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.
Recommendable to most
I knew this was a good rum, but I didn't expect how good it is. I drank it in direct comparison to Zacapa 23 and Dictador 20 and it clearly won for me. The Diplomático has a full profile with notes of dried dates and vanilla, while being super smooth. In comparison, the Zacapa 23 has similarly nice vanilla notes, but feels watery. The Dictador 20 has a very full profile too, closer to a whiskey, but lacks the wow factor of the dried dates you will find in the Diplomático.
This was the first rum i tasted and the reason i felt in love with rum ever since!!! It is not the best rum exist but it is best choice to start drinking rum!!!
This is one to have. Sweet smoky vanilla caramel goodness on the nose. Wow, spicy vanilla caramel heat your mouth and turns into nice fruits with very complement warmth in the chest. I like it cold, room temperature, with steel and ice cubes and coke on the side, always nice.
There is no statement of 12yo aging on the product, so I do believe it is not quite so old, is more like a blended rum. This is also my feeling when comparing with other old rums.
So @RumRating please remove the exact age from description.
It is a light sweet rum pleasant taste and smooth. Worth trying.
I would have given an 8 but i've already rated Ron de Jeremy XO 15yo as an 8 and I like that one more.
With a 7.9 at the time of my writing, this is perhaps the most misleadingly scored rum on the website. Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is an unremarkable, overly sweetened rum with few distinguishing characteristics. It's like having a caramel, butterscotch, rum flavored liqueur.
A solid rum for enjoying in its own. For the price point there are a select few I’d recommend over this one, but it still stands above a lot of others for the price
"The nose is dominated by notes of caramel, toffee and crème. On the back end of the aromas, I can detect a hint of smoke and pineapple"

"The palate evokes chocolate sauce and the sweet toffee, fudge and tropical fruit flavours from the nose"
Smells sweet. It is fruity, oranges, grapes and raisins with scents of chocolate and a sweet almost syrupy.
"The tasting notes on the site are very accurate vanilla, fudge/toffee sauce are noticeable as are notes of vanilla and a finish which is slightly bitter like cocoa which leaves a hit of oakiness on the taste buds. The finish is pretty short. ."
