Well, I expected more from this's so strong for me. You have to leave it much time in the glass. I lost my patience with it.

Nose: Fruity and thick nose with almond, hazelnut and cocoa. Toffee apples, fruits and hints of cooked banana, juicy sherry and mince pies, alongside deep notes of cinnamon and potpourri.

Palate: Rich and fruity with a buttery biscuit base, cinnamon, dried apricots, dates and Nutella. The predominant flavour, however, is of really good sweet pipe tobacco. Stunning.

Finish: Long and fruity with sweet, thick honey and allspice.

This bottle is just a beauty! The taste is sweet like almost all Diplomatico rums. I would rate it a 7,5 because there is one flavor in it that breaks my moment of enjoying! It's something personal and I can't find out what it is.

It’s good. And stays long on the tongue. Strong, aged, oaky. But for that price not worth it, or doesn’t live up to the hype. Disappointed.

Very classy and complex rum. This is not a rum with major stomp on it. It is smooth and silky, nice flavors from start to finish is truly enjoyable.

N- Sour plum, floral, coffee and cedar. Rich chocolate brownie with pastry cream comes with whiff of strength. Sweet herbs and buddha fruit juice. Coffee caramel, kopiko candy. All in all a gentle rum with relatively shallow depth considering this is a premium line. (84/18)

P- Raisin, raisin and more raisins. Then liquorice oak note for drying effect with spices. Get sugary at the tail. (84/18)

F- Medium, nutty, mellow, young banana and dried fruits. Tart. (83/18)

B/B- 75/15. It says Cask Strength, at 47%.... exactly the same strength as previous batch. however I am not sure on the CS definition for Rum by certain rum producers, it may be so.

I found this to be slightly better than the Single Vintage 2004, which is a top rum. The flavor is thick and well-balanced--brown sugar, wood, vanilla, dried fruits. Sweet, but overly so.

This isn’t your sweet diplomatico. It’s very alcohol forward, wood heavy. It’s not a bad rum but for the price you can find better
