Conserva el sabor de las barricas y sabe amaderado. No obstante ls notas fuertes que conserva le matizan mucho el sabor de la madera, siendo esas notas muy deliciosas que hacen de este ron único en su sabor. Identificarlo en una cata sería facil porque tiene un aroma muy especial

The new bottle is different to my old expressions. It's so full of cocoa, this has nothing in common with the old blend. I can't taste the heavy and light mix anymore.
I read in another reviews also some notes of chocolate and cocoa. I think all Dictadors have changed, this could be beause they toasted their casks heavier.

This rum has a recognition value but I can't taste the mix of heavy and light rums anymore (it's pot still + column still blend). It needs 30min in the glas until it opens the aromas.
The flavor profile is not very unique anymore, the old one was better.

Smell: cocoa ***, dry fruits **, some vanilla, fruits, caramel
Taste: cocoa, dry fruits (plum, peach), vanilla, wood, caramel, spice
Very nice aftertaste with floral notes

Country: Columbia
City: Cartagena

Age: 20 years. Solera, but just the angels share (evaporation loss) will be filled up with younger rums (some times ago with same age rums)

Master Blender: Hernan Parra

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Spice: 3/5
Fruits: 3/5
Mildness: 3.5/5
Value (45€): 3/5 the old value was 3.5/5

Tak veľmi som sa tešil na 20 ročný Dictator,sklamal má fakt moc. Je fakt pikantný,suchsi a neprišiel mi vyvážený. Časom ho vyskúšam znova a uvidime,či zmením hodnotenie

Smell is magical. But taste not so special. Still good but was expecting more after the first scent. Sweet licorice taste.

Black bottle = hidding something. They keep you uptight but no surprise insight. Never more for me

Impressive black packaging and black bottle to match. The rum had a dark mahogany colour and a different nose of coffee and anise. It has a complex taste matching the nose with a light burn. I paid $85 after the LCBO dropped the price by $30.

Magical aroma, no easy to understand how can it smell like that. Perfect taste and beautiful color, it keeps being one of my favorit ones.

What is 20 years in this rum? It's like a 5 year rum. Strong alcohol flavour.

Better in every aspect than his 12y brother. Aroma of coffee, nuts and vanilla. In taste continue flavours of nuts, coffee, tobacco, vanilla and oak. Very smooth.

Dictador rums are quite nice for my taste and this is no exception. Very nice smell, hints of walnut, coffee, slight tobacco. Probably not the most complex 20yr old rum I tasted but a great amd smooth one.
