This beautiful Dictador 20 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 vanilla, smoky honey, sticky toffee and toasted seeds on the nose, before a very soft and well-rounded mouthfeel brings cocoa, salted caramel and more vanilla. The finish is long and sweet, with just a bit of that smoky honey creeping back through to top it off.
It’s a truly magnificent expression that has already picked up well over 10 prestigious awards at spirits competitions around the world. If you love rum, you’re going to be in your element with this one.
