Tasty, but not quite great
Not the full flavor mouth of the other Diplomatico offerings but nice enough nose and very minimal initial alcohol bite. Got a bottle for $14.99 because at that price I just had to try the Diplomatico base offering. Probably not too many $15 Rums out there as good. Gave it the 7 because there are many well rated rums here with more initial alcohol bite than this has. Doesn't have an outstanding, lasting mouth after that but that in itself has value to me.
Diplomatico Anejo makes a decent rum-and-coke drink for you, but this rum is way too harsh for neat sipping experience. Go straight to the Reserva Exclusiva and be blown away with how good that rum really is.
I find this rum very good but you have to let the ice melt and the rum breath before it mellows out from the strong burn at first. Decent sipper but smooth when mixed with soda
It is not the best rum, but for it's price it is amazing. If you are looking for a cheap rum, try this one. You won't be disappointed.
Nice rum with a decent price from one of the great rum producers in Venezuela. A sweeter rum with the standard vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, some citrus and woody notes.
The youngest in the Diplomatico line, but don't take this as a negative, just a great way to get a good rum at a decent price.
This was a gift and one I would gladly return. In my search for the perfect sipper this one is at the bottom. I don't get much flower other than a fact caramel. I keep it in the freezer and use it to spice up different rum cream
