- Item #: i_116527Bottle Size: 750mlA 45-year-old Dictador Rum from a 1972 single vintage cask finished in fine port casks and then shipped to Glenfarclas in Scotland, where it further spent 7 months in a Glenfarclas 2002 third-fill Jerez Sherry cask. Bottled at 45% ABV.
Undoubtedly a great old rum married into a superb whisky with very clear malted barley overtones, sherry notes and dried apricots over the sweeter smell of maple syrup, melted brown sugar and tropical fruits.
The whisky somewhat fades into the background and gets overtaken by immensely rounded, rich liquid dried fruits with medjool dates, sun-dried raisins and acacia honey character, although without the sugar content, just pure aged rum. It kicks back in with incredible balance between the alcohol, fruit and acidity, going into a fabulous finish that just lingers for minutes once the “burn” is away and has notes of toffee, sweet tobacco and toasted coconut.
- Item #: i_116528Bottle Size: 750mlA 40-year-old Dictador Rum from a 1978 single vintage cask finished for 36 months in Sherry casks and then shipped to Hardy in Cognac, where it further spent two months in a magnificent 110-year old Hardy Limousin oak cask. Bottled at 48% ABV.
Immediate vanilla, fudge and butterscotch, but a character reminiscent of a great Cognac as well with some dried figs and apricots, then pencil shavings and hints of damp earth. Very complex.
This heady tipple coats the palate with an impressive array of flavonoids including an overlay of nutmeg on milk chocolate, toffee, sea-salt caramel and a beautiful softness without the sweetness, a great marriage. There is a rise on the mid-palate before it fades slowly into a minute-long supple and silky finish that is pierced only by flashes of oak, pure rum character and raisins.
