Tasty, but not quite great
Color:Very nice golden color
Nose:Very strong alcohol odeur, bit of vanilla
Tail: Strong alcohol, long lasting, wood
Bottle: Dimplomatico standard, but not as great as Reserva.
Unfortunately for me this is a not-anymore rum... :( I can feel there much of alcohol taste and not much of anything else...Maybe to use in mixed drinks.
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.
....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.
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.
