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.

A tasty sip, not as smoky as its bigger brother but still a mighty fine one.

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.

Bon rhum mais tire un peu trop sur l'alcool. Le reserva exclusive est meilleur.

Diplomatico has so many great rums, this one was a little disappointment. Go with the reserve Exclusiva or Mantuano don’t wast your money. Sweet with alcohol burn, not a lot more.

Average rum. Not great, not terrible. Just okay...

A bit more harsh, less sweet and complex than Reserva Exclusiva. Price is fair, but I prefer to add more money and buy something better.

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.

From Venezuela, this value price rum demonstrates some very sweet notes on nose.

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.
