Thumbs up Papa's Pilar rum

I received a bottle of Papa's Pilar as a gift. It is bottled by Panache Distillery in New Port Richey, FL for Hemmingway Rum Co. It is similar to Ron Zacapa 23 and Zaya but, a bit stronger at 86 proof. It is a Solara blended rum from continuous and pot stilled aged rum then finished in sherry casks. A bit sweet for some but I find it very enjoyable with a small splash of water to ease that 86 proof a bit. Any other folks tried this rum yet? I couldn't find it on the web site either.

I'm still trying to get some verifiable information about this rum before I add it to this database.

I have a bottle of this. I didn't enjoy it but I was going to revisit it later. So many people like it that it crossed my mind that I got a bad bottle.

It is exceeding rare to get a bottle of rum that is drastically different from the rest of the batch. I'm not going to say that you will never get your hands on a bad bottle of rum, but I will say that what you get, more than most of the time, is a bottle that is representative of that batch of rum that was bottled.

I figured as much, but I did want to give this rum the benefit of the doubt, so many people say it is so good.

I have a store pick of Re-Barreled PP Rum with a side label:

Re-Barrel type: Bourbon
Expression: Dark

I haven't had an off the shelf PP rum and was wondering if
there is a "standard" version or if all are re-barrels. The one
I have is very tasty and I'd take a chance on other re-barrels
in hopes of finding a gem.

Where did you get it? It is a different bottle than the standard. Aged additional time in Angel's Envy casks for 3 months.

On-line seller who is currently sold out. I found another re-barrel
and was wondering if they had a similar taste profile.

Maybe I'll just roll the dice & try...
