Tasty, but not quite great
Ok, this was one of my first bottles... I also love Colombia, so this Ron is somewhat special to me.
First of all, forget about the 12 years, this is a Solera Ron, so maybe (just maybe) a tiny little fraction of the liquid is somewhat 12 "periods" of ageing long. As most other Dictador types of Ron the notes of coffee are quite prevalent, chocolate beans, buts, molasses... lots of molasses, and, added sugar... I wouldn't be surprised if I found some coffee grains here and there in the top barrels of their stockpile, but that's just my speculation.
I like it because as opposed to other Rones in the category, this one isn't shy of alcohol and strength, it is not persistent (not at all, too sugary to last long) but at least for some moments once you sip it gives you the idea that "yes it means something".
My favourite rum, my precious, for a long time, it has this special smell and taste, that i can sense in the middle of the night. Havent found better.
smell is like a cheap rum, similar to any major rum brand such as Bacardi. Taste is much better, it's middle of the road, not great but not horrible. Rich and buttery taste. Not much alcohol burn on the aftertaste. Pretty smooth. 80+
.....ale jo originální rum to je, jasně káva tam cítit je, ale v chuti cítim i jakousi slanost, jakoby Maggi nebo Klasik, takové to tekuté ochucovadlo do polévek či co :) Mě se osvědčilo tento rum pít pouze samostatně, tedy neochutnávat jiné rumy během jednoho večera, pak jakože ok....ale tento rum si už pořizovat nebudu.
Dark color. Nosing dominated by notes of raisins and caramel. Palate reveals strong flavors of milk chocolate combined with notes of sherry. The finish is quite sweet. Overall a typical sweet Spanish-style-rum. Rated this rum with a 5 as the sweetness is suspicious for added sugar.
