Tried the Botucal Mantuano in Caracas last year and it makes a decent rum-and-coke drink for you, but this rum is too harsh for neat sipping experience. Go straight to the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva and be blown away with how good that rum really is.

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.

Comparing to Diplomatico 12 years, it is not even close to this taste. Maybe good for drinks, but not for shots.

One of the rums that I always have in my home. Great for nipping on a regular evening

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.
Nice burn.
Bitterness in the aftertaste, after that fruity aroma.

Sweetness: 2/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Fruit: 2.5/5
Mildness: 3.5/5
