Tasty, but not quite great
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.
N- Soft dried fruits with some rock candy and burnt barks. Candle wax added layer of weighty oiliness to it, as well whiff of air dried fish notes which is quite nice. (18/25)
P- Mellow, more towards light than medium body, which make it a wee watery. Scents of sweet raisin and other dried fruits, perhaps apricot, with coal notes undertone, narrow and muted. (16/25)
F- Medium, sticky sugar coated sour fruits that stays. Sour plum tartness, raisin chocolate, dose of sweet spice on the retro-hale. (18/25)
Balanced- Plenty of sweetness carry by the light body, restrained and lacking sensation. (17/25)
Weighted Rate:- 69pt
in taste you feel the tones of older brother Diplomatico RE. but its not as smooth, complex and perfect as RE. Its a nice rum similar to el dorado 12. The only problem is, that if know RE, then this is just a 2nd class for you.
A scaled down version of the reserva exclusiva, pleasing, but again not that pleasing. Nice and sweet, but by far not in the category that Diplomático is known for. Quite good for an everyday mixing or with soda rum. Will buy it as a standard stand-by.
"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."
