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, honouring 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 was also the winner of the Flaviar Community Award 2017 in its respective category!

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 for 20 years. The oldest Rum in the bottle is at least 20 years old. Over a period of 28 days it is brought down to bottling strength by demineralised water. Drop-by-drop as they would say.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof’.

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