Tasty, but not quite great
This is another knockout from diplomatico, the flavour is subtle tones of caramel with no afterburn. I still prefer reserva exclusiva but remember this replaced diplomatico reserva which is much improved and a delight to drink on the rocks ...
The smoothness makes this rum very drinkable. The taste of alcohol is very single. The taste of vanilla is prominent and makes this a sweet rum.
Sweet dry fruits aroma- almost well aged twany port. Not how it tastes though..... starts sweet, dried fruits (dates, raisins) and caramel then moves to a woody (oak) caramel, slight cocoa and very slight spices at the end. Flavour fills your sense but does not last long which is disappointing. I like it but it’s not fantastic.
В аромате - карамель, сухофрукты и дерево. Аромат насыщенный, но, в то же время, мягкий. Вкус приятный, с доминирующей карамелью, более резкий, чем Reserva Exclusiva, спиртуозность сильнее. Послевкусие, к сожалению, короткое и жестковатое, но, в целом, приятное. Хороший ром без затей.
Aroma: caramel, dried fruits and oak - rich and smooth. Taste is nice, caramel dominates, but it's more rough than Reserva Exclusiva - spirit bitterness is stronger. Aftertaste is, unfortunately, short and harsh, but still nice overall. A good simple rum.
The little brother of the Botucal Reserva is less sweet and exudes a nice aroma in the glass.
Not bad, but not good enough for me. Would prefer the older brother Reserva Exclusiva.
But if Reserva Exclusiva is too sweet for you, you should try the Mantuano. He has also a bitter touch.
Smell: vanilla, burned sugar, fermented fruits, dried fruits, wood
Taste: some caramel, vanilla, intensifying, wood and earth, spice.
Bitterness in the aftertaste, after that fruity aroma.
