Apparently this rum is aged in bourbon barrels. Slightly more mellow on the nose than the 20 Yr, but VERY similar scent profile. Almost indistinguishable. Still has lots of apples/pears, and alcohol on the nose. The taste is by far the best of the three Dictator rums I've tried. The bourbon aging seems to mellow it out, has added a lot of complexity, and is very rich. Had this side by side with ED21, and although they are completely different, this is right there in the same class. However, looking at internet prices, this bottle typically costs between $100-$120. In that case, I'd probably choose the ED21 or a couple bottles of Diplomatico Exclusiva. 92+?

The rum is excellent. it has a strong smell that continues into the body of Vina walnut. Perpetual is very smooth, with a silky finish that lasts and gives away aromas of vanilla and nut. My wife says she can feel also coffee and dark chocolate hints.

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...

First impression is that you have buy a high quality rum. Provided with a very beaytiful packaging, you are not dissappointed when you open the bottle. Once served in your glass, you can admire the dark brown color of this devine liquid. In the mouth,you will find a taste of coffee with a little bit of toffee. The aftertaste is quite long. This rum is well balanced. Really a good one. The next one to taste will be his little Insolent brother ... Yummy !!!

Шоколад, фундук и грецкие орехи. Мёд. Нотка ванили...
Один из самых любимых ромов.
С хорошей сигарой, получается фантастический дуэт!

Aroma is light and smooth. First taste is woody sweet with a bit burning. Finish is pleasant and long with cherry toffee and chocolate tones.

Once you get past the trashy Dior style packaging there is much enjoyment to be had. Mouthfuls of coffee, honey, caramel and walnuts with a long warm smooth finish. Not too sweet, but just sweet enough. Excellent value for money at €89 that will not disappoint.

La robe de ce Perpetual présente une teinte Mahogany nuancée par des reflets dorés.
Le nez est d'une grande amplitude et exalte de gourmands parfums de miel, de café et de chocolat noir qui se marient à une vanille délicate.
La dégustation révèle un profil marqué par une riche personnalité où les épices apparaissent par touches au cœur de généreuses notes de café qui soulignent l'origine colombienne de ce rhum.

För att vara en så pass dyr rom så händer det lite för lite när man dricker den. Den blir frånåkt av Dictador 20 så i mina ögon är det mer värt att köpa den istället för denna.
