Dictador unveils limited-edition 2 Masters Royal Tokaji release

Colombian rum producer Dictador has announced a new limited-edition release in its 2 Masters series - which it crossed continents to achieve.

Dictador 2 Masters Royal Tokaji is a rare edition of 40-year-old Colombian rum that has been matured in wine casks from the acclaimed Royal Tokaji Wine Company in Hungary.

It is the latest edition to the Dictador 2 Masters range, a project that aims to create unexpected flavours and finishes with the producer's rums to make an investment-worthy product.

In this collaboration, Dictador's master blender Hernan Parra worked with Royal Tokaji's master blender Zoltán Kovács to age a 1977 vintage Dictador rum for seven months in 12-year-old, 300-litre Zemplén oak barrels that were previously used to age the 2016 Royal Tokaji Aszú 6 puttonyos.

Hernan Parra said: "In the depths of the 13th century Royal Tokaji wine cellar, our rum has developed a new and extraordinary finish. Its palate is elegant and balanced, smooth and rich, with a good attack and a persistent finish." 

Only 475 decanters of the Dictador 2 Masters Royal Tokaji will be available worldwide through Goedhuis & Co Fine Wine Merchants for a recommended price of €750/£670.

To protect the authenticity of its products, Dictador has created a robust cryptographic seurity system in its labels; they contain 11 protective layers, gold paint with UV glowing protection, microtext and typographical numbering. The bottles are presented in armoured glass packaging that use fingerprint technology to unlock.
