Dictador 12 Year Solera System Rum
Dictador // Colombia
This rum is distilled from what is referred to as “virgin sugar cane honey” or cane syrup instead of molasses like most sugar-based spirits. It is distilled in a combination of alembic and column stills and is aged in ex-American whiskey barrels for up to 12 years.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"Notes of vanilla, roasted nuts, coffee, dried dates, and baking spices present themselves along with wet potting soil. Heat persists on the palate but the flavor is fairly pleasant with notes of vanilla, under-ripe sugarcane, mixed nuts, cocoa nibs, and caramel before a strong, lingering metallic note on the finish."
