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.
Un nez doux devenant puissant à l'aération avec une dominante de fruits cuits, de tabac blond et de miel remarquablement fondus.
Il prend une incontestable vigueur aromatique en se développant en bouche. La palette aromatique d'une grande intensité est particulièrement diversifiée : fruits secs, miel d'acacia et fruits tropicaux. La longue note finale révèle des notes de chocolat noir et d'orange.
A very good after dinner sipping rum, easy and very soft. At first sip it was a little too sweet and soft but now I really enjoy it in the winter, not suited for mixing. The aftertaste was much better than expected and I have now gone through 2 bottles. Not exactly Zacapa XO but neither is the price. A very good value for the money.
Really deep taste of vanilla, chocolate, honey....a clear finish. Very smooth....
You will get premium quality for middle range price.
Love this one, even though it's a bit too much on the sweet side. There is caramel, some spicyness, chocolate and butter scotch involved,both in taste and smell. Mos def an everyday sipper.
Pleasant amber colour.
Nose: vanilla, apricot, dry orange peel, chocolate and a hint of coffee
Taste: sweet, fruity, vanilla and chocolate.
It was like a dessert, leaving your mouth full of flavor. I like it a lot.
By far the best go to supping rum I have. Such a great smooth taste, at such a great price. Everyone I have had taste thing rum, was extremely surprised.
My second Diplomatico rum and so far I’m liking it. I’ve read where people said it’s too sweet, yet I find it just sweet enough. I’m picking up dried fruits like raisins and a cinnamon and spice. It has a nice light sweet aroma which reminds me of bread pudding. It does have hints of vanilla but they aren’t overwhelming and it’s a very nice sipper.
First let me say by all means try this. It is easy to drink. Very smooth and has a good finish. I can see why some reviewers have declared this to be a liquor, not rum. I like sweet rum. This one is very sweet. For those that covet Foursquare and other rum that has some real bite to them this is pure cane syrup. I like Foursquare also. I get it. But I this is just very sweet rum, not a real liquor. Besides the candy there is some pepper hiding back there. Some raisins and oak too along with subtle mint notes. Having said that it doesn't seem very complex. But it has nice balance and is easy to sip. If you are a fan of sweet rum you will really like this. I would prefer more "bite" and perhaps some more depth but I definitely enjoyed this.
Ok, I get that the rum veterans say this is a rum liquor. But damnit, I just like it. So to hell with the rum snobbery, I really enjoy this. I like the El Dorado 12 better over ice, but this rookie actually enjoys this one better neat. There isn’t a lot of burn, it’s got interesting flavors that come out across the glass. For a solid supper for a beginner, this is a great one to go for. I’m not one for cheap shit, but I can’t justify $200 a bottle when my palate is just forming. But this one will be a favorite for a while (until the snobbery takes my soul too).

"The palate evokes chocolate sauce and the sweet toffee, fudge and tropical fruit flavours from the nose"
"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"
