Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
You can really tell this is an aged rum by the different flavors that come out over the finish. The nose starts almost like a sweet wine, but a sip proves not as thick as expected. Taste starts a little too spicy for my preference, but turns sweet and nice about half way though the finish. I don't like it enough to buy a bottle, but I certainly wouldn't turn down a double once and a while just for the unique flavoring.
Fantastic rum. Almost as good as the 2000 edition. Worth every penny!
I like the diplomatico collection so I can't go without this one.
Nice balance, sweet and complex.
I keep this one for the special occasions.
Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva was the rum that started me on Rum. It's bit too sweet for me now so was looking for the next step up in balance and complexity which I hoped would be the Single Vintage. Given it was twice the price of the Exclusiva and well reviewed I was hoping for great stuff and it almost delivered, except it had a bit of a weird taste note running through it. Can't put my finger on it but definitely stops it being a firm favourite. Wouldn't buy again for the price
This is a great rum, medium sweet, a lot of taste, and stays in your mouth for a long time.
Enjoyed this one very much. It comes in a nice box and an even nicer bottle which looks great. Very soft, delicate and inviting nose. Taste is smooth and not as sweet as I had expected but very balanced. With 43% it has a slight kick going down when drinking straight up. All in all a great rum!
What quest should I now go on when I finally found the holy grail of rums. Or maybe there is better out there.... a new stupid quest. It's a Venezuelan style rum which I prefer for zipping like the qrm 23 but it's more elegant in taste than the harsh 23 yo which btw still haven't been moved down one floor for the new king.of mine. Price makes it a nine instead of a 10 to me. Bottle and packing are
Beautiful so is the taste.

superbe rhum, bien plus travaillé que les diplomatico habituel.
Cette cuvée 2001 commence a être vraiment agréable comparée au diplomatico classique qui lui est vraiment trop sucré. Ça reste quand même très rond et lassant.
Encore un grand rhum, délivré par la famille Ballesteros.
Moins caramélisé que la Reserva Exclusiva, il reste gourmand et généreux.
Harmonie, équilibre, plénitude, ce sont les mots qui me viennent quand je déguste ce rhum !
Unlike a lot of other destilleres, they did not just go sweeter on their single vintages. Holds 43%, so it has a small kick to it. Still has the sweet caramel and vanilla notes.
comme le 2000, il se boit vraiment avec plaisir!!!
moins sucré que le reserva exclusiva, mais tout aussi addictif.
quand on met un pied dans la famille Diplomatico, on y reste!
pas de 10/10 a cause du prix, il le mériterai quand même.
Denne rom er rigtig god, men dog vil jeg sige at prisen på over 1200 kr. er lige i overkanten for denne. Der findes bedre rom end denne, som er langt billigere.
i drank this rum straight up and i really enjoyed it. it has a very sweet body and you can clearly taste the sherry cask in his body. For me it is almost to sweet, it has complex taste and a longholding ending.
overall a very good sipping rum, but i can imagine that some won't like it because of his very sweet body
