Beautiful bottle. Rum not as special. It is decent. Nothing remarkable. A bit spicy and hot.

If you hate things that are amazing then you can stop reading here...

Still with me? Okay, this rum is spectacular. It's packed with flavor and has a long smooth finish. I'll admit their ad campaigns look like terrible 90's perfume ads but the rum itself is great!
Color: Amber
Nose: Honey, coffee, and a little bit of oak and spices
Taste: Carmel, honey, maple, and fruit. This thing is practically dessert

According to rum-geek D.N. Bascunan, the reason that Dictador rums all have that weird licorice/coffee profile is because most of the time they bottle Colombian aguardiente, which is heavily anise-infused. When they get around to bottling their rum, that anise flavor is still in the pipes and it doesn't go away. The result: flavored rum...licorice and coffee, to be exact. Hard to take this rum seriously. Weird taste, too sweet, one-dimensional. No thank you.

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.

Balanced flavor and aroma. Mild, slightly sweet. Very good for me.

new to the whole rating game, but i found this rum to be very fragrant and flavorful. there is a rich sweetness like caramel that can easily take you away for a moment.

Im Geruch ein wenig Karamell, Vanille und ein bisschen Nuss- Toffee.
Farbe Schönes dunkles Bernstein,
Im Geschmack am Anfang Wallnuss, dann Toffee, Karamell, Kaffee mit einer fast nicht wahrnehmbaren natürlichen Süße und Holznote, im Abgang findet man die selben Noten mit ein wenig Alkohol.
Sehr rund alles zusammen, sehr gut.

Fazit: ein ganz anderes Geschmackserlebnis als die von mir bis jetzt gekosteten Rumsorten und nicht süß !
Gefällt mir sehr gut das ganze, sehr gut !
Ein neuer Rum unter meinen Besten. Wird nachgekauft und hat einen fixen Platz in meiner Sammlung ! TOP !

The 20 year old Dictador uses the Solera method that consists of the mixing of barrels of different ages in order to obtain better development of flavour. Rum barrels from 14 to 24 years old are mixed giving an average of 20 years old.
