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.
This (diplomatic Reserva Exclusive), Ron Zacapa Solera and now Rumson's Grand Reserve are my favorite sipping rums. Diplomatic is full bodied and perhaps a bit warmer then the other too, but great flavor and a fantastic sipper. I prefer Rumson's Grand Reserve, but Diplomatico is very good and I rotate the three.
prefered by beginners, sweet but tasty, with very nice color and smell. nothing special for more advanced rums lovers but high standard like zacapa 23y for better price:) btw master blender is very nice man, I met him on tour in CZ:)
I found something disturbing in aroma. Something what apparently doesn`t belong to composition.
However taste is sweet and fine. Maybe I had too high expectations.
I have gone through several bottles of this stuff and the first thing you will note is that it is very much like a rich cognac. Swirling around the mouth you get a very smooth, almost banana flavour, finished with caramel, faint treacle and tobacco with a rich brandy like after burn. Certainly one of the smoothest rums I have tried, but not quite the rum flavour of my preference. Wasted mixed, break it open for a special occasion.
My absolute favorite! Smooth. Sweet. Heavy notes of dark brown sugar, and vanilla. The finish is long and leaves and nice sweetness on your lips. Enjoy!
Tito Cordero has developed an unique piece of art, capable of bringing the consumer the best of the Venezuelan rum heritage. It has notes of honey, tabacco and wood making it one of a kind.
Si vous avez toujours eu du mal à boire un alcool fort pure et que vous voulez vous y mettre, voici votre homme. Douceur, légèrement vanillé (un peu artificiel malheureusement), et ce petit coté porto et balsamique qui lui confère une identité unique. En bref un rhum facile d'accès et qui ne peut pas déplaire sauf peut-être au plus puristes du "untouched" rum.
I bought this Rum yesterday. It smells so sweety and I feel combination of caramel and ''honey''. I like honey rum. The color is very beautiful. I recommend you this rum for night with book or listen to orchestra in a chair.
I picked this bottle up in Buffalo as i could not get it in Ontario and it has become an instant favourite.Great tasting rum here with a very smooth finish. On the nose, I detect coffee, dark chocolate, mild tobacco, spice and sweetness like dried fruit. It is easy sipping and provides a nice warming feeling. Great for desert or to unwind at the end of the day.
I pair this with Monte Cristo #2 or enjoy with a slice of fine chocolate for the non smokers. Great rum for the dollar and a top shelf sipper for me.
Las palabras sobran un ron para ser degustado preferiblemente solo o a las rocas uno de los rones mas premiados del mundo
Gorgeous color, but overly sweet and a little too cloying for me. Almost syrupy. Granted, I'm in more of a Straight Rye phase at the moment so that could have a lot to do with it. I may have to revise later after my palate has settled down.
i don't wax and wane lyrical anymore in my reviews of liquids anymore as it just seems it's too personal specific....
however, i do think this rum carries with it great liquid and a good choice for both beginners and experienced rum drinkers.
may be due to their distilling methods but it has great potential in flavor profile. can't tell if the liquid will get any better with further aging but a great tasting rum.
probably great value for beginners and moderates... but for those well versed, i wouldn't say any further as they would already have passed own judgments.
and it lived up to the hype. good buy. I usually put a few soapstones in to lower the temp a bit, but doesn't need any ice to take the edge off.

"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"
