La Hechicera Extra Anejo rum Is distilled using the solera method and aged between 12 and 21 years in American white oak casks.
La Hechicera rum has been produced by the The Riasco family for the past two decades. They're the only family-run Rum distillery in Colombia. The rum derives its name from the Spanish word “Hechicera” which translates to “enchantress”.
Rich aroma of dark fruit and some burnt sugar with very little alcohol smell. First sip is very pleasant with a subtle oak and medium sweetness with a dark coffee profile. Slight bite in the throat but a gentle heat in the chest that lingers surprisingly long (might be that Kali Ma ritual from last night). The back end is where the coffee flavor is most noticeable but not overpowering. It makes for some bitterness but in a good way. This rum isn't incredible, but doesn't make many mistakes.
As a rum aficionado this is hands down one of the best rums I have ever tasted. Dry, incredibly smooth and an aroma to die for this is a beautiful tribute to what rum should taste like in its unadulterated form. I came across this on the back of a very much appreciated recommendation, hard to find but worth every effort in tracking down.
a very creamy scent of caramel and some sorts of toffee. in the mouth it is creamy and smooth. harmonic. round. no edges. for some moments to chill. i taste orange and coffee notes. maybe some tobacco. in the base it has to do with dictador rum, but in the end it adds the orange twist to it. very good stuff, i think and of course no added sugar. in the end it lacks one point to ten, because of its harmonic taste without any edge :).
A well balanced rum, an excellent one. Eye Catching bottle and a very affordable price.
Obvykle dávám přednost nasládlým rumům, ale tento, ač je téměř opak, si mě po čase získal.
Suchý rum, ale bez ostrosti, kterou často mají. Naopak docela jemný. Pravda je, že ničím vlastně moc nevyniká, chuť je relativně jednochuchá - ovšem v jednochosti je někdy síla. Pokud chcete změnu po sladčích kouscích, určitě lze doporučit. Jen budete možná potřebovat víc času si na něj zvyknout a najít jeho slunce.
Duft: appelsin, karamel, tobak
Smag: smager som den dufter. Slår over i chokolade og træ i eftersmagen.
ale chute pro me nezajimavy rum. Ale pri degustaci mel uspech, me nejak minul :-(
Nose: orange peel and toffee.
Pallet: coffee and tobacco with a medium pleasent burn.
Velmi dobrý rum hlavně pro ty, kteří mají rádi chuť tabáku a pražené kávy. Pro mě osobně trochu ostřejší.
Suchý rum, který ocení zkušenější pijaci rumu ;) Krásná láhev a krásný obsah :)
Its very specific in nose as well as in mouth. People who enjoy aromatic rums will love its smoothness and fruity taste. People who look for something more mature and distinguished should look somewhere else.
a mild rum a bit flat unfortunately but still good to drink.
A very fairly priced solera rum, supposedly additive free. The nose is nice with wooden notes, orangepeel and a bit of toffee. In the mouth the rum behaves smoothly like a solera should, but it's not destractingly sweet like so many other solera. I pick up medium bodied and unmasked notes of wood, sweet tobacco and roasted coffee. It's not very complex and the slightly spicy finish fades fairly quick, but the composition works very well. A fine rum that doesn't demand to much attention, but works perfectly neat alongside a game of cards. It definitely shares some similarities with dictador, another colombian rum, but at this pricerange i prefer la hechicera. Thumbs up.
In the nose there is something special, maybe caramel, maybe toffee. The taste includes many different tones, chocalate, coffee, caramel. Really great.
Delicious this what to expect ffrom a medium to dry rum delicate balance that is awsome
C''est la famille Riascos qui produit ce Rhum, un rhum plutôt sec...mais pas trop tout de même, en plus d''être très bon le design de cette bouteille est tout simplement magnifique!
Really a good discovery during an event in Belgium. Once in the glass, the Hechicera shows its nice light amber color accompanied of small lazy legs.Once you sip it , even with no added sugar, you realise that it is really smooth with a little gentle burn. On the aroma point of view, you will found toffee, tobacco and some fruit.
It is always a pleasure to grab the bottle out of the bar and enjoy a well served glass of this delicious rum :-D
Found accidently in Bogotá in a Jumbo store. (You cannot really find it even in COL.) The first catchy thing was the appearence of the bottle, and the price also indicated it was something above the others. It has a harmonic taste and aroma, you can clearly feel the caramel, but also a bit of alcoholic burn. A very good rum, much enjoyable, definitely a must-to-try, if you have the possibility.
Coffee and cacao in the nose. The same on the tongue, with some hard to identify fruit. Plums? A bit rough though - meaning that the alcoholic burn sets in pretty fast. The finishing then again nice and smooth, a little bitter, coffee again.
Un Ron sec typé boisé goût de caramel normal d'orange onctueux puis sec en bouche
Un final de type cubain sec arôme de tabac cuir chocolat
Fin god rom. Lidt forskelligt smags nuancer. Lidt spændende.
I read all the reviews and was convinced enough by them to buy a bottle at over €50 which isnt cheap. I love the bottle and colour but thats where the good ends. I'm very let down by this. I've sipped and mixed it but just cannot get a balance, it needs some fresh lime to help make it palatible. Every time I sniff or taste all I can think of is Sherry. Not Rum. Big disappointment for the money and anticipation from the reviews, I really want to like this Rum but I cant recommend it. I'm not getting much from it other than mild toffee, mild cream but a fair whack of molasses. I think I would rate Kraken and Sailor Jerry (albeit it spiced rums) as better and they are entry level rums!
Don't waste your money.
ocekavani zadne, vubec jsem netusil. po ochutnani neuveritelne prijemna chut bez vyraznejsich tonu, dovoluje plne si vychutnat kazdy dousek. urcite jeden ze skvelych rumu!
