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,
Auch sehr lecker
Etwas fruchtiger, leichter und süsser als der Reserva Exclusiva
dafür nicht so viel Tiefgang, aber sehr elegant.
Früchte, Vanille, Toffee, die typischen Rumaromen.
Für Einsteiger eine gute Wahl.
Also very delicious
Slightly fruity, lighter and sweeter than the Reserva Exclusiva
But not so much depth, but very elegant.
Fruits, vanilla, toffee, the typical rum flavors.
a good choice for beginners.
sec, trop de sensation d'alcool en bouche et finalement on ne retient pas grand chose de la dégustation... il y a tellement mieux chez Diplomatico!!!
After my second test I upgraded reserva to 78 but exclusiva so much better. I foundout it differsa lot base on bottle. You more I test you better it becomes.
If this Diplomatico is a good representation of Venezuelan rum then I offer my house to this country to settle their next embassy ;-)
In Cuba we are always told we make the best rum in the world, right?... Wrong!
Diplomatico reserva is a nice yet sweet rum that can challenge may of the cuban brands. I have rated this one 7 as I find it a bit harsh in the afterburn. I also find the smell a bit ethanolish... Overall I like this one as a sipper and for about ~38CAD in the Ontario, Canada marketplace is a much superior deal to others like the Matusalem solera 15.
This younger brother of the Reserva Exclusiva is by no means an inferiour rum. It is somewhat less sweet, more dry but still very nice to sip!
This one has a lot going on from the barrel aging but one would wish it was in that barrel just a little longer. This is Much better than the Anejo version. It has all the great flavors you would expect mainly I got chocolate, butterscotch, some vanilla. I finished this one rather quickly so overall a great product but for a little more a 12 year would totally eliminate the alcohol presence which was hidden greatly below the flavor but detectable. This one has a small amount of added sugar per testing but not as massive as Exclusiva.
God karamell doft initialt.
Smaken lite sträv och örtig.
Annorlunda men helt OK
This is a nice rum for the price, but there are others much easier to drink, like RZ23, Don Papa, and of course the Diplo Reserva Exclusiva.
Good rum, very smooth ,smell of vanilla with some caramel.
Very good rum, very smooth ,smell of vanilla with some caramel.
suprisingly sharp alcohol when drinking straight, for "up to 8y" old its bit strange, on the otherside taste is ok, what i loved with this rum was addition of coke. Something i would do again and again and again. Also price gave +1 to the final score.
Rhum sympa mais pas comparable au "Reserva Exclusiva". Il faut dire qu'il y a une belle différence de prix et il est plus sec. Son parfum est agréable, et bien que moins doux que son grand frère, il n’agresse pas la gorge non plus. Un rhum que je conseillerais.
I tried this for the first time this past weekend. I didn't realized how much I enjoyed it until my wife pointed out to me the bottle and how half full it was. I drank it with a coke as well as a shooter and truly enjoyed myself. Obviously I am not an expert so I won't go into details on how it appealed to my palate, I will just say that for me, for the price and taste, you can't go wrong.
I was fairly disappointed when i tried this.. The extra anejo is one of my "daily" rums.. And it has a clear spot in my cabinet.. Now to this guy..
A little bit too light sniff.. All the right tones are there.. But to little of them..
The taste i free from ethanol at the beginning.. But the longer in the mouth and the clear taste of ethanol evolves.. The finish isn´t pleasant either.. A clear bite from alcohol and a quick wiff of tatest.. I almost wondered WTF happened ?.. Tried it again and the same disapointment strikes again.. If this is the only diplomat you have tried.. Try another one.. They don´t taste like this at all..
Na to ako strašne mám rád ich vlajkovú loď, tak toto ma naozaj sklamalo
A really excellent rum for the price, lovely after flavors but the initial bite took some getting used to.
Recommend using a cube or more to mellow out the on-ramp, helped the deep flavors rise to the top.
Very good rum if you want some "good basic stuff" in your cabinet, certainly a must have bottle. Bottomline.
This is a good step up in quality from the 4 year old. Not as pricy as the Exclusiva 12 year old but not a smooth yet with a similar flavor. Would make an upscale mixer or a lower priced sipper.
Oproti Reserva Exclusiva je zde více cítit alkohol, ale dá se použít k nenáročnějšímu popíjení.
Při testování jsem využil možnosti přímého srovnání s Diplomatico 7 yo Añejo.
Aroma: V barvě je o rok starší 8y mnohem tmavší, a už barva vypadá slibně, po pravdě jsem nečekal takový rozdíl u rumu strašího jen o jeden rok...
Hutná, vyzrálá, mocná, plná čokolády, melasy, ale i kůže. Oproti mladšímu bráškovi jiná liga, žádný rušivý alkohol, paráda!
Chuť: Velmi jemný, delikátní, vyzrálost z něj jen čiší,kořeněná čokoláda, sušené fíky a datle.
Shrnutí: Oproti sedmiletému sourozenci velký skok směrem ke kvalitě.
7y získal ode mě 78bodů, tady je to rovných 85/100.
Při dalším nákupu nebudu váhat a určitě se vyplatí připlatit si něco málo za vyšší level.
Myslím, že v rámci rumů je tohle hodně dobře investovaná pětistovka...
Tak na zdraví.
not much difference in price to the exclusiva but its in a completely different class. Not nearly as smooth and the flavour doesn't have the depth of the exclusiva, if you have the choice spend the extra money.
Reserva is a very good rum for its price, although should not be compared to the mind-blowing Exclusiva. Greatwith coke as well as straight up.
Very nice taste and aftertaste, caramel flavor and really good balance it is a really good choice in his price-age range!
goede rum vol van smaak
Heerlijk om na een herfst wandeling weg te drinken
