Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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 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..
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 really good with touch of bourbon, cherry & cognac aging. Also compare to Single Vintages it has anise giving a buttery feeling, sophisticated & it is also more intense-aggressive with higher alcohol but same time less bold. In the background notice sherry, exotic fruits, touch bitter & little sweetness with long aftertaste (very close to 9). Overall extreamly overpriced.. i think Single Vintages 2002 and 2004 are close at half price with some different darker taste and tiny less smooth & intresting.
I'm giving it an 8 as I didn't have to pay for tasting this but given a bottle of this is triple the price of it's Single Vintage brother or something like Zacapa XO I'd want it to be blowing me away and it doesn't. Definitely good stuff but at that price point I'd be wanting to crave it for the rest of my life and thinking about it every time I drink another rum and I don't
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.
Ne vaut pas le prix annoncé.
La différence d'appréciation entre celui-ci et le D. Reserva Exclusiva ou le D. Single Vintage 200 ne vaut pas la différence de prix !
Jeg havde forventet mig meget mere af denne rom, men omvendt, så er jeg heller ikke en stor fan af Reserva Exclusiva. Hverken smags- eller duftmæssigt kan jeg komme højere op end 7, hvilket er skuffende.
