Dictador 2 Masters LeClerc Briant 1979
A 39-YEAR-OLD DICTADOR RUM FROM A 1978 SINGLE VINTAGE CASK FINISHED IN SHERRY CASKS AND THEN SHIPPED TO LECLERC BRIANT IN CHAMPAGNE, WHERE THE RUM SPENT EIGHT MONTHS FURTHER IN LIGHTLY TOASTED TARANSAUD & SEGUIN-MOREAU CASK USED BY LECLERC BRIANT SINCE 2009. BOTTLED AT 44% ABV. ONLY 390 BOTTLES. Nose: Surprisingly rich, mellow buttered caramel overtones with greener new French oak nuances, toasted coconut, vanilla stalk and salted caramel with freshness and nuttiness. Palate: A rich, expansive complexity with maple bar over vanilla yoghurt, then honeyed berry character and grape juice. On the mid-palate, it changes character and begins its slow lingering route back to the origins of the rum with condensed sugar cane juice, evaporated milk and hints of honeysuckle flowers. Color: Deep golden bronze with lovely graduating layers of mahogany to the rim, showing excellent viscosity in the glass.
