Buon rum commerciale venezuelano, dolce, vanigliato. Tra i 12 anni uno dei migliori, con un finale leggero ma abbastanza presente.
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.
Sometimes I think this one is a little too sweet, but depending on your day's form you can appreciate the complex aroma after the sweetness is gone. A little fruity, chocolaty, caramel. This one should be know as the standard rum.
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!
Sehr angenehm in der Nase und auf der Zunge. Deswegen ist er sehr "süffig" und perfekt für den Alltag. Ihm fehlt aber das gewisse etwas.
Jag vet inte alls om det stämmer men jag upplever Botucal reserva exclusiva en aning tråkigare och blaskigare än Diplomatico trots att det är samma rom.
Not my cup of rum, I don't like the chocolate taste in my drinks, for the rest it is OK....
More abv in nose at start then true Diplomatico. More aggresive abvish first sip. Less body then real Diplomatico and less flavor. Still develops nice vanilla but I prefer true Dippomatico reserva exclusiva...
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...
I would like to expect more for this price but it's not a bad rum.
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.
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.
