Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Nice rum with pleasant and rich nose producing 3 main components: coffee, cane sugar and pecan nuts. Pleasant and easy-going, sweet but having surprisingly short aftertaste as for 20 yo distillate.
Nose: Sweet, thick, coffee, brown sugar, pecan nuts, caramel, vanilla, hint of cinnamon
Palate: Sweet, slightly spicy (ginger, cloves, cardamom), latte, caramel, honey notes, herbs with light bitterness, oak on the background
Finish: Short, sweet, somewhat dry, oaky, notes of dried dark fruits
Der Rum ist recht mild und weich und nicht sehr süss. Für mich schmeckt er recht penetrant nach Nüssen, finde ich irgendwie komisch, trifft nicht ganz mein Geschmack.
One of the best rums I've had - noting that I've never gone very far upscale with my rums... still, this is very similar to Pyrat in taste, which is what, 4 times cheaper? The one bottle I did get my hands on was mistakenly mispriced, however, and I snagged it for $40. My first and last taste of Dictador.
Just tasted this Dictador 20y old. I was curious, read about that the the 12y old is as good as the 20y. I like the 20y old, last long and keeps me warm.
I was excited to bring home the Dictator and pop the top. The nose Vanilla, honey, leather and clove. Cookie dough flavors on first sip, more vanilla some heat and it's gone. Initially got some cachaca flavors which I guess is due to the fact that this is not a Molasses based rum. Rather quick finish. This will be second or third pour with a cigar.
I got a bottle of this at Dorignacs in New Orleans, LA on a major rum buying spree (they have a lot of rums I never saw locally). The aroma in the bottle is wonderful...definitely caramel overtones that unfortunately do not transfer over as well in regards to flavor. Don't get me wrong, this is an excellent rum just not worth the asking amount for the solera aged rum. I think about $10-$15 less would be better. However with that said the rum has more oak flavor than one would expect from a 20 year rum...even a solera system rum but it's not harsh either. It has a mild sweetness and a warmth in the back of the throat...no burn. It is a complex rum and it is SO close to a 9 but I just couldn't put it in that category. Maybe it will grow on me. On a more lighthearted note, I do like the design of the bottle...I could see Captain Jack Sparrow grabbing this bottle. Definitely pirate-esque.
Intense toffee taste at first and then the age bits you (in a good way). Then a lot of alcohol.
Tastes more mature than the 12 yr old but not a lot better.
The bottle is cool.
I'm not expert yet but this bottle was disappointment for me. I expected more from 20 years rum. Taste contains very strong coffee/oak tones with harsh finish. Maybe my expectations were high. Marketing of this bottle is higher than real taste.
Plus direct, punchy et raide que son petit frere de 12, je trouve ce rhum beaucoup plus profond au niveau des aromes. Le nez est plus courts mais les saveurs moins altérées par le sucre.
The wonderful oak and caramel syrup. Long aftewards, I can taste coffee and chocolate. Is extremely well crafted and balanced.
I am not sure why but the rum tasted a bit like nuts? I prefer sweeter rum, but beside this the rum was pretty intense, flavorful...
Comme son petit frère le Dictador 12, ce rhum est un vraiment délicieux.
Premières notes, au nez, il est pâtissier et plus complexe. En bouche, il est rond et très équilibré. Enfin, la finale est très intéressante et d'une belle longueur.
Je le conseille vivement, c'est un excellent rhum :)
Note : 65/100
I am not an expert... I am just a guy that wanted to find the 'best rum to sip on a Saturday evening...'.
This is one of the ones I bought ($50). It's great... but not as good as a Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva... yet it has a similar angle.
Une jolie bouteille, soyeuse au toucher et totalement opaque. Elle révèle un liquide de belle couleur ambrée. Le nez manque de richesse. La dégustation révèle immédiatement cette saveur de café retrouvée par tous, elle est en effet prédominante. Le reste est un peu pauvre. Manque d'intérêt.
Une marque 100% marketing, sans intérêt…. et sans distillerie !!???
