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.

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’.

Delicious, with heavy maple notes but subtle floral notes as well.
 
Matt
Matt,
Not a huge rum drinker but for those who are and enjoy coffee notes, this is a rum for you.
 
Rick
Rick,
This rum did not do it for me. I prefer a rum that has more going for it.
 
Harvey
Harvey,
Dictator has a rich and creamy flavor that makes it a great tequila to sip. Vanilla and citrus fruit mix to provide a back of the lounge/mouth experience.
 
William
William,
Best rum i have ever had
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Not normally a rum guy, this stuff is pretty good. Oak, vanilla and caramel taste and smell. Much smoother than I thought it'd be.
 
Dave
Dave,
Redefines rum in my book - fantastic
 
Alejandro
Alejandro,
This is my first bottle from Colombia so I drink it as I take it, unstirred w/o rocks dry from the bottle excellent flavors. Some grilled white fish would be best or clamshells depending in your appetite. I’ll seek for more

Angela,
Oaky, vanilla nose. Strong caramel flavoring, with some burn. Over ice and it's really smooth
 
Edwin
Edwin,
It was one of the best aged rums I've had. The caramel notes are amazing, and go fantastic with some aged cheese
 
Harvey
Harvey,
Great rum for the price. Smooth and rich in flavor this is a real best but.

Cocoa rum! Full of Body and rly sweet, but not as Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. Caramel, Brown Sugar + Cocoa, great for sipping without rocks.
 
Danny
Danny,
Lots of tobacco and black pepper. It has a warm finish.
 
Brian
Brian,
Highly overrated. I would not recommend drinking this neat or on the rocks. It's decent for mixers, though it skews the drinks a bit sweet. Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is a much better rum in the same price bracket. Most $30 bottles you can get from any liquor store are better than this.
 
Cesar
Cesar,
Very smooth and a bit sweet.

Timothy,
Too sweet for my taste, thought I was drinking southern comfort mixed with cough medicine
 
Howard
Howard,
It's a misrepresentation to say it is 12 year old rum. Solera rum is not a specific year. That said, it isn't bad rum for the $$, but Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva is better in my opinon.
 
Howard
Howard,
Smooth, but extremely sweet. Strong maple syrup flavor. Priced about right if you like this much sweetness. Very different from Parce 12 year.
 
David
David,
Tastes like something I would put on pancakes. A lot of maple flavor with a hint of butter. Not a bad taste, but not something that i would always reach for. But it does offer a change of taste.
 
Brian
Brian,
Very nice sipper. Especially if you are in the mood for something sweet

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.

Sweet aftertaste with a hint of coffee

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!
 
Tony

Very Smooth
 
Kyle
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.
