Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Back to solera rum for these both Dictador rum from Columbia. Time for Perpetual : Same beautiful dark color. The coffee, vanilla, honey, caramel and chocolate are present. This one is drier with a more robust body. The finish is also long. Dictador made two different rum with one dry , and the insolent more softer. This one should be better for rum connoisseur. To be also into your collection.
Way back in May of this year I wrote my thoughts on the Dictador XO Insolent rum giving it a well-deserved 9. I made that bottle last until now so I FINALLY broke out my bottle (poor choice of words) of Dictador XO Perpetual. And I ask myself, "What took you so long?!?"
If you read my review of the Insolent you are going to find me repeating myself in several areas. With that said...or written...let me get started.
I got this along with the Insolent at Total Wine and More in Jacksonville, FL.
As with the Insolent rum the Perpetual also is a deep and rich mahogany color with excellent legs and a fantastic aroma in my snifter. I swear I detect the hint of cinnamon and vanilla.
As with the Insolent rum the Perpetual is also not a sugared rum. However there is an initial sweetness to it that quickly changes to a tannin-driven slight dryness. A very perplexing but delightful balance.
I also detect toffee, coffee, and vanilla with a hint of cinnamon so apparently my olfactory system seems to be working.
I do like this rum. A lot.
I do notice similarities between my impressions of this rum as compared to the Dictador XO Insolent rum.
Which means I will need to do a side-by-side tasting to try to figure out, in my own weird way, what are the differences between the two rums.
Oh, if I only had another bottle of the Insolent rum.
I had a nice long weekend in St. Augustine before Hurricane Matthew about a month ago and stayed at the Edgewater Inn (wonderful motel at the end of the Lion Bridge -- sadly they received a lot of damage and are currently closed until repairs can be made -- I do plan on going back) and my wife and I drove up to Jacksonville to replenish some rums I found I really, really like but cannot get locally. Of course I got another bottle of the Dictador XO Perpetual and Insolent rums.
So I will soon be having a little side-by-side comparison with my thoughts appending both reviews.
Stay tuned, campers!
And this rum embodies what Coach Lombardi meant.
Ceva deosebit.. Exclusivist și rafinat. Un rom super premium dacă se poate numi așa. Am rămas plăcut impresionat. Merită 10 fără nicio îndoială dar mai există și INSOLENT-ul care chiar este 10.
Was on holliday near another german bordershop, so here we go, lots of new rom for the collection :D
The rum is excellent. it has a strong smell that continues into the body of Vina walnut. Perpetual is very smooth, with a silky finish that lasts and gives away aromas of vanilla and nut. My wife says she can feel also coffee and dark chocolate hints.
Very strong coffee taste and aftertaste. It's not necessarily bad, just really weird. Also, it's a little too boozy and not in a good way. This is a decent $25 rum. What's that you say? It sells for $100??!! Wow...
First impression is that you have buy a high quality rum. Provided with a very beaytiful packaging, you are not dissappointed when you open the bottle. Once served in your glass, you can admire the dark brown color of this devine liquid. In the mouth,you will find a taste of coffee with a little bit of toffee. The aftertaste is quite long. This rum is well balanced. Really a good one. The next one to taste will be his little Insolent brother ... Yummy !!!
Шоколад, фундук и грецкие орехи. Мёд. Нотка ванили...
Один из самых любимых ромов.
С хорошей сигарой, получается фантастический дуэт!
Once you open the bottle the smell of tobaco and coffee greets you with a smile on it's face.
When sipping it the same flavours shine through, with a kind of natural sweetness. After taste is quite long and strong, which was surprising as the rum itself is quite smooth.
Superb bottle, I like this Dictador´s bottles
Another good rum from Columbia , Nice dark color. Oily… coffee, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, honey, not so sweet, nice aftertaste
A very smooth tasting rum with subtle aromas. Dark in colour with subtle tastes of coffee and honey. Definitely worth buying
Alkohol: 40 %
Ochutnán ve srovnávacím testu s D 12, D 20 a XO Insolent.
Aroma: Ve vůni se nám vrací ke kávě a oproti Insolentu nám mizí lékořice. Koňakové tóny, hřebíček, hutná kůže, čokoláda. Přijde mi podobný D 20. V druhé vlně se vynoří hřejivost koření, hutnost je ještě o kousek dál a je tu i větrovost.(89 b)
Chuť: V chuti mi přijde o kousek zajímavější, než D 20 i Insolent. Je o něco plnější, kořenitější. Hřebíček, rumové pralinky. Bez sladkosti, jinak klasicky pro tuto značku koňak a čokoláda.(87 b)
Shrnutí: Značka se drží svého stylu, jede si to své a dělají to dobře.
Great rum. Quite complex taste with coffee, vanilla. Definitelly worth trying.
The aftertaste was sensational, but the way there isn´t really worth it
Had high hopes for this one as it seems to be highly rated by everyone. It's pretty good stuff but for this amount of coin I prefer the Ron Abuelo Centuria which might be the best rum I've tasted yet.
Une saveur très originale et virile: au nez ce rhum semble sucré, boisé voire corsé; en bouche c'est surprenant, des notes boisées et légèrement épicées se révèlent: des saveurs de noisettes et de café torréfié envahissent agréablement le palais, et persistent avec délice sur la longueur, avec des touches de vanille et de tabac. C'est plutôt délicieux! Vraiment original et doté d'une certaine robustesse, une réussite!
you would find this one a very good rum by itself.
but if you compare with it's sister products, especially lower priced ones, you may ask yourself why pay more for this when you can get similar high quality at lower prices.
tasty, sufficiently smooth, definitely well blended liquid.
Smooth taste and smell. Hints of vanilla Coffee and honey.
One of my favorite rum .Taste Coffe ,Honey and vanilla.
I really like the taste and smell of this rum!
Honey, coffee, toffee, oak, and even some bourbon.
But the aftertaste is harsh, just like it is with the Dictador 20 year, and this takes away from the overall goodness. I'm not sure if I'm the only one that feels the harsh aftertaste (I'm not reading about it in other people's reviews), but to me this makes it a less than exceptional rum. I prefer the Dictador XO Insolent to this, as it is sweeter and more rum like.
Nice vanilla, butterscotch flavours. Smooth finish and excellent sipper.
