Dictador Generations En Lalique
A first in the world of aged rum, Colombian rum distillery Dictador has released a limited-edition collection in collaboration with French luxury crystal maker Lalique. Named 'Generations' in recognition of the Parra family that produces Dictador - now in its third generation - 300 limited-edition crystal carafes contain a new blend created by Master Blender Hernan Parra alongside with his father Dario. Aged in both American Oak and Port casks, the distinctly indulgent spirit offers up aromas of ripe plum, spices and mahogany on the nose, while flavours of dark chocolate, burnt orange peel and leather come through on the palate, balanced with sweet ripe fruit. Collectors should snap up a bottle while they can - one was recently auctioned for an unprecedented £30,000 via Sotheby's, making it one of the most expensive bottles of rum ever sold.
