Conserva el sabor de las barricas y sabe amaderado. No obstante ls notas fuertes que conserva le matizan mucho el sabor de la madera, siendo esas notas muy deliciosas que hacen de este ron único en su sabor. Identificarlo en una cata sería facil porque tiene un aroma muy especial
The new bottle (no solera) is a little bit different to my old impressions. It's more on the cocoa side.
I read in another reviews also some notes of chocolate and cocoa. A little bit more vanilla and young oak in the solera and it's a little bit more mellow.
I think all Dictadors have changed a little bit, this could be because they toasted their casks heavier.
This rum has a recognition value (it's pot still + column still blend). It needs 30min in the glas until it opens the aromas.
The flavor profile is honey with cocoa and spices like pepper and nutmeg. It's not sweetened.
Unusual combination, that's why it has a unique taste.
The smell is a combination of honey, vanilla, cocoa, spices and some wood. I can not clearly separate all flavors, but I enjoy this composition.
The taste starts with a little bit cocoa, then slightly a woody note (or call it paper) shows up followed by the honey with vanilla. It's not watery but I noticed the dilution, it's thiner of course. I would prefer 45% I think. Then I got also some dry fruits and different spices like pepper and nutmeg. They are not very dominant, you get only some hints of them.
A good rum, not very complex but unique. Would rate it with 75 points.

Tak veľmi som sa tešil na 20 ročný Dictator,sklamal má fakt moc. Je fakt pikantný,suchsi a neprišiel mi vyvážený. Časom ho vyskúšam znova a uvidime,či zmením hodnotenie
"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."
