Dictador Best of 1987 Altisimo 30 Year Old Rum (700ml)
Dictador is produced in Colombia on the Caribbean coast at Cartagena de Indias city. The "Best of" expressions are small batch runs exemplifying the finest and oldest barrels in Dictador's warehouses. Selections are made from an immense collection of barrels, some of which have been maturing since the opening of the distillery in 1913. It ranks as one of the most significant stocks of rare rums in the world today.
The liquids for these old vintages are carefully chosen by Master Distiller, Hernan Parra for their deep, luxurious qualities. Each sees a slight twist on maturation. For the 'Altisimo' release, Dictador have employed barrels with the unique signature of Scotch whisky, aiming to bring the fragrance and tastes of floral malt, peat smoke, minerals and peel into one majestic blend. Like all of Dictador's rums, this is distilled from sugar cane honey (a concentrated version of sugarcane juice) rather than molasses. Sugar cane honey is essentially filtered and partially evaporated sugar cane juice. It’s thicker, keeps longer than fresh juice and is less 'processed' than molasses. It also tends to be more flavoursome. These are all natural rums with zero colouring and no added sugar. With just 300 bottles of the 'Best of 1987' on offer worldwide, our allocation is next to nothing. 45% Alc./Vol.
