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.
If it's true that by their own statement this hasn't been adulterated than this is an excellent buy for the price.. Nice flavour with a crisp smooth but dry finish. Love the bottle with the Caribbean sunset silhouette when looking through the good stuff.
Happy to discover this one. Great taste, full of details. tasting coffee beans ad chcolate! Nice colour in the glass.
It's not bad, but i have tasted much better one's. Price is ok.
Good for those who don't like it too sweet.
A very good allround rum which is quire pure in a sense that it is not outspoken in any way as in not too sweet, not too bitter, not too stingy, not too weak etc
might be the bestrum to give to someone who never had rum and wants to know what it is about. A bit too expensive though at 45 euros
Bon petit ron qui est étonnamment sec! Pas trop ma tasse de thé donc mais pas mauvais quand même! Bonne dégustation!
Qui a osé le noter 3, 4, 5, 6

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!
rum to drink with cola..nothing special..very expensive for what it is..some flavour of vanilla, coffee avvery nd tobacco...but very light...not recommend it as there are a lot of better rums at this price
Diesen Rum kann man gut mit dem Presidente Martí vergleichen. Finde beide gleich gut. Mir aber im Abgang zu unauffällig
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.
Silna chut, citit alko, trochu zapali na jazyku. Obecne silnejsi
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.
Harsh and a little earthy, don't really like but the bottle is cool.
Bottle: One of the best, very interesting
Body: bourbon aftertaste, spicy/hot
Tail: medium lasting
The odor is really interesting, the taste was quite disappointing.
Heb deze rum nu 5 dagen en ben er gek op gewoon super kleur geur en smaak. Veel verschillende smaken voor een kenner een topper
Très belle découverte, sec mais équilibré avec le bois et des arômes complexes et profonds... Un rhum riche. Une de mes préférences.
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!
I had the pleasure to sample this rum at a cigar pairing at Boisdales Belgravia. As a rum lover I have found a perfect match in this rum; spicy and drier than other light South American rums, it has a unique taste profile and its smooth as silk.
It is a fine rum, but nothing I will buy again. In this price range, there is so much better. I was really looking forward to this rum and it is nothing special
+ color, great gentle taste with little bit coffe and tobacco, Columbia treasure
- little bit flavor
Recommended rum with nice taste
La Hechicera Extra Anejo Rum har en afbalanceret sødme med krydderi og egtræsfad i smagen.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Kůže, exotické dřevo, tabák, koření, cedr, starodávný nábytek. Těžší styl rumu. (88 b)
Chuť: Suchý, "koňakový" styl. V chuti zakulacený, s vanilkou, dřevem, kakaem. Působí svým stylem a celkovým vyzněním "staře". Zajímavá dochuť starého dřeva. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Další kousek v pořadí z poslední Hořické degustace u josého. Hodně zajímavý rum, zraje systémem solera v amerických sudech z bílého dubu. Určitě stojí za vyzkoušení.
Interesting bottle, but no magic inside :)
Some of average premium rum, not bad, but nothing special. In this price level exist more better options. Colombia looks not best rum destination for me.
