Recommendable to most
For me little bit harder to drink -> more as agricol than sweet. For the others I can say it could be 8. From view it is not sweet rum it is very good rum without negative "medical" taste/aroma. You can taste typical rum aroma.
Sweetness -> 4.5/10
Strength -> 6/10
Rich aroma of dark fruit and some burnt sugar with very little alcohol smell. First sip is very pleasant with a subtle oak and medium sweetness with a dark coffee profile. Slight bite in the throat but a gentle heat in the chest that lingers surprisingly long (might be that Kali Ma ritual from last night). The back end is where the coffee flavor is most noticeable but not overpowering. It makes for some bitterness but in a good way. This rum isn't incredible, but doesn't make many mistakes.
A very fairly priced solera rum, supposedly additive free. The nose is nice with wooden notes, orangepeel and a bit of toffee. In the mouth the rum behaves smoothly like a solera should, but it's not destractingly sweet like so many other solera. I pick up medium bodied and unmasked notes of wood, sweet tobacco and roasted coffee. It's not very complex and the slightly spicy finish fades fairly quick, but the composition works very well. A fine rum that doesn't demand to much attention, but works perfectly neat alongside a game of cards. It definitely shares some similarities with dictador, another colombian rum, but at this pricerange i prefer la hechicera. Thumbs up.
a very creamy scent of caramel and some sorts of toffee. in the mouth it is creamy and smooth. harmonic. round. no edges. for some moments to chill. i taste orange and coffee notes. maybe some tobacco. in the base it has to do with dictador rum, but in the end it adds the orange twist to it. very good stuff, i think and of course no added sugar. in the end it lacks one point to ten, because of its harmonic taste without any edge :).
As a rum aficionado this is hands down one of the best rums I have ever tasted. Dry, incredibly smooth and an aroma to die for this is a beautiful tribute to what rum should taste like in its unadulterated form. I came across this on the back of a very much appreciated recommendation, hard to find but worth every effort in tracking down.
Měl jsem ji vyhlédnutou k ochutnání dosti dlouho. Podle recenzí se jedná o vynikající rum za rozumnou cenu. Dnes jsem ji ochutnal. Po otevření láhve lze cítit nasládlou vůni. Podle vůně jsem čekal rum sladší než je ve skutečnosti. Při prvním doušku, se mi zdálo, že recenze, které jsem četl, před jeho ochutnáním, lhaly. Další doušky mne přesvědčili o jeho jemnosti a pomalém rozplývání na jazyku. Tento rum je opravdu jemný, ale není sladký. Malinko bych jej porovnal s Doorly´s XO, které se jeví malinko více voňavé po vanilce a tropických květech a chuťově je jemnější. Nicméně skvělý rum a podle mne 9.
Really a good discovery during an event in Belgium. Once in the glass, the Hechicera shows its nice light amber color accompanied of small lazy legs.Once you sip it , even with no added sugar, you realise that it is really smooth with a little gentle burn. On the aroma point of view, you will found toffee, tobacco and some fruit.
It is always a pleasure to grab the bottle out of the bar and enjoy a well served glass of this delicious rum :-D
Spanish style solera with rums from 12 to 21 years in the mix. For a rum with a minimum age of 12 years there is surprisingly much fruit in the nose; orange (peel) mostly with floral undertones. Also fudge and wood are present and it smells very inviting.
On the palate the age becomes clearer with a lot of spiced/charred woody notes with a bitter (but not too bitter) coffee, more orange (even close to red grapefruit) and a lot of spice (black pepper). Tobacco is also there but in a more floral way.
There is a lot to taste and the rum offers a mouth full of flavours in a very balanced way. Despite not being overly complex it is very entertaining and a real treat. They did a really good job in Colombia with this one!
Sugar: Estimated at 5 GPL. I found this to have a strong alcohol aroma and taste that subsides and gives way to coffee, burnt chocolate and wood. I tried this rum a dozen times before I could decide on what to rate it at and what it's primary tastes were. Overall it's a bit rough but once you get past the unmasked alcohol aroma and taste, it's okay. Not great but okay.
This turned out to be a nice surprise. I usually rate rums about a point below consensus (as I've tried so many fabulous rums), but I'm rating this one slightly above the current score.
Smells and tastes of caramel, oak, toffee, tobacco, a peppery spice and a touch of cacao. Very nice!
"It is zesty and spicy with more pronounced orange flavour. There is also a red grape flavour which is very pleasant."
