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”.
Recommendable to most
The colour and aroma is very alluring, yet gives very little away appart from a bit of sweetness and wood. The taste is smooth, dry and a bit bitter to start but once given the chance to breath a tinge of sweet emerges, but not much.
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.
This is again a very pleasant solera rum with all its features.
Head to head comparison with Plantation XO 20th anniversary this one is less complex and bitter.
I recommend though it is a more daily rum than a festive one.
Had high expectations. He didn't dissapoint me.
No aroma-bombs in the smell and a very pure and clean taste. Could have more coffee or espresso flavour but I really really really like that one. In my opinion a true rum.
The moment the bottle is empty, a new one will be orderd :-)
Not a bad rum with common aromas, it has a woody profile like Mount Gay XO. I lack some special aromas or a special character. It's very spicy. There is a lack of balance, I know Columbiam rums are spicy but this is too much. Especially for a woody profile rum. It's more spicy than MG Black Barrel.
After four months, the evaporation has affected it very much, the taste is getting worse. It lost a lot of aromas, there is just wood and spiciness. One of the few rums that unfortunately get worse over time.
Smell: oak, caramel, dry fruit, some apricot, vanilla, wood
Taste: wood, caramel, honey, some fruits (orange), vanilla, spice
aged from 12-21 solera
"It is zesty and spicy with more pronounced orange flavour. There is also a red grape flavour which is very pleasant."
