This stunning Dictador 12 Year Old Rum was created in Cartagena, Colombia, as is the case with all Dictador rums. It is made from the fermentation of virgin sugar cane honey distilled partly in copper alembic and also in a steel continuous column in order to achieve a delicious medium bodied spirit. It is then matured in pre-used oak barrels which impart an incredible array of notes on to the already charismatic spirit.
Expect soft caramel, honey and dry-roasted coffee on the nose before dark chocolate and a little more honey on the palate. The finish is long with a light oakiness creeping through to top it all of.
It’s a truly wonderful expression that has already picked up a number of Gold and Double-Gold medals at spirits awards competitions around the world. This is one that any rum-lover will cherish.
