Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Sugar: Estimated 10-15 GPL. This is a top shelf rum! Complex, sweet, and smooth. Nice amber colour in the glass and so aromatic. Reminds me of the Diplomatico Ambassador rum, but a lot lower priced. The smell and taste remind me of the burnt sugar on the top of a creme brule. Add in some coffee, vanilla, chocolate and butterscotch and you have a desert in a glass. No harsh afterburn, just a nice long warming of your palete. Overall this is a superb rum.
Rude Dictator? Smooth as silk! First sip and this earned merit as one of my all time greats! So great that mixing it would be a crime. Perfectly balanced.
I got a 5cl mini bottle of this, along with Perpetual and out of the 2, i slightly prefer this one. First off, this is one of the nicest smelling rums i have laid my nose on! This is odd for me to say, but the smell is very similar to an aftershave by Carner Barcelona called El Born! Very nice indeed. The taste is very unique too, giving a nice warm honey vibe although i found the finish to be quite short. I feel bad rating this as a 7 because in reality, i would give it a 7.5 but i have my own rating system and would like to stick to it rather than dishing out 8's and 9's when i know there are rums out there that just give me that little extra. Overall, this is a nice rum worth trying, i just seem to favor rums that have that gorgeous finish like with Doorly's 12 & 14, Appleton 12 & joy.
This dictador differs from the 20 and 12 year old.
It smells of a spicy marshmallow (sweet coconut) and vanilla.
An interesting rum, I wouldn't always want to drink it, but it's very unique.
Would definitely recognize it again.
Smell: marshmallow, vanilla, spices, creamy and warm
Taste: little sweetness, again a lot of marshmallow (vanilla, some coconut, sweat cream), a lot of spice, very creamy.
Much better and smoother than his 12y brother. This is really awesome rum with right amount of sweethness. Aroma of coffee and nuts. In mouth continue flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, nuts, vanilla and oak. Absolutely great.
This is a really, really nice quality rum, only down side for me was a bit too much coffee back note, otherwise this would have been a 9/10. Its dark rich and a lovely smooth sipper, nothing is over the top, all balanced from the flavour profiles to the smooth alcohol burn to the long taste finish. Like i said it would have been a 9/10 but for me it had a bit too much coffee back note, however I'd buy it again and may well review my score again.
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.
One of my top, very dark in coulor, every sip brings a different note, vanilla, toffee and chocolat but very light. A little more sweet than the perpetual
I strongly recommend
Waited a long time and read a lot of very good ratings on this piece of liquid gold and it was worth it.
Silk on the tongue, strong on the taste which stays with you even after it is well down your stomach and ZERO burn... WOW
If I were a coffee drinker it would be perfect. Thus the 9. Neat: Wonderful vanilla toffee with hint of cinnamon. Some butterscotch. A hint of coffee aroma and taste. Nice after notes. My kids are going to love this. Oh and I may start drinking coffee.
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...
Con La Hechicera y Parce, los mejores rones colombianos. Un balance muy agradable. Pura miel, como para tomarlo en pequeños sorbos.
A wonderful sipping rum with lovely strong but not intrusive vanilla and butterscotch notes. No burn whatsoever. Don't miss out on this one.
Minder meget om Perpetual lidt stærk i smagen ala lakrids og peber, men fik den ret kold, så den vil bestemt være bedre under en anden temperatur er min tanke... Jeg kan ikke smage forskel på de 2 i hvert fald ikke med et ½ år i mellem...
Really enjoyed this but not sure I’d keep it in the regular rotation based solely on the price. Very unique Carmel/butterscotch flavor & absolutely zero burn on the back end.
