Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
My review for this is the same as my review for El Dorado 8.
Pay the extra for Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva if you want a sipping rum.
Get this if you want DIplomatico with coke etc..
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, очень 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 harsh than Reserva Exclusiva - spirit bitterness is stronger. Aftertaste is, unfortunately, very short and harsh, but 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.
Da ich bisher nur den Reserva Exclusiva kannte, hatte ich nicht gedacht, dass der Mantuano nur ansatzweise an den „großen Bruder“ herankommen könnte. Natürlich nicht so intensiv im Aroma, aber ein schöner Rum.
I tried this rum in Germany where the Diplomatico is called Botucal. Here you can find this rum for cheap and it tastes great. It seems like a slightly less refined version of the Reserva Exclusiva, with the same sweetness and taste. I highly recommend it if you want a good rum for a cheaper price or you don't find others. Goes well with chocolate
This is a very good rum. Great flavor, no burn, smooth across the tongue. Great price for what this rum brings to the table. If you haven’t had Diplomatico before, try this one.
I am really impressed bough it for 20€, fragrance very small, nothing special, sharper then reserva Exclusiva but for that price very drinkable
Nose sweeter than taste, well done. Very spicy with roasted nuts and aroma of full-bodied wine. Further, dark, mature fruits and berries. Cacao and vanilla, short finish.
