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
I'm still fairly early on in my rum journey but this is the best I've had so far. If you don't think this excellent rum than I want to know what you're drinking. Certainly the best at this price point.
I thought I knew rum before I drank this but this quickly turned me away from some of my favourites.
Its smooth, agile and soft on the pallet with enough flavour to keep you wanting more.
Silky smooth and morish. I find this better than the reserva. With or without mixer (ginger beer). Been a staple in my cupboard for years and also converted many to the wonders of rum!
Really amazed at the low score average here!
For me this is the ultimate bang for buck Rum. Awesome taste, for a great price. (Not even touching the €25 mark)
The aroma is great, the taste and after taste even better.
I read some of the comments, just don't mix it with Coke. (A dark and cloudy on the other hand 😎)
This is a great rum. I love Diplomatico!
Not quite as sweet or smooth as the Diplomatico Exclusiva, but still great - especially for the incredibly low price of only $19.99 (Total Wines & More). Smells and tastes of toffee, vanilla, oak, and molasses. A fantastic rum which deserves a great score.
I don't agree with the 6.8 aggregate here. I was very pleasantly surprised. Nice and sweet, no wince-inducing alcohol bite. Just really, really nice.
I used to sell this a while back in an old bar i worked in and remember trying it around the time i was really falling in love with rum (Dont get me wrong ive always loved rum, but theres a time when your growing up and its no longer 'ooh i like rum, ill ave a rum n coke' and it becomes 'seriously i friggin LOVE rum let me see your selection, line up those 6 i need to try them all!!') as i was saying, it was a small place and this was probably the best rum in there! Opens with almost a fruit brulee integrating the caramel, citrus, light spice and dried fruits but lasts on the palate leaving you with a creamy, chocolatety sweetness that goes on so long and so smooth. We like!
