if its Diplomatico it's good that's just a given. This rum is a stronger more robust rum, very little if any sweetness, you can stand a fork in it. Dark fruit and esters on the nose. After finish is the best part of the rum, a touch of bitterness and a bite of alcohol will let you know that you have partook. I liked the No2 best.

Diplomaticos from 2000-2002 are gone, so I tried this new special one. At first it hits you with a lot of alcohol in the nose, but also sweetness and various aromas. If you let it breathe for a few minutes, you discover a very neat rum.

New to rum so thought I’d try this. It was little bit smoother than the no2 but didn’t smell as nice . Taste is a bit much for me so didn’t enjoy it but that’s probably due to my inexperience with rum and only really liking sweeter rums at the moment. Maybe later I may be able to appreciate what the others taste that I currently can’t .

It's clearly a Diplomatico, stronger than RE and less sweet nose with same aromas. The taste is less sweet.
It's recognizeable, I'm not sure if it's better than RE. It's still not a natural rum. But if you like RE aromas and you don't like the sweetness.
You can go for this one.

Smell: caramel, vanilla, raisins, banana, wood
Taste: vanilla, banana, caramel, spice, raisins, wood/barrel (some earth), citrus, some bitterness

Sweetness: 2/5
Fruit: 2.5/5
Spice: 3/5
Mildness: 3/5
Value (50€): 2.5/5

Canadian government put 44.1° label over the 47° print. That is true, it is easy to drink, just a little alcohol burn.
Original fruity, a bit salty taste, which stays for a long while.
But, for the 90$ you can get more and better.
In side by side comparison with Appleton 8 I prefer Appleton.

It is good, but "There's not enough there there" to jump ahead of many others I have had at this price. Beautiful burnt caramel color with a very alcohol forward nose that frankly takes quite a while to dissipate. Labeled at 47%, I would guess it over 54% at first taste. It lingered and somewhat negated a lot of the note character on the tongue for at least 20 or 30 seconds. It gives way to a woody, subdued stone fruit that finished in a nice balance, but never really wows enough to offset the long powerful alcohol bite to start for me. Good? Yes. $80 GOOD? Not sure. After sitting on the table for 20 minutes the remainder of the glass becomes more balanced from beginning to end and I would say a 7.4 is a decent average rating. But as the price point neighbors some of the Foursquares I've been drinking lately, I long for a similar experience of a heavy nosed bottle with a payoff of more substantial notes past the burn. More There There.

A bit sharp at the beginning, but aftertaste is excellent!

If you like the typical taste of diplomático, this is a good way to try something a little different but maintaining what you already know and like. A good alternative
