Part of Dictador’s greatest hits “Best of” collection, this is the very finest rum that the company produced in the year of 1976. Each bottling in this collection is made with casks carefully selected by the master distiller and blender, Hernan Parra.
A very interesting rum, this is sort of produced like a “single barrel, single vintage solera”. Parra uses just one barrel (in this case a sherry cask), and adds to it strictly spirit from the same year, to control evaporation whilst retaining the integrity of the vintage.
After such a prodigiously long maturation, this rum has developed some truly extraordinary flavours. Drinkers can expect superbly intense flavours of honey, dark sugar, rich dried fruits, preserved citrus rind, some old oak, fried bananas, espresso and dark chocolate.
The mouthfeel is silky and coating, benefitting from a strength of 46.4% ABV.
A beautifully presented rum, with a wax seal closure. Only 302 hand labelled and signed bottles were released, so this is a real rarity. Simply stunning.
