La Hechicera (Spanish for "the enchantress") is a rum which contains rums aged from 12-21 years. This Colombian rum has been available in several markets, most notably the UK as of 2012. This product was launched in the US in the summer of 2017 in select markets with an updated label to reflect the solera aging. The rum claims no additives or sugar added.

  • Aged Rum
    Rum 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".

Tasting Notes

"This rum shows very attractive aromatics of caramelized sugar, orange sorbet, bananas foster, and a hint of dried mint. Behind the more indulgent scents there is an umami-clad funk that keeps the drink from becoming too decadent. The palate has a pleasant sweetness and is medium bodied and transitions to a finish with a touch of alcoholic burn. Overall, this is a quality introduction to sipping rum."
