Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Taste 7,2/10. Some semi-dry, very little sweetness & after that a complex and not my style taste like cognac style (maybe?) with medium (but not much) burn, also i can taste the age of this rum not fake as some cheap soleras. If you let it in glass for 10 minutes is better and you taste also the spiciness and coffee. Insolent must be better but not great even and for this price....
Der erste Geschmack ist recht enttäuschend. Der Rum liegt stumpf auf der Zunge, deutliche Toffee und Schoko Noten sind zu schmecken. Für meinen Geschmack ein zu kurzer Nachklang
Well over 400 aged rums tasted during the past 15 years and I had very high expectations on the Dictador rum family. The XO Perpetual has plenty going on flavorwise, but there isn't anything clearly identifiable beyond the tobacco leafs and coffee. Afterburn is surprisingly strong for a top end rum. XO Insolent is better in all categories.
I’m not a fan. I can admire the overall structure and I can see why this rum is so well regarded. But for me it’s overriding butterscotch and toffee. On the nose and palate and forever in length. I do get other things going on but I don’t have a sweet tooth. I have great friends who love toffee. It’s simply not for me. Foursquare is rather more in my line.
Once you open the bottle the smell of tobaco and coffee greets you.
When sipping it the same flavours shine through, with a kind of sweetness.
The aftertaste was sensational, but the way there isn´t really worth it
Very strong coffee taste and aftertaste. It's not necessarily bad, just really weird. Also, it's a little too boozy and not in a good way. This is a decent $25 rum. What's that you say? It sells for $100??!! Wow...
