Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 2. Barbet Rum !
On the nose- floral notes with vanilla, oak, toffee and bourbon.
First sip- a welcomed mellow burn right off the bat with rich dark flavors such as smoke, oak, tobacco and dark chocolate.
The finish has a sharp burn that only lasts for a moment or two but not at all over powering. Really reminds me a lot of a sweet bourbon.
When diplo made this rum it was a shot at all the sweet haters. They were going for much more of an unadulterated rum taste with less added sugar/color. Not the best rum I've ever had but not mad I made the purchase. Made from a continuous column copper still and aged in American oak barrels.
Na Zdrowie 😎🥃🤙
More complex, sweeter and smoother than number 2. Agree that it could’ve been aged longer, but still a very good rum
Hey Diplomatico, put it back into the system. Let it stand for extra decade and let this wonderful taste to grow up ).
Pretty exotic, fruty and organically dry at the same glass.
But, the cons:
-1 alien alcohol on the nose;
-1 too subtle notes; short after taste;
Not sure whether I need consume episodes 1 and 3 of this serial or see something more classic.
Edit: don't let it stand and breathe, drink ASAP ). Aroma is the best at 47°.
Incrementing the score.
Really good, totally different taste to compare with No1.
A mix between No1 and No3, between bitterness and sourness, this is probably the best balanced of the bunch. Otherwise tropical fruit nose and flavor.
Lagom sötma fruktig o mjuk och len i smaken. Vacker färg
nicely warming with fruit, raisin, vanilla and coconut tones
sweeter and smoother and more complex than No.1
Medium dark, smooth, slightly fruity, slightly burnt
Tasted nos. 1 and 2 side by side--this one was better. It still isn't a great rum, however.
N- Now with Barbet Still patent from France. Grilled honeydew melon, charred brown sugar and chocolate overlay with orange peels, also the raisin, banana and white fruits. Well lifted with zestier nuance, nice resin oak develop overtimes, cedar, tobacco and finely sweet. (87/21)
P- Ya, this works, waxy white fruits with polished oak phenol, balanced with full mouthfeel that comes with subtle tropical fruits underlay. Adore the drifting spiciness in this one. (89/22)
F- Medium long, dry and clean with delicate wood lasted the distances. (88/22)
Weighted Rate- 87pt

Nice tasting rum. It was nice to try both batch 1 and 2 side by side. Considering it was the exact same batch of rum only difference was the way it was distilled. My personal opinion was this version was much more refined and had the best of the two finishes, however my son felt the exact opposite about the 1 over the 2 batch. Good mans rum, no additives or back sweetening. Good rum and unique.
Nice vanilla sweet nose. Abvish sharp smokey vanilla oaky body. Lng snooth vanilla snokey sweetish loooong end. Less sweet the Diplomatico Reserva and more taste of alcohol...
I am still in the sweet rum range, and this one took some getting uden to, but i find some very interesting taste notes in this rum.
The first time wasn’t that good. Tasted mostly like liquor. The second time was a lot better. A lot of sweetness and the burning sensation down the throat was just right
Purchased a sample from Master of Malt.
Fruity and oaky, treacle, it's syuppy and warning with a touch of spice. Wonderful sipping rum but a tad pricey at £60.
Tried a glass of Diplomatico No. 2 Barbet Rum while vacationing in Brussels. Semi dark color. Robust bottle design with a sturdy box plus a nice old fashioned label. Very strong alcohol straight to the nose and considerably drier than Diplomatico Reserve Exclusiva. Rather similar flavor profile to No. 1 batch Kettle Rum but more burn due to no added sugar. Taste lingers a while afterwards when the burn has already dissipated.
Apart from the new Diplomatico 1, Diplomatico 2 brings nothing special... a semi-sweet, smooth rum as many others.
This starts with a lightly sweet aroma of crisp apple with a hint of caramel and peat. Sipped neat, it fills the mouth with smokey flavor that gives hints of cocoa but very little sweetness. Just a little heat in the back of the throat, this sipper is very smooth for its 47% ABV.
Hier will Diplomatico auch noch auf den Zug aufspringen,Flasche und Verpackung sind schön gemacht auch die Flaschennummerierung wie man sie von wirklich hochwertigen Flaschen kennt.
Aber der Inhalt geht für diesen Preis gar nicht,eine langweiliger Rum ohne Ausdruckskraft oder Aromaerlebnis. Da schenke ich mir dann lieber denn halb so teuren Reserva Exclusiva ein oder legen ein paar Euro drauf und geniesse den ganz hervorragenden Single Vintage.
Die Distillery Collection Nr 1 ist übrigends genauso langweilig und dieser Meinung waren alle Teilnehmer unseres Rumabends
Nummer 2 i serien Er ikke helt så god som 1eren i min optik. Men stadig helt ok og fortsættelse følger forhåbentligt.
Ikke helt i top. En Diplomatico der ikke er sødet men som har lidt i sig. Flad eftersmag.
God rom, dog er collection no. 1 bedre, efter min smag.
Smag af egetræ, citrus og tørret frugt.
