Dictador is a Columbian Solera Rum, distilled in Catagena. It's a medium bodied, complex blend of premium aged rums with full, rich flavour. It is a sugar cane spirit rum, giving fresh cane juice flavours, intermingled with oak and spice.
You will find this rum nicely balanced and very complex. Light oak flavours lead up front without devouring the other flavours.
The rum is not sweet, however, it's rich and very soft with a slightly oily mouth-feel. There is a good amount of oak tannin and citrus zest which leads out and makes everything mildly spicy. This sensation is quickly followed by flavours of dark toffee which have turned slightly to treacle, and a moderate amount of vanilla oak. A yummy marzipan which reminiscent of toasted almonds smothered in roasted marshmallows is nestled nicely under the oak and spice. A touch of coffee, a hint of ripe cherry, and more charred flavours (perhaps some toasted coconut) seem to arrive at the end with a sherry-like smokiness which also brings nuances of dry fruit and cocoa to the fore.
Dictador 12yo is very nice sipping rum!
