I walked past this bottle a sum total of 400 times and never pulled the trigger on it because something always seemed like a better buy for it's price. I finally bought this guy and gave it nothing but high praise before having it. Now my thing is I quite enjoyed the younger brother of the Diplomatico's was it outstanding? No but it was a a very nice not just for the price but in general. So I finally decided to buy this ugly bastard of a bottle and give it a try. First pop of the top it has that same spice fragrance that Bumbu and Kilo Kai have in it. Which made me excited because for reasons unknown that certain spice is quite good at making a well composed blend, i.e. removing the alcohol burn and making it one complete taste. Pouring it in the glass you get an overburden of alcohol smell and oak. Which is fine by me. However 1 quick swig of this and even letting it breath you get a large bit of burn. It's a very dry burn too, the worst kind. Now I mean you get the oak aged taste with a very very minor hint of that secret spice however the harshness over powers the flavors. After incinerating my tongue with repetitive intake of said liquid in an idea that the harshness would stop eventually (sometimes the first sip of any rum can be harsh) to no success. Ultimately I have found that the anejo is a much better rum in both cost and taste and I will continue to buy that bottle it need be rather than this. Mixed down it's actually a very nice drink with some strong oak and alcohol flavor however when I am paying $40+ for a bottle I don't like mixing. I want to enjoy it for all it's worth rather than polluting with diet coke. Save this one for the shelves and go for the Anejo.
*PS the secret spice is banana

Afraid of caramel and sweet i hesitated. But due to the high rating and very good price, worth giving a try. It sure is high above kraken. It has a delicate spiced aroma, drinks caramel sweet and easy but has a spicy after taste that makes it a Royal. No it certainly isnt an ordinary rhum. Actually the perfect desert rhum in a high class restaurant.

Délicieux rhum agé qui chauffe pas dans la gorge.
Pour l'instant mes préférés sont :
- Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva
- El Pasador de Oro X.O.

J'essaie de trouver d'autre rhum qui est dans le meme style que ceux la.

If you like sweet rum, you can try it. Sweet, no burn.

Nose: Baking Spices, cinnamon, toasted nuts
Taste: melted caramel and candied fig with some cola notes
Feel: So smooth but with a bit of burn on the backend which warms you just right.

Ever since a friend of mine get a bottle direct from Venezuela, and I have the chance to sip and then, to be very delighted with this marvelous Nectar of Gods, THIS HAS BEEN MY FAVORITE RUM WITH ANY DOUBT!!!
And the experience is totally complete with a special Habano...

Je to sladké, chutí to, ale je to skutočne ešte rum a nie už likér?

Really like the taste of the diplomatico. Fits perfectly with a cigar or just a sunny afternoon sipping

It is a good rum. Rum? Did I say rum? Actually when you check it closely you’ll realize it’s a liquor on sugar cane base. But anyhow it’s pretty good.
