Dictador Solera finesse. Carribean flavor.

Dictador is one of those elite brands, any true Rum aficionado should sample and experience. Destilería Colombiana, based in Colombia, has been distilling high quality Rum for more than a century. Only recently though, they’ve stepped away from blends and started developing their own private label – Dictador Rum. It was about time too, since their solo products are pure quality. It’s no wonder that their Spirits consistently win awards and the praise of Rum-lovers everywhere. Based in Cartagena on the Caribbean coast, the combination of land and weather provides the perfect base for sugar cane growth and therefore Rum production.

The Dictador 12 Year Old Rum, made from the fermentation of unique virgin sugar cane honey, then distilled in a modern stainless steel alembic. This Dictador is a solera aged Rum, meaning it’s drawn from the solera vat at the ripe age of 12. Younger Rums are aged in oak casks and then blended with older Rums. The marriage of old and new provides an end result that is one of the most exquisite Rums you’ll ever get to taste. This Rum is aged for 12 years is pre-used oak barrels, and bottled at 40% ABV.

Thomas
Thomas,
has a lot of maple flavor
 
PJ
PJ,
Very sweet at first with a heavy maple syrup finish. Drys out after 3-4 sips.
 
Kimani
Kimani,
This has a great oaky sweetness that's very mellow.
 
Byron
Byron,
Good but as one might expect, not as good as Dictador's 20 year version. Similar rich flavor notes but with a stronger astringent harshness. Comparisons aside, it's a nice sipping rum.

Jackie,
Sweet aftertaste with a hint of coffee

Mike,
Excellent sipping rum.
 
Donna
Donna,
Sorry, I'm unable to sample... the bottle had been previously opened and a considerable amount appears to be missing!!! Seriously? I paid $45.99 for a bottle that probably contains a fair amount of backwash from the person that opened it. DISGUSTING THIS WILL BE MY LAST ORDER... I DO NOT BUY "USED" SPIRITS!

Very Smooth

Kyle,
Awesome layered flavors. Perfect for sipping. Mixing this treat would be sacrilegious.
 
Mike
Mike,
This is very smooth Rum. The tastes just flow off your tongue. I like it better than many of the scotch and Rye's I have.
 
Michael
Michael,
Smooth rum but the 20 year is better.
