Très agréable pour tous.

Toujours débutant en dégustation de rhum, je dois dire que c'est celui qui me reste en bouche le plus longtemps. Très bon gout épicé et doux qui se prolonge encore et encore. Très agréable et pas du tout agressif. A découvrir pour tout nouvel adepte dans ce monde du rhum !

Tant par sa bouteille noire que par l originalite de son gout.ce rhum tant par sa bouteille originale que don gout atypique est a avoir en tant que collectionneur.son nez tres puissant sur des notes d anis et surtout de cafe.ces notes se confirment en dehustation.cerhum est doux sec et se rapproche presque d un wisky.le cafe prend le dessus et c est agreable.ce n est pas mon prefere mais il vous fera voyager au pays du cafe: la colombie. Note 7.2.

This rum has notes of coffee, honey, smoke, cinnamon, oak, vanilla, spice, and rubber. It's a little dry for a rum, which is fine, but it also feels a little harsh to me, as do most of the Dictador rums. I'm not sure if it's just me that notices this; maybe it's the spice? Good, but not one of my favorites.

Very thick, oily consistency, orange and brown sugar with great amount spice - just right. Long finish that lingers, but with the oil a little too long even with a splash of water.

My understanding of this 12 year rum is not that the oldest rum is 12 years rather this is some type of average (according to a Dictador rep) from rums between 8 and 14 years old. After all blending is said and done equals 12 years of age.

I just cracked open a 12 year old bottle after finding it in a local release with a great price and never actually seeing it in store before. This bottle came in a coaster box meaning just that... a half inch cardboard coaster. The bottle has a natural cork.

My initial thoughts here... Nosing nothing unexpected very subdued alcohol, coffee, cinnamon buns, vanilla, butterscotch, some fruit.

The tasting..

Very forward in the entire palate and back of the throat. After the initial blast which I consider to be a slight burn with slight spice near the end the flavors develop and is completely smooth by its exit. The initial entry is quite a surprise to me as is the burn for a 40% spirit. The main flavors I get are somewhat complex in their change from butterscotch, vanilla, dark chocolate, ending with a sweet caramel finish with forward distinct coffee flavor?

I find if I leave this one in the mouth too long before a swallow that the burn on the tongue is quite obvious and even so harsh that it destroys the flavors of the finish. Best swallow this one fast! Leaving it out to breath a good while helps to mellow this attribute.

The sweetness and coffee on the finish can be tasted for quite some time.

Rum Dictador pochází z města Cartagena de Indias, ležícího na karibském pobřeží. Zraje solera systémem v dubových sudech po dobu nejméně dvanácti let. Vyroben je z panenské šťávy cukrové třtiny. Lákavě vypadající černá lahev byla navržena v Japonsku.
Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Kolumbie
Aroma: Vůně je hutná, skvěle vyvážená, ale ne těžká. Jedná se o zajímavý mix kávy, sušené pomerančové kůry, kůže, karamelu, vanilky, kakaa a čokolády. Se sklenkou si můžete pohrávat dlouho a hledet a objevovat jednotlivé vůně. (87 b)
Chuť: Začátek je jemný, uhlazený, až hebký, sladkost veskrze žádná, dojem z chuti je velmi suchý, kakakový,jemně štiplavý, jemně káva a Kofila, dozvuk dřevitý až lehce kouřový. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Dictador 12y je ideální pro ty, kdo hledají protipól sladkých až přeslazených rumů, svou suchostí by je mohl oslovit. Svým charakterem nemá ani daleko k některým koňakům. Kolumbie se svým rumem nezklamala, odteď se mi při vyslovení Kolumbie vybaví už i kvalitní rum. V nabídce značky jsou i dražší a starší verze 20y, Dictador XO Perpetual a Dictador XO Insolent.
Body: 86

Excellent moonshine, folks.
But the box...it looks like you’re buying a perfume!
