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,
Cheap rum that works for drinks not as a sipper. Spending a little more and get the reserva exclusiva is well worth the money.
I’m a big fan of Diplomatico. I’ve tried and rated several offerings. One thing that is a commonality between them is the price. This is a 2-8 year aged rum that is sweetened. It is much like its older brother Reserva Exclusiva, except $10 cheaper. Very good for someone starting out in the rum world. I was surprised at how smooth and sweet it is. There is a little lingering aftertaste and it lacks a little complexity and aroma. But it’s a young rum and only cost $31! Overall I’d say it’s worth a try it will not disappoint.
De är stor skillnad mellan diplpmatico exclusivo och denna reserva.
Fördelen är att denna ofta finns på liten flaska, en av få i Sverige.
Smaken är bra lite stark och saknar avslut utan blir lite spretig och spritig.
Men ok både smak och pris och extra plus för att den finns i liten flaska.
Not as Nice as the older Brother but allright as a sipper. Also good as a cuba libre
I tried because i didnt have any other choice. Very dry and if you have ever tried the "brother" exclusiva reserva you will be disapointed. Still is a good rum to enjoy with ice but not to be your favorite
Similar to its older brother but it's topped with quite an edgy alcoholic taste. spend the extra money and get the Reserva Exclusiva
This full flavor rum is perfect for an afternoon on the porch. I prefer to drink at room temperature. The aroma and color will have your family and friends wonder what delicious treat you’re drinking.
As the years went by in my Rum travels, I shied away frim the ultra sweets that newbie rum mavens trend towards (Zacapa, Most Plantations, and the so called other Sugar-Bombs)).
At the start I thought they were great also).
So, I stuck my higher aged Diplomatico's and El Dorado's, in the back of the closet.
Then I read a rum article reminding me that the higher the age on rums with multiple ages, the sweeter they are.
I re-did this Dip. Resv. 8yo, and it's very, very nice !
Sweet but not TOO, like the 15yo.
I am humbled.
Tickles the taste buds as one can hope for, try it.
Ingen höjdare, duger som drinkrom. Väldigt spritig och tråkig
Less added sugar than its exclusiva brother. Go for this one if you have to choose. And add the sugar yorself, if you really want it.
Bon gout, mais arriere gout puissant dans la gorge. Vraiment moins bon que son grand frere le Diplomatico reserva exclusiva.
This is a rum I would have no issue with mixing. It’s is a nice sipper, but it does need ice and will have the alcohol burn on the finish. Still a great value and good entry level diplomatico.
Little brother of the exclusive. But stlll good. Good price, good taste. Cant go wrong.
Prijemne sladke tony ve vuni i chuti. Velmi prijemne me tato lahev prekvapila a šlape na paty exclusivě!
Bought this on an offer as Exclusiva is one of my favs. This is similar but lacking the depth in flavour of the Exclusiva. I generally mix this for a nice Cuba Libra.
Definitely worse than the Reserva Exclusiva.. boring and flat taste.. not worth the price, even though it is not an expensive bottle
Excelente en aroma y sabor para tomarlo en las rocas
This is a great rum, caramel and fruity with a more traditional rum finish, great all round and a nice treat.
The orange lable Diplomatico Reserva was the Rum that changed everything i expected and known about Rum as a Rum novice living in a market where Rum is not too popular and choices are limited byeond the few big brands and the high tier extra aged rums that may cost small fortune. as a Single Malt drinker i felt initiated into a completely new dimension, different than the mass market products i embarked on a new journey. My impressions of the Orange labeled Reserva were of total surprise and the urge to drink more and more, such a pleasant sip, such rich complexity of a rainbow color of sweetness, from Raisins via Coffee, Tobacco, Chocolate and fantastic Sugar molasses. it's so delicate on the throat i would compare it to Solera Grand Reserva and close to XO in cognac and to the smoothness of 18 year old Malts. seriously good stuff in this bottle. was amazed and disappointed to discover that this is now discontinued and replaced by another bottling called Mantuano which is also very nice but lacks the smoothness of this rewarded pure sipper bottle.
I get a lot of chocolate/caramel/toffee and wine-like flavours from this.
If you can't find the Exclusiva and haven't already tried it, this is a good runner up. The batch is always solid, better than the Anejo, and goes down easily. Great in a rum cocktail, substitute for Gosling's or other dark rum in a Dark 'n Stormy and you have a winner that is both easy to find and not hard on the wallet.
It's very good rum for this price. It has nice fruity and vanilla hints. It's good on the rocks and straight up. It will not disappoint you.
Some funky fermented sugar cane notes coming off this one, possibly some citrus too.
A nice rum from venezuela most likely with some added sugar. A reasonable price at the store, and one I have had a few times.
Makes a nice cocktail but also a half decent sipper if you have nothing else available but low tier options.
Good bottle this one.. quarks are always a nice touch. an easy 7. easy.
