Dictador Best of 1979 41.8% ABV

Dictador Best of 1979 41.8% ABV Rum review by the fat rum pirateDictador Best of 1979 41.8% ABV. A rum almost as old as my good self. Just a year out from my date of birth. Dictador have released a number of these “Best of” rums over the past couple of years. All with quite a lot of ageing to them. On the surface at least.

Dictador state that the “Best Of” series represent a selection from the best and oldest vintages from their collecfion. This collectionhas been developing for over 100 years – since the opening of their distillery in 1913. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Dictador Distillery Icon Reserve Aged 20 Years Solera System Rum

Dictador Distillery Icon Reserve Aged 20 Years Solera System Rum review by the fat rum pirateDictador Distillery Icon Reserve Aged 20 Years Solera System Rum.  Quite a mouthful but thats what they’ve put on the label.  Quite how Aged 20 Years and “Solera System Rum” works is anyones guess, however.

Dictador are a rum brand from Colombia. They also have lines of coffee, cigars and gin.  I’ve not been around the rum scene for that long but Dictador 12 was one of the first “premium” rums I bought.  I reviewed it in the early days of this blog. As was one of the aims of this blog I have learnt a great deal about rum since then.  I won’t revisit that review until I have completed this one.  I don’t recall being blown away by Dictador 12 though.

The rum hails from Colombia.  It is produced at Industria Licocera de Caldas.  As a result of this quite a lot of the information available online is in Spanish.  I’ve tried translating things but the free translation tools are pretty naff.  So I’ve cobbled together what I could find in English.

La Hechicera

LA HECHICERA RUM REVIEW BY THE FAT RUM PIRATELa Hechicera pronounced etch-ee-see-rah is Spanish for enchantress.  The rum is a product of Colombia.  I have previously given a very favourable review to a Colombian rum – Dictador 12.  The rum is produced by Casa Santana Ron Y Licores.  The rum is marketed as fine aged premium sipping rum.  Information available suggests that the rum is produced using the “solero” method.  With rums aged between 12 and 21 years. No age statement is present on the bottle or alluded to. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Dictador 12 Year Rum Review ColombiaA 12 Year Old Solero System rum not from Guatemala, Puerto Rco or the Dominican Republic but the home of marching powder and Rene Higuita. Yes, thats right Colombian rum.  Rum from Colombia. 

Again I found this online and as it was reduced (and I’m easily seduced by price reductions) I thought it was worth a spin at £30. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
