Review: Dictador Cafe 100 Month Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 6, 2016

Dictador Cafe SAM_2681Recently Dictador released what they call their 100 Month Series which includes four new rums all aged for 100 months. Unlike the more premium Dictador Solero Aged Rums, the 100 month series is meant to be a gateway series consisting of spirits which are meant to be embraced both as entry-level sipping rums as well as cocktail spirits.

The Dictador Cafe 100 Month Aged Rum was created to be a discerning spirit for the rum and coffee enthusiast. The base rum within the flavoured spirit is a continuous column still rum which was aged (for 100 months) in ex-bourbon oak barrels. At maturity the rum was filtered through Colombia’s most well know agricultural product, 100 % pure Arabica Coffee beans.

The final flavoured rum was then bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my review:

Review: Dictador Cafe 100 Month Rum

“… The cafe aroma from the glass is inviting, however it masks the rum-like scents of butterscotch toffee, vanilla and baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves). The absence of a cloying sweetness within the breezes is refreshing; however it does hint that a firm coffee-like bitterness may be present when we sip the flavoured rum …”

Please enjoy my review, and stay tuned for further reviews of some very unique flavoured rums and spirits in the coming weeks.

Chimo!

    It does indeed seem a bit hard and limited to mix at first, I was browsing my cocktail list, especially the rum and coffee liqueur section and it sparked a few ideas that might be worth a try:
    – Cafe Rum Old Fashioned?
    – A sour with cafe rum, lemon and/or orange, sugar or maybe even maple syrup.
    You might also consider throwing some limoncello or the Dictador Orange Rum into the mix. Google Coffee Granita for inspiration.
    – Dairy based cocktails are a sure hit like an adaptation on the White Russian, just sweeten to taste with sugar syrup. Dairy is such an obvious pairing with coffee. But alternatively if you want to take a more tropical approach use coconut milk/cream. Also think of the Bushwacker or the Dirty Monkey cocktails.

    • Thanks for the suggestions Keijo 🙂

      The adapted White Russian looks promising to me. Perhaps later I will give it a try and if it works out, I’ll publish the recipe.

      Cheers!
