Un añejo diferente
Best white rum I have ever tasted. So smooth and neat, great for daiquiris, great with rum and coke. This rum is so smooth I've even tried a few cocktails with it in place of vodka. For 24$ it is my go to white rum, and a great choice for any occasion, full marks.
Wow! For a light rum this one is the best I had in my life super smooth very Aromatic and smooth very clean finish.
That rum is very good and we like with a drop of lime this is very good
I am so surprised how great this rum is. Smooth, slightly spicy, light molasses finish. Really enjoyable to sip all day at a BBQ with a few ice cubes. I tried it also with a tough of coke, and not a great mix - prefer on the rocks. I could see it being fantastic in a mojito
De beste witte rum die ik ken. Smaken vanille caramel vanille. Lekker zacht een om puur te drinken
As I got deeper into my rum journey, I learned that the whites can be as flavorful as the aged/dark, but in a different way.
Of all the Whites I have (about 20), this is by far the best.
Don't confuse it with the Diplomatico Planas white, a lower grade.
Now this is some good stuff. It's a white rum straight which it is what it is, little too much of a bite but with a touch and I mean a touch of coke this really becomes a one to many by accident type of drink. It's almost like long island iced tea when in coke with a rum after taste, in fact it's so good me typing this made me go get another one. It has both a dry initial taste and then follows up with a sweet after taste, that's amazing how they did it. No bold body to this one, it aims for a VERY crisp taste. Think like Sprite kind of taste and body and to me that makes it bold in it's own sense. This one gonna be a staple. I would rate 10/10 if it was better neat.
Got this one named Botucal instead. It's the same rum, have been told its doing to some German restrictions that its named Botucal instead of Diplomatico.
Premium mixer for premium drinks, but enjoyable as a sipper, especially with ice and twist of lemon.
This rum is smooth I will give it that, with a rather subdued nose. This rum lacks in flavor, it is not strong or incredibly deep in flavor at all and remains quite light given its age. I was expecting a bit more from this one. If you want a rather tasteless, scentless, rum with a bit a alcohol taste then this is perfect for you. You can drink a whole bunch of this rather easily without even feeling like you have drank anything, I drank 3 quarters of a bottle in a sitting trying to find the flavor. If you like a full flavored rum then this is not the first, second, third, or fourth, to grab. There are many other whites I would recommend far before this one, but still highly drinkable by almost anyone I would imagine.
Ce rhum blanc a été blanchi sur charbon après au moins 2 ans de vieillissement en fût. Ca lui donne un parfum très agréable et en fait une excellente base pour les cocktails.
ca incepator, aveam dubii in privinta lui... ei bine, nu m-a dezamagit, dar totusi este inferior celorlalte 2 din aceeasi familie pe care le-am incercat.
This is one of my favorite white rums. It mixes clean with just about anything that I have tried.
Simply the best white rum I have tried. It could almost be a good sipper! Not tried it in cocktails yet
Like this one a lot, Nice smooth white rum. This is one you have to try if you like white rums. Price is a bit high for a white rum, paid a little under €30,- for a 0,7L bottle.
I only use rum in mixes with coke. Very smooth, hints of aromatics, but also a strange taste that i can't describe. Personally I miss some freshness in this rum.
Diplomatico does not disappoint with this white rum. Excellent choice.
In the interest of full disclosure, I'm not partial to white/silver rums. I find most of them only suitable as mixers.
This is an exception.
Diplomatico, one of my favorite brands, has a winner here. The aroma is crisp and clean with a little alcohol pungency. The flavor here is a winner...a white rum worthy of sipping status...and I haven't taken such a stance with any white/silver rum prior to this one. This is a well-aged rum although how long is not known. I couldn't even guess. But unlike most white/silver rums I've tried, this one is rather smooth with no harsh burn. The flavor is rather simple. Sugar cane sweetness balanced well with an oak undertone. This is a buttery rum with subtle vanilla and caramel undertone. If you come across a bottle of this, you would not be amiss to buy it. I am confident you would not be disappointed. I could see this being used as a mixer but I would encourage you to try it on the rocks or neat.
This is a very interesting white rum ,with some of the complex flavours of amber like rums. It tingles the tongue at first but is smooth with a pleasant finish. At $45can it is an average price but,it is now unavailable in Ontario and Manitoba.
Pleasant smell of lightly fragrant pineapple (poured into a snifter). Mild and smooth flavor of banana cream, vanilla, toffee, and caramel. The mouthfeel has a wonderful warm velvet quality. I'd pour it into a snifter and drink it neat, or mix it with a good cola. Haven't tried it in a daiquiri, but I'd downplay the lime and sugar if I did. Tasty rum, good for when you want something delicate to sip on.
I only drink this rum straight and am pleased with it. It has a creamy taste and mouth feel and upon swallowing you can taste sugar cane. There is a little burn, but nothing unmanageable. Overall a smooth clear rum that can be drunk neat or in a cocktail.
Deze super premium rum uit Venezuela is blend van rums met een leeftijd van maximaal 6 jaren oud. Door de distillatie in koperen Potstills én een zuiving door middel van houtskool maakt deze rum uniek, zacht en vooral rijk van smaak. Deze rum heeft al diverse prijzen gewonnen en behoort tot de betere blanke rum.
Eind de jaren 80’ was Don Juancho Nieto Melendez en zijn brandende passie voor het verkennen van de bronnen en processen zorgde eruit uiteindelijk voor zijn eigen verantwoordelijkheid voor de vele verleidelijke smaken van de traditionele dranken waaronder de rum.
Hij was vooral geïnteresseerd in ambachtelijke productiemethoden die ondanks relatief constant gehouden, waren kunnen opleveren uiteenlopende duidelijk verschillende resultaten .
Hij was gefascineerd door de subtiele complexiteit van de vele omgevingsfactoren die het rum -proces beïnvloeden , zoals het weer en de vochtigheid van de tropen. Een vakman in hart en nieren , Don Juancho was onvermoeibaar en zocht naar manieren om zijn eigen product te verfijnen door bemonstering van een uitputtende reeks van exotische likeuren en rum . In feite zijn zijn indrukwekkende verzameling drank heel beroemd geworden.
Don Juancho bestudeerde aandachtig de productie- methoden die in Jamaica , die op dat tijdstip de wereldstandaard was voor de vervaardiging en de waardering van rum.
