Absolutely amazing! Beautiful presentation, so very smooth and satisfying to the palate. By far the best I have tasted so far, so well balanced and very easy to drink. Definitely a mainstay in my collection.

Sugar: Estimated at 40 GPL. At the first sip I thought to myself this is it! You have found a perfect rum. I saved this review for my 150th review on Rum Ratings and I have to say that this is now all time favorite. Numero Uno!
Ambassador rum is so soft and sweet, and yet it's 47% ABV. Flavours of sherry, butterscotch, oak, vanilla, almonds, chocolate, fruits like banana with mango or apricots, all coming together in a wonderful explosion of taste. Smooth! Superb aromas in the glass and perfection on the tongue. For those who subscribe to the YOLO credo, go get this rum.

Enjoyed a back-to-back-to-back tasting between Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, Single Vintage 2002 and Ambassador. All truly world class rums. Ambassador wins the nicest bottle design and it comes in a very sturdy wood box. Ambassador has a spectacular notes to nose and palate including toffee, light oak and red fruits. Smooth sailing in the taste area.

Been waiting for this moment for some time. I am a fan of sweet rums, and Venezuela has a few of the best. I have the reserva and some of the single vintages among which the 2000 which is superb, but now that I got the Ambassador, I am in heaven. Strong but smooth, thick and sweet, but then again not too sweet, great to roll around on the tongue and incredibly full aftertaste. Absolute perfection, in a absolutely perfect presentation... which is what you have the right to expect at that price!

Tested together with single vintage and it is difference, more body and longer aftertaste with more complexity. High priced but worth the money, To enjoy at special occasions.

The best rum i ever tastet. Compared to the price Single Vintage is a better buy but this taste perfect! A fresher firsttouch and more pronounced aftertaste than Single Vintage

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.

What a wonderful rum. Dark Amber colour, and very smooth.

Nicely oaked and have hints of it in the nose. Does not have added sweetness. But I am surprised it does leave a trace of alcohol burn. Not much though as it is 94 proof or 47%

I had to buy a bottle for my evenings after long hours at work with kids. I thought about a nice rum to remind me the time I was living in the Caribbean. I was delighted with the box and the elegant bottle. The nose is quite strong at first and attacked me a bit certainly cause of the 47percents of alcohol. Itis spicy with a strong vanilla smell. At the first try you can feel a very nice creamy effect with notes of caramel, dry fruits like with a cake. Also some vanilla. Then I felt some nice coffee and dark chocolate notes. Finally if you stop drinking for a bit and leave the flavors developping in your mouth, you really have a nice and warm feeling. You definitely want to have some more. It is complex, sweet and strong at the same time. Nice piece of work for sure.
