Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
If I want coffee, I'll order coffee. Original rum but too much coffee and toffee.
Purchased it when it was on a big discount. Figured out why! This stuff burns a bit too much. Surprisely, the distillery makes a gin and ages it in their rum barrels. That is fantastic and one of my favs.
Tail:medium lasting, but tasty,
I would say slightly upper average rum, the acrid feeling I had from this rum is one of a kind.
Een heel mooi en lekker rum past goe met een milde sigaar 👍👍👍
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”
i guess for the price, you'd have lower expectations but this one is a delight... for the price.
depending on where you are, the prices may vary but where i am, this is fairly cheap compared to other rums in the market.
for the price, you get a good quality rum at very low price point.
i keep saying good value, low prices... but the liquid is actually very good itself.
had a vertical tasting of the brand's portfolio and 12 wasn't too shabby compared to it's brethren.
Un gout assez prononcer et complexe mélange de noix, vanille et café. Différent des autres rhums déjà bu. Le gout reste longtemps en bouche. Très bon en dégustation et agréable.
This was my favorite, with a late sweet warm finish, but have since found more smooth and more complex rums with less burn.
and very sippable neat. i am not fussy on the bottle like others here are, but to each their own.
While it doesn't match the complexity and longevity of it's older brother, it is still worth buying. The Dictador range has a distinct taste to it - not quite as sweet as a lot of the crowd pleasers out there. Hints of citrus and liquorice.
Excellent rum with a nice citrus taste and finish. Very sippable.
Well, this one was made just for me. Smooth abd mellow, oily palate. Spices, cinammon, honey on nose. Great.
De beaux arômes de caramel, fruits à coque, le tout tenu par une note boisée longue en bouche. Assez sec dans l'ensemble. Belle prestation.
Spicy scent but rather neutral, well rounded taste.
Un doux moment plaisir.
Des notes de vanille et café
Un rhum avec des notes de bois fumé, de café et de fruits torréfiés. Il a son identité!
Pas forcément à mon gout, mais joli rhum tout de même!
First taste tonight so I'll have to give it some time to see how I really like it. Love the packaging, very smooth rum, not too sweet, almost a burnt sugar aftertaste. I will be going back for more soon.
J'ai trouvé dans cette quille, une legere note de café, plutot ambré light, une belle réussite colombienne.
Sweet molasse, the way i like them. Splendid on the rocks.
On est dans le rum sucré, mélasse!
C'est bon à moin de ne pas aimer le sucre!
Si on aime le Diplomatico Exclusiva reserva et qu'on pensse avoir le meilleur rapport qualité-prix, ce rum nous offre une saveur nouvelle exquise!
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.
There is a lot of tobacco and smoke on this one + what seems like cherry cough syrup. It has a little harshness to it but not much.
I do like it but it is not an everyday drink to me; more of a mood rum.
You should try this Dictador 12 on the ice, it is better this way IMO. For me there is too much coffe and oak tones.
Anyway this is one of the better products from Colombia which owned investors from Poland ;-)
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!
un vrai sentiment de café et du coup on se demande d'où vient ce parfum...
sinon, très plaisant, rond et gourmand...
un de mes premier achat pour ma "cave", que je consomme toujour avec plaisir meme si ce n'est pas le plus grand des rhums
