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.
very cheap taste, sharp and boring
smell poor....I dont like this rum.
This is absolutely swill. It should be a great mixer or ok sipper based on price. But this isn’t even worth mixing. This is the most terrible rum I’ve ever tasted. I’ve never given a rum a 1 until this. Undrinkable
Unlike his 12 years old sibling, Diplomatico Reserva rum was taken from the cask way too early and that is why it is not good for me to drink straight. 55%
a decent sipper for the price point if you like a bit of sweetness.
Harsh, alcoholy, burns. Expensive mixer and not the best one at that.
But not great. The Exclusiva is a significant step up. Maybe this is a 6.5.
Not realy my taste, but a couple of friends to my enjoys it. So maybe it´s just me.
Just thick enough to make it enjoyable, but not so much as to create too much of a syrupy experience. Nice spices come through as well.
Rum. Sweetish, non intrusive but also not really remarkable. Easy to forget but a choice which will not do any harm.
For me, all the rums in the diplimatico family are excellent. This is the baby of the family but is still very smooth and palatable neat or on the rocks. I dont mix this rum as the flavours stand on their own.
Sampled Diplomatico Reserva rum and while not nearly as sweet as the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva it nevertheless is too sweet for my liking. In addition I found it lacked complexity. Good price for entry level rum but this simply is not for me.
Bon rhum mais sans plus, manque de finesse mais le gout est bon
Rhum assez simple. Facile a boire. Sur les épice. Loin de son grand frère
Not as refined and smooth as the Reserva Exclusiva (my favourite to date) and certainly not as sweet. Needs a few minutes to breathe before tasting.
Tento rum je horsi ako jeho 12-rocny surodenec, avsak stale je to skvely rum. Urcite mi viac chuti ako nove Mantuano, skoda ze uz sa nevyraba. Na bezne popijanie je to dobra volba a nestoji ani tak vela. Je ostrejsi ako 12-rocny.
I like this rum, not a lot of age but very enjoyable as a good rum and coke or can be enjoupyednon a rock or two...
If you just want a rum and coke, go for this Diplomaitco Reserva. Only reason why I tried this rum is because my local store didn't have Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. Not good for sipping and I only drink it when there's nothing else on my shelf. Still a big fan of Diplomatico, but I will never buy this rum again it I can help it. With that said this is still better than other popular rums on out there.
Nice Price, nice Ron. Smooth and mild at the start. Sip and wait, and wait but then it burns and kills all flavor. Pity.....
I went searching for my favorite Venezuelan rum, which is Ron Pampero Anaversario, but they were all sold out. Ever since I spent one day in Caracas way back in 1991, I first got to try an incredible one called Gran Selecto, and still have the empty bottle. Lo and behold, the fine print on it says Santa Teresa and it is available locally, so that one is next on my list to find!
I had heard so much about the Diplomatico rums from Venezuela and this liquor store had three to choose from. I was suckered in by the fancy bottle and moderate price on this one. The excitement ended when I opened it up when I got home. There is too much of a hint of rubbing alcohol in this one for my tastes. Yes, it can be sipped neat or on the rocks, so it would therefore make a good mixer. There is just not enough to get excited about to justify me buying any more from Diplomatico. Not bad, but not good. It can't seem to make up it's mind.
In terms of my enjoyment I would slot this above El Dorado 12 and below the 15. A worthy younger brother to the excellent Reserva Exclusiva.
The Reserva Exclusiva is my go to sipping rum. I bought this one when I wanted to cut down costs a little. This is by no means it's big brother, but I can taste that they are related. The toffee is still there, the vanilla is still there and that little hint of dried fruit. A bit more sharply alcoholic in taste but not enough to discourage me. Another plus is that I don't feel like i'm committing sacrilige using this in drinks or with coke or ice.
I found this one on sale for less than $20. Very tasy and a great value. Not as good as the Diplomatico Exclusiva but very nice. sweet and easy drinking with some caramel and vanilla flavors.
My everyday rum that I don't mind sharing with friends who want to add mix
