One of my favourites
Very good rum for sipping with sweet taste that's relatively inexpensive. Very distinctive taste of smoky creamy caramel with very little burn.
Very tasty rum to drink solo, perfect on the rocks. It's very similar to el dorado 12. Highly recommended. For sure will get back to this when I finish the bottle
Nice dark hue with notes of sweet vanilla and oak on the nose. Mesmerizing.
The taste has a bit of bite, but is sweet vanilla rum cake. The flavor costs the palate and lingers. Make you beg for more. Fantastic.
If you’re looking for a rum that tickles the sweetness tastebuds on your tongue just the right way, look no further.
This rum, for me, is the epitome of a sweet, rich, decadent dessert drink. Yup. Sweet, but also complex enough to be enjoyed. And man that bottle is a great design. A benchmark in its category.
Is there added sugar? You bet. Is that a problem? Only for those that Aren’t maybe aware. For those that know but want sweet and refined, look no further.
A beautiful amber colour, with caramel and vanilla notes in the smell and the taste. This is an incredibly smooth rum to drink, with a deep and complex taste, with a mild enough taste to introduce non-neat drinkers to neat rum! If you haven't tried Diplomatico, go and buy a bottle!
"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. ."
