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”.
It has a nice brown color in the glass. Smell and taste is pretty. Has a small burn, but that's not a bad thing.
Rich and complex on the nose, creamy caramel and slight tropical notes on the palate. Good finish with little heat. This may become my house sipping rum - great quality/price ratio.
Found this in London recently, good tasting straight mixing causes this to loose some subtle flavors.
Tried at a local bar. It was awful. Even with coke. Somthing was smelling very bad inside. Never again.
Had pretty high expectations on the La Hechicera Extra Anejo rum for 2 reasons. First of all it's very hard to find in South Florida and secondly since the Diplomatico family of rums are coming from the same region as the La Hechicera. I was quite surprised about the results though. The rum has very nice semi-dark color, a bit strong on the nose, very quick flavor burst and then nothing. No afterburn, no lingering after taste. La Hechicera is very similar to the Santa Teresa 1796 rum, which I also scored an 8. La Hechicera is a relatively decent rum, but far from being a great rum.
Eye: Golden light brown.
Nose: Sweetness, dusty-wooden.
Mouth: Alcohol, wooden barrel, low on sugar. Soft.
- A good rum, got some to offer. With some edge, low on sweetness.
Ive only had a few quality rums, but this one is my favorite. Not as sweet as dictador, which i prefer.
Ron seco, fácil de beber, con bajo sabor a alcohol.
En rum på det jævne. Ikke den bedste smag/eftersmag
I don't know many rums from Columbia however this one i certainly can recommend. Not much alcohol aroma, nor very smooth however this is for me a honest product. Nice bottle.
taste little stronger but so nice smooth smell, dry rum once i tried and no need again
La Hechicera is a great rum with subtle smokey flavours. However this is not a smooth rum and burns on the way down.
Vynikajici rum s kavovou prichuti a celkem suchy. Pripomina trosicku Dictadora, jako takovou kolumbijskou skolu, jen je takovy zemitejsi mi prijde.
Oaky. Dry. Easy to drink. Opens up more as it sits.
This is yet another rum that I will buy again. Great smell, fabulous flavours. Not thickened with sugars like my usual go to types. I would recommend this. A great sipping rum.
Til prisen er det egentlig et ganske fint glas. Ganske sød uden at være parfumeret. Ikke noget prangende, men billig og en fin begynder.
To start with a nice dark rich color, first smell from the bottle chocolate, sweet caramel and sugarcane aromas hit your nose, from the Bottle nearly no alcohol smell and Into the glass the alcohol is more noticeable but pleasant to the nose.
In my experience a cube of ice a little swirl of the glass and a 5 minute wait makes this a Excellent Rum.
The scent is oddly sweet for a rum with no added sugar but the taste reveals that he is one of this kind. The taste is rather light and unobtrusive. A great and honest light sipping rum with a spicy.
I had only one glass, not the whole bottle. However, the rum smellt nice, the after taste was a little bitter.
En rom på det jævne. Eftersmagen er lidt til den bitre side.
First smell, it is a bit weird. Very closed. But let it open for some minutes and it will give you amazing aromas, almost without alcohol.
The taste is fantastic. So balanced and so nice.
Velice chutny a prijemny rum. Chut je sladsi, medova, krasne jemna a hladka, kulata, bez vyrazne spicky. Ocas nenì zadny, spise jemny. Lahev je velice pekne zpracovana, s krasnou modrou peceti. Pokud se vam podari sehnat i s krabici, bajecny darek.
The first time I sipped it after opening the bottle, I was disappointed. The aftertaste seemed to be weak and a little off-tasting. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but I was not impressed--especially considering the price. However, the second time I tried it, it was fine. More than fine, actually. I guess this one needs a bit of oxygen to round it out. Now I think it could easily be one of my regulars, provided it's in stock.
It's not too sweet, yet it's smooth and tasty. I wouldn't call it fruity. The aftertaste is a bit short, relatively speaking, but not as empty as Brugal 1888. And, it apparently has no sugar or other flavor additives, which is a bonus for me. An excellent sipper that doesn't get much discussion.
And, I know this has no bearing on the taste, but that is a very sexy-looking bottle!
