Definitely have to try! It's my favourite rum at a reasonable price.
Fun fact - Botucal edition (in Poland) tastes better than its equivalent - Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva.
I prefer more dry flavours but this one is definitely worth of trying. Sweet but sweetness doesn't kill it's complexity. There occur bittery flavous, leather, tobacco. Very nice and smooth sipper.
Although the label seemed familiar, I couldn't place it and bought a bottle. Finding the same bottle with a Diplomatico label in my cabinet I realised why I recognized it. Different label, same rum. Very taste and a must have for every cabinet.
Ein sehr bekannter und zurecht allseits beliebter Rum, der sowohl pur als auch als Longdrink empfehlenswert ist.
Smooth, warm and sweet. Full body and long aftertaste. Perfect for beginners. Very good price.
Crack the top to smell sweet cinnamon and ginger tastes of walnut and brown sugar, awesome drop will savour this one.
This was my first "good" rum experience. I was over the moon and started ordering some bottles of rum... Now I have tried some other rums (especially without sugar) and Diplomatico became kind of boring for me. Still not bad, bad nothing special... If you like sugarbombs, give it a try!
Ist mit Sicherheit ein relativ gut schmeckender, gewichtiger Rum. Allerdings hab ich anhand des Preises bedeutend mehr erwartet. Ist ok, "echt gutes Zeux" für mich dagegen nicht wirklich. IMHO viel zu süß und etwas, für den Preis jedoch zu sprittig. Hat man allerdings ein Bier dabei, dann kann man auch öfters mal nippen und einen lustigen Abend verbringen ;-). Ordnet sich bei mir vor dem Havana Club Anejo Especial ein.
Very good rum, smooth and very tasty. I found myself sipping it too fast because it was so good. Love the aftertaste.
A unique rum, no harshness, just a pleasure to drink at a great price.
This might be the rum I would recommend to someone when they're first starting out. It was pretty good but just slightly "cough-syrupy" for my tastes.
This one should be saved in the glass so you can smiff IT all night long. Lush flavour and intense, Not too sweet taste.
until I find another.... I am always on the lookout for something new
En av dom första finrommen jag testade idag känns den lite för söt
I can not put into words how good this is. I mean... mmmm. Just try it! Its like rums bacon (If you like bacon)
Bar didn’t realize what they had. Excellent. Hints of vanilla.
So far my favorite rum. great straight or on ice.
This rum was an instant favorite for me. With notes of chocolate and toasted caramel the flavor was pleasant but not too sweet. There is almost no bite to it from the alcohol, making it an easy rum to drink and great for introducing friends to rum!
Quite sweet one. With strong notes of vanilla, chocolate and molasses.
Buon rum commerciale venezuelano, dolce, vanigliato. Tra i 12 anni uno dei migliori, con un finale leggero ma abbastanza presente.
A perfect aged rum from one of my favorite distilleries. Viva Venezuela!
Neat: nose is molasses/vanilla. No burn. Aromatic taste as weird as that sounds. Definite chocolate notes. Vanilla. Definitely grows on you. Worth having in your collection.
It's a dark and quite sweet rum made to please the palates of beginners and rum lovers alike. I can imagine that this ron may serve as a good introduction for those, who are used to drink Cuba libre and want to try a sipping rum for their first time. But also for the seasoned rum drinker it can serve as a pleasant change if you're in the mood for a sweeter rum, that isn't spiced but still has a nice full aroma and color of an aged molasses rum. However, for some it may be a bit too sweet and maybe not too complex in aroma.
Altogether Botucal Reserva Exclusiva it's a nice dark ron with sweet taste and pleasant aroma, nice and easy to drink neat.
