Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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's not quite Diplomatico but it's not far off - maybe not quite as smooth, not quite as sweet - but defintely has a character to it with a slight alcohol burn and a long lingering aftertaste of nicely roasted coffee. I have to say, a second bottle of this might see the rating go up a notch but for now it's good at 8/10.
I'm clearly in the minority on this one but I was left feeling a little short changed by this. The name, the wax seal on the bottle, the reviews - I had high expectations but found it a bit harsh, a bit over spiced, too woody and not sweet enough for my palette. Perhaps I'm just a philistine!
I am not typically a fan of rums from South America(SA). Not because they are bad, they just tend to be sweeter and thicker on the palette than I prefer.
This strikes a nice balance between sweeter SA blends and oaker Cuban rums. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying it straight up.
Rhum aux notes de cacao et de vanille selon moi (je n'ai pas senti de café contrairement à beaucoup). Très "épais", liquoreux, suave et sucré qui me plaît beaucoup.
Nice Ron with huge body, tobacco and coffee is like base of tastes. But many people will like it for its own stronger taste of those ingredients. Darker colour. Nice.
Smells like Ryoma, the first sip is pretty awful, but it's getting better with every other, full body.
What a great surprise! Vanilla, woody, lightly sweet. Great aroma and smooth flavor. Hardly any burn on the way down. This is a great rum to share with friends or enjoy by yourself.
It was too dry for me. The color was rich. The nose was balanced. The body was straight smookey and the aftertaste it was something like pure alcohol for me. I feel more pleasant with sweet rums but i had to taste it. There are 2 reasons i will try it again. The first is that i didnt add any ice or water and i would like to know if there is something hiding. The second is that i tried after plantation x.o. and millonario and im sure i didnt have "clear view"
Nice dark amber color. Notes of tabaco and toasted coffee. Citrusy flavor and lasting smooth finish.
La Hechicera is a naturally ‘unpolished’ rum, which means it has not been rounded up with additives or sugar, its smoothness and flavour are the result of the wood it is aged in. I'm starting to lean towards slightly drier rums so this one's a winner to me.
La Hechicera Extra Anejo - like it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The nose is light with a hint of age. Chocolate, roasted coffee ,subtle minty and peppery notes for a long finish. 80$ at LCBO is overpriced for this dry Solera rum with too much bite from the younger rums.
this is a strong tasing rum, but the heat is not too bad. Sweet, cinnamon
First at all, it is very creamy. It is like a Flor de Cana.
The coffee flavor is not so strong. There is a good balance of the flavor of vanilla, barrel and orange peel etc.
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.
