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,
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.
Bij Alex op. Zeker niet slecht maar er zijn betere.
The Reserva Exclusiva stands out from other sweet rums because it is so well balanced. The Reserva isn't. It's sweet but just a little bit too light, what makes it boring.
Très bon rhum d'initiation mais pour quelques euros de plus optez pour le Reserva Exclusiva.
This rum is good, but not that good, as his older brother Exclusiva. But for the price, you will not find much better rums. I can recommend it with no hesitation.
Plus simple que son grand-frère, ce rhum est néanmoins délicat et sans agressivité. Il lui manque juste un peu de complexité. Bon rapport q/p.
Although it is not as sweet as the Reserva Especial (positive for me) this 8yo Reserva is so much less fruity than its bigger brother so they don't appear to belong to the same family. It is a nice rum but don't buy it just because you can't find de 12yo reserva exclusiva because you would get disappointed like me. Need to try it again without trying to compare it to the 12yo. It's ok, but it could be smoothier and more fruity and caramel.
Edited: Just tasted the same rum but another bottle, must say something with my first bottle was not right. The second one was a lot smoother and simply better (can't define why, but it was better).
Bought this when looking for good value sipping and mixing rum. Rather disappointed , a little too smooth and characterless for my taste.
Works well enough in a few cocktails.
I only drink this with cola. It's not good enough to drink it pure or on the rocks!
Rhum d'entrée de gamme pour Diplomatico. Tout de même il pourrait être consommé straight. Pour ma part je l'utilise dans mes cocktails.
Pretty smooth, hints of vanilla and licorice. Subdued smoke/wood.
Sweet and soft taste. Little chocolate and caramel. But taste is little too thin to my taste. I need some stronger taste.
A good bottle for many uses but no so well straight up. Go for Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, that one will not let you down
Très bon rapport qualité prix. Son élevage lui donne une complexité que j'aime particulièrement.
En og samme rom, bare i hver sin flaske. Fik denne for 150 kr hos Nielsens Discount i tyskland. Glæder mig til at sammen ligne den med store broderen Diplomatico Extra Reserva som har et et fantastisk godt ry!
Nærmere beskrivelse ang. smag mere kommer hurtigts muligt.
assez fort. tout comme le "anejo" je le préfère allongé,
Nice entry point for Rum tasters. If you have the choice beetween the RE and this one go for the Exclusiva. Still tasty and sugary but stronger and less vanilla flavors which you can find in the RE.
Example of an average rum which is actually not so bad but there is nothing special in it.
πολύ καλό ρούμι ανώτερο απο κάποια άλλα τα οποία πασάρονται σαν εξαίσια αλλά κατώτερο του Diplamatico reserva exclusiva.αν είναι να αγοράσει κάποιος ένα diplomatico ας έχει την πράσινη ετικέτα
this run is a great starting point for people trying to get in to the sipping rum world. I think for the price you are not going to find much better.
A very tasty rum with some exceptional flavors, for a very reasonable price.
no spikes in the flavour a smooth rum with subtle round vanilla sweetness to it
urcite sa oplati priplatit na grand reservu popripade siahnut po inom rume. U mna jeden z tazsie pitelnych rumov v tejto cenovej kategorii.
denne rom syntes jeg sjovt nok, ryger lettere ned end deres reserva exclusiva model.
syntes det er en rigtig lækker rom for få penge.
