So, I am a Diplomatico fan, in general. My colleagues (central american, mostly) are fans of various others, and I have had Flor de Cana 18, Havana club maestros, etc. And prior to this one one my favorite rum that I had actually tried was Diplomatico 2004 single vintage. I had had Zacapa XO and some other "100 dollar plus bottles" but that was the best. I live in Chile and with the pandemic, the importation I was forced (FORCED) to buy the 250 dollar a bottle ambassador. And wow was it worth it. This doesn't taste like alcohol, it tastes like heaven. the bourbon barrel aging is obvious with SLIGHT sour notes that just offset the deep caramel and vanilla. There is some raw oak as well, and a bit of spice on the nose. It somehow manages to be everything and not too much at the same time. dark and deep. If you have a chance for a glass, don't pass it up, even for just a taste at 20 bucks or so. Lovely.

First sip is very mild, and then it begin to stick in the back of the tongue followed by a silky smooth feeling in the mouth. Fine nose and taste. Good Rum from Diplomatico!

The Ambassador is very well rounded with a nice balance between the sweet fruityness that characterizes the Reserva Exclusiva and other Diplomaticos, but not as "in your face", mixed with some nice oak and a very full body that lingers for a long time. It's both super smooth and complex. This is simply a superb rum, but it's scarily expensive...

This rum is powerful. Strong, full aroma yet smooth on the palate. It’s the most expensive rum I’ve tried so far but it is excellent. It’s far superior to the other rums in my profile.

Lightly sweet, with notes of oak, vanilla and smoke.


Edit: 9/14/20

Still an excellent rum, but as usual, more experience has shown me that while it’s expensive, that doesn’t mean it’s a 10. I’m downgrading to an 8.5 because while very good, it lacks some depth that I believe is due to additives that may cover some inherent flaws.

Would I buy it again? Yes, but not until I’ve added Appleton Estate Joy and 30 year to my collection.

I have an empty bottle and box in my garage. It was tasty and didn’t last very long. It fell right into my wheelhouse of oak and caramel flavours. It wasn’t harsh just expensive.

Aroma: Spicy, vanilla, caramel, dried fruit, some peat

Body: Spicy, vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee, hints of peat and fruitiness

Finish: Spicy, coffee, hints of dried fruit and dark chocolate

Conclusion: One of the best rums I've ever tried. It's so complex, with alot of flavors you won't find in most of the rums out there. Let it rest in the glass for atleast 20 minutes before taking a sip. It's mind-blowing.
