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!

Very balanced aroma, body and tail. Full body with decent alcoholic touch.

Not as sweet as the diplomatico Reservas exclusiva, but with all the complexity and a lot more. Delicious, honey, baking spice, vanilla, caramel, oak, but without the overly sweet/thickness of the exclusiva. Exceptional

Second only to the 2000, this is a very smooth rum. It does need some time in the glass, but otherwise it’s amazing!

I drank this side by side with the Diplomatico 2000 and 2001, which are some of my all time favorite rums. The bottle was identical with the exception of the vintage. Smell and taste were nearly identical. If fact, I tried to distinguish them in a blind tasting, and struggled to tell them apart.

Has an amazing smell of rich butter toffee, caramel, and butterscotch, with a light sherry taste that isn't strong enough to detract from the rum. Taste is an amazing follow up to the nose. So good, the 43%abv strength is perfect. Simply an amazing rum!

Tried Diplomatico 2002 Single Vintage in Caracas last year and it is an amazingly smooth rum, but the reality is that Reserva Exclusiva is less than half the price and offers you 95% the same experience. In its own right, this is a spectacular rum. Try it out, you won't be disappointed. Single Vintage 2002 has a very nice high end bottle. Toffee, light oak and sherry are clearly identifiable to the nose and palate.

Needs time in the glass as it gently wakes up. I'm not qualified to discuss this rum properly, I only know I've found a special rum. I poured myself a small sample, made the most of it and now I feel almost nervous pouring myself more. It's as though this drink frowns at you for disturbing it without a valid reason. You're pouring me into that glass for no special reason?? How dare you.

Rum cognac. Proud owner.

Lækker rom. Flot, dufter dejlig. Og en rigtig god smag. Lille smule stærk eftersmag. Nok fra den blev lagert på sherryfad.
