Now this is some good stuff
The entire series of Diplomatico Single Vintage is incredibly well made and with amazing flavour, balance and complexiy. Also they are super smooth despite having very little sweetness which shows this is the work of a master distiller.
The 2002 edition had a spicy flavour of roasted oak and treacle, scoring a record 94/100 in my notes! Hands down the best rum I have ever tasted!
Mooie zachte rum die het best tot zijn recht komt op kamertemperatuur. Heeft wat tijd in het glas nodig om alle smaken naar voren te krijgen.
Au nez, le Diplomatico vintage 2002 dégagent des arômes de café, de vanille et une légère note de caramel . Viennent ensuite des notes subtiles de bois. Pour finir, des arômes d'épices douces se font senties en arrière-plan.
I wish I had gotten my hands on a bottle of my own, fortunately my dad has one. So smooth and complex. Sweet with notes of caramel, vanilla and orange. Looong finish that makes you long for more. Top, top rum
This is seriously NOT a great rum. The sherrywine + sugar added (premiumisation by more sugar) is NOT impressive at all. Diplomatico's base spirit in this sucks. And no amount of coverup helps. Sad to see how easily others buy the storyline of a "fine spirit". It is a far cry from that.
