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
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.
Brown Sugar, Caramel, Vanilla and Orange notes with a fairly rough, spirity Alcohol note throughout.
I wouldn't refuse a glass of it, but a Bottle would probably be never finished unless it ends up in Cocktails.
Its balanced and well aged. I'm surprised to see some of the low ratings. For the price I think its a great buy. It's sweet and punchy...the way most aged rums should be. It's not over oaked or a whisky wanna be. I think this one is a sleeper, very under rated.
after few sips it is reminding you of its older brother, however this one needs few more things to go, doesnt mean it is a bad choice at all, good for sipping, definitely great for cocktails, the price is great as well
Definitely a good rum. Has all the starting flavors of a higher end rum, just a bit harsh neat. It seemed to have gotten lost in the few things I tried to mix it with, Root Beer, some kinda Mango Orange drink.. like completely hidden. Might just be because the other stuff was too strong.
Chill it in the fridge for a little and it cuts the harshness considerably while keeping a lot of flavor. Easily fits in the hand.. no need for a glass.
The most surprising fact with the Diplomatico Reserva is the tiny price difference compared with the superb Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva and a massive difference in taste. Skip this bottle and go straight to the Reserva Exclusiva, you will not regret that decision a second.
