Diplomatico Ambassador Selection is a limited edition rum crafted from 100% still pot rums and aged for a minimum of 12 years. Like its counterparts, the rum originates from Venezuela and is aged in ex-bourbon casks. The rum has a high strength and does not contain any sweeteners, caramel or other additives which means it does not require chill filtration.
Now this is some good stuff
the peak of all the rums I tasted it's for special occasion paid over $280 so you can expect something special and it is, if you can afford it try it.
Was not expecting the quality of this rum. The reserva exclusiva is pure sugar water and the single vintage line is decent, but this is something else. That said, the diplomatico lineage is still obvious. The nose is thick, with full, soft, oaky notes, a bit of chocolate, flambed banana and heavy caramel. The first sip surprises a bit. It's fat and oily with a deep, yet soft and subtle caramel and chocolate character. Notes of prunes and banana also peaks out. The deep caramel note is countered by full, complex, oaky notes, but it's not particularly dry. The strength of the rum builds up the notes and makes the taste full and interessting, but still pleasant at the same time.There's a very long, big bodied aftertaste, and you feel a nice heat building up in your mouth and chest. If you feel like parting with a substantial pile of cash and like sweet rum, consider throwing it at this. it's good but considering the pricetag and slightly masking sweetness, this rum can't compete in this price bracket.
Fancy and good, easy to drink, but at this pricetag I can find better. Way better. In the diplo series I Would pick their s.v 2000 over this anytime and its half price.
The concept is really nice.. Great box, nice bottle, one of the meanest corks i have ever seen..
The color is awesome.. The scent is descent.. A little bit too much coffe and even alcohol.. The taste is too much of alcohol. But it´s a dark and complex taste.. The finish is whats kills it for me.. A clear taste of pure alcohol which fades out and leaves me what should have been there.. A dark complex finish.. Maybe i will try it with ice in the summer.. But for those money i shouldn´t have to manipulate it at all..
The thing that suprise me the most, is that the rum is on 47% without being too strong. Of course it gives it a strong power, but it's wrapped in soft sweetness, and could not be better balanced. PLEASE TRY IT!!!!!
Nose : I find dark chocolate, sherry, power and small hints of vanilla.
Taste : I find dark chocolate, roasted nuts, sherry, orange, molasses and a great power. The rum is so thick and delicious, that it lubricates your mouth while you drink it, delicious!!
The aftertaste is deep, strong and with the perfect little sweetness, that ends up with molasses.
Du you self a favour and try this rum if you like sweet rums, but with a strong power that kicks you in the mouth on the same time!!
Given the price I expected something smoother. An ice cube definitely helps open it up and decrease its bite. Don't think I'd buy it again.
This is an awesome rum, really dark and rich in colour.
Nose: is just filled with chocolate and burnt nuts a little bit of orange,coconut and banana.
Taste: is so smooth and and almost like velvet with a strong power 47% but the power is very well balanced and notes i almost the same as in the nose, but with raisins.
Aftertaste: looong and sweet with a little bit of oak.
