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.
Well that's a terrific Rum ! A great choice to sip "straight from the bottle" ;)
On it's own it would deserve may be an 8/10, but it's very fair price makes it win the extra point to 9/10.
Sweet, subtile, balanced, a great choice for an everyday Rum !
Golden colour in the glass. Long legs. Nose is full of vanilla, caramel and a bit of oak.
It taste even more rounded sweet caramel, not very smokey. No sharp alcohol sting.
In the very end I detect a little bit of molasses.
Very fine sipper rum indeed.
Lots of sweetness but very jammy. Everyone I served it liked it a lot
Best Rum. I just tasted it. real smooth and gentle. No much to say
Un magnifique venezuelien. Une évolution de goût de vanille, chocolat très agréable !
A complex blend of Copper pot still rums aged for 12 long years, has a characterful nose, showing fruit cake, rum'n'raisin ice cream, cocoa, dried ginger, cinnamon and clove. Develops baked bananas with fudge sauce and chewy toffee notes alongside vanilla oak and a deeper note of syrupy gingerbread, with hints of orange zest. The palate evokes chocolate sauce and the sweet toffee, fudge and tropical fruit flavours from the nose. Flakes of Terry's Dark Chocolate Orange sprinkled over melted vanilla ice cream. Deep, vivid and extremely seductive flavours.
Mon premier rhum vieux (un cadeau), depuis même si j'en découvre d'autre, celui ci à toujours ce don de me transporter loin de tout !
Je recommande grandement !
Lots of caramel and vanilla. Round and easy to like. Way better than its little brother
Sweet, smooth, aromatic and tasteful, a very good rum for drinking straight up or on the rocks. Sometime when you feel blue, this rum will be a good companion
I really enjoy this rum. It has a very smooth taste at the beginning, nice body and no burn on the finish. One of my top three.
Pour amener au rhum. Très doux presque trop. Mais suave.
A very good rum for a good price, it is one of them you can just keep drinking.
Chocolate and caramel sweet rum. Very smooth and buttery feeling in mouth. Some woody notes. Dark and thick body full of rich aroma. Great rum.
This is an amazing rum, but it is very sweet. It's still amazing but you just don't want too much of it due to the sweetness
Voici un rhum, à base de mélasse, très doux :)
Premières impressions, on ressent les arômes de caramel et un nez "pâtissier". En bouche, il est suave mais complexe et on ressent le caramel pour finir sur une belle longueur.
C'est donc un excellent rhum à déguster, une référence pour les amateurs de mélasse. Je le conseille vivement..
Note : 65/100
A fantastic rum for beginners. The price for this premium rum is very convenient if you have obtained considering that awards of this rum.
+ Delicious, just so sweet, gentle taste and noble. One of my favorite at this price category. Really recommended for everyone. Nice taste and good choice for beginner and also for experts.
- ordinary bottle, all others is perfect
Ottimo rum equilibrato, dolce e molto fruttato. Consigliatssimo bevuto da solo.
Slightly spicy at first. Then Vanilla aromas and caramel. Good lenghts.I like to drink it 5 minutes after I served it
I would recommend at the end of a meal. Can be too sweet for an appetizer and would feel slightly unbalanced because if the sweetness and aromas.
This is what sipping rum is all about. Yes I could liken it to a melange of botanicals but it is just a wonderful rum to enjoy on its own possibly, the only suggestion would be which glass to enjoy it in, my preference would be the Glencairn.
For the money it is the smoothest rum without being cloyingly sickly.
I had heard a lot of good things, so I bought it on a whim. I'm really glad I did! Shot straight to the top of my favorites list.
Har fundet ud af at det er en og samme flaske, hvorfor den har den det ene navn det ene sted og visa versa, er mig en gåde.
Fik købt denne på tilbud hos Dansk-Vinlager.dk, som generelt er noget billigere end alle andre :)
Glæder mig i den grad til at få smagt på den, og kommer naturligvis med min fulde beskrivelse osv :)
The Diplomatico RE is THE best choice for me for any starters. It has is complete space in any collection.
the nose is reflecting exactly what the taste will be sweet,caramel,vanilla,fuits...
This is my all time favorite
This was one of my first rum.
Nice sweet sipping rum, well priced.
