Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Remarkably with almost without a strong scent it develops a round, sweet taste immediately. After some seconds it confirms the soft taste with a finish tasting like honey
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...
Venezula is famous for rums and Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is exception. I specially like its fruty taste that stand up while drining it on the rocks. It is a must try!!!
Recommended by a Venezuelan waiter at a local restuarant and available at local liquor stores (for under $40) this is probabably the best I’ll ever have.
Nice color and smell, taste pretty sweet. Really nice one that goes down your throath really smooth!
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.
If this wasn't considered top shelf, I'd probably enjoy it more! Its got a great bold taste. I often order this at steak houses as it pairs nicely with a great steak.
This rum has a good sweet taste of caramel and chocolat. It makes it not for everyone but I love it.
Very good sipping rum all kinds of flavors to find.
IMHO a really good rhum. Always enjoy this flavor. Probably not one of those sophisticated ones by anyway, Antonela d’Hollywood lunes rhum will like this one :)
But dear god this is just delicious. Sweet, right off the hop, perhaps too sweet for some. Unfortuneately, it races quickly to a short finish, dancing across some very tasty molasses and light caramel notes. Leaves you wanting a slower ride.
Not part of the rating: Absolutely superb bottling. The bottle fits PERFECTLY into its container. It is very satisfying.
Dejlig smagfuld sød rom, som er perfekt at sidde og sippe af.
This was my first Rum to taste, its really a good beginners way to Rum World,
Tastes like caramel
Really enjoy every drop
This is an excellent choose to have a nice talk during a cold night or with beach music around.
It is absolutely pleasant and orgasmical the moment it touches your tongue receptors. It's smooth, perfectly balanced and by my opinion the best rum in this price bracket.
And yes, you can drink it all night, no regrets and it won't ruin your budget (;
