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,
Somewhat more boozy and brash than the mellow Exclusiva, but still worth sipping straight up or in a better cocktail. Not top shelf, but a definitely solid back-up.
Moins sucré que le "reserva exclusiva", ce rhum est en fait assez différent.
Plutôt sec en bouche, sa palette d'arômes (vanille, fruits secs, tabac) est troublée par une note d'alcool très présente.
Pas désagréable, il n'a pas le charme de son "grand frère".
Nothing overtly wrong with it. But to my taste, too sweet and lacking in concentration and sophistication. Not a rum I'd ever buy again. Quite well priced though and can see that it would appeal to many.
I like to pour this one into a glen cairn glass and let it sit for 20 minutes or so before sipping. Good flavor with depth, a little hot in the throat.
Did you hesitate when your hand reached for the Exclusiva, thinking it outside your price point? Yeah, I did that, and ended up here. This seems like the right introductory Venezuelan rum experience. And it is distinct, given Diplomatico's unique production. An enjoyable experience neat or on the rocks, yet not quite at the high level of rums in admittedly higher price points.
The problem I had with this one is it wasn’t quite a sipper it wasn’t matured enough but at the same time it would have been a shame to mix it. Overall I would recommend it to newer rum drinkers but as you go through more rims you probably won’t have it again.
I have mixed feelings about this one, while is not bad at all, it has a prominent alcoholic note, a lot of added sugar and it’s certainly inferior to its ‘exclusiva’ counterpart. 5,5 bottles, curious one.
This rum s not as good as the Reserva Exclusiva, but at 2/3rds the price, it’s great to keep around for guests who do not have the knowledge or palate to discern the difference.
Why do you want To drink this? Its quite good but we have “Green” diplomatico which is only few more bucks expensive. So Yes! I like this. Really great if you cant find the “Green” one
I’m a big fan of Diplomatico. I’ve tried and rated several offerings. One thing that is a commonality between them is the price. This is a 2-8 year aged rum that is sweetened. It is much like its older brother Reserva Exclusiva, except $10 cheaper. Very good for someone starting out in the rum world. I was surprised at how smooth and sweet it is. There is a little lingering aftertaste and it lacks a little complexity and aroma. But it’s a young rum and only cost $31! Overall I’d say it’s worth a try it will not disappoint.
De är stor skillnad mellan diplpmatico exclusivo och denna reserva.
Fördelen är att denna ofta finns på liten flaska, en av få i Sverige.
Smaken är bra lite stark och saknar avslut utan blir lite spretig och spritig.
Men ok både smak och pris och extra plus för att den finns i liten flaska.
I tried because i didnt have any other choice. Very dry and if you have ever tried the "brother" exclusiva reserva you will be disapointed. Still is a good rum to enjoy with ice but not to be your favorite
Similar to its older brother but it's topped with quite an edgy alcoholic taste. spend the extra money and get the Reserva Exclusiva
This full flavor rum is perfect for an afternoon on the porch. I prefer to drink at room temperature. The aroma and color will have your family and friends wonder what delicious treat you’re drinking.
