Voici un très bon rhum très doux,
Au nez, il est sur la vanille et l'amande. En bouche, on retrouve la douceur de la vanille et le miel. La finale est longue et agréable :)
A conseiller !!
Muss man sich erst ran trinken. Schmeckt etwas anders als die restlichen.
An tasty rum coffe and cacao flavour cuban cigar. Best served on the rocks.
Goute le biscuit feuille d’erable. Pas mauvais du tout mais pas pour l’usage général.
its a bit stronger whne you taste it with nice finish. nice smell
not sweet, but nice smell and good taste above average. Catching eyes bottle and I would recommend it to most of average Rum lovers
My initiation to this Columbian rum reveals mild aromas of chocolate and coffee. My first sip confirms that this rum is indeed different, in a pleasant way, from other rums I have sampled with coffee being ever present but not overpowering. The rum has a slight natural sweetness to it but not from added sugars and leaves a nice and warm aftertaste. Having previously sampled the Dictador 10 yr Rum, this is a much better rum.
Vůně karamelu, není nepříjemně silná na rozdíl od 20 letého rumu. V chuti koření, není to sladký rum, ale je to celkem příjemné. Mnohem lepší zážitek než vyzrálejší varianta.
What's up with Dictador rums and their sweet coffee taste? This 12yo juice is very flavorful...if you like coffee liqueur. There is no way that their rums all have the coffee profile by accident. I'm guessing that the bottling machines need a thorough cleaning. Maybe the Dictador people add some sort of sweetener and coffee extract(?). This is tasty, but it's not pure rum by anyone's guess.
Not much on the nose. Chocolate, alcohol, tobacco and coffee on the tongue. It has a bit of a bite, but I'd call it quite harsh. There's a bitter sweetness to it...but the bitterness is stronger than the sweetness. Ok, but I won't be buying a bottle. For a bitter sweet rum, La Hechicera has way more depth.
Smakar lite vattnigt men luktar väldigt gott. Ingenting för hyllan hemma.
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".
Not bad at all, just nothing extraordanary.
Bitter sweet taste.
Finish rather short.
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+
not quite there, after tasting the 20 year old version. It has some of the characteristics of it older brother, but more pale, sharper, less defined. I love to citric notes on it, and I think could be great if consumed cooled during summer.
nez éthéré vanille banane
goût bois de réglisse cuir
I bought it, drunk it and liked it. It was ok but I am not planing to buy it again :)
Rum má neobvyklou vůni s nádechem ořechu, ale chuť je na můj vkus hodně lihová.
Tobacco, pecan fudge, caramel, fig... gut something is artificial tasting.
edited to add sugar test results- 0g Surprising
Looked good on the Shelf but you get what you pay for
I didnt like this one very much its like washed out 20y dictador. I would serve this on a formal occassion but not to a friend.
Beautiful bottle that implies a much nicer taste than you experience. It could work as a decent mixer but not something I would choose to sip on its own.
If I want coffee, I'll order coffee. Original rum but too much coffee and toffee.
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.
