Dictador 2 Masters is a series of extremely rare, strictly limited editions of Columbian rums.
Each of them was first carefully selected by Dictador’s Master Blender, Hernan Parra. Next, they travelled to various localities where other tipples are made, and were “processed” further by local masters. The processing meant selecting appropriate casks that previously held those other tipples for further maturation of the rum, and thus enhancing the rum’s flavour profile by notes associated with whisky, cognac, Armagnac or top-quality wines. Each bottle of those limited editions is marked by a very special mark of quality – the fingerprint of Master Blender Hernan Parra of Dictador, and that of an appropriate master that took over the responsibility for the finishing of the rum.
Dictador 2 Masters Genfarclas 1972 is a 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. Limited to only 378 individually numbered bottles.
Nose: Undoubtedly a great old rum married into a superb whisky with very clear malted barley overtones, sherry notes, dark chocolate and dried apricots over the sweeter smell of maple syrup, melted brown sugar and tropical fruits.
Palate: 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.
