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.
One of my all time favourites. Perfect one a hot summer day in the Caribbean
This is a good beginners rum.
Nose: Bananna and spirit. Spirit whays off after a while.
Taste is sweet and round. But not that complex. Good strong taste and for 300dkkr is it a good way to find out if you're into rum or not. Ofcause not all rum tastes the same, but rum dosen't taste like e.g. whiskey or burbon.
One of my first sipping rums. Very good rum to introduce to a new rumdrinker. It's quite agreeable and smooth overall. A great go to rum.
C'est ce rhum que je fais goûter toujours en premier. A partir de là , on peut déterminer le gout de chacun. C'est "la" référence.
Var et af mine første køb, og til prisen en fremragende rom. Go til nybegynderen og kan stadig overraske en garvet rom nyder. Let og luftig, med lidt brun farin noter, før der kommer en blød afslutning med et lille spark fra alkoholen.
Beautiful green, mat finish bottle with lots of small details on the, stamp/ dollar bill - like label.
Pop the cork and it reveals sweet prunes, port wine, caramel, dark chocolate, orange.
In the glass - Very dark amber color and beautiful legs.
Nose - Honey, burned caramel, candis, a hint of orange.
Taste - Smooth on entry, fruity, prunes, burned caramel, vanilla, woody/oak and dark chocolate finish.
Lovely smooth rum. Sweet, but not overly sweet. My expectations were high, and I must admit, this rum did not disappoint. Beautiful nose and taste in a lovely bottle leaves me reaching for it time and time again.
My standard rum. There's always some of this in the hiuse.
This Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is one of the most famous brands of South American Rums with a lot of Awards. If you want to start to try some very good aged rums, you must try this one first. For someone the taste may be very sweet, but for most beginners of rum drinkers is this sweetness OK and welcome.
A great rum for people who are starting out. Very easy on the wallet, and the pallet. Classic sweet Hispanic flavours.
læker sød rom med masser af nuancer. God begynder rom, og en rom man med glæde vender tilbage til.
The rums I drink the most often are stored on my bar's countertop. The premiums and ones I paid a higher price for are stored down below. This is a very good rum and the Venezuelan taste is somewhat different than the rest. I know I prefer most Barbados rums over most Jamaican rums, but I can't really decipher all of the others. I applaud and appreciate those reviewers that can sniff the flavors and describe the legs. I rely on you for recommendations. I have only tried a few based on a liquor store salesperson.
I'm a beginner with sipping rum's and this is the best I had so far.
It's nice and smooth and and a very nice start to get in to sipping rum's for me.
I wil keep on buying other sipping rum's, but I think I will buy this one more in the future.
A avoir dans toute bonne cave.
il est le meilleur rapport qualité prix pour s'offrir un vrai bon rhum de dégustation!!!
du parfum, des aromes, de la longueur... le top.
ma seule limite serait peut être le coté trop sucré, mais c'est un détail.
je met 10 car il dépasse beaucoup de rhum bien plus cher et apporte vraiment du plaisir. A consommer sans modération (mais a la maison!!!)
This is the Rum choice I would put forward on the table for friends because I would be sure that everybody would like it. I recommend it warmly for your liquor Cabinet! Great taste and smell!
Le rhum par lequel j'ai débuté... Un goût de caramel très présent. Pas de complexité mais c'est un classique.
définitivement le meilleur rapport qualité prix
À 56$ cette bouteille rivalise avec d'autre
Qui coûte $100 et plus . Ce rum est assez sucré alors si vous cherchez quelque chose de pas sucré un Appleton 12 ans est bien coté mais tellement à l'opposé du Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva point de vue du sucre ! Une bouteille à toujours avoir dans son bar!
I really like this rum because of it's semplicity. It's just sweet like a candy and it's a rum that I'd like to drink every day
Very easy to drink. One dimensional though. Heavy on chocolate. Good drink for when you are trying to get someone into drinking rum.
A family that does not drink, brought this to a dinner party at my house based on some sage advice from a wine merchant. I'm still seeking this sage to thank him.
Dark Rum with balanced sweetness, that was enjoyed by everyone that tried it at our party.
Un rhum indispensable à sa collection ! Je mets un 8 uniquement parce qu'il y a certainement des rhum que je ne pourrai pas me payer qui méritent encore mieux.
An indispensable rum to his collection! I put a 8 only because there is certainly rum that I could not pay me that still deserve better.
My very first sipping rum ! fantastic taste of caramel and chocolate . Very smooth almost liquid desert , its sweet but not sickly and does not get so even on glass 3 !! Tried it also with a decent cola and also a ginger beer , a waste of time as it kills the taste on both of them. So a sipper it is but with a ice cube or two in my opinion.
excellent rapport qualité/prix
Simple d'accès: doux, note de vanille et caramel bien présente
... for likers of sweet rums.
Sweet, well balanced, a bit smoother than very similar Zacapa 23y (and cheaper). For somebody can be too sweet, almost like some rum liqueurs, but I (and most of people) like it. Definitely best buy from this level of premium rums.
edit: Some promo fairytales say that Botucal is origin recipe (and of course older = better). By my testing is only different sales brand, tastes are same.
Un rhum exceptionnel, sans doute le meilleur rapport qualité-prix du marché !! Un nez relativement discret, caramélisé, mais en bouche c'est un pur nectar, vanille, miel, avec une touche boisée indescriptible; et une bonne longueur. Un incontournable, impossible d'envisager une cave à rhum sans sa présence!
