Tasty, but not quite great
A very smooth and enjoyable rum that can be enjoyed on it's own or with your favorite mix. It's sweet but not overly so. It has hints of vanilla and toffee. I highly recommend.
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 ...
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
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.
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.
I like this soft and smooth dark rum in the mix. Not very complex or exciting in taste, but well balanced and not as over the top with caramel like many other brown rums. A pity that sugar has been added.
"Overall it is a sweet rum. There is a little spice on the palate and a tiny slither of oak. The finish has a little coffee and a touch of caramel. It is smooth and very easy to drink."
