Part of Rum Calendar 2016: very nice scent of caramel, well balanced, delicate, but a bit thin and a short aftertaste.
This rum is amazing from pop of cork to last sip ,
Amazing aroma , vanilla , cinnamon and caramel what a wonderful experience. I shall savour every glass I pour smooth , smooth , smooooooooth . FREAKING AMAZING RUM !!!10 plus
truly unique is that toward the end they dump the Insolent barrels, re-toast the wood, and then refill them with the previously dumped rum. The final product is one of the finest rums you’ll ever drink.
I'm personally very torn between a 9 and a 10 for this one. It's one of the best I've tried in my life. Its color is deep and it's flavors of honey, toffee, caramel, and it's aroma is almost of butterscotch.
Prachtige kleur, zoete zwoele geur van karamel en zoete mandarijn.
Toch ook wel alcohol die op de voorgrond treed.
jammer ook weer in de hogere prijsklasse.
Well over 1,800 aged rums tasted during the past 15 years and I had very high expectations on the Dictador rum family. The XO Insolent has plenty going on flavorwise, but ultimately it is all coffee and then some more coffee. If you like coffee, you will absolutely go crazy after this rum. It is very smooth and there is no afterburn at all.
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.
Dictador XO Insolent rum is delicious I give it an easy 10, enough said
Its a very good rum but very similar to D20y that cost the half. I tasted these rums side by side. It is bit more sweet than 20y, but still Coffee, caramel, vanilla. Good choice
wonderful aroma, even greater in the mouth.
This rum blows me away.
I need to find another bottle, this one won't last long.
Dictador XO Insolent est mon rum préféré. Parfait équilibre entre caramel, vanille, café et anis avec un telle douceur qu'il n'y a pratiquement pas de "afterburn". J'adore...
Firme, balanceado y elegante, tiene notas intrigantes de intensidad que sorprenden y deleitan. Miel dulce y especias con carácter se envuelven en un cálido toque ahumado. Cítricos, frutas tropicales maduras y caramelo entre notas de tabaco y pasas. El largo, suave y relajante final es complejo y fascinante - un sinnúmero de influencias que terminan con notas sutiles de turba.
Creme Brûlée in a bottle!! This rum is truly a sipping treat.
Poured a deep amber. Lighter than I expected. Incredible nose. I got an intense roasted chestnut aroma. Wonderful depth of flavor as the glass set. Initial tasting was a lucious butterscotch as it warmed it seemed to take on a bit of a smoky character followed by a rich fudge profile. One of the best I have tried to date.
better then the Perpetual but similar flavors and undertones
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.
Mild and sweet like fruitcake, but not overly sweet or syrupy. Taste lingers in your mouth nicely.
So to be fair I have a bias towards caramel-esque rums rather than rums that have more of a whiskey profile. I truly love the Dictator 20 year offering but this is something special.
From the first whiff you pick up the toffee, butterscotch and vanilla. The first sip doesn't disappoint. No burn whatsoever. Pure flavor. It isn't super sweet like liquid candy but rather very smooth with the all the aromas coming through on the palette.
If you don't like caramel or toffee, save your money and go for something different. However, if you gravitate towards the sweeter side Insolent XO will not disappoint.
Con un buen hielo grande, nada más...Just one big ice, no more. After taste this Dictador XO insolente you can not keep drinking bad rum. Be prepared to fight with your wife because you are going to expend a lot of more money every time you go to the liquor store. Best of the best
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
This rum has such amazing qualities. Incredibly smooth, no afterburn, sweet flavor of allspice. One of my top 10.
Ăsta e! Cel mai bun rom pe care l-am gustat până acum. Nici nu știu dacă se poate numi rom. Atât de multe arome, atât de fin.. Un aftertaste spectaculos! O combinație de prăjituri, înghețată, rom, fructe, ciocolată.. Cu cea mai mare încredere recomand pentru o experiență deosebită! Only "on the rocks".
Printre cele mai bune romuri. Arome de cafea si tabac foarte fine. Scurt, e fabulooos!
Fantastic rum. No question. Pricey but very smooth and tons of butterscotch, pralines and cream flavours, which I personally don't like. But there is no denying the quality here. Best tastes straight. I would personally like to see this $30 cheaper; but it is something I can easily recommend. At this price I probably wouldn't restock my bar with it, but mostly because I prefer different tastes, others will love it as it really is a quality rum.
