Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I have held off for more than a year in buying this expensive rum ($96 US) because most of the reviews favored their XO Insolent to this one. I agree and I won't add any more to what has already been said. The best buy from Dictador is their 20 year solera and I keep several bottles of that one on hand because it is so hard to find where I live. This one is even harder to find.
A few days later, I compared it side by side with my Dictador 12. This one is much darker and much better in taste. Then I compared this one to my Dictador 20. Same colors, but very subtle differences in taste. Overall, I would say that this one is not worth the 50% markup over the Dictador 20. It is still a very good rum, but not worth the high price. Stick with Dictador 20 for best value!
A nice dark amber colour and a strong caramel, vanilla and spice aroma sets the expectation for a taste delight. Once sat for a minute or two it does not disssapoint. It's not overly sweet and delivers a smooth oak start, those caramel, vanilla and spice flavours in the middle and ends dry with a slightly molasses aftertaste. A very nice rum indeed.
Ceva deosebit.. Exclusivist și rafinat. Un rom super premium dacă se poate numi așa. Am rămas plăcut impresionat. Merită 10 fără nicio îndoială dar mai există și INSOLENT-ul care chiar este 10.
Alkohol: 40 %
Ochutnán ve srovnávacím testu s D 12, D 20 a XO Insolent.
Aroma: Ve vůni se nám vrací ke kávě a oproti Insolentu nám mizí lékořice. Koňakové tóny, hřebíček, hutná kůže, čokoláda. Přijde mi podobný D 20. V druhé vlně se vynoří hřejivost koření, hutnost je ještě o kousek dál a je tu i větrovost.(89 b)
Chuť: V chuti mi přijde o kousek zajímavější, než D 20 i Insolent. Je o něco plnější, kořenitější. Hřebíček, rumové pralinky. Bez sladkosti, jinak klasicky pro tuto značku koňak a čokoláda.(87 b)
Shrnutí: Značka se drží svého stylu, jede si to své a dělají to dobře.
Back to solera rum for these both Dictador rum from Columbia. Time for Perpetual : Same beautiful dark color. The coffee, vanilla, honey, caramel and chocolate are present. This one is drier with a more robust body. The finish is also long. Dictador made two different rum with one dry , and the insolent more softer. This one should be better for rum connoisseur. To be also into your collection.
This is simply a fantastic and smooth rum.
In my opinion the Insolent is marginally better but if anyone asked me which one they should buy I'd tell them to buy both.
Both shine in their genre. Insolent a touch of maple, Perpetual drier with dried fruit/vanilla. If you go back and forth you can decide which way you lean. My senses are still fighting over sweet vs dry ratio in my tastings. I seem to enjoy and appreciate both, so I will continue to own both.
