Small review of Dictador 12:

1) Origin: Columbia, 12-year-old solera, but I have no illusions about the number of the oldest items. European distribution should be controlled from Katowice (Poland).
2) Bottle: nice shape, but it is completely opaque, so you can't see how much you have left in the bottle. The plug has a real cork.
3) Aroma: Walnuts are absolutely dominant. Another strong ingredient is sweet coffee and also a little vanilla. Once opened, there is no smelling alcohol.
4) Taste: Again, ripe walnuts + Kofila (Czech coffee chocolate bar) and also vanilla predominate. It is a medium-sweet rum, approximately at the level of Zacapa 23. It is less sweet than Diplomatico RE and a little less than, for example, Dos Maderas 5 + 5. It is not puckery or bitter, but quite smooth.
Note: Before drinking, I rinsed the glass with water and let the rum "exhale" for about 15 minutes. I do it every time and it worked for me. The drops on the walls of the glass partially "absorb" the harschness of the alcohol, which does not disturb the taste so much.
5) Aftertaste: Relatively short and fades soon. It is pity.

I recommend it to beginners who do not like too sweet or too dry rums.

Overall rating: 8/10

Do not be confused by the dark bottle, it hides an excellent rum. The aroma of chocolate, coffee, nuts... smooth nose. The taste then presents a soft bitter sweet tone, you feel both chocolate and coffee. In the throat you feel only smooth and pleasant warmness. The afterburn keeps on long and is really fine.

I am looking forward to trying the Insolent one.

From my personal point of view is this rum very specific. It tastes a bit agressive and dry, but still good choice with strong tones of coffee and very dark chocolate. Long time after sip you can recognize strong taste of walnut. And its black matt bottle is very elegant. Not my favourite, but still recommendable.

This rum has notes of coffee, honey, smoke, cinnamon, oak, vanilla, spice, and rubber. It's a little dry for a rum, which is fine, but it also feels a little harsh to me, as do most of the Dictador rums. I'm not sure if it's just me that notices this; maybe it's the spice? Good, but not one of my favorites.

Voici un très bon rhum très doux,

Au nez, il est sur la vanille et l'amande. En bouche, on retrouve la douceur de la vanille et le miel. La finale est longue et agréable :)

A conseiller !!

It is not bad as a sipping rum, but there are many better rums in the same price range

On the nose it's almost like a coffee liquor. Taste is honey-sweet (but not too much) with coffee and chocolate. Definitely different too anything I've tasted so far, which I consider positive. Makes me curious about the 20y...

Eine wunderbare Komposition.
Da zieht es einem die Nase ins Glas ! Im positiven Sinn !
Holz, Leder, dunkle Schokolade,
im Gaumen kommt noch Kaffee und Baumnuss (Walnuss) dazu.
Herrlich langer Abgang.
Super für einen kalten Winterabend.

A wonderful composition.
Then it pulls your nose into the glass! In the positive sense!
Wood, leather, dark chocolate,
In the palate there is still coffee and walnut.
Wonderful long finish.
Great for a cold winter evening.

Un rom foarte distins, cu o aroma deosebita. Se simt nuante foarte puternice de tabac si cafea, spre final se simt arome de citrice si miere. Merita incercat.

Schöne Flasche. Riecht nach caramel. Im Geschmack etwas viel Holznote.

Rum Dictador pochází z města Cartagena de Indias, ležícího na karibském pobřeží. Zraje solera systémem v dubových sudech po dobu nejméně dvanácti let. Vyroben je z panenské šťávy cukrové třtiny. Lákavě vypadající černá lahev byla navržena v Japonsku.
Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Kolumbie
Aroma: Vůně je hutná, skvěle vyvážená, ale ne těžká. Jedná se o zajímavý mix kávy, sušené pomerančové kůry, kůže, karamelu, vanilky, kakaa a čokolády. Se sklenkou si můžete pohrávat dlouho a hledet a objevovat jednotlivé vůně. (87 b)
Chuť: Začátek je jemný, uhlazený, až hebký, sladkost veskrze žádná, dojem z chuti je velmi suchý, kakakový,jemně štiplavý, jemně káva a Kofila, dozvuk dřevitý až lehce kouřový. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Dictador 12y je ideální pro ty, kdo hledají protipól sladkých až přeslazených rumů, svou suchostí by je mohl oslovit. Svým charakterem nemá ani daleko k některým koňakům. Kolumbie se svým rumem nezklamala, odteď se mi při vyslovení Kolumbie vybaví už i kvalitní rum. V nabídce značky jsou i dražší a starší verze 20y, Dictador XO Perpetual a Dictador XO Insolent.
