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
Nose : sugar, fudge, cheap rum, cough syrup.
Taste : sugar, fudge, cheap rum, cough syrup. Very un-natural (who wrote about oak, vanilla or refined aromas? Where is it ??)
Finish : what ? Ah yes, some cheap candy aftertaste. And the need to drink a large glass of water after all that cloying , palate-drying sugar.
Worst than I thought. Very disappointed. It is not even a good flavoured rum liqueur.
This beverage dos not taste like an aged rum by any way. Everyone has the right to drink and enjoy it , I have no problem with that but please, please, stop to call it a rum !!!
Nez : sucre, caramel, alcool type rhum de base pour les gâteaux, sirop pour la toux (plus précisément : broncorhinol, pour les français!)
En bouche : pareil. Ecoeurant et artificiel. Qui a parlé de boisé ou de vanille, ils sont passés où ???
Final : arrière goût bizarre comme après un bonbon. Envie immédiate de boire un grand verre d'eau après tout ce sucre écœurant.
C'est bien pire que ce qu'on m'avait décrit. Une mauvaise blague, à peine un rhum arrangé, on pourrait peut être appeler ça "liqueur à base de rhum" ?
Cette boisson n'a en aucune manière le moindre point commun avec un vieux rhum. Chacun a le droit d'aimer ça, aucun problème... mais s'il vous plait arrêtez de dire que vous aimez le rhum, ça n'en est pas.
This rum has that plastic taste that comes from mass produced spirits and finishes really sweet. It’s not bad for the price but I wouldn’t rate it on my list of favorites.
I like this alot. Its a great everyday rum. Beats the zacapa 23 solera and should be the natural choice for beginners. Sweet caramell, vanilla with a bottom of smokey oak. Very nice alcohol balance.
Its a must in every hobby pirates collection.
This one is always in our cabinet. Just finished the 5th bottle and of course we will buy a new one. Easy, smooth and gives you a nice taste that lingers
No need to mix with Coke, it already tastes like Coke on its own. When I sip it, I'd swear someone was sneaking some Coke into my rum. But it is super-smooth and very enjoyable.
Ce rhum est un rhum édulcoré sans réelle surprise. C'est bon, sucré quasi sirupeux mais ça manque de caractère et de complexité pour en faire un rhum de premier choix. On pourrait dire que c'est un rhum consensuel pour "débutant"
This rum is a sweetened rum without any real surprise. It's good, sweet almost syrupy but it lacks character and complexity to make it a rum of choice. One could say that it is a consensual rum for "beginner"
Reading a lot of reviews, i expected a better rum.
It' s realy good, but not as a lot of people say.
At the nose i smell like a sweet sparkling wine, with woody and sweet notes.
On the palate is very sweet and complex, with a little bit of burn and a medium finish.
For the price, i think i will buy another bottle.
Sweet yet you get that horrible aftertaste full of artificial sweeteners. So much added sugar in it... There are tons of better choices. Not really a good choice. A sugar web, that catches rum beginners.
"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"
via Inu A Kena
"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. ."
