Liquor store had it rated 95, but I found it to be a little plain tasting on the rocks. Definitely not bad, but as complex as others of similar age

Sweet on the nose. Pretty balanced without being overly sweet. It's nice but nothing special

Powerful rum, more sour tones than f.e. zacapa 23. Much stronger mouthfeeling, darker tones here than zacapa or Don Q gran Anejo. Sweet, cane-like. Still nice for me personally.

Beautifully smooth rum, perfect for sipping over ice. (I keep mine in the freezer).

Almost as good as the reserve, but I like the reserva a little bit more

Very interesting.
Was wondering how exclusiva would taste if only you could somehow remove the extra sweetness...
Now I know and I can confirm it's good.
Missing the complexity as well...
Overall decent.

It still has an intense alcohol flavour. Probably it needs some time to settle down a bit. But in this price range it is reasonable.

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.

Sweet but not too much, strong alcohol sensation on the nose. Cheap.

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

Diplomatico Mantuano is a new item in the US. It makes a decent rum-and-coke drink for you, but this rum is too harsh for neat sipping experience. Go straight to the Reserva Exclusiva and be blown away with how good that rum really is.

Not as good as the reserva exclusiva, but for its price its a steal.

This is simply a great rum and has a smooth richness to it, but there are many alternatives that already nail this classification that are cheaper. Sure this one certainly has a smooth finish to it which gives that air of refinement to it, which may make the difference for some.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Venezuela
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)
Body: 82/100
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.

Just open the bottle and... wow... nice surprise...I was not expecting such nice full taste... not sharp... will go for one more...

At this level we’re getting past the endless sea of mixers into something a little more complex. It starts of sweet, then moves into a spicy flavor with a little burn in the mouth. Doesn’t burn the throat like a cheap rum can, and reminds me of what a sweet cigar taste like. And not the cheap gas station brands, but something from Central America with a natural leaf wrap. Has a sweet aroma which makes me think of a vanilla rice pudding or a good moist bread pudding. This is my first foray into the Diplomatico line and it definitely won’t be my last. I try everything straight in a glenncairn and add just a drop of bottled water after several tastings to open it up. I also do the Kentucky chew to get the full flavor. I don’t think I’d waste this by putting it in a cocktail, I’ll use a cheaper rum that’s less complex. So far this is is a top 5 for me, I’ve only reviewed 14 rums since joining, but have had many over my lifetime. I will only review what I’ve recently had and right at the time of tasting.

I like it, smooth, nice tones, seems like there is some sort of spice but really nice here!

Dobrý rum, ale na samotné popíjení mi nechutnal. Do drinků ideální.

Posted about 1 month ago by bigsizzy from United States with 3 ratings

Smooth.. thick.. I liked it. I got a.. slight banana? I’m new to liquor tasting but this is one of my top 5 aged rums. Worth trying.

I don’t have a wide collection of expensive rums. Mainly around 20€. But for this price this is for me one of the best to buy and available at a lot of liquor stores.

I have given it away as a present a couple of times to people who usually drink Bacardi or similar and they really liked it.

I though this would be just Another sweet Diplomatico, but it's not. Ok it's still sweet but not overly sweet. This one has some more darker tones to it, chocolate, oak, molasses and some spicy ess. Neat sipper.

Posted about 1 month ago by MrLargo from Sweden with 12 ratings

Nothing stands out in this rum but it's pleasant, sweet vanilla and a blend that comes together nicely at a fair pricing. Good value for the money.
