Tasty, but not quite great
N- Interestingly fragrant, creamy, bean-y with trace of salts and banana leaf. An eight years rum if the info is correct. Natural with coffee notes and unsweetened, but feel lacking at the same time. Can go either way and depends on what's you expect. (83/18)
P- It reminds me of the scents of young stone fruits, black Americano that also quite nice. But somehow it developed the perfume-y scents of floral which a bit weird and quite potent to the flavor. (78/16)
F- Short, salt with black coffee sour tannin, would be better off without the troublesome perfume-y flower notes. (83/18)

THIS IS RUM LIQUEUR TASTING LIKE COFFE!
This is not rum. This is liqueur. If you dont like coffe and if you dont like liqueurs, dont even buy this. Go away from it and buy something else. Or you will be really and I mean REALLY dissappointed. Understood? Good.
Now I must admit that this is my favorite liqueur so far. I love its smell and the taste is brilliant. It is also stronger than clasic Kahlúa (which I can definitely recommend) and you can also use it to desserts. It both smells and tastes exactly as you would expect. As coffe liqueur. There is not much more to say about it. But it is obvious that rum used for this liqueur is no trash and Dictador put a lot of work into this.
I really like the idea to create a rum with coffee taste. The result is very fine. Rum is quite smooth and not sweet at all because of the bitter taste of coffee (in a good way) which is very interesting.
I recommend everyone to try this rum.
Tried a glass of Dictador 100 Cafe while vacationing in Versailles. So and so bottle and label design. Very deep color. Super strong coffee straight to the nose. Alcohol and stale coffee to your palate. Burn at the end. Add 2 points if you like coffee, or go directly with Santa Teresa Araku which is much better.
This is really not my cup of coffee. The rum maybe is not that bad, but there is a lot of intense coffee in aroma a so in the taste, that it beats everything else. When I want that much coffee feeling I would rather go for a nice shot of espresso.
