The precious liquids in our 'Best Of' range represent a selection from our greatest and most mature barrels. Our impressive collection has been developing since the opening of our distillery in 1913 and represents one of the most significant stocks of Fine & Rare Rums in the World today. The aging process gives complexity, smoothness, 3rd and 4th tasting note, character and the lingering aftertaste.
Now this is some good stuff
So they added artificial coffee flavor like they do to every other Dictador. At least it is not overpowering and if you just don't think about it, it's drinkable. Which is not very nice thing to say about premium vintage rum, is it?
Smooth rich flavours of leather, caramel, molasses, liquorice with a slight nutty finish and a subtle natural sweetness that is perfectly balanced. This is a real treat and worth every penny/cent.

Vzorek #6 na RumFest Praha 2020
Velké zklamání! Očekával jsem komplexní rum, když se jedná o takové stáří. Ochutnával jsem i ročník 1987 a je opravdu k nevíře, že se jedná o obyčejné, nudné rumy. Kvalitativně se od 20 yo či od XO verzí v zásadě neliší, jen několikanásobně vyšší cenou.
Enjoyed a bottle of Dictador Best of 1979 with my friend during a vacation. Very nice and high end bottle and hand written label design. Deep mahogany color. Typical coffee notes are clearly identifiable to the nose and palate from all older Dictador brands. Surprisingly similar to the Best of 1977.
I love this. The age makes a beautiful nose of old leather libraries. There is a lovely tingle that only comes from long aging. The taste has a range of toffees and burnt caramels and an influence of saltines. It would be a perfect 10 but for a bitter note in the after taste. But i love this rum.
It's like a perfumed Coffee Liqueuer. Toffee, caramel and dark chocolate are also present along with some raisin notes.
"The sweetness is less pronounced but it just tastes like young cheap alcohol mixed with some sugar syrup and some kind of coffee flavouring. It’s thin and slightly bitter – the oak spice what little there is just harsh and bitter."
