For classical Colombian flavours that are rich, deep and luxuriously delicious – you need simply to sip to fully understand the magic of the best.

This bottle is part of a limited series, so be one of the few lucky ones to discover this unique and incredibly rare rum.

Label description


The Best Of Dictador product line is represented by the best barrels selected from a batch of a particular year. The bottle contains the best rum blended from selected production batch in a moment of time

Cask Reference

The barrels used for Best Of are carefully selected by Master Parra. We use 3 types of the barrels: AO - American Oak, SC - Sherry Cask, PC - Port Cask

Number of Bottles in the Batch

We use only one selected barrel for bottling. As a result, we fill around 300 bottles with this great liquid work of art. The entire process takes place at our Destilería Colombiana


All labels are handwritten and signed by Master Blender, Hernan Parra

% of alchol

Differences in percentages of alcohol come from organoleptic tests. As the spirit is taken directly from the barrel, it must be diluted, then our master blender decides which blend tastes the best with what alcohol percentage level

Spirits character of 2017 Best OF edition


From the beautiful highlands we brought barrels with the unique signature of whisky. The idea was to bring many combinations to our exceptional rums – the fragrance and tastes of floral and peat, smoke and leaves, and minerals and peel. The result is an elegant aroma which has developed into a majestic blend. The evolution of our rums in these barrels confirms the versatile essence of our distilled method, extracting this malt finish in the mouth while still maintaining a pure caramel and oaky taste.


Our heart lies ultimately in sugar cane. It is the base of our culture and combined with the elements which surround it is our effort to embrace the rum. This blend offers deep, dark colours, a smooth and oaky aroma, and tough sugar cane honey with coffee flavours. This is outstanding rum which is best enjoyed slowly.


Paying homage to our Latin roots and fiery culture, a full dose of passion is served in every shot of our sugar cane-based spirit. Our essence is sweet and to maintain this after distillation we add to our old barrels a hint of panela – an explosion of reduced sugar cane juice with a large concentration of dark caramel colour and flavour. Latinos are open to life so let´s be open to passion in liquid form.
