Proof66 Notes

Dictador rums are made in Colombia in the city of Cartagena de Indias, as proudly proclaimed on all of their bottles. The rum is named for the person of Severo Arango y Ferro who in the 18th century came to the Colombia to encourage prosperous colonial trade with Spain. Through political power, he earned the name "Dictador." The Destileria Comobiana was established din 1913 by his descendant, Don Julio Arango y Parra. In modern times, the rum label considers itself an international brand offered in European styled bottles.

Dictador 12yr Icon Reserva Solera rum is an aged rum... the solera system is a method of retaining a portion of the oldest barrel of rum to blend with the next oldest, rather like a bit of the gas in your last car's tank is in the the following tank. In this way, there are some very old rums present in every bottle to season the younger... in this case, the oldest being 12 years.

After trying the 20yr Solera i decided to taste its younger sibling to compare. Boy was i dissapointed. Like the 20yr has pronounced coffee aroma to it with hint of vanilla. On the palate you get fruitiness with some molasses and has some unpleasant notes like rubber with rather rough finish. Although this has good aroma, i was not impressed with this. Maybe the 20yr and some other rums i tried just spoiled my tastebuds...
