Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Do not be confused by the dark bottle, it hides an excellent rum. The aroma of chocolate, coffee, nuts... smooth nose. The taste then presents a soft bitter sweet tone, you feel both chocolate and coffee. In the throat you feel only smooth and pleasant warmness. The afterburn keeps on long and is really fine.
I am looking forward to trying the Insolent one.
Voici un très bon rhum très doux,
Au nez, il est sur la vanille et l'amande. En bouche, on retrouve la douceur de la vanille et le miel. La finale est longue et agréable :)
A conseiller !!
On the nose it's almost like a coffee liquor. Taste is honey-sweet (but not too much) with coffee and chocolate. Definitely different too anything I've tasted so far, which I consider positive. Makes me curious about the 20y...
Schöne Flasche. Riecht nach caramel. Im Geschmack etwas viel Holznote.
Compared to 20y it was quite disappointing experience. Not complex enough, kinda lacking afterburn, too much coffee (even I'm ok with it).
A bit stronger, not sweet.
Nose: Coffee, quite strong alcoholic smell.
Taste: Very strong, warms you up a lot. The end is with really intensive coffee taste.
I quite like it, however, not one of my favourites :)
Well over 700 aged rums tasted during the past 15 years and I had very high expectations on the Dictador rum family. The Dictador 12 year was a big disappointment to me. Flavor profile is very cluttered, smell is off putting and a very strong afterburn leads me to believe that the 12 and 20 year old Dictadors have a very long way to reach the maturity of the XO brands.
nice rum similar to abuelo 7. a little bit stronger afterburn. i would expect more from nr 12 written on the label.
Not too sweet similar to Zacapa 23 but with less complex aroma and taste.
I can't say anything good about this rum. The small is boring and the taste was like a home brewed snaps. Sorry to say.
Beautiful dark color. Nice and sweet but at least for me too much of a coffee taste which overshadows a bit the 'real' rum flavors. Still enjoyable!
What's up with Dictador rums and their sweet coffee taste? This 12yo juice is very flavorful...if you like coffee liqueur. There is no way that their rums all have the coffee profile by accident. I'm guessing that the bottling machines need a thorough cleaning. Maybe the Dictador people add some sort of sweetener and coffee extract(?). This is tasty, but it's not pure rum by anyone's guess.
Voici un rhum très sympa aux arômes de café, tiramisu. Il n'est pas sucré c'est un rhum plutôt sec sans acidité, l'alcool est présent sans être envahissant. En finale on retrouve le café sur des notes plus douces et toujours sans le côté grillé. Cependant, c'est un rhum fabriqué et bricolé par l'ajout de tout un tas de choses pas très naturelles....
Flavours are amazing in this one and have a real depth... Lovely smell and taste on the rocks aa
Mir gefällt dieser Rum sehr gut. Hat eine leicht merkliche Kaffeenote die zusammen mit der leichten Süße einen wunderbar runden Geschmack ergibt. Dieser Rum landet in meiner Bar!
Un rhum assez doux. Bonne longueur en bouche.
Très agréable pour tous.
if you like whisky this one is for you...smells alcohol too..
An tasty rum coffe and cacao flavour cuban cigar. Best served on the rocks.
Un rom foarte distins, cu o aroma deosebita. Se simt nuante foarte puternice de tabac si cafea, spre final se simt arome de citrice si miere. Merita incercat.
Nose: Eh? Should this smell like the rubbery stuff the bottle is coated in – probably not, but it does. Weird. When the smell of latex catsuit (don’t ask) goes away there is some coffee in there, think roasted beans rather than brewed. Some smoky tobacco and prunes, quite earthy. Caramel and some vanilla too. Smells “manufactured”.
Palate: Let’s hope this is better. Argh! That rubber again, where does that come from?! Well, mouth-feel is pretty good at least – quite oily. Ah, better now; dry actually, I was expecting a sweeter rum. Smoky again, earthy leaves and raisins. Not really much oak. Honey on burnt toast and then some of that coffee (brewed and black this time) as it moves to the finish.
Finish: Short to medium and no rubber, phew. Ends sweeter than the palate and has some bitter oak as it tails off, smoky again.
Thoughts? Minus to rubber and coffee this would be a very ubiquitous rum, and I think I’d prefer that to what they've done to it to give it “character”
Toujours débutant en dégustation de rhum, je dois dire que c'est celui qui me reste en bouche le plus longtemps. Très bon gout épicé et doux qui se prolonge encore et encore. Très agréable et pas du tout agressif. A découvrir pour tout nouvel adepte dans ce monde du rhum !
Tant par sa bouteille noire que par l originalite de son gout.ce rhum tant par sa bouteille originale que don gout atypique est a avoir en tant que collectionneur.son nez tres puissant sur des notes d anis et surtout de cafe.ces notes se confirment en dehustation.cerhum est doux sec et se rapproche presque d un wisky.le cafe prend le dessus et c est agreable.ce n est pas mon prefere mais il vous fera voyager au pays du cafe: la colombie. Note 7.2.
This rum has notes of coffee, honey, smoke, cinnamon, oak, vanilla, spice, and rubber. It's a little dry for a rum, which is fine, but it also feels a little harsh to me, as do most of the Dictador rums. I'm not sure if it's just me that notices this; maybe it's the spice? Good, but not one of my favorites.
