The Rum maker's Gin.

In 1913, Don Julio Arango y Parra founded Destilería Colombiana in Cartegeña, Colombia. For most of their history they have distilled high quality Rum for other brands and blends. But in 2009, investors from nearby Barranquilla, Colombia, joined forces with Don Julio’s grandson Herńan to help launch a private label brand — Dictador Rum. Huge success followed — along with several prestigious awards — and they now have eight Rums, two Gins, three custom-wrapped cigars, and a private brand of coffee. It’s as if they were trying to bundle all the best vices in the highest quality under one roof.

Dictador Treasure Colombian Aged Gin has all the information you need on the label. The Dictador distillery has been producing very high quality Rums for more than a century, so their Gins are sugarcane-based and distilled five times. It is aged for 35 months in ex-Rum casks — which gives it a light amber color and surprising smoked-toffee note in the fore-palate. And they named it “Treasure”… well, because it tastes that good. They keep the botanical mix a secret, but juniper, citrus zest, and a floral are there, plus a strong influence from their signature ingredientLimon Mandarino, which is a hybrid of mandarin orange and lemon.

SmartAss Corner: 
When it comes to liquor, Columbia operates as 32 different markets and Dictador is only available in two of them. That’s because local governments are allowed to control access and tax liquor for revenue, so politicians have a strong incentive to only allow certain “politically friendly” spirits to be sold in their regions.

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by vodka, lobster or pomegranate. They say the original and only real Martini consists of Gin, vermouth & olives, period!

Aaron,
Super citrusy, very nice orange presence, love this. Unfortunately it was in a tasting kit yet not for sale in the bottle, this happens quite often here at Flaviar- get shown something you love, but oh sorry, you can't buy it.

Charlotte,
The first scents are citrus. Lots of orange and tangerine. Then after it aerated mint came through with some lemon and sweetness. The first flavor was orange with some bitterness. As it sits on the tongue the black pepper and spice come through. Then it finishes with a very floral aftertaste with a hint of sweet. I would enjoy this as a sipper or mixer. It’s very balanced.

Travis,
Amazing! The citrus flavors are very prominent yet this gin is quite smooth. An extremely enjoyable drink especially if you enjoy citrus.
 
Hans
Hans,
The strait forward citrus, all though great smoothness, and the sweet orange coming up, a little subtile juniper in the end - makes this a real good gin. It´s great to sip, just as it is, strait from the bottle. Nice!

Raoul,
The lemon zest and tangerine are striking, as are the botanicals and juniper berries. Living in Schiedam, Netherlands it’s always nice to surprise neighbors with this very different gin. Nevertheless not my own favorite, but that’s personal. It’s a nice gin with a reasonable aftertaste.

The citrus forward and smoothness of the aging makes this a perfect as straight, no chaser gin.

William,
Unique citrusy flavored gin, smooth and pleasant for a little added twist to classic gin drinks. Botanicals are not overpowering in this one.
