Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Diplomatico Anejo is a 4-year old golden rum from Venezuela. It is the youngest of the Diplomatico rum family and is medium-bodied.
Not a bad rum. Nose is full of caramel, too much for me. Fruity too though, with some mandarin and green banana. Mouth is fairly smooth, with flavours of vanilla and burnt caramel. Finish is dull.
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.
Good stuff for mixin with coke. Rich, sweet and vanilla taste even with the coke..
I really love the Diplomatico rums, but I didn't try this for a long time because I assumed it couldn't be that good at only $13.49 (Total Wines, 2016). I was mistaken.
It has the same base flavor as the Diplomatico Reserva and Reserva Exclusiva. Not quite as good as those, but similar nonetheless. Smells and tastes of toffee, vanilla, oak, and molasses. Surprisingly smooth for a four year old rum. This is definitely the rum to buy if you're on a budget and you want a sipping (as opposed to mixing) rum. Two thumbs up!!!
Certainly not my favourite rum. Buts it's still rum so I drink to that.
This light golden Rum has a hint of sweet butterscotch to both it's smell and taste. Mixes well with coke - A little harsh at first sip but mellows in a few quick minutes.
Not a bad choice for exploring anejo rum. It has a subtle wood-earth taste that is more apparent when served neat and even more evident when served neat with a little water.
Na to ako strašne mám rád ich vlajkovú loď, tak toto ma naozaj sklamalo
Pour decouvrir le "monde " diplomatico ! Parfait en cocktail
This would work ok as a mixer and it's a decent price. It is absolutely nothing to write home about and is disappointing next to the Exclusiva Reserva. Ok, I know it's cheaper and not the same...but I'd much rather have a Havana Club Anejo to this.
Very good with lime and coke. Or for other food mix
If you’re looking for a very sweet rum at budget prices, look no further.
Bohata chut i vune. Mozna to trochu prehnali se sladkosti - neni zdaleka tal vyvazeny jako RE, ale rozhodne to neni spatny rum. Da se v pohode i samotny. Delsi sladky zaver s korenim.
Solid go-to for cocktails requiring amber/gold rum. Nothing special overall, but it does have those characteristic sweet toffee, chocolate and dried fruit notes like the other Diplos, so it stands tall against competitors in this category...
If you like sugar.
I tasted it in s flight so, that may mislead me but overall it was a VERY good one that can be taken without ice or coke. It is swell balanced, nice sweetness and full texture. I liked it!!
I know it is not a very complex and sophisticated rum but for this price is excellent choice to have in house. for a few euros more...you have a quality rum in house over some cheap commercial other choices. the rating given is considering the price. just for the taste i would give a 7.
I bought this on recommendation from a friend as a good, cheap sipper, though they admit that they were already drunk when they had tried it. It's decent enough, the nose is pleasant, but the flavor falls very flat when drinken neat. I still sip it occasionally, but it's really not something you break out on special occasions, which is acceptable for the price. Mixed into your beverage of choice, it holds up very well.
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.
Un ron muy basico para lo que Diplomatico nos podria ofrecer.
Mellow body. Tastes of light vanilla caramel and fruit.
....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.
