Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Can't make up my mind about this one. It's a good rum, but I've had better and for the price I don't think I can recommend it. That said, if you're splashing out or buying a gift, it is a decent rum and I enjoyed the taste.
...un peu cher...
sinon, le coté "café" me plait beaucoup, et il apparait comme un rhum tres bien conçu et équilibré
Not too sweet, rich and smooth.
Very good choice.
This is a smooth and drinkable run. Not as sweet as Zacapa or Zaya. Complex flavors including butterscotch, toffee, banana as well as some nuts and berries. My biggest issue is that i can find 10 rums that are much better for half the price
This rum definitely has a lot of good things going for it but ultimately it fails to be a fantastic rum. I actually prefer the 20 year old Dictador.
Part of Rum Calendar 2016: very nice scent of caramel, well balanced, delicate, but a bit thin and a short aftertaste.
Printre cele mai bune romuri. Arome de cafea si tabac foarte fine. Scurt, e fabulooos!
Natürlicher reiner rum Geschmack. Gut ausgeglichen einer der besseren Dictador
Farven er halvbleg sammenlignet med nogle af de glas jeg har fået på det seneste! Det er en meget speciel rom! Duftindtrykket stemmer overhovedet ikke overens med den smagsoplevelse jeg fik i første ombæring.
I næsen dominerer karamel og svage noter af lakrids. Men smagen er ikke nær så sød som jeg så ville tro, den er faktisk halvtør. Jeg finder jeg vanilie, honning og brændte kaffebønner? Eftersmagen er spændende og relativ lang, uden dog at udfolde sig yderligere (her mærker man i særdeleshed tørheden). Rommen er i fin balance, det jeg i de første par sip tog for værende en anelse sprittet er helt forsvundet nu hvor temperaturen i glasset er røget lidt op. Et rigtig fint glas, om jeg ender med at købe en flaske ved jeg ikke. Men er glad for at have smagt denne!
Purchased a sample from Master of Malt for around the £8 mark. Decent sipping rum with notes of coffee and intense caramel for a powerful nose. Good rum with loads of character!
Tasted this back to back with the dictador 20yr old.
This tastes much "thinner" and much more alcohol.
Still quite sweet and a little toffee. A little chewy.
For me not as good as the 20 yr old. I think it is a fair bit more expensive.
This rum is not the one for me. Highly recommended by lots but could not appreciate the smell. To much karamel, almost butterscotch. Taste was oké but there are better ones for less...As far as im concerned.
All and all; pretty good stuff, smooth and easy to drink
Right off the bat I smell tonnes of coffee and mild chocolate.
The taste is mostly coffee and liquorish and something I can't put my finger on; it 's almost like cherry cough syrup.
I'm suspicious of this rum because so many of the brands from South America seem to be doctored with flavorings, colorants and added sugar without the slightest regard for ethical practices. This one features chocolate, coffee, spice and anise - it's positively tasty as all get up, but should the label say "flavored rum"? The company say that it's made, not from molasses but from "sugar cane honey". Same as St. Nicholas Abbey rums. However, Dictador and St. Nick's are polar opposites. This rum is not at all subtle, with flavors that will demand your attention. It's delicious, but can we see a list of ingredients? I didn't think so...
Not my favorite, complex but unbalanced. Better on the nose than on the lips. Bitterness that I can't place but definitely nutty with wood taste with aroma of sweetness. I will pass on buying another bottle.
I bought a bottle after seeing it rated so highly by online reviews. Thought it had a taste I couldn't put my finger on. Re-read some reviews and agree it is like a butterscotch/toffee. Smooth though, no burn aftertaste.
I have less expensive rums which I think taste much better. Paid $100 US for the bottle.
Coffee and anise dominate. The anise is usually a dealbreaker for me, but in this case, it's ok. I know what the testing says, but this is cloyingly sweet.
edited to add sugar test results- 4g
Vona po kave a orieskoch. Chut po prazenych orieskoch, tabaku, anize, primerane sladka, stiplava, na XO rum je v chuti velmi vyrazny alkohol. Telo tento rum ako keby nemal. V ustach mi po vypiti ostava neprijemna pachut. Musim priznat, ze cela standardna rada Dictador mi vobec nechuti, ako rumy 12y a 20y, tak ani drahsie verzie Insolent a Perpetual. Za tie peniaze poznam kopec chutovo lepsich rumov. Toto nieje pre mna...
I really wanted to like this but I don't like the tobacco and coffee that dominate the flavour profile. It isn't particularly rich,sweet or complex but instead feels quite thin in the mouth. It just doesn't balance well for me. At this price the zacapa xo wins every time. I'm sure it'll taste great drowned in coke though. I just like my rum neat and this doesn't cut it.
I think this rum has a taste of curry. I really can't abstract from that tastenote - and I really do not like this rum
