Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
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.
Part of Rum Calendar 2016: very nice scent of caramel, well balanced, delicate, but a bit thin and a short aftertaste.
Not too sweet, rich and smooth.
Very good choice.
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.
Rhum très doux, intéressant, bonne surprise avec un bon final
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...
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.
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 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
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.
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 think this rum has a taste of curry. I really can't abstract from that tastenote - and I really do not like this rum
