Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Nose: Let the rum breathe for a while, then discover some aromatic oakwood and maple syrup (although they don‘t add lots of sugar)
Palate: Begins a bit sharp, but not harsh, and a tiny bit oily. Finishes with some hints of tobacco, roasted coffee beans and oak. Very pleasant, lasts pretty long.
Positive: Comes in a black bottle: you don‘t have to lock it away from light.
Sugar: only 0-5 gpl
This rum made me learn, that also a ‚dry‘ rum with very little sugar added can taste pretty sweet.
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
enorm smaak pallet heerlijk om puur te drinken. heel kruidig.
...but inside is a bit chemical aftertaste and harshness. I expected something more (according bottle).Not cold is even worse.
Sugar: 0 to 5 gpl. This rum smelled good but it was too harsh for my liking. Too much tobacco and oak for me. I also detected a chemical aftertaste. As I don't like rum with ice, I finished the bottle by mixing it with eggnog at Christmas. I would not buy this again as the price was too high for the taste.
denne rom er afviger fra mængden, med sin ret så dominerende næse og smag af tobak. herudover opleves karamel og en lille tilpas tørhed. sjov og anderledes.
Au nez sa sent le tiramisu, le gateau opera, En bouche leggeremen vanille, chocolat, cafe, et surtout reglisse, il est beaucoup moin fort en charpente et en gout franc que sont grand frere le 20ans maintenant il me parait ideal en fin de repas derrier un cafe
Amazing nose on this one. Was very smooth on the rocks. Sampled it at the rum club in Portland. I'd highly recommend this to any rum fans.
Great aroma with sweet notes that makes me think of dark maple syrup. The rum has good body and a medium sweetness. As indicated in the nose, the palette offers notes resemblent of dark maple syrup. This is supplemented by a little bit of barrel and coffee. The finish is overall smoothe and a tad dry. I find this rum to be slightly unique and good value. Cool bottle.
This is a great into for those curious about sipping rums, good price, nice depth of flavors with a smooth finish. On the sweeter side.
I intend to always keep a bottle in the collection for those times I don't want to be challenged, like a comfort food.
A unique bottle,feels like rubber,high quality box.
The rum itself is extremely smooth, rich in the nose,one of the best i ever tasted.Mild,but deep aromas
A lovely smelling sweet rum. Nice golden color and just enough bite.
tres sympa, rond en bouche avec un arime de cafe !
Very nice smooth rum. Notes caramel an coffe . Very good Choice for this . price
Smooth and nice long flavours including great notes of caramel
Argh, ce rhum présentait bien et j'étais curieux de goûter et puis.... Paf, ce goût de réglisse..
Faut aimer, moi perso impossible.
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?"
Distinctive and rich rum see my full review at
A dry but very smooth rum. Not too sweet, with a lot of reckognizible flavors. Awesome.
Für seinen Preis ein echt guter Rum.
Kaffee dominiert im Aroma und auch im Geschmack. Leichte Schokoladennote und eine gewisse süße ist wahrnehmbar.
Great notes of coffee on this rum
Not the smoothest rum you will taste (compared to El Dorado 12) but still a decent rum. I prefer it mixed with Cola but it can be used on the rocks. Depends what it on your bar. If you have a higher end rum this won't live up to expectations. If you have the cheap stuff then this will be far superior.
