Smell: Burned suggar, spices (some pepper), vanilla, warm alcohol
Taste: Paper, sweetness, vanilla, spices, cookies, sunflower seeds, bitterness
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.
Notes of walnut, oak on the nose. Caramel-y dlavor but not overly sweet. I do prefer the 20yr version but this is also a nice smooth Colombian rum.
A nice tasting sweet rum with a coffee aftertaste. Not a rum I would drink on a regularly basis, but more a rum for after dinner or on a cold night. I like this 12 year old rum better, much subtle than the 20 year old dictator.
If you do like liquorice indeed you should taste this one. I do not like it very much in rum, it covers a lot. Smell was more promising, no sweet in the mouth, a surprisingly short finish, no burn at all.
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 one is very good when you want to start to find your way to the drier rums. It is smooth with little bit of alcohol burn. In taste hints of vanilla, butter, coffe and nuts. End is relatively long with hint of oak.
This rum literally tastes like aunt jemima syrup mixed with harsh vodka. Zero complexity, the only saving grace is the sweetness and some smoothness
Not much on the nose. Chocolate, alcohol, tobacco and coffee on the tongue. It has a bit of a bite, but I'd call it quite harsh. There's a bitter sweetness to it...but the bitterness is stronger than the sweetness. Ok, but I won't be buying a bottle. For a bitter sweet rum, La Hechicera has way more depth.
I tried the slightly cheaper 12 after enjoying the Dictador 20. Sadly, the downgrade is noticeable on the taste front. Not a bad rum by any means, but not as enjoyable neat.
Not bad. The nose is like a coffe liqueur as somebody else noted. The body sweet. I would prefered something little bitter. The aftertaste is coffe with caramel notes. Its time to taste the 20th for more balance
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.
I gave "100 months coffe" 7 so I must give this one 6 as I would prefere coffe on one hand as liquer and 20yo as rum on the other hand. Its not that bad, but its not good as well. I would recomend you going for one of the other two common rums from this company.
Smell: wood, coffe, alcohol, a bit of fruit
Taste: Sharp, alcoholic, with notes of wood and coffe. Nothing extraordinery
As somebody who enjoys strong, black and sweet coffee, I cannot but like this rum. It may not rank among the top rums I know, but it does quite well both with ice as for sipping. Different, but still well within the Latin tradition of sweet rums. Definitely a keeper.
