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”.
Very easy to drink. Fried banana aromas in the nose, sweet entry with a more smoky mineral finish.
Initial burst of coffee and wood flavor, them a slight caramel finish...not as sweet as I like more like a Santa Theresa...would be an 8 in my books if it was a bit sweeter.
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.
Very dark in color but it stayed balanced. Its on the dryer side of rum. Not as dry as seale's but more than most. There is nothing offputing. The oak comes through on the finish. It wouldn't be my first choice but if I saw it at a bar it would be worth considering having again.
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.
