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 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.

Diplomatico at its best. Super smooth full of vanilla and caramel notes, Would’ve rated 10 but too sweet.

Really nice rum, easy to drink but still with a lot of flavours. A lot of different flavours. I drank this rum several times and still like it

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.

Dark color, full taste. One of the best commonly available rums for a good price.

Really like it. Good aftertaste just good. Please just drink it as it is, no ice or sodas.

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
