I have to say I find some of the negative comments about this little beauty a bit uncalled for. I also have to say I am no expert in Rhum but whilst people get carried away with the aficionado talk about it not being a Rhum because its too sweet, this may, in fact, be a shortcoming in their knowledge. I'm not going to go into a chemistry lesson about sugars but in summary, this sugary taste can also be achieved in the process without adding sugar to sweeten it and can be in fact a byproduct of the process and may be intentional for the reasons mentioned in the negative comments, however, it does not necessarily make it a liqueur. I and many others like this Rhum and that is what matters. It's a bit like people who say it's an awful wine because the experts say it is, when in fact it could be very nice. I think maybe the wording should actually read something like "it's a little/too sweet for my palette" not condemn it to not being a Rhum.

Mediocre, fair, etc.. I will say that it had an unexpected, strange agave/tequilla note...

Bon rhum qui est agréable mais généralement trop cher.

Geschmacklich ganz nett und gefällig. Ein hervorragender Einsteigerrum; auch ich habe mit diesem hier meine liebe zum Rum entdeckt.
Für meinen (aktuellen) Geschmack viel zu stark gesüsst und gefärbt.

The best way I’ve found to enjoy diplomatico is with orange zest and a few ice cubes. Also very good with cola like most rums

This is a nice rum but sooo pricey in BC, and to me just not worth the price tag.

Interesting rum with beautiful and quite complex nose but very sweet (I would say too sweet) palate. Good sipping rum but only for those who can stand excess sweetness. Reasonably priced and widely available.

Tasting notes:

Nose: Sweet, dark dried fruits (prunes, figs, bananas), spices (cinnamon, cloves), tropical fruits, cherries, fruit caramel, orange peel, sandalwood and new leather on the background

Palate: Very sweet, cherries, oranges, “winter” spices, toffee and honey notes, some liquorice and oak come later

Finish: Medium-long, sweet, dry, oaky with cherry jam and latte aftertaste

Best rum to enjoy neat. Sweet and no burn. Also not crazy expensive.

Toto je naozaj klasika medzi rumami. Pre niekoho sa moze zdat viac sladky.

Výborné pitie, sladší. Pri priamom porovnaní so Zacapa, hladší, sladší, menej korenistejší. Na druhý deň po Zacape pohárik voňal, po Diplomaticu nie.
