Top 30 Rums Countdown # 18 – Dictador 20 Year Solera
Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 7, 2012
According to the Dictador website, the Dictador 20 Year Old Solera Rum is the result of the fermentation of a mixture of virgin sugar cane honey which has been distilled in part from alembic copper pot stills and in part from continuous column stills. This is a solera aged rum with the oldest rum in the bottle being at least 20 years of age. It is bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume in a stylish black 700 ml bottle. The Dictador website explains that the rum is produced in Colombia, more exactly, on the Caribbean coast of Colombia at Cartagena de Indias City, and is named for Arango Y Ferro who was nicknamed ‘Dictador’ by the local population of Cartagena de Indias as he rose to prominence in the trade and commerce between the Spanish Colonies and Spain (sometime after 1751).
This is the second rum from Dictador which has ended up on my Countdown list placing itself at number 18:
“… The aroma from the glass is heavily tainted with oak and baking spice. I smell dark brown sugars and toffee which grows stronger and deeper as the glass decants. A hint of maple sits in the breezes. And accents of cinnamon, nutmeg as well as a firm dash of vanilla rise up to complement the strong oak aroma…”
The Dictador 20 year Old Solera Blend is a suave, yet rich rum experience!
