i expected more of this Special expensive Rum. the single vintage is fuller of taste than this.

Got this one for my father. Needless to say, he liked it like none other.
Keep it for special occasion tho, the price point is a bit on the very high side.

All I can say about the flavor is that it won't dissapoint. It's in the top 10 for a reason.

This is one of the best rum I've had to date, and I've tried a lot of good ones. It has an amazing smell of rich butter toffee, caramel, and butterscotch, with a light sherry taste that isn't strong enough to detract from the rum. Taste is an amazing follow up to the nose. Strong at 43%abv, but so good the added strength is perfect. Would pair well with a fine cigar. Simply an amazing rum.

This is for sure an awesome rum. Really great complexity - not as sweet as the other Ambassador rums. But it does come at a hefty price, where you can find even better alternatives.

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.

Radeji bych si 1000 Kc priplatil a vybral jsi Zacapu Royal. Neni to spatny rum, ale za tu cenu nestoji. 7/10

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...
