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 20yr 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 20 years. They say it is an intense dark amber color with "high and rare" textures.

One of the best dry rums i have tasted. Has rich aromas of coffee, vanilla, butterscotch with molasses and hints of fruits. On the palate you get the same notes with surprisingly dry finish. If you like the above flavor profile yet want a dry taste this is an excellent choice.
