when you look at Dictador's lineup, you have to ask yourself where does this one fit in... it's definitely not aimed at true rum drinkers... does that mean it's aiming squarely at Bacardi drinkers?

if the latter, it makes sense.

if the former, you are ruining the brand image for brand's other products.

Kind of harsh rum with strong notes of wood and little bit smoky. The end is very dry and unpleasant for me. I could not feel anything else.

This rum has a beautifully rich, sweet nose. Before I’ve tasted a drop, it’s already delicious. Once it’s warmed up a bit, this sweetness can be found in the rum itself. Slightly alcoholic on the tongue, but really very drinkable.

I like all Dictadors - it is great to be able to follow the maturing of their products. One each stage they are special - Chapeau

Stronger aroma (maybe touch of caramel), average taste, not sweet, little bit woody

The Dutch would label this as Jong Belegen (Young Mature). Like some of the other commentators this lacks a place within the line up of Dictador.
Smell is smooth-ish with a hint of cinnamon and 5-spice but taste is sharp & spicy, showing what seems to be its age.
It’s not a rum mixer, whilst at the same time I struggle to drink it straight.

Tried a glass of Dictador 100 Amber while vacationing in Versailles. Boring bottle design. Golden color. Alcohol to the nose. If you pay attention, there is a hint of Dictador rum lurking behind all that un-matured alcohol smell. Taste test reveals a very young and immature flavor profile. Burn follows at the end. What else do you expect from a 100 month aging process.

In the interest of full disclosure I approach my personal review knowing that Dictator is one of my favorite brands.

As with the Dictador Claro 100 (which I reviewed earlier) the "100" refers to how many months it has been aged (a little over 8 years). The hue becomes a nice shade of mahogany with bronze highlights..

I repeat myself but just as with the Dictado Claro 100 the metal screw cap was substandard and would not release thereby stripping the groove and making it difficult to open. Eventually I managed to get the stupid thing OFF the bottle by using my Spyderco pocketknife (without ruining the point BTW). Apparently I am not alone with this gripe. Hopefully someone there will get the hint.

I noticed very good legs when I swirled it around in my snifter. Lengthy streams. The aroma is quite nice.

I detect butterscotch, toffee, and some vanilla in the initial flavor along with natural sweetness. Some oak and pepper, but not all that much surprisingly. It is quite smooth with little burn. The finish highlight the butterscotch and vanilla flavors which slowly fade enticing one to take another sip.

Along with the Dictador Claro 100 this is a very nice sipping rum. I've given both an 8 but if I had to choose, the Amber would be my choice over the Claro but both would be welcome.
