Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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
Smell: Spicy, pepper, leather, some vanilla, warm.
I rather like sweet rums, which is why it doesn't suit my taste, but it has a high recognition value.
Taste: Spicy and warm, again pepper, vanilla and leather, slight bitterness in the finish and warm afterburn.
The rum has its lovers, I lack the sweetness and the fruits.
That doesn't change the fact that it's a good rum.
Material: Sugar Cane Honey
Age: 20 (real years, not just solera years)
Solera, but just the angels share (evaporation loss) will be filled up with same aged rum
Barrels: American oak barrels (bourbon)
Master Blender: Hernan Parra
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.
Now this is some tasty stuff. When I reviewed the dictador 12 year I already said that the two are not to compare at all. This one is so smooth, almost silkish and sweet with a fine and pleasant burn. Rum as sweet as the Colombian women!!
Overall disappointed with this. Dominated by oak & vanilla on the nose. Oak & coffee dominate the plate. Still very enjoyable, & not a bad rum by any stretch. But for the price I would expect more.
dryer overall than bajan rums, demerara... perhaps a bit pricey unless you really like this style.
The slightest little bit of complexity from the 12 year is gone in this one, although it does taste less like straight syrup than the 12 year. Not a good rum.
Fľaška rumu má luxusný dizajn a krásnu matnú fľašu s korkovým zátkom.
Nie je príliš sladký s karamelovou chuťou. Pije sa ľahko, nie je cítiť alkoholový dozvuk. Vôňu a chuť má príjemnú jemne dymovú, cítiť zrenie v dubovom sude.
Za tie peniaze som čakal, ale trošku viac, ale to bude aj tým, že mám radšej sladšie rumy. Kto má rad suchšie rumy bude mu určite vyhovovať a navyše sa nemusí obávať rannej opice :)
Very very tasty rum - better then 12yo - less coffe taste.
The flavor is close to Dictador 12 year. However, this one has more mild taste and rich.
It has nice chocolate, coffee and custerd flavor. and also has the flavor of wood.
Both are delicious rum for me. I rated 12 year as "8" so this is "8.5".
This is a very sweetened rum that is basically a very young rum adulterated with sugar . Not a great drink on ice and lacks any flavour depth
The twelve year old, grown up. Whatever good can be said about the Dictador 12 years, can be said of the 20, in a higher degree. This is not a mixer. Sip it. Very pleasant aroma and smooth on the tongue, nice and sweet the way I like'm, very much in the Latin tradition of rum making. Only wish the pleasant taste would last longer on the palate.
N- Trying to work out the math on how much 20 years liquid left in the solera cask when drawn, but feeling quite depressed when look at the decimal points.... Anyway, the creamy stuff are much better than the 10YO, thought I think both have more or less the same aged liquid but the intensity of the aged cask could make a different to the vat. Latte, more toffee and caramel. Still quite light after breath without excessive sugar and pleasant with pickled ginger. (85/19)
P- Light, sweetness that balanced with emerging sour fruits. Spice of anise, cinnamon and clove with dried fruits of raisin and mango. (85/19)
F- Medium, feel more natural oak sweetness in this one. Subtle pepper, salt and sour notes that goes along quite nicely. (86/20)

Fantastisches Aroma. Sehr kräftig und ein Rum der jedem Whiskytrinker gefallen wird.
Simply great! Contains all the things I like with a good Rum in a single bottle. How people can "dislike" this goes over my head..
Betydlig bättre än 12-åriga. Även här bränt socker. Behöver luftas lite
