Tasted this at a friends house party. I had it a couple of times before but for me right now it carries a lill bit to much alcohol punch. The this might fulfill its purpose some times. But not right now. Need to look into Diplomatico´s finner releases.

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.

Very good with passion icecream... Name is "trou créole". It's good rum but for cocktails, not alone...

Pour une dégustation, il n'est clairement pas au niveau ! Néanmoins, pour des cocktails, il est une excellente base.

A sweet and light venezuelian rum is this diplomatico, but I personnaly prefer it's old sister, the Reserva Exclusiva. But it's still easy to drink.

It's a very good sip, but I had the Exclusiva first and it just can't compare to its big brother.

So, Andy has finally converted me to Rum &, having tried several apparently good rums over the course of the evening, this was far & away my favorite. I can't claim to be an expert but this had a wonderfully smooth & spicy flavour with a hint of vanilla. I think it was the spiciness that I really enjoyed. It may be sacrilege but adding just one small ice cube opens it up beautifully.

I suspect doctoring in this rum, not nauseatingly sweet like Fortuna 8 yr but still too much for my taste. Pleasant but not complex sipper, almost a dessert rum. For about the same price El Dorado 12 yr is much better.

Edit - well I found figures on added sugar in rum, and surprisingly enough there was a relatively small amount of added sugar in this one - 7 g/ltr, a fraction of the amount added to the worst offenders - one of which is the Reserva Exclusiva, with 41 g/ltr.(!!!) I have never tried the exclusiva, because I had heard it is such a sweet bomb, and now I doubt I ever will.
