Tasty, but not quite great
Very solid rum enjoyable even for starters, not very harsh, sweet, vanilla and fruit taste, but not very distinct, which is probably a pity. Still not bad, and has in my opinion very nice bottle.
This is a tasty rum in the line of the Havana club flavour profile with quite a bit of toffee caramel. I dont get the vanilla or oakyness a few others have mentioned online. It does say its a rum aged up to 8 years, I would say that it is mostly around 2-4 years. If you took the Havana Club 7 year and cut this with some younger Rums this would be close. Nice drop but Id take the Havana first especially with the price difference. Quite unlike the Anjeo which has more vanilla & oak and more a Bajan rum
Pro mě nejméně kvalitní Diplomatico(kromě bílých)... je z něj dost cítit alkohol a je tam nějaká divná pachuť skoro jako u Don Papa. Rozhodně je lepší si připlatit za Reservu.
Just tried this for the first time after reading lots of differing views, and finding a bottle. (£31).
My first impressions are very mixed. I thought this would be a lesser version of Exclusiva, but I was not prepared for the outcome.
It bears no resemblance to its "big brother", other than the bottle it comes in.
Having said that, it has a good colour,its very smooth on the tongue, no real discernible burn, more of a warming sensation, and a pleasant aroma of mixed fruit, but only mildly.
I read that " its a replacement for DRE, I hope that's not to be taken literally.
I would probably buy another bottle to dip into now and again, but I can honestly say that as smooth and easy to drink as it is, it will not "replace" DRE in my cabinet.
"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."
