La Hechicera Extra Anejo rum Is distilled using the solera method and aged between 12 and 21 years in American white oak casks.
La Hechicera rum has been produced by the The Riasco family for the past two decades. They're the only family-run Rum distillery in Colombia. The rum derives its name from the Spanish word “Hechicera” which translates to “enchantress”.
Many say this is really not a rum but I believe it is a top notch impression of what can be done with rum. Full bodied nose without the bite that translates as a sipper. No sharp burn but a pleasant explosion of flavors that blend nicely. As a mixer is where the sweet and full body shine adding taste to any mix and a surprising sweet touch on the back of your tongue. This rum has definitely found a home in my bar.
Not bad. Not great. Nothing really stands out about it either straight or mixed; though the wax seal on the bottle is pretty cool. Neutral +
Beautiful bottle, nice color. First tasting:"...the hell?". Second tasting: "Not so bad". Third try: "Oh shoot this is good. Dry but good. And what the hell is the flavour at the end ?" It was familiar but I could not decipher. As I do not drink coffee it took me a while. But yeah, then I remembered that the end is like roasted coffee beans. Lovely.
A blend of rums not exclusively from Colombia, and solera aged.
Warm, woody notes with a good level of sweetness too. Very smooth with a nice finish.
One of my favourites and a great buy around the £38-42 mark
This Columbian Rum is dry and so tasty. Glad I took a chance on this, will definitely become part of my regular rums and will keep a few bottles on hand. 👍
Orange peel aroma dominates this rum, light bodied, easy to drink
A top favorite for sure! No additives just a fine 12-21 blend. I actually prefer this over rums triple the price
Interesting! Starts easy and soft but slowly develops into spiciness with distinctive liqourice.
Caramel color pleases the eye. Tobacco and vanilla meets the nose. Very dry on the tongue, compared to most other dark rums I have tasted, again with tobacco and vanilla. A fleeting finish.
Caramel, Coffee, Oak Wood with hints of citris (Orange). Amber in Color with a nice logo stamp on the bottle. Very smooth and worth every penny it cost. Did not last a week in the house. The longer it sits in ice the better it tastes. 10 in my books.
Really good taste for the price. On the drier side, not too complex. Super nice bottle. Makes a great gift
Sweetness, burnt caramel, a bit of oak. Overall pretty smooth with a lingering finish.
Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted a review; spent some time drinking Rye and the commoners swill (Beer). Sometimes you have to leave something for bit to appreciate it again. Plus it took some time to accumulate some new bottles of rum. In any event into the review.
On the nose; orange zest dominates and a little tobacco.
On the palate; again orange zest and citrus with oak.
Maybe it’s been a while for me but I find it quite astringent for a bottle that claims to be a solera style between 12 and 21 years.
The finish is dry and oaky and bitter; not bad but not a top shelfer for me.
Not for beginners. Ok, means, no sweet rhum, certainly no difficult rhum, the kind you start appreciating after trying many sweeter rhums. Me and my uncle tasted this one after much zacapa, plantation and yes even cracken. And accepted this one as best price quality. A really great rhum, no sweets but far from bitter or alcohol spirit sharpness. 40 % is our max level and this one has that holy level.
Not outspoken, tasty, far from a cheap sweet taste, brilliant balance. Yes, the sorceresses deserves its name.
Sugar: Estimated at 5 GPL. I found this to have a strong alcohol aroma and taste that subsides and gives way to coffee, burnt chocolate and wood. I tried this rum a dozen times before I could decide on what to rate it at and what it's primary tastes were. Overall it's a bit rough but once you get past the unmasked alcohol aroma and taste, it's okay. Not great but okay.

Když někde vidím velkou modrou pečeť, hned bych si dal kafe a hořkou čokoládu a doutník.
Voní čokoládou, vanilkou a kávovým zrnem. Chuť, trochu ostřejší, je po vanilce, skořici, trošce pepře a tabáku.
Když jsem si vyslechl příběh tohoto rumu, musel jsem si ho pořídit a rozhodně patří k mým oblíbeným.
First time I taste a good Colombian rum. It’s quite balanced and can he drink alone. Still, it isn’t more than a 7 for me
While there are likely some pricier options out there this is my personal favorite so far from Colombia
Lo estuve buscando años hasta que lo encontré finalmente en Alemania. Pero valió la pena la espera, un sutíl toque a alcohol en el paladar. Pero a la vez mucha suavidad, mucha fruta, café y caramelo. De los mejores rones que he probado.
I like the sweeter rums, and this one is sweet, but not overly so, and still quite dry. Very nice nose when you open the bottle and very gentle on the palate with notes of chocolate, coffee and a reminiscence of tobacco. That last one principally on the tongue, a while after. No afterburn at all. Will definitely go back!
Smooth, creamy, but also little woody and with the bit of cocoa. Definitely worth the money.
Very easy to drink. Fried banana aromas in the nose, sweet entry with a more smoky mineral finish.
