Review: La Hechicera Solera 21

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 13, 2018

In the historic port of Barranquilla (Colombia), situated between the Magdalena River and the Caribbean Sea, three generations of the Riascos Family have been producing rums for over two decades. They apparently travel round the Caribbean sourcing their cane spirit which is matured using a solera system in used bourbon barrels.  The rum they create, La Hechicera is distributed in Western Canada by the Phillips Distilling Co.. The brand promotes itself as a naturally ‘unpolished’ rum. What they mean by ‘unpolished’ is that no additives or sugar have been added to create a smoother flavour profile.

La Hechicera Solera 21 is bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume and matured using ex-bourbon barrels in a Solera style to create a blend of rums between 12 years and 21 years old.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: La Hechicera Solera 21  

“… The rum carries a firm bite of oak spice and citrus zest forward. There are lightly bitter oak tannins which bring me impressions of coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate. There is also a firm fruity quality reminiscent of black berries and raisins. Adding to the menagerie of impressions are tastes of dark tobacco and licorice stained molasses. Roasted walnuts seem to underpin the main flavours. …”

Please enjoy my review of this unique rum from Colombia,

Chimo!
