Diplomatico Reserva rum is distilled from molasses using both copper pot and column stills. The rum is then aged in small oak casks for between 2 and 8 years before blending and bottling.
the Diplomatico distillery is located on the northern slopes of the Andes mountains in Venezuela. The area has a rich rum history dating to 1896,
Tasty, but not quite great
Diplomatico has so many great rums, this one was a little disappointment. Go with the reserve Exclusiva or Mantuano don’t wast your money. Sweet with alcohol burn, not a lot more.
A bit more harsh, less sweet and complex than Reserva Exclusiva. Price is fair, but I prefer to add more money and buy something better.
The problem I had with this one is it wasn’t quite a sipper it wasn’t matured enough but at the same time it would have been a shame to mix it. Overall I would recommend it to newer rum drinkers but as you go through more rims you probably won’t have it again.
I have mixed feelings about this one, while is not bad at all, it has a prominent alcoholic note, a lot of added sugar and it’s certainly inferior to its ‘exclusiva’ counterpart. 5,5 bottles, curious one.
