Default New rums in Colombia

Ron Santa Fe has released a 12yr old rum in a beautiful bottle.
Ron Botero, named after the famous artist from Medellin, has released at least two different rums, one of them being 15yr old.

I would never buy rum lower than 40 %, why waste money on distilled water.

I was in Columbia last week, and found that most spirits there seem to be limited to 35% alcohol content.

I thought it might be a law, but Zacapa was on the shelf at 43%, so perhaps it's more a cultural preference?

Unless of course Diageo has just bowled through the regulations.

Did you try the Dictador XO , insolent and perpetual? I read that most most sugar cane by law in Columbia goes to bio fuel production. So production is limited to estates that grow their own cane directly for rum production. It could be a reason to stretch rum available for domestic use.
