In the interest of full disclosure I approach my personal review knowing that Dictator is one of my favorite brands.
With that being said, let me tell you about the Claro 100...
First off the "100" refers to how many months it has been aged (a little over 8 years). Interestingly even after that long the color is a pale yellow which makes me wonder if it has been charcoal filtered at some point.
On an aside, I don't know who is responsible for quality control on the bottles but the metal screw cap was substandard and would not release thereby stripping the groove and making it difficult to open. Eventually I managed to coax...force would be a better word...into opening but it wouldn't seal properly after that. Time for a re-design.
Swirling it in my snifter revealed good legs and a very pleasant aroma.
The flavor is quite nice...vanilla, oak, pepper, and a hint of caramel. Sticks to the tongue for a while and has a little burn in the back of the throat.
Definitely a nice sipping rum. Personally I think this is a worthy beach rum. Could be used well in a mixed drink but I would personally recommend it for sipping and relaxing.
