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.
Parfait pour faire découvrir le rhum à quelqu'un ou pour s'y mettre en douceur, cette petite sucrerie est comparable à un caramel mou : "caramel" car au nez et en bouche c'est ce qui domine et "mou" car c'est très rond et ça manque cruellement de pêche !
A noter tout de même : c'est excellent avec un petit foie gras sur un toast, cela remplace aisément un vin blanc liquoreux.
A good rum with some initial bite when drinking straight up.
Realy good taste. You should try it. Don't suit everyone but I like it.
I'm a dark rum drinker for about a year, butt mostly bacardi and Havana or matusalem so a friend of my also a fine taster on this ratings app, and he recommended this rum and my tongue loved the tast of this rum. My fist real good rum!
Une bonne entrée en matière pour qui veut découvrir le(s) rhum(s)
First taste is a smooth smokey/oakey flavour, then once you swallow you get a hit of warmth and rich flavour. Lovely aged rum.
Carmel, smoke and a little on the sweet side. Great neat.
Un bon gout de caramel.... sur glace seulement.....
Very sweet and yet has a lot going with complexity. Sweet up front to the point you think that's all you're getting, but surprisingly you don't get to know it until about 5-10 seconds later. However, I feel it is not that outmatched by the cheaper Zaya.
Full of flavor, very tasty, very nice touch of wood, very good rum.
Nice aroma and nice balance. The taste of caramel and vanilla is very noticeable.
Diplomatico has a wonderful flavor - very smooth and a rum I would recommend
This is the first sipping rum I ever tasted. I enjoy it neat in a cognac glass or in single malt glass. I love the dark colour and the sweet caramel aroma.
I really liked it from the beginning, but didn't think it was that sweet until I tried the El Dorado 15, which is definitely more of an acquired taste. I guess that's why they call it
All in all an excellent "beginner" rum that I will definitely buy again as I'm already out of it!
Smell: fruity, sweet and with a touch of vanilia.
The taste is almost as caramel cream with vanilia.
Leaves you with pleasent warm aftertaste.
Roundess at its best. Excellent mix of vintage Diplomatico. Very sweet feeling that makes it too easy to drink...
Can I give this a 10+? Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is, simply put, just plain amazing. Rich and while very sweet (caramel and brown-sugar, some butter), it's not without some oak character to give it a slightly smoky bite, too, so it's a well-rounded rum - you can't go wrong with this. Straight-up or maybe on a little ice ( one cube only, maximum! ) but just way too good to waste on mix. Simply a must-have for any rum aficionado.
Min debutrom. Dejlig duft, fantastisk rund og sød smag. Hænger dejligt i munden. Konens favorit. Er genkøbt. Fantastisk til prisen.
For a cheap rum, this is pretty ok stuff. Not very distinct, but for a sipping rum it's fine.
For the price, this is my favorite rum to date. Good for sipping with its slightly smokey flavor.
Your review – you could include things like color, aroma, body, taste, finish, spice, smoothness… really anything you want! You can also share an optional picture of the drink (or better still - you enjoying it!) by attaching a photo below.
This is one of those rums that I find is so smooth that when I have my normal rum & Coke Zero I really don't notice the rum by taste. Instead it sneaks up on me and I feel it. This is one of the rums my wife likes to drink straight. [NOTE: I do realize that a large amount of sugar has been added to this rum. I still like it.]
After trying a glass of Centenario XX, which opened my eyes to the world of rum... I went on a personal quest to find the best rum (FOR ME!).
I am not a drinker, nor a connoisseur, I cannot tell you about notes, flavors, palates, etc... But I can tell you: This is the best rum that I've tried. Give it a shot!
απο την πρώτη γουλιά το λάτρεψα.είναι ένα γλυκό ρούμι με πλούσια αρώματα και πολύ καλή επίγευση!
Helt utroligt, at man kan få så god en rum, til så uhørt lav en pris, vi som rum-nyder kan kun klappe i vores (pirat)hænder og nyde denne fantastiske rum, tænk at man kan få hele t0 flasker af denne til samme pris som andre tilsvarende gode rum. Wuuuuhuuuu
Was actually waiting for a friend to pick this up at one of the danish/german bordershops (Here called Botucal) but couldn't resist myself and went to the swedish monopoly (again) and paid roughly 15€ extra for it. In one simple word...fantastic!
