Intoducing Dictador Rum
Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 1, 2010
I was first introduced to the Dictador Rums about six months ago when I convinced Paul Charabin of PB Beverages to drop in on one of the monthly gatherings of The Edmonton Rum Chums . He brought a couple of bottles of the new Dictador Rum (The 12-year-old and the 20-year-old).
Dictador is a product which melds European style with Colombian rum, and crowns the presentation in elegant Japanese bottles. The product exudes class and luxury and practically has your mouth-watering before you even open the bottle.
Of course this begs the question, did the crafters of the rum pay as much attention to the contents, as they did to the container? In a nutshell, the answer is undeniably…Yes! Oh My Yes!
I have sampled this rum twice, the first time in February at that meeting of the Edmonton Rum Chums, and the second time in Miami, at Rum Renaissance. Each time I was completely taken in by the Dictador style and the rich vibrant rum inside the bottles. The rum is a medium bodied complex blend of premium aged rums with a full rich flavour profile. The 12-year-old is luxuriously smooth in spite of the rich flavours, and the 20-year-old brings the extra complexity of a long aged rum to the fore without the bitterness and harshness which can come with age. I am hard pressed to choose between them. Fortunately for me, I was promised sample bottles of each to put through the paces of my review system, and you can be sure that I will provide all of you with more details as soon as they are available. Until then…Cheers!
