Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva rum is distilled from molassis in copper pot stills and then aged in small oak casks for on average 12 years before being bottled.
Produced in Venezuela, which has a rich rum history dating to 1896, the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva distillery is located on the northern slopes of the Andes mountains.
Very good quality -price ratio! Love it! Recommended!
Very smooth rum, has a more berry/fruity flavor if you prefer that taste. Easy to drink neat or on ice.
This is a nice rum. Sweet tho...so if you like your rum on the sweeter side...this is recommended for you.
I like it, but I do prefer other ones. This is bit too commercial and well known for me, I like rarities.
This isn’t a liqueur that tastes like pancake syrup... that’s Cruzan Black Strap. Viscous with bold notes but smooth very mellow aftertaste. It’s no 10, but very good. Sometimes a rubbery note
Nice smooth rum definitely worth to buy another bottle
Not much to add to what others have said. I love this stuff, very little alcohol burn, way too easy to drink though hahaha. There are small hints of an almost Jagermeister taste lurking in the background, but in a good way, also sherry and vanilla. A truly wonderful tasting Rum.
This is my No. 1 Rum and I have tried many others!
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva is a fantastic rum. Honey, caramel and vanilla in the nose. The taste overall is quite sweet, but I like it. You taste caramel with some spices, together with some smooth alcohol. The taste stays long in your mouth. It tastes like South America in a bottle, sweet and smooth.
If I could have given this an 8.5, I would have. Diplomatico is my favorite rum on the average (I'm probably on some NSA watch list now). The 2004 single vintage is nuts. This is half the price but pretty good. Sweet, but not overly so. I don't feel the oak and other subtle additions i get in the 2004, but still nice for the price.
Rum or liqueur - does'nt matter. It was one of my first rum/liquers and I am still returning to this one.
I've tried this, when my rum life had just begun. I was shoked, what a tasty !
And I went deeper into the rum world.
Very rich, creamy, sweet taste, and have also vanilla and anise like spice aroma.
It is particulary good to enjoy after dinner.
Aroma of warming alcohol and vanilla. Sweet on the nose. Vanilla forward, sweet but not cloying upfront. This is a medium bodied rum. The finish is a bit sweet but warmth and a slight bitterness lingers. Not as complex as I expected based on all the reviews. Easy sipping and good but a little simplistic to my palate. If you don't like sweet rums then I'd avoid but if you do then go for it! I'd give it a 7.5 but I rounded to 8. Definitely a crowd pleaser.
Since my first was only about 7 bottles ago, I can only say this - it will not be be only time I get this one. Really reminded me of bananas and other great flavors that really add to the richness.
This one is definitely a neat rum, I'd never mix it down. At best I'd drop a single ice cube just to chill it a bit, and I did a few times. Still prefer it best when by itself though.
This is classic among my friends, however I personally prefer other rums. I tried to drink enough to really like it, I almost got there, but not really. I guess I miss some stronger nice smell.
Top chuť, top vůně, velmi příznivá cena, nesmí doma v baru chybět
I usually drink rum and coke with lime, but this is drinkable straight even for the most alcohol-averse taste buds. The aroma and finish leave a smooth impression. It also pairs fine with coke, but the mixer robs its of a lot of flavor. I enjoyed it most sipping it with an ice cube.
Recently tested Havana Club Iconicos and Diplomatico was a far better product
ako naznacuje drviva vacsina hodnoteni pred mnou a tiez ich mnozstvo, je to najpreflaknutejsi rum na nasom trhu (ked nepocitam zlievky typu kapitan morgan, bacardi a havana) a mozno aj na celom svete. napriek tomu je skutocne velmi dobre pitny, jemny, sladky, vhodny aj pre zeny bez kazenia miesanim s kokakolou a bez potreby zapijania. velmi vhodny aj ako darcek, urcite nikoho neurazi a pochutna si na nom nielen laik, ale myslim si, ze aj 99 zo 100 znalcov rumu. z toho co som doteraz ochutnal mi hodnotenie vychadza na 10. avsak verim, ze medzi premiovymi rumami za stovky eur, ktore som zatial neochutnal, raz objavim aj nieco lepsie. preto hodnotim diplomatico na 9.
This was a very smooth rum that was very nice when chilled
Un rum tra i più appetibili sul mercato, ad un prezzo più che conveniente.
discreta aggiunta di zucchero, colore scuro e profumi inebrianti. Buon corpo e liquorosità
Profumo: Amarena, melassa, poi poco toffe e caramello e un finale liquoroso e corposo.
Sapore: Si sente molto il sapore di amarena, per poi passare ai più complessi sentori di vaniglia, caramello e toffee. Un finale di caffé e cioccolato appena pronunciati dove l'Amarena continua a farla da padrone.
Abbastanza liquoroso e molto avvolgente nel sapore e nei profumi. Moderata la persistenza alcolica e poca acidità.
Prezzo/qualità: a 25-29€ su Amazon è un best buy per chi cerca un rum soddisfacente, da bere ogni volta che s ene ha voglia, senz aparsimonia.
Da solo, in compagnia, ma purché in "sipping" a mai mixato.
Un rum di ottimo livello ad un prezzo incredibile per le sue qualità, un top da tenere in cantinetta senza badare alle quantità, perché vola via in un attimo.
Fortunatamente entrato ormai da tempe nelle disponibilità Amazon ad un prezzo REGALO.
Sweet vanilla and baking spice. Sipping rum, almost a cocktail in itself. Pure caramel/spice/vanilla without any burn or funk.
This "rum" is not what it claims to be. Lot of added sugar, which is NOWHERE mentioned, young rums mixed with a bit of older ones and covered with sugar to confuse customer. I would normally rate it 6 in its price category but since customers are being lied to, I cant really recomend buying this to anyone. Do not support false marketing practices. But if we neglect the lies for a while and rate the rum itself, then we find out its not really that good as it is rated on this site.
Smell: the smell is pretty sweet, with some vanilla and sugarcane
Taste: Taste is not as full and complex as it could be expected. Immatured rums are heavily covered with sugar, Its not as sweet as Zacapa for example but there sure is a lot of added sugar and it is supposed to hide the complexity that this rum is missing. There is also vanilla in taste and its pretty smooth. But for the money it costs, you can get much better rums. From people who doesnt lie to you.
