Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Wenn Du dran riechst, fällst Du in ein tiefes dunkles Fass,
einfach nur fantastisch ! Nicht für Jedermann !
in der Nase: Holz, Leder, dunkle Schokolade, wie beim 12 Y, nur intensiver.
Im Gaumen wird es dann schon komplexer, dazu kommt Kaffee mit Gewürzen
und überraschenderweise Curry, gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber um so länger der Genuss
umso besser wird dieser Rum.
Mein Favorit an kalten Wintertagen, im Sommer zu deftig.
When you smell it, you fall into a deep dark barrel,
Just fantastic! Not for everyone!
In the nose: wood, leather, dark chocolate, as with the 12 Y, only more intense.
In the palate, it becomes more complex and comes with coffee and spices and surprisingly curry,
Need of getting used to, but the longer the enjoyment the better is this rum.
My favorite on cold winter days, in the summer too hearty.
I love to pop the cork on a bottle of Dictador 20 year old and jut smell the aromas wafting upwards. The first you will notice is the strong coffee scent, almost kaluha like that initially greets you. Creamy toffee and banana are interlaced in there as well.
Pouring a glass is a treat with it's dark, rich appearance....swirling the glass produces lovely long legs and more enticing aromas of Coffee, bananas, toffee and tobacco.
A very lovely rum to sip over ice indeed and even mixes very well with coke if you are so inclined.
My son bought this for me for Father's Day (what a great son!). I have never had Dictador Rum before and my first taste I got a rich full flavour of carmel, vanilla and roasted coffee. You don't want to waste this Rum with Pepsi. All this needs is 2 glasses, ice, and my son.
Alkohol: 40 %
Ochutnán ve srovnávacím testu s D 12, XO Perpetual a XO Insolent.
Aroma: Hutnější a hřejivější verze přímo srovnávaného Dictador 12 yo. Je tu znatelný ústup kávy a vyznění se nám posouvá k hřejivé kořenitosti. Těžší dřevitost, skořice, čokoláda, kakao. (88 b)
Chuť: Kakao, hřejivost koření, lehce se nám ozve mírná nasládlost, ale jen jemně, suchost převládá. Na jazyku příjemně plný, olejnatý dojem, je zrát, že se jedná o vyzrálý rum. (86 b)
Shrnutí: Příznivcům suchého stylu opět velmi doporučeníhodné.
You should say, from its bottle, that it will be very good rum. But that is not true sadly. This rum have a quite good taste, but it longs just a few seconds and it´s gone. That´s a shame, from 20yo rum...
Well I'm an 18 year old who in contrary to literally every one of my friends enjoys good alcohol instead of drinking it for the sake of getting wasted. At first I bought it for my father as a present. He really liked it and so did I and shortly I just bought one for myself. I sadly don't have a lot of experience concerning rum but I'll get to compare it to the Cubaney Centenario soon which I ordered yesterday.
Had in BK. Good. Neat.............................
Got quite excited after tasting it's younger brother (the 12 Y.O.), so I obviously expected too much before sipping this one.
I don't mention that as an introduction to be followed by a comparison between them.
Both are nice and overall qualitative Rums. If you can spend the extra money, go for this one, at least once. It's more classy.
Personally, I wasn't able to justify the price difference.
Promised myself to try the "Insolent" edition and if necessary update both previous reviews...
first of all i was attracted to the bottle. high standard looking rum. sweet caramel and koffee flavors...
From Cartagena. Inside of this black bottle, you can find the history taste of my city. Vanilla from the barrels included
Smooth rum. Very sweet maple finish. One of my go to night caps
Very nice rum, vanilla, honey and cofee. I recommend this rum!
I was drawn to the name of this rum thinking it might be some gimmick but quickly found out this is some good rum! Just slightly more burn with an ounce less sweetness as El Dorado 21 Year Rum. Great vanilla, smoky, oak, and caramel.
To much caramel and oak for me. Maybe with coke or a lot of ice.
DICTADOR 20. Another bottler I just finish from Cartagena Colombia . I will begin by stating for the record that a wonderful rum like this 20 Year Old SOLERA SYSTEM may easily be drank neat at room temperature this would be my recommendation for anyone who is trying this rum for the first time. Is very complex and is easy to taste the waltnut flavoring if sipped. Very enjoyable.
The Dictador rum's really got there own thing going, and the 20 year is no exception. The nose has a darkish profile with notes of liqourice, oak, coffee and a hint of honey. The palate is medium bodied and unfolds with a nutty expression of the same notes found in the nose. Compared to the 12 year, the taste seems a little more subtle. The smooth, but also slightly bitter, finish lingers for a long time and leaves your mouth coated with an oily feeling. It's ok but the 12 year is better value, and to me also more enjoyable and better balanced.
Distillerie : Destileria Colombiana
Provenance : Colombie
Ce rhum Dictador 20 ans est un rhum dit "traditionnel" qui nous vient de Colombie. Passé les nombreuses médailles qu'il a raflé en 2012 -et sa bouteille au look novateur- il faut dire ce qui est : c'est un Excellent rhum!
Vieillis selon la méthode de la Solera dans des fûts de chêne, il possède une richesse aromatique (certes complexe) hors norme.
Passé sa belle couleur cuivre oranger, on remarque d'entrée une douce odeur de café ; odeur qui reste et qui devient même encore plus forte une fois le verre vide. De la vanille, une odeur discrète de noix, une fraicheur fruitée assez intéressante et plaisante aussi.
En bouche on a l'impression de retrouver la même palette aromatique dans le même ordre, avec toujours ce café assez présent. L'attaque est soyeuse, tres agréable, végétale et finement boisée.
Le finale est long et les fleurs ont la part belle, ainsi qu'une pointe d'agrumes et une légère note fruitée.
Les amateurs du rhum Diplomatico apprécierons chaque gorgée de ce Dictador 20 ans ; il a même ma préférence, et ça ne changera pas tout de suite.
Love this Rum, smooth, butterscotch, sweet, full flavor, long finish... enjoy!
Very light molasses flavor with a small bit of burn on the back.
I was surprised by this rum, as it is different with nuts and coffee, minimum sweet but bitter. Alcohol is very very smooth and incorporated what I liked most. Elegant conclusion.
I started drinking rum instead of whiskey because of this rum, really good and well balanced between flavours and sweetness
The appearance in the glass is the standard caramel brown color, certainly not something one would expect after long aging (although 20 years + solera system = literally whatever in a practical sense).
The nose is warm, soft, sweet, inviting, fruity, some fresh dough, and a hint of a savory note resembling bacon.
The taste is strangely sweet, and since I am informed that there is no added sugar in this rum, it must be something else - fruit extract, perhaps? Notes of ripe apricots, ginger, marmelade, tamed by really meek oak presence. The mouthfeel is oily, full, almost syrupy, the finish is medium-length and pleasantly warm.
This is certainly a pleasant sipping rum, however that syrupy,fruity, sweet note does not seem quite natural.
Wonderful flavours. This rum is very smooth, warm and has a nice balanced Carmel flavour (not too sweet). This rum is perfect by itself and leaves you wanting another.
This 'was' a great bottle. I really have enjoyed the 12 year, despite its initial chemically smell and taste, just have to let it breathe for a while, better with time.This however was excellent from the bottle, a rich, not overly sweet advancement on the 12. For a little more, you are getting a seriously premium tasting rum.
