Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Starts with sweet taste, ends dry, feeling oak wood, spicy, bit plum. Maybe to mix within some drinks...
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
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.
Provad mot Reserva Exclusiva. Spritigare, inte lika fyllig och söt i jämförelse. Ändå ok.
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)

Langt under sin storebrors standard. Billig og kan godt drikkes, men det er også det.
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.
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.
I have to collect something not to get crazy, so I think, why not Rum?
Smell and taste similar to the Reserva Exclusiva, just much less intense.
Dryer too, made for great coktails not to drink alone.
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
Helt ok, lite för torr och mindre söt än reserva exclusiva vilket inte är någon nackdel.
Reserva asi lepší, ale i tak nezklamalo. Silnější chuť alkoholu zbytečně potlačuje samotnou chuť rumu.
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.
NOT the rum I expected. Will only ude the for drinks.
There is nothing special about this rum - not to sweet, not to alcoholic.
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.
En lidt anden smag Diplomatico Reserva Exslusiva, bryder mig ikke specielt meget om den. Tror den kunne passe godt til drinks
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 ...
au nez il promet de bonne sensation, mais en bouche il est un peu trop sec a mon gout, trop sur l'alcool... et n'a pas de longueur en bouche.
finalement je préfère son grand frère "reserva exclusiva".
I like this soft and smooth dark rum in the mix. Not very complex or exciting of taste.
