This elegant and delicious Dictador XO Insolent 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 that previously housed sherry or port from Jerez, Spain, and these impart an incredible array of notes on to the already charismatic spirit. The master-blenders then work their magic to create something that delivers an absolute taste sensation that you’re not likely to forget in a hurry.
Intricate aromas of crushed vanilla pods, rich oak, sweet caramel and gentle honey are apparent on the nose before smooth fudge, gentle oak, Colombian coffee and fresh cocoa delight the palate. The finish is just as brilliant, with more rich oak and smoky honey creeping through and lasting right up until you next sip.
It’s a fantastic and elegant creation that has picked up a number of prestigious awards at spirits competitions around the world. A real must-have for any rum-lovers out there.
