Recommendable to most
I’d probably rate this rum an 8 on the nose alone. The Intoxicating aroma of caramel/toffee really set the stage & the warming caramel & maple syrup tones on the palate were quite enjoyable. I assume this has a decent dose of sugar added, but I still found it to be super delish!
Not much to say about this rum. I just didn't find anything spectacular about it. Nothing especially bad either. More expensive than a Diplomatico, but deffinitely not better.
This is quite a unique rum with coffee notes both on the nose and palate together with oak, maple syrup and milk chocolate. What a nice dram. It tastes amazing on a old fashioned but I would keep it neat as the price for a bottle is quite high.
First Dictador tasting been reading good things about them. Very smooth rum first taste of caramel on my tongue, reminiscent of Papa Pilar in a much better way. Pilar taste fake and I want to pour it on my pancakes only. This is much more refined and enjoyable. After trying again leaves a strange aftertaste and initial caramel tastes artificial. Not for me at this price point.
Already in aroma you can detect typical Dictador tone. Taste is smooth, sweeter with coffee and chocolate tones. Aftertaste is average. Better than 12y but not too much.
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.
If you've had the 12yo, this is like that but more!
The nose is prune-like Christmas cake, which is carried through on the palate, along with hints of coffee. It is incredibly smooth, with the hit of alcohol coming at the back end. A beautiful long finish.
It may not be everyone's style, but even if not, the high class of distilling should be plain to see.
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.
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...
"It has a reasonable amount of alcohol burn to reassure you it is a 40% spirit. It’s more like a kind of sherried flavoured vodka. I’m sure such a drink exists somewhere."
