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.
Recommendable to most
over caramelised and a bit treacly, a good dessert rum or for those who prefer their rums more like liqueur. Worth a try and also worth having for sharing sweet after dinner party drams or for those friends girlfriends who like their sweet stuff.
Balení: hezká butýlka akorát do ruky. Výborné je, že i po vyprázdnění obsahu vypadá pořád moc pěkně.
Kdo má rád sladší rumy, je to klasika která nesmí chybět v žádné sbírce. A kdo se chce rumům věnovat, měl by být jedním z prvních na seznamu. Je sladký do karamelu, jemný, chutná i ženským a kvalita naprosto odpovídá ceně. Nechá se popíjet celý večer.
Great sipping rum. Flavours of chocolate, biscuit, caramelised hazelnut and sherried fruits. Very smooth with a slight spice on the finish.
For those who like a rum that is slightly sweet and dry, this is not your rum. The first taste of this rum reminded me of the aguardiente, a liquor that I got tired of drinking and now I can barely tolerate. This is why my rating of this rum is so low.
In mouth: caramel/toffee and vanilla. Slight burn.
Aftertaste is sweet at first and then you can taste something bitter (orange peel maybe?)
In nose: vanilla, caramel
My brother bought me three bottles of this and it is very very good. Only should be consumed straight (maybe with a little water) - it is complex with strong vanilla and smoke notes. An absolute favourite and the nifty bottle has ye-oldy piratey feel to it as a bonus...
Can’t beat the reserva. Converted me from Congac to Rum as the best grog to swill around in a balloon glass at the end of the evening. Tried other quality sipping rums, but this one is yet to be beaten. Better yet, Waitrose supermarket and Amazon in the UK stocks it .....so don’t have to purchase from obscure bottle shops.
Diplomatico is a safe entry into the world of dark rums. Smooth, subtle and not too sweet strikes the right balance for most palettes.
"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"

"The palate evokes chocolate sauce and the sweet toffee, fudge and tropical fruit flavours from the nose"
Smells sweet. It is fruity, oranges, grapes and raisins with scents of chocolate and a sweet almost syrupy.
"The tasting notes on the site are very accurate vanilla, fudge/toffee sauce are noticeable as are notes of vanilla and a finish which is slightly bitter like cocoa which leaves a hit of oakiness on the taste buds. The finish is pretty short. ."
