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.

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.

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)

B/B- 85/19
