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.

First off, it is a wonderfully smooth rum with a good kick of alcohol in the tail, that gives a good length. It also helps prevent what is quite a sweet rum from being cloyingly sweet. And for me it is that sweetness that is its biggest fault. That's being a tad harsh, as in the scheme of things, there are far sweeter rums than this. It does detract a bit from the wonderful and multi-dimensional nose dominated by honey and coffee notes, which carries onto the palate.

A really good rum, that is just a wee bit too sweet for me.

Those Rum connoisseurs who like to stock the well with "a cut above" need not look any further. This 12 Y.O. Dictador is very tasty and can be consumed straight up when necessary. My favorite all round rum considering price and flavour. I mean really; 10 bucks for this smooth baby?

Surprisingly tasty rum, acceptably sweet but still without added sugar. Nice but maybe strong cofee aroma. Better to leave poured in a glass before sipping. Finally one of my favourite rums, moreover for a reasonable price.

Compared to 20y it was quite disappointing experience. Not complex enough, kinda lacking afterburn, too much coffee (even I'm ok with it).

Voici un rhum très sympa aux arômes de café, tiramisu. Il n'est pas sucré c'est un rhum plutôt sec sans acidité, l'alcool est présent sans être envahissant. En finale on retrouve le café sur des notes plus douces et toujours sans le côté grillé. Cependant, c'est un rhum fabriqué et bricolé par l'ajout de tout un tas de choses pas très naturelles....

Es un Ron dulce ideal para mezclarlo con refresco, tiene toques de vainilla.

My favorite has been Plantation XO for a while, and this rum gets pretty close. Very smooth, slightly less body than the Plantation. A little bit more alcohol smell but not overpowering. I would purchase again.

Mir gefällt dieser Rum sehr gut. Hat eine leicht merkliche Kaffeenote die zusammen mit der leichten Süße einen wunderbar runden Geschmack ergibt. Dieser Rum landet in meiner Bar!

Un rhum assez doux. Bonne longueur en bouche.
Très agréable pour tous.
