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.
I"ve previously gone through a couple of the DRE bottles and like it, but sometimes it's almost too sweet so I would drink it on the rocks to cure that issue. With that in mind, and also a great price point, I decided to try out some of this for a change. Upon opening the bottle there is that beautiful familiar Diplomatico scent of vanilla,banana,toffee but in a slightly milder manner. Pretty much just what you would expect and the taste also reflects that. In the mouth it's much less syrupy/viscous, less pronounced and less sweet than the DRE while still having the same flavors. I honestly think that if I added a spoonful of sugar to this it would be exactly the DRE. Of course there is more heat to it (sugars always smooth out a rum) but it's not deadly alcohol tasting and is still sippable IMO. Overall I recommend this to those who like the smell of DRE but think it tastes too sweet, and to those who want those Diplomatico flavors in a mixed drink such as a Dark and Stormy but don't want to use the DRE as a mixer. Solid stuff.
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.
Ο φτωχός συγγενής του Reserva Exclusiva ....... Δε νομίζω ότι πρέπει να γίνει σύγκριση ... είναι άδικο και άσκοπο !! Η σχετικά καλή τιμή αποτελεί ίσως και τον μοναδικό λόγο ύπαρξης αυτής της φιάλης .... Σε αυτά τα χρήματα όμως, έχεις αρκετές καλλίτερες ετικέτες ....... Παρόλα αυτά (για να μην το αδικήσουμε) πίνεται ευχάριστα και αποτελεί μία safe - απλά καλή - επιλογή !!!!!!!
Loads of sweetness, but just the right amount. Caramel, vanilla, but hints of oak. The molasses for this rum is aged perfectly with the right amount of kick. With a smoky taste and oak bite, you'll definitely want to enjoy this rum more than once in a night. Highly recommend this bottle.
