Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum is surprising. The bottle hides the colour. The name is not inviting. It has a little of everything. A bit sweet, a bit vanilla, a bit caramel, a bit woody. Smooth enough. I don't know the price but I recommend it straight on the rocks or with Sprite.
A dry but very smooth rum. Not too sweet, with a lot of reckognizible flavors. Awesome.
I liked this rum. It had nice coffee, toffee, and chocolate notes. Sippable on some ice and made a really nice rum ball. Too bad it got discontinued in my area. Only negative was that it was a bit strong mid swallow but it had a warm finish.
Good body, maple flavour, smooth finish. Probably my favourite rum so far!
This very smooth rum is well-balanced. Not too sweet, one might even say a bit dry.
A lovely oak smokiness with honey, spices, coffee and some dry fruit.
Has a nice finish and aftertaste.
I personally recommend this as one of the starter rums and have noted that so far the Dictador 12 has pleased all whisky drinkers that I know. Combine this with the fact that this rum comes in one of the best looking bottles and I would categorize this rum as an ideal gift!
Excellent rum with a nice citrus taste and finish. Very sippable.
Sweet molasse, the way i like them. Splendid on the rocks.
I tried Dictador 12 before 20 and I really love it. Beautiful taste, wonderful aroma and good price. Very good balance
Nice find. For aroma this is incredible. Coffee and cocoa. Caramel. A pleasure for the nose. Serve in a large round glass over ice for full effect. Flavours are just as good. Wouldn't have guessed coffee and chocolate in a um would be a good sipper.
Edit: had my second bottle of this with a few different ones between and it stays near the top of my list.
Like it says in the box: smells lovely of maple syrup. Tastes warm and sweet (no sugar). Coffee aftertaste. Would buy again.
First old-aged rum i tasted and need to say the chocolate and coffee notes are really awesome. In taste it little burning (maybe too much), but as i said im starting my rum adventure :)
Aroma of roasted nuts and honey.
Taste with nuts again with hints of oak and smoke.
Two shots ahead of me. One 12 and one 20 y.o. Both are fine. Both are well distilled rums. But which is better? Sipping from 12, then from 20. 20 appears to have more rounded taste. But 12 is more sharp. I like those, but here? Really can't decide, maybe 20 is better by tiny little bit?
Un doux moment plaisir.
Des notes de vanille et café
Eine willkommene Abwechslung zu den vielen sehr süßen Rums. Ein klassischer und doch ganz besonderer Rum.
Un rom foarte distins, cu o aroma deosebita. Se simt nuante foarte puternice de tabac si cafea, spre final se simt arome de citrice si miere. Merita incercat.
Great notes of coffee on this rum
Nice butterscotch scent, sweet and mellow on the tongue, with no alcohol burn at all. This stuff could be dangerous! Goes down so smooth, the bottle might drain quickly if you don't pay attention!
Jedine, co me napadne je dub, silne aroma a citit v chuti. Prvni privoneni k nemu jako vada korku u vina, ale krasne se rozvonel, kazdopadne zajimavy.
Es un Ron dulce ideal para mezclarlo con refresco, tiene toques de vainilla.
Very beautiful bottle. After drinking coffee pleasant taste in the throat

(Revised) I revised the rating from a 7 to an 8. You can definitely get some coffee and nuts like some previous reviewers mentioned but honestly it seemed a little harsh for the price and age. However, with just a SMALL splash of water the edge is taken off but the taste remains. Also I found that once it got a chance to breathe the taste improved immensely. The coffee taste really is fantastic and different. Definitely do yourself a favor and pick a bottle up if you can find one.
