When I came across a bottle of this rum several months ago there was no internal argument on whether or not I should purchase it. And it was the last bottle on the shelf.

Let's get to it, shall we?

Reading about the making of this rum is fascinating in of itself. Apparently the sugar cane crops in Venezuela that year were the best ever and made for some of the best even cane "honey" which they used in the distilling process. The rum was then aged in oak barrels for 12 years before finished in sherry casks.

The color is a nice rich mahogany. The aroma is outstanding. I seem to get hints of cinnamon in it. Swirling in the glass leaves a film of the rum that slowly...and I mean SLOWLY slides down the sides of the snifter.

The flavor is quite excellent. Admittedly this rum is sugared a bit the sweetness isn't overpowering. There seems to be a bit of butteriness to it with vanilla and butterscotch undertones. I also get a little flavor akin to raisins. There is a rather intense burn to it. It is listed at 43% ABV (86 proof) but that burn seems to be such experienced with higher proof rums. It's not rough at all, just a tad intense. When the burn slowly fades there is a nice drier finish highlighted by vanilla and cinnamon.

My opinions are based on drinking this straight and it is definitely an excellent sipping rum but I recommend using a single, small ice cube (emphasis on small) with the rum and allowing the cube to melt just a little bit. This will release even more flavors and mellows the burn a bit.

Albeit pricey at over $100 a bottle this is a rum that should be reserved for special occasions. And this is a bottle that gets high marks on the coolness factor. A thick-bottom heavy bottle with a natural cork and hefty metal topper. On the sad day your bottle of this rum becomes empty, save the bottle, take off the label and reuse it as a decanter.

Highly recommended!!!

subtil, finesse, une douceur de dégustation, un rhum à garder

This rum is simply the best I have sat down and profiled. The nose is remarkable and stringent, baking fruit, butter, and a bit of nutmeg. Taste is soft and subtle as is the finish. I would strongly recommend this rum!

This is really a great rum, Diplomatico never disapoint!! Classic rum that have the power and the sweetness on the same time, but well balanced.

Nose : I find Banana, a little caramel and vanilla, and hints of orange.

Taste : I find orange, vanilla, oak, molasses, and a good power.

The aftertaste is good, long, and with a strong power that balance well all the way to the end, followed with a sweet tale.

I have tried the whole diplomatico range and this is up there with the best! Rich molasses and is a big step on from the ER so much more complex

Lækker Rom.
Knap så sød som Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, men ellers nogenlunde samme smag.
