Dictador 12 yo
The rum: Dictador 12 yo
Distilled: not indicated
Bottled: ca 2013
Nose: Ohh yeah…this is so pleasant! Coffee and mocha all the way, accompanied by brown sugar, cinnamon and some vanilla. Not your typical rum kind of nose. Different but very promising. Also some dried fruit and nicely balanced oak.
Taste: Maybe a little less sweet on the palate, it hits you again with these very nice coffee and mocha flavours. Somewhere on the background I can also detect some citrus. And again, these really nice oaky touches. Also some charred flavours: burned wood maybe
Finish: The oak really starts to kick in now, but never turning towards more bitter flavours. The coffee is everlasting long, now more accompanied by dried fruits.
Our Score: 18/20
Remarks: Solera matured, with the oldest rum in the bottle being 12 yo.
