Light and fruity on the nose, full of flavor with the first sip, and a long finish with a hint of sweetness left behind. Slightly over-proofed at 47% abv.

J adore les produits diplomatico, un goût fruité et noix de coco, un peu fort en bouche. Je ne suis pas un amateur de blanc mais il est bon.

Quite nice on the nose coconut and chocolate, very good in cocktails.

I read that this was replacing the Diplomatico Blanco, so I thought I'd try them both side by side with the hopes that this would be at least as good as that. It's close, but I slightly prefer the Blacno.

This is a tad less sweet than the Blanco and it's 47%abv rather than 40%. I read it was intended as a mixer. Not a bad business decision, as their Reserva is far better if you like straight rum. But I rate rums straight, and I slightly prefer the Blanco, so I'll give that the edge. Still, this is very good, and I believe this would make a great mixer.

Nejlépe chutná v kombinaci s bílou čokoládou, silnější, 47%, ovocná rumovější chuť

its punchy and sweet. Delicious neat.
Great on ice but whats really nice is enjoying the way that this rum plays with citrus.
I feel like the chocolatey finish does something great to a daiquiri which is really different without being over exuberant as some characterful white rums can.
I have it sitting next to the reserva and guess what? The planas gets the guernsey most times.

I have held off for months in trying this replacement for their Blanco. However, after reading enough of these reviews which mentioned notes of coconut, the 47% ABV, and it really being a gold rum aged for six years and then filtered to remove the color, I gave it a try at $29 US. I don't detect notes of coconut, but this one can indeed be sipped neat. Not many white rums can make this claim. It would also be a great mixer, allowing for rum flavors to come through without over powering the drink. I also have it rated as a good buy.

We tried this at the NYC Rum Fest, and found it surprisingly smooth for a white rum, so we bought a bottle at Astor Wines. It does have a stronger alcohol nose than others, due to the 47% ABV.

I've had this several times over the past few months and couldn't quite decide where this one fit in. I'm happy it's a great mixer and most enjoyable in this format but not a sipper. I think mixed properly its a delight as its not overly strong but doesn't lose its sweetness in the process.

Des notes d'orange malgré son gout assez fort en bouche. Un arrrire gout tres agréable

Posted almost 3 years ago by Terence from Malaysia with 56 ratings

Minty with peachy citrus aroma. Smells of coconut flesh with hint of sweetness from coconut water. Complement with buttery oak aroma.
Buttery mouth feel which provide a body to it. Coconut flesh flavour, nutty almond, hint of cedar wood but balance with good tartness.
Clean and medium length finishing. Grassy notes with alcohol minty-ness.

Aged for up to 6 years in American white oak and ex bourbon casks. Gravity fed charcoal filtration to remove the colour. Aromas of fresh coconut a little earthy. Taste very smooth and creamy with a hint of coconut water. Bottled at 47% abs am impressed.

Good Rum for cocktails, mojitos or piña colada if you want to stick to Venezuelan rums...

Nice flavor, but has a harsher aftertaste as compared to Reserva Exclusiva. Would still recommend for sipping.

Tasted it while at a short trip with Viking Line from Sweden to Åland when the Swedish importer was onboard and offered it.
In nose as well on the palate it’s lots of citrus, but you can also taste butter, mint and some toffee. The afterburn is quite short with soft spices.
It has a balanced sweetness, not nearly as sweet as the Reserva Exclusiva. So for me it’s an easy choice to choose this one before the DRE. I think it will fit well in cocktails, cause it will be noticed.

It starts a bit harsh, but mellows down soon. The aroma is woody and the taste fruity, but not overly sweet. Has a slight charcoal after taste and a warmth down the throat. Sips reasonably easy once the ice starts to melt and mixes even better. A very versatile bottle to have in stock.

It was not my type of rum. But maybe for other it can be.....

N- Shy and almost odorless at the beginning. Touch of nuttiness, fresh almond, walnut and kennels. Layer of rebel ethanol heat and whiff of nail polish remover with prickly wood restrain the rather fine aroma of cedar wood and scents of light cigar to come thru. (17/25)

P- Sweet cane, moist toffee cake with tart berries. Minimum oak influence making it taste still quite raw, but well mellow and harmless after long aging and the multiple filtration. May be too raw and insignificant on flavours but do like the firm body that comes with it. (18/25)

F- Short and clean, better deliver on dried white fruits sweetness, grassy fragrant with spirit heats linger. (16/25)

Balanced:- Pale but still quite rich and tasty with good body, only to be pull off by the scents of ethanol. (17/25)

Weighted Rate:- 68pt

Not being a white rum drinker, I was surprised at the richness of taste, approaching ambassador's better dark rums. Not for sipping, but quite nice in for instance a mojito.
