Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Delicate flavour lovely chocolate taste afterwards amazingly sweet on the rocks to mix with any mixer would be sacrilege. THis is a genuine favourite.
This is my favorite rum. And the best thing is his price :)
Als Einsteiger für mich bisher der beste Rum den ich probiert habe, unglaublich mild. Faszinierender Geschmack nach Toffee, oder auch dunkler Schokolade.
It is one of those rums that you definitly want to go back and drink it again. I bought this botlle and I am sure I will repeat this purchace someday. Great rich taste, fruits and some wodden flavour, one of better rums I have tasted, as for flaws it is litlle bit too sweet in my opninion.
Final verdict: Maybe some day I will give it another shot
Very good classic taste. Chocolate and vanilla, but smokey. Probably the best for this price.

Hey this is what rum is supposed to taste like. Tremendous flavor all the richness you would expect. Buy this, drink this. One of my favs.
On the nose, it was welcoming, but upon first taste, as the cold liquid surrounded my pallet, I sensed a slightly medicinal flavor. Another sip. Then another. Each time getting better. It took me a glass, but it grew on me. It tastes authentic and I don’t have any qualification to say that, but it tastes like original recipe rum. To this day I find that the value and the flavor profile makes this a very strong performer.
I found this rum to be very flavorful but not overbearing or over the top.
A very balanced rum with strong hints of cocoa, vanilla and caramel with a hint of smoke. A nice sipper and mixer this one of the better affordable rums today.
Very nice drink, smooth, tasty and easy to drink over ice.
This is probably a classic one. It is very sweet and creamy. If it was a hint less sweet, it would score a 9. Yet, I found it impressive and remarkable. Will definitely buy more.
This one is for sitting by the fire and truly enjoying a glass of rum. Don’t even think about mixing it with anything
A nice sweet taste. I get this rum on special occasions
Well, just opened it yesterday and a bit surprised how good this stuff is in good company. I think everybody understand I had something special before going out.
Truly great sipper! Excellent.
My favorite sipping rum, move over Zacapa and Flor de Caña 12! If you don’t like smooth, complex/smokey and sweet, then move on.
No ice, neat only!
Uhm.... not probably the best, the! best rum i've had in some years. I know i will buy another one when its empty. Smooth tasty rum, very good flavour.
Ausgeglichen, ausgewogen, zurückhaltende Süsse, angenehme Würze
Previously "Diplomatico" it was rebranded "Botucal" allegedly due to a law suit by Aldi in Germany.
It is a sweetened and coloured blend of Venezuelan rums.
It is sweet (4/5) and carries a strong Vanilla note on the nose and palate.
It is smooth with a gentle burn.
A good introduction to rum, but if you like whisky and brandy this is far too sticky.
The nosing is quite nice with sweet and fruity notes (raisins). The palate adds some notes of chocolate but does not develop any further from that point. Instead the sweetness is getting ever more dominant and the sweetness stays also predominantly with the finish. So if you like sweet rum stuff this might be pleasant. But if you are looking for a full bodied, rich and flavorful rum you might order something else. Gets only a 5 as the degree of sweetness is dubious.
The perfect Rum you can always choose of you want to taste something special
what can i say. i like most of the diplomatico rums.
smooth and interesting to taste
Probably the best sipping rum on the market. Very nice and complex taste where choco, caramel and vanilla dominate. If you want a wonderful gift for a friend pick this rum.
I don't enjoy this rum very much. Overall just uninspirational with a nice presentation.
I feel the flavour profile is just clouded and not very interesting for me.
The plantation linup both the 7 and 15 I believe are just much more fun than this if you're into sweeter sipping rums. It's not bad but damn they do charge for this. Not a huge fan...
