Recommendable to most
Maybe I should try updating my rating again but after sampling some Plantation Guatemala single cask and Hampden Estates this rum does not hold a candle. Nice brown color super smooth not overly sweet like Zacapa Solera but just tastes watered down without any lingering depth. I think it’s good for the price but would not likely order again.
Tried it again very good rum but not as much depth as I would like.

I Like this rum alot, it has some sweet notes in the nose and also a tasty sweetness in the mouth.. still it is complex and you can find a few different notes while tasting it more frequently. Great sipping rum!
At first I wasn't sure about buying a rum from Colombia.
However after reading some reviews I decided to give it a try and boy, I'm glad I did.
Nice coffee taste, while not being overly sweet.
Can see this appeal to a lot of people.
For me this was a hidden gem!
Not considered in my score, but also really nice presentation and excellent price/quality.
I have always been more of a scotch and bourbon drinker. Of all the rums I tried this reminds me the most of a Scotch or bourbon.
I know the place to buy Hechicera at El Dorado Airport in Bogota. I can resist to go there whenever I go to Bogota. Excellent rum, beautiful bottle. On my list of my ten favorite. After trying so many rums, this is one to be part of my "active" collection.
I find this rum to be the perfect balance between oaky and dry, as traditional rum should be. Very appealing to any purist rum (or even whisky) lover!
"It is zesty and spicy with more pronounced orange flavour. There is also a red grape flavour which is very pleasant."
