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)

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.
As a rule I don’t venture into flavoured spirits, Van Gogh Double Espresso Vodka being the exception. I have had my eye on Dictador Cafe 100 Rum for some time and I recently sampled this Columbian flavoured Rum. On the nose the coffee aroma is prominent and promising. The taste, however was a bit of a letdown for me and while a small sample was enjoyable and would be fine as a desert drink, I could not see myself drinking a regular sized portion on any given night.
