Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I was drawn to the name of this rum thinking it might be some gimmick but quickly found out this is some good rum! Just slightly more burn with an ounce less sweetness as El Dorado 21 Year Rum. Great vanilla, smoky, oak, and caramel.
This an epic Colombian rum, a well kept secret: it's smooth and have some notes of vanilla and caramel... it's also a good purchase: 40 us a bottle.. try it.
This rum kinda grew on me. At first I wasn't sold at all. Nowadays it's a safe option for sipping.
I love this rum. Its coffee and caramal flavours are stunning. Its so very smooth.
Treba pochváliť vizuálnu stránku celého balenia rumu. Originálna krabica z tvrdého kartónu, moderná fľaša je síce stále tá istá, ale ako celok pôsobí veľmi pekne. Rum má tmavšiu, svetlohnedú farbu. Je to zmes rôzne starých rumov v systéme solera s priemerným vekom 20 rokov, zrejúca v dubových sudoch. V nose cítiť silnú dubovú arómu v sprievode s karamelom, sladkou vanilkou, škoricou. Vôňa sa v pohári postupne uvoľňuje, treba mu dopriať chvíľku postáť. Veľmi pekná, komplexná a vyvážená aróma. Rum je jemne sladký, v stupnici od 1-10 by som dal 6. Na jazyku cítiť karamel, hrozienka, kakao...v pozadí vystupuje dubová aróma. Celkovo je veľmi hladký, guľatý so stredne krátkou dochuťou. Veľmi príjemné pitie. Otvorene musím priznať, že som čakal od tohto rumu menej, nakoľko jeho mladší 12-ročný brat je podľa môjho názoru bieda.
I think this is currently a better exponent of the Solera method than the Ron Zacapa. I know, blasphemous! This doesn't feel that it has been adulterated with added sugar post distillation. Despite being quite old this isn't heavy on oak flavours, caramel and vanilla are more prominent. As is the case with a lot of solera and spanish style rums this is a lot lighter than the english style. But that doesn't mean it lacks complexity, in fact one of the great things about this is that it's extremely smooth and complex and there's enough to keep you interested each time you try it.
I tried this one couple of days ago and next day went to the same bar to have another two glasses... it is really great, one of the best I have had so far... very complex, sweeter side of spectrum yet very balanced, the smell is very gentle, disappears quickly but it is soooo nice I could inhale it for hours... the taste has some coffee and dark chocolate in it, the aftertaste is very mild and nice, it is a must to try this one! I would love a recommendation for a similar ones in its price range
Klart bedre en lillebror 12års. Mere komplet og bedre balance. Dog mangler den lidt mere power.
In tegenstelling met de 10 years is de 20 years Rum prijs/kwaliteit wel in orde.
Caramel, Fudge, kleine hint van banaan en Sugar cane.
daarbij nog een zéér mooie cadeau verpakking, is mooi meegenomen.
A bartender recommended this on a trip to Colombia. The night was a blurr, but I remember being wowed by this at at $3 an oz. It didnt need to breath at all with a very mild heat and a kick of sweet almost like candy. Complex flavors weren't dancing in my mouth, but it was enjoyable and easy to drink for a beginner who only ever mixed his rums in coke before having this
Well over 700 aged rums tasted during the past 15 years and I had very high expectations on the Dictador rum family. The Dictador 20 year was quite a disappointment to me. Flavor is very cluttered, smell is off putting and quite a strong afterburn leads me to believe that the 12 and 20 year old Dictadors have a very long way to reach the maturity of the XO brands. 20 year is only marginally better than the 12 year old.
Wonderful Smell and touch of chocolate
I like to drink it when is cold
Lets try it
The wash over the tongue lacks any distinguishing flavour, yet the secondary and lingering tastes unquestionably raise the standard of this rum. Rich in vanilla and caramel flavours lasting significantly after a sip. Definitely a unique sipper in my books.
Nice taste, not to sharp not to sugary, a nice mix
Dégusté un peu trop chaud dans un bar...
Le nez est sympa mais il a un peu trop l alcool qui ressort. Néanmoins il passe bien :D
Interesting rum with wallnut taste and smell, nice light aftertaste.
quality but in deep like for the price it should be a tad better. The Kirk & Sweeney 23 year is on par with this for half the price. Don't get me wrong. For the collector and connoisseur this is a must have. It's so smooth on the first sip it's almost like water . . . . and then the bite hits you.
Dictador 20 year old. The starting point for my passion for great Rum. I had always been a whiskey man until my friend popped the cork on a bottle of Dictador 20 on his birthday 10 years ago. Now I search out the limited and tastiest Rums of the world and drive my wife crazy when I don't bat an eye when paying '00's for a great bottle. Price-wise, this is an incredible value, holding it's own alongside rums that are 2 or 3 times more expensive.
Du café tout d'abord, un caramel vanillé assez discret, des notes d'agrumes et même de fruits à coque. Une belle couleur, une belle complexité et une longueur suffisante.
Une très bonne bouteille à mon goût
A very decent rum all round. I've tried a couple of the Dictador rums, and this one is certainly worth the extra money. Recommended.
Dolce, morbido e corposo. Sentori di caramello, vaniglia, miele e frutta secca. Buono!
Za tu cenu si tedy představuju něco úplně jiného. Není špatný, ale v této cenové realci jsou ty správné klenoty jinde.
The closest thing I could describe this as is the kirk and sweeny 18 year.
Very smooth. Caramel on the nose, toffee a little cream soda . Oaky tail.
Similar to more ecpensive XO insolent. I like the taste of coffee, caramel and vanilla. For the money its superb rum. One of the best price/taste value
