Papa’s Pilar Dark Rum: The website for this ultra-premium spirit traffics deep in mythologizing: “Hemingway lived an epic life in perpetual motion. And rum bore witness to it all.” You see, Papa is Hemingway, Pilar his fishing boat. The funny thing is this rum isn’t particularly terse or manly, even if it’s broad and bold. That’s partially since it’s made solera-style, with different distillations aged together, in both bourbon barrels and port wine casks. In a word, complex.
