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.

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.
