Dictador 12 Years Old 70cl 40°

Brand : Dictador / Country : Colombia / Reference: : 22384

Aged in a solera system, Dictador rum harks you back to the world of Sherry. The solera system consists in regularly assembling spirits of various ages so that the older ones "nurture" the younger ones, through a process that may take several years.

On the palate, this rum reveals a freshness and a renewed liveliness not quite disclosed on the first inhalations. Thanks to the skills of its cuban maker, the Dictabor style is not too syrupy and shows remarkable elegance and richness.
