Hand-filled, hand-labelled and individually numbered bottles, the Dictador Best of 1979 Rum boasts a nose of vanilla pod, freshly ground coffee beans, butterscotch and sweet almond aromas. Balanced, rich and layered, the more time this spends in contact with the air the more intense and expansive the flavours become, unveiling notes of rose, cinnamon spice, dark bittersweet orange and caramel. Hedonism at its finest.
Named after Severa Arango y Ferro who arrived in Colombia in the 18th century to collect taxes for Spain, which earned him the name “Dictador”, the company was founded by one of his direct descendants, Don Julia Arango y Parra, in 1913. Dictador's rums are produced in Cartagena using sugar cane honey rather than molasses, which produces a much higher calibre of rum with a fresher nose, well-integrated alcohol and a naturally lighter colour.
