One drop at-a-time; one of the World’s most awarded Rums.

The history of the Dictador brand goes back to 1751, when Severo Arango y Ferro arrived to Cartagena, where his power would soon earn him the nickname of Dictador. Falling in love with Rum, Severo Arango y Ferro decided to become the most important trader of different exotic and high quality Rums for the Cartagena area. More than a century later, in 1913, Don Julio Arango y Parra, a descendent of the Dictador established Destileria Colombiana, honoring his forefather with continued excellence in Rum production, as well as Gin.

Dictador Solera 20 YO is one of the World's most awarded Rums. It's also the winner of the Flaviar Community Award 2017 - Flaviaristas know a good Rum when they see it.

It is made from the fermentation of virgin sugar cane honey and distilled partly in copper alembic and partly in steel continuous column. It's aged in second-fill oak barrels using the solera method. Over a period of 28 days it is brought down to bottling strength by demineralised water. Drop-by-drop as they would say.

Bill
Bill,
Well balanced, smooth and rich with a great caramel flavor the has a chocolate and slight citrus note. Amazing rum for the price point.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Honey in the forefront. Hints of coffee and bit of heat
 
Scott
Scott,
Easily in my top 5 rums. Sweet, sweet vanilla.
 
Jens
Jens,
The smokey flavor isn't really my thing, so keep that in my when seeing the review. Prefer something like Plantation XO 20th and Ron Cartvaio XO.
 
Michael
Michael,
I like the complexity and richness - worth a bottle.
 
Michael
Michael,
My wife and I love the smell. This is an outstanding rum, with a great finish.

Desirae,
The smell alone was tasteful. Every sip was delicious. Favorite!
 
Cory
Cory,
Very rich and tasty. It almost resembled a great port wine, very easy to sip.
 
Jackie
Jackie,
Nice sweet aftertaste
 
Raoul
Raoul,
My first rum after a long time. A bit disappointing: high alcohol and unpolished, not as much taste and flavor as the Barbados or Venezuelan rums.
 
Kelly
Kelly,
I'm typically a Scotch and red wine girl and bought this to try something different. The reviews and flavour Spiral seemed quite accurate to me. I enjoy the rich aroma and could definitely get the hints of toffee and muscovado sugar. Has a slight bite to start, though finishes smooth and sweet. Not the kind to mix with anything other than a cube. Can this replace my port for a apres-dinner digestif? Pairs best next to the fireplace with a cozy blanket and good conversation. Make it a long pour!
 
Mathew
Mathew,
I’m not generally into rum, but this is excellent. It’s like maple candy with spices and hints of vanilla. It’s still a tad sweet for my taste but I didn’t know rum could be this good.

Eric,
Likely the best rum Ive ever tried. Just wow.
 
Josh
Josh,
This was in the Flaviar Awards 2017 tasting box. It was my least favorite, but I'm not really that big into rum (so take this review with a grain of salt). It tasted a lot like brown sugar to me.
 
Scott
Scott,
Sweet with a hint of smoke
 
Brady
Brady,
Aroma presents a smoky and surprisingly fresh, plant-like smell. This may be due to the virgin sugar cane. Taste is very smooth! You can taste the virgin sugar cane - pure at the forefront. The rum-like spiciness is tailed by honey flavor. Not too sweet though, for a coffee-maple factor follows after that, and lingers on the palate. The flavor spiral™ on this one correlates nicely. Very palatable, and unique. A delicious twenty year aged rum, making it a must try!

The aroma reminded me of butterscotch. Very smooth palate sweet like honey with a little oak. I thought it was whiskey initially. Very nice!

Very different rum from others. Not as strong in terms of alcohol, but very rich in taste it's taste of oak and honey. Definitely a recommended rum!

Rich, sweet. "Smoky honey" is right; this is richly flavored and has huge molasses taste.
