Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Sweet on the nose. Pretty balanced without being overly sweet. It's nice but nothing special
Powerful rum, more sour tones than f.e. zacapa 23. Much stronger mouthfeeling, darker tones here than zacapa or Don Q gran Anejo. Still nice for me personally
Beautifully smooth rum, perfect for sipping over ice. (I keep mine in the freezer).
Almost as good as the reserve, but I like the reserva a little bit more
Was wondering how exclusiva would taste if only you could somehow remove the extra sweetness...
Now I know and I can confirm it's good.
Missing the complexity as well...
It still has an intense alcohol flavour. Probably it needs some time to settle down a bit. But in this price range it is reasonable.
This is a good rum. Great flavor, no after burn, smooth across the tongue. Great price for what this rum brings to the table. If you haven’t tried any of the brands yet, start with this one.
Sweet but not too much, strong alcohol sensation on the nose. Cheap.
Nice spicy caramel nose. Mouth has almost none of that initial alcohol bite, but to me has a negatively over spiced flavor. For drinking neat, it's my least favorite of all the Diplomatico offerings. However, that spiciness peeks through the Coke flavor for a respectable Rum and Coke. Now that statement needs some clarification. I've been lucky enough to have had three bottles of Roble Viejo Ultra Añejo Rum delivered to me by Family traveling from Venezuela. This ROBLEY offering has a wonderful spicy woody caramel flavor profile that busts through the Coke flavor for an unbelievably exceptional Rum and Coke. This Diplomatico offering has the exact flavor profile, but to a lessor strength. With the Diplomatico Mantauno this flavor profile is precieved to break through by varying amounts in different seatings, where with the Roble there's never a question of it busting through. This still makes this Diplomatico offering my go to for Rum and Coke since the Roble Viejo Ultra Añejo Rum is only available at a duty free shop in the Venezuelan Airport.
As a sipping Rum I would have rated this Diplomatico offering lower, but gave it the 9 for it's value in a Rum and Coke
Diplomatico Mantuano is a new item in the US. It makes a decent rum-and-coke drink for you, but this rum is too harsh for neat sipping experience. Go straight to the Reserva Exclusiva and be blown away with how good that rum really is.
Not as good as the reserva exclusiva, but for its price its a steal.
This is simply a great rum and has a smooth richness to it, but there are many alternatives that already nail this classification that are cheaper. Sure this one certainly has a smooth finish to it which gives that air of refinement to it, which may make the difference for some.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Ostřejší lihovost, kořenitost, nádech pomeranče a meruňek, pampeliškový med. Alkohol je ještě trochu nevycválaný. Čokoláda, včelí plástve, krémovost. (82 b)
Chuť: Sladění vůně a chutě je dobré. Opět trochu ruší vyčnívající lihovost. Koření, nasládlost, ovocnost (pomerančová marmeláda). Propolis, skořice, v dozvuku hřejivý. (82 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnávali jsme s kamarádem na dalším degustačním večeru v českolipském Baru/Kavárně Kocour. Hlavní jádro ochutnávky tvořily čtyři Plantationy, k tomu novinka od Diplomática - Mantuano, pak jsme zkusili El Ron Prohibido Habanero a na úplný závěr pak pouťovou atrakci RedRum. Mantuano je takový základní rum, nic extra zajímavého, navíc působí ještě dost nevyzrále.

It was ok. Not my favorite from this distillery. The best part was that it wasnt sweet.
Too sweet in the nose, surprisingly sharp in the mouth, doesn't have a good finish and leaves your mouth just dry. Won't ever buy a bottle, doesn't worth the money.
This rum was my first step into the world of quality rums. And I have to say I couldn't choose a better starting rum. This rum is not trying too hard to impress or be better than it is. It's just a honest rum. The taste is a little bit "spicey" you could say, and also decently sweet. It's certainly not as sweet as the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, and I prefer it this way. The Reserva is way too sweet for me - and I like sweet rums.
I certainly recommend this rum. It's worth the money in my opinion. If you won't expect much, you will be surprised.
Enjoying the first pour now. Little hot but wonderful nose and flavors.
Rich nose, initial taste not sweet but brown sugar, quickly becomes bitter but mellows to long finish.
Tento rum ma neohuril a je podstatne slabší ako 12YO. Mierna nasladlost, priaznivá cena,no príde mi nedotiahnuty a nezaujímavý. Zložky nie sú vybalancovane
Όπως - πολύ σωστά - είπε ένας φίλος πρόκειται για ένα ρούμι όπως το diplomatico Res. Excl. χωρίς ιδιαίτερη γλύκα . Εγώ προσωπικά το προτιμώ από την Res. Excl. , διότι μου αρέσουν τα λιγότερο γλυκά ..... παρόλα αυτά δε μπορώ να το βαθμολογήσω πάνω από 8 . 8,5 για μένα
Ένα ρούμι που αξίζει τα λεφτά του και τη φήμη του !!!!
Vrij scherpe geur door de alcohol (spiritus).
Smaak is ook aan de scherpe kant.
De los mejores rones de Venezuela, excelente para mezlar, muy fuerte para tomarlo puro. Me quedo con el gran reserva.
