Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a good Ron! Really good best taste with Cola (Pepsi Max better than Cola Zero - more sweet). Perceptible dark anejo flavor with plums or maybe something like a old barrel or old ship. I think this is great rum for slow lazy days, cold night, autumn. Bottle colors like an autumn, brown and orange. I love sweet, dark, anejo rons...This is good proposition for me - every day internet pirate :D
Good as a step down from the exclusiva reserva (or as an anejo replacement). Nice light and smooth.
Best I've had for a great price ff
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 ...
I really enjoy this rum. I look forward to trying others from this distiller. As always, I prefer my rum over ice with a healthy splash of Coke.
Au nez dominé par le chêne. En bouche, s'ouvre sur des saveurs agréables de vanille, fruits secs et boisés. Ressemble au réserva de la même marque.
Heavy on the nose with caramel and molasses and a light fruitiness behind it. The first sip has a thin mouth feel, but a lot of flavor. It leads with a light sweetness followed by rum with a medium finish that leaves behind the taste of a honey-crisp apple with a little heat. Not as sweet as the Exclusiva, but a tasty flavor. A decent sipper, but at the price point would feature well in a premium cocktail.
Doux et sucré. Se boit facilement. Bon choix passe-partout !
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.
This pours a rich mahogany colour and has a wonderful nose. Diplomatico rums have always suited my taste, so I was hesitant when they replaced the Reserva with Mantuano. The Reserva made a better rum and coke but the Mantuano is a it smoother making a better sipper. Not as sweet as DER but just as good.
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
Beautifully smooth rum, perfect for sipping over ice. (I keep mine in the freezer).
Very Similar to the now discontinued Reserva, probably some kind of rebranding based on the also discontinued Anejo. both were removed from the Diplomatico website. first notes after getting the new Mantuano bottle for 35% less the price i used to pay for the Reserva was that it lost some of it's syrupy consistency. Color is still dark and beautiful and aromas strike the nose in a very similar manner. it is very close almost similar in taste although the more itchy biting alcoholic hint in the finish discloses the fact it is younger on overall, probably a compromise of the two discontinued products into a new blend. which might be good for selling their Anejo stocks. Reserva got 9 from me. Mantuano is getting 8 since still it competes well with many other Rums that are ranked at 7 and surely deserves more respect. the whole Diplomatico range is beautifully balanced on the sweet medicinal side and i really enjoy them much more than some more famous "great" Rums. for 50% price i paid for my bottles compared to the still available Reserva the drop in mautration is not reflected by the price. lets just hope it stays in such price in the future.
Very good. Nice. Spicy. Solid. Bong. Tresbien. Si. Senor
It's one of the first rum's I tried that was above €20 and it tasted great with coke. It's strong but after every sip you want more.
Rum na kazdodenne pitie. Nie je taky sladky a chut je velmi vyvazena.
good enough for dry and not oversweet taste, good enough for sipping, gives pleasure
I like this soft and smooth dark rum in the mix. Not very complex or exciting of taste.
I like Reserva Exclusiva, but Mantuano proved to be a good option.
The distillate has quality, and has less sugar than Reserva Exclusiva.
Simple flavor, but cheap for the quality it has.
Rhum molto vellutato la vaniglia domina in maniera importante ma fine,la melassa c'è ma non è nauseante, rimane corto al palato ma il finale non intensissimo è comunque presente nei sapori di legno in botti di Bourbon. Un finale più lungo e intenso gli avrebbe garantito un posto importante nel paradiso dei Rhum
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.
I drink most of my sippers on ice, like I did with this. A bit harsh, but I found a back end sweet smoothness as well
But still good enough for positive rating. Next time I would of course pick Reserva Exclusiva, but if you care about the price, this is a right choice.
