fishing voyage to the Marquesas Keys, Master Blender, Ron Call finished this blend in #4 charred Kentucky straight whiskey barrels. The smoky char flavor contrasts nicely with the sweeter notes coming from the aging in Bourbon barrels, Port Wine casks and Spanish Sherry casks.
