Predominantly sweet but pleasant, fruity hues, complemented by slightly accents of almond bitter and cocoa powder.It s different from the others
Im Glas etwas transparent gelblich.
In der Nase die typischen Gewürz Düfte die auch beim 12 yo , 15 yo und den XO zu finden sind aber nur sehr schwach im allgeneinem eine schwache Nase. Etwas geräuchertes Karamell und dezente Holztöne sind flüchtig war zunehmen.
Im Gaumen lieblich warm aber sehr zurückhaltend. Kokos, Limetten, Zuckerrohr, Butterkekse, Schokolade und Gewürze sind dezent war zunehmen.
Der Abgang ist wohl das Beste an diesem Rum. Herrlich lang wechseln sich Schokolade, Karamell und Gewürze ab.
Ein durchaus interessanter weisser Rum für Drinks mit "Körper". Für meinen Geschmack ein wenig zu viel gefiltert, gegenüber den 12 yo,15 yo oder XO wirkt dieser 8 jährige flach und fade. Neu jetzt in der klaren Dictador Standartflasche.
In the glass slightly transparent yellowish.
In the nose the typical spice scents that are also found at 12 yo, 15 yo and XO but only very weak in general a weak nose. Some smoked caramel and subtle wood tones are fleetingly increasing.
Deliciously warm on the palate but very reserved. Coconut, lime, sugarcane, butter biscuits, chocolate and spices are discreetly increasing.
The finish is probably the best thing about this rum. Wonderfully long chocolate, caramel and spices alternate.
A very interesting white rum for drinks with "body". For my taste a little too much filtered, compared to the 12 yo, 15 yo or XO, this 8 year old looks flat and bland. New now in the clear Dictador standard bottle.
In the interest of full disclosure I approach my personal review knowing that Dictator is one of my favorite brands.
With that being said, let me tell you about the Claro 100...
First off the "100" refers to how many months it has been aged (a little over 8 years). Interestingly even after that long the color is a pale yellow which makes me wonder if it has been charcoal filtered at some point.
On an aside, I don't know who is responsible for quality control on the bottles but the metal screw cap was substandard and would not release thereby stripping the groove and making it difficult to open. Eventually I managed to coax...force would be a better word...into opening but it wouldn't seal properly after that. Time for a re-design.
Swirling it in my snifter revealed good legs and a very pleasant aroma.
The flavor is quite nice...vanilla, oak, pepper, and a hint of caramel. Sticks to the tongue for a while and has a little burn in the back of the throat.
Definitely a nice sipping rum. Personally I think this is a worthy beach rum. Could be used well in a mixed drink but I would personally recommend it for sipping and relaxing.
In regards to rum, I don't like chocolate flavor.
But I like this because finish is very clear.
Nose: white chocolate, nuts
Taste: dense white chocolate, suger
Compared to its rivals in the price range and especially its sibling, the Amber 100 from Dictador, it is a disappointment. I can't describe what's wrong exactly, but besides not having any character I feel in it -- except for maybe some clove ? -- I feel something in it I dont like. I am happy to drink a rum that doesn't have anything special in any direction, but this has something it should not have -- at least not at its price range.
Like the Amber, it sure tastes like something was added, but the flavor is pleasant. The wife says cream soda. I get more caramel. Mixed better than the Amber and less afterburn.
I finally saw this Dictador Claro rum for sale for $21 US (and at a 25% markup at that). What went through my mind when buying it was that I could get to try their Dictador 12 Year Solera in it's infancy with this one. Not even close!!!! The back label states that this rum is made from cane juice and then aged for 100 months in used oak barrels before being filtered to get the color of pale yellow.
So why is it so bad to deserve my low rating of a 4? I am highly tolerant of burn as you all know, but this burn is downright unbearable when served neat. No flavors come through. In other words, this rum is almost worthless for anything. So why not a rating lower than 4? Those lower rums are actually a LOT worse!!!
As an after note, if you get stuck with a bottle of this rum, there is no need to pour it down the drain. Pour some of it over lots of ice and then add a few drops of Angostura Bitters and a few drops of lime juice. Due to no sugar being added to this rum, it probably has a low hangover
effect. However, I seriously doubt that anyone could drink enough of this rum to prove or disprove this theory. You have been warned!
Iarba verde proaspat cosita, sau mai degraba fan; aici ma duce cu gandul atat mirosul cat si gustul. in miros poate si ceva citric . Alcoolul se simte binisor si in miros si in gust . gustul e persistent. arde pe limba dar curge lin pe gat ), foarte putin dulceag cu aroma de caramel si un iz de lemn .
merita incercat daca il gasiti la un pret decent .
Die hellgoldene Farbe bringt eine willkommene Abwechslung zum Trend der Farbstoffzugabe.
Vanillig mit deutlich wahrnehmbarem Alkoholgeruch in der Nase.
Geschmack nach Butterscotch. Weiterhin alkoholisch, aber nicht scharf. Weich. Kaffenoten im Nachhall. Langer Abgang.
