Now this is some good stuff
Diplomatico special. Like improved Reserva. Excellent present, to cabinet, delicate but still sweet and very fruity taste.
A lovely rum, incredibly smooth to drink with a beautiful bottle.
It is expensive but I feel it is worth the price.
I've heard amazing things of the 2000 Vintage however, it is seeming impossible to get a hold of.
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
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.
The lost pirate
"It leads into a spicy mid palate containing quite a lot of complexity. Again the oak spice is there though it is slightly bitter, there are hints of raisin, all spice and an almost Christmas pudding like note, zesty orange and cinnamon."
