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.
This good rum can be drunk on the rocks, however quite a bit of alcohol taste. I love this with cola and a lot of ice! Can be mixed with a stronger concentration of rum and still be very drinkable.
Reserva is a good quality rum with lot's of flavor for a reasonably priced rum. This is a lighter rum that works well as a sipper. I keep this one on my back bar for a less filling after dinner sipper.
A nice light and airy rum. Not bitter or sharp. There's nothing in it that really stand out for me other than a lingering something that I can't quite hit on. I had this rum with a cheese fondue and it paired quite nicely.
Un bon rapport qualité/prix qui permet de se faire la main dans le "monde" du rhum vieux sans se ruiner. Une excellente base pour les cocktails.
A light smell of vanilla with some caramel. In the mouth a short vanilla taste wit longuer caramel finish but this rum is very dry, slightly astringent and definitely too young (thanks to RhumsTeq for the terms).
It's an interresting rum for starting tasting "aged" rum but not exceptional.
J'ai testé via un tasteme ce diplomatico reserva, ayant connu auparavant le reserva exlusiva, du coup celui ci étant moins sucré, il m'a moins séduit ... je le re-gouterai à l'occasion en essayant d'être plus objectif !!!
El ron Diplomatico Reserva extra anejo has a great nose with a strong flavor of vanila and a discrete note of coconut.
The nose is really good however the taste is totally different: On the palate, this rum is very dry, slightly astringent and definitely too young. I found it very tannic with notes of spices, predominantly pepper.
In conclusion, this rum is rather a disappointment for me, and the note I've granted it (6) is the worst I've provided to a Very Old rum. Even if the difference is just of 1 point, I find this rum far behind the rums I've noted with a 7, such as the Angostura 1919 or the Plantation rum Barbados 2000.
