Tasty, but not quite great
Not quite a sipper, but plenty of flavor for a mixer where you want a bold gold, like a strawberry daiquiri. Light on the nose with a wine-like fruitiness, full flavor that can only be described as "rum", with a medium finish that just lingers a minute.
I love the older Diplomaticos, but while this has some of the same characteristics, it doesn't come together with the same complexity. The elements or there, just don't tie together how I would want in a rum of this age.
It pours a straw gold, and despite a light nose, elements of vanilla and caramel dominate the taste. A quick burn mellows into a nice warm back end. This would mix well, or be good after shoveling the driveway.
If you are getting into complex rums this is a great starter and must have in the cabinet.
Considering i was able to get it under $15 it is as good as it can be.
Caramel is all around with nose, taste and finish...
I think it is typical for Venezuelan rums this is my 3rd Venezielan rum woth same character
Some other distinct flavors as well overall solid rum for the price.
After drinking the Reserva, which I feel is one of the best rums for the money, I was very disappointed in this one. At first sip I initially thought it was going to be alright but quickly found out otherwise. The taste is flat, boring and the finish is very short as was my relationship with this bottle. I suppose it's okay for mixing but I only consume my booze straight. Nothing terribly offensive about the Añejo but very little to recommend.
Diplomatico Anejo is a good, middle of the road rum with a firm standing on nose and warmth. If you're looking for a solid place to start your rum tastings, start here.
....but not a great one either. Light in color, you can tell it is young in age. Decent flavor on the nose of citrus, good up front sweet vanilla and,light oak, but it dies off and doesnt have a great finish.
Can be a neat pour or over the rocks, but would make a great cocktail.
This one isn't just slapped with the "Anejo" label. It actually holds up. The presence of oak puts that argument to rest. I liked the taste of tobacco leaf and molasses. If a very good Anjeo and worth trying.
