Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
the first couple of times i tasted this rum i didnt like it at all, but it is groning on me, and i have totally falled in love with it, this one is way betyder than Batch #2
Diplomatico Distillery Collection No. 1 Batch Kettle Rum!
On the nose- Floral with vanilla and fruit.
First sip- A little sweeter than the Barbet edition which I personally prefer. Roasted caramel, cherry and oak. Still a bit of a bite on the finish. It's very brief though. I believe I like this one a tad more than the No. 2 Barbet but both are pretty solid.
This edition focused on the Batch Kettle Still process which was brought to diplos distillery in 1959. It is a semi continuous distillation system that was originally used in Canada to make whisky. Aged and finished in American white oak barrels. If you find one in the store you should grab one up as they only produced 5000 of these gems. Enjoy!
Na Zdrowie!! 🥃🤙😎
Enjoyed a glass of Diplomatico No. 1 batch Kettle Rum while vacationing in Brussels. Semi dark color. Nice bottle design with a pleasing old fashioned label. Very flavorful smell test, but so much more drier than Diplomatico Reserve Exclusiva. Extremely similar flavor profile to Reserva Exclusiva and much more burn due to no added sugar. Taste lingers a while afterwards when the burn has already dissipated. Definitely worth the 8 score.
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.
Even it is a 6 years old rum it it smooth and balanced, different than the older ones, finally.
A very light, but sweet, aroma... like vanilla and apples. Perfect mouth feel, not to oily, rolls over the whole tongue leading to a strong rum flavor with a hint of sweetness and a little heat. It leaves behind a toffee aftertaste with a little overripe banana that reminds me of a Jamaican funk, but not too funky. This is a really nice sipper.
Lækker nok start på distillery serien og glæder mig til at smage kommende varianter
Ok taste, some harch.
It’s a okay rum, nothing special but still in the top half of the scale
