Tak tenhle rum me zaujal jen nazvem. To co je v lahvy uz tak zajimavy neni.
Makes a great rum espresso martini. As a sipper the overpowering coffee notes on the nose and palate make this very one dimensional.
Argh, ce rhum présentait bien et j'étais curieux de goûter et puis.... Paf, ce goût de réglisse..
Faut aimer, moi perso impossible.
Compared to 20y it was quite disappointing experience. Not complex enough, kinda lacking afterburn, too much coffee (even I'm ok with it).
There is sooo much wrong with this rum omg! This is one of the worst rums I've ever tasted! Completely different than the older brother of 20 years. Not even comparable!
This rum literally tastes like aunt jemima syrup mixed with harsh vodka. Zero complexity, the only saving grace is the sweetness and some smoothness
Nice one, the 21 is better... This is nothing special...
I was really looking forward to trying this but I really didn't enjoy it at all.
Kein süsser rum, etwas scharf, kein bleibender eindruck und auch kein besonderer oder gar langer abgang - kurz um (wie schon im titel geschrieben): nuchtssagend. Werde trotz allem den grossen bruder versuchen - hoffe der kann dann mehr.
A very strange tasting rum with poor balance. Lots of coffe in the taste, works for me only as a drink rum.
I personnaly don't like this one because the tobacco aroma is to strong for me. I wouldn't recommand it!
I like smooth and sweet rums and Dictador is neither of them. For me it tastes too smoky, sharp and has also a bitter taste.
I think It is quality rum but not mean for me.
Someone offered me to taste the 12y, to turn me around about my opinion on Dictador rums. It is less bad than 20y which is less bad than XO Insolent, but the artificial coffee flavoring or whatever additive they use kills this product.
God blød duft. Desværre er smagen små kedelig og meget kort.
Well over 700 aged rums tasted during the past 15 years and I had very high expectations on the Dictador rum family. The Dictador 12 year was a big disappointment to me. Flavor profile is very cluttered, smell is off putting and a very strong afterburn leads me to believe that the 12 and 20 year old Dictadors have a very long way to reach the maturity of the XO brands.
I can't say anything good about this rum. The small is boring and the taste was like a home brewed snaps. Sorry to say.
Dans la lignée de don papa, épais dans le verre et medicamenteux en bouche
D'un ambré foncé avec des reflets roux, ce rhum présente au nez des arômes de cacao et de vanille (légère) qui virent finalement vers l'amer. La bouche rappelle ce goût amer et amène de légères pointes de café.
Nose: Eh? Should this smell like the rubbery stuff the bottle is coated in – probably not, but it does. Weird. When the smell of latex catsuit (don’t ask) goes away there is some coffee in there, think roasted beans rather than brewed. Some smoky tobacco and prunes, quite earthy. Caramel and some vanilla too. Smells “manufactured”.
Palate: Let’s hope this is better. Argh! That rubber again, where does that come from?! Well, mouth-feel is pretty good at least – quite oily. Ah, better now; dry actually, I was expecting a sweeter rum. Smoky again, earthy leaves and raisins. Not really much oak. Honey on burnt toast and then some of that coffee (brewed and black this time) as it moves to the finish.
Finish: Short to medium and no rubber, phew. Ends sweeter than the palate and has some bitter oak as it tails off, smoky again.
Thoughts? Minus to rubber and coffee this would be a very ubiquitous rum, and I think I’d prefer that to what they've done to it to give it “character”
Quite possible single worse rum sampled. Spit it out in front of company rep. Such a disgusting flavor and extremely harsh. Begs the question "are you truly aged or chemically aged?"
Oh no. Shamelessly flavoured. Butterscotch? Plums? Im guessing some kind of fruit. At least its not sweet.
Not estery and I can’t find oak despite the rum being quite dark
Its a good semi-liquor. I can see it being a great cocktail modifier but it shouldn’t be labeled as rum.
If I had a choice I would leave the rating blank.
