Unikátní chuť a vůně. Chuť vanilky a ovoce s uzasnym zakončením. Velký zážitek
Lightly sweet and fairly heavy bodied. Complex on the wood and dark chocolate. I get this for 55000 pesos locally in Chile (80 bucks or so US, not that I could get it in the USA). Amazing and spectacular for the price. I’ve been through three bottles. Considering buying a few upfront because they may run out eventually....
It is strong, has heavy body and cognac like taste. Nice sipper.
Diese Jahrgangsabfüllung toppt alle Diplomaticos einschliesslich des Ambassadors.Der Preis von 80-90 Euro in D für diesen komplexen geschmacklich wunderschönen Rum in einem hochwertigen Glas Decanter mit schöner Umverpackung ist gerdezu geschenkz verglichen mit anderen Herstellern
Der Rum spielt in der Süssrumliga nach meinem Empfinden ganz oben bei Centenario 30 oder Zacapa white und black Label mit.Absolut wunderschöne Aromen,langer Abgang und eine dezente optimale Süsse
Excellent in every way, aroma, taste finish. Great pairing for a Cigar.
In direct comparison with Ambassador, you can really feel the difference. Single Vintage 2004 has his own "character" - darker with wood tones, while Ambassador is more balanced "blend" :-) I just hope, I will have chance to direct compare with 2002 (or even with 2001).
I have a hard time comparing the Single Vintage 2002 with the new 2004, but perhaps the new one is slightly better, but they are both amazing rums.
Had all the things you wanted from a top class rom.
You can definitely smell the sherry finish on this one. Very smooth, none of the alcohol burn. Truly an awesome rum!
Nose: No nose. I'm really hunting for experiences here.
Taste: Sharp and intense on the tongue, which is fine, but it lacks complexity. Sudden arrival of sharp medicinal/ethanol tastes that just evaporates right away. Again I'm hunting here.
Finish: No engaging finish. Slightly woody aftertase with small notes of ginger. The finish is actually the most engaging of this rum.
Maybe it's just not my cup of tea. It doesn't pack enough of a punch for me, too light, not enganging, too bland, and very little complexity.
I bought the last available bottle. Very generous and tasty. A powerful development of their typical rum.
ve vůni vanilka a meloun, chuť nasládlá, karamel a sladké ovoce, závěr dlouhý, ovocný
This one is the greatest rum I ever tried taste and aroma.
This is a good rum but I guess each to his/her own. It’s nice but I found the after taste a little harsh with a slightly bitter edge. Not as smooth as others and not much character. 7 for me, no where near a 10.
This is the best rum I've grotten to drink so far. Perfection!
It is very well balanced rum, a better Botucal Reserva Exclusiva.
Less sweet hat RE. The bottles are limited to 1500 a year.
Smell: caramel, vanilla, subliminal dried fruit, oak.
Flavor: caramel, burned suggar, dried fruits, oak, pronounced spiciness, not harsh, not too sweet.
Sweetness: 2.5 / 5
Spice: 2.5 / 5
Fruits: 3.5 / 5
This one is not a sugar bomb, but still rather a sweet rum. Very woody with notes of sherry, chocolate, dark fruits and spices. Good one.
What a way to round off Christmas Day, sipping this outstanding, smooth, TASTY, rum.
I am a Diplomatico fan, and surely was not disapointed. Great, smooth and little sweet.
Had at rum tasting in barcelona - good sipper, sherry added something different but not raving about this one...
Had a chance to sample this rum recently and would definitely put it in my top 3. This rum has a lot going for it; super smooth, but not sacrificing in flavor. I got just the right amount of sweetness on the front end with a little bit of spice on the back. Definitely picked up dark chocolate and caramel notes with complimentary flavors from the bourbon oak and sherry barrels (both dry and sweet), and a little bit of spice on the finish.
It’s an oxymoron, but this rum is complex yet incredibly well balanced. There are a lot of flavors jumping out, but they all work together so well. If you’re a hardcore rum drinker and want the sweetness then you’ll get a taste of it, but you’re likely going to pick up a lot more flavor. If you aren’t a rum drinker then this one might change your mind. I could drink this one anytime, anywhere. Excellent rum! If you find a bottle of it, buy it!
Yes, this is a good rum with nice flavours and character. Sweet balance, dark chocolate and sherry coming to mind.
Another great great rum by Diplomatico! This rum is so good. Can't taste any failure in this one.
Loved this in the bottle, in the glass, in the nose, in the mouth, in the memory.....
Aroma is rich and full sherry fruit. Same taste follows with wood and dark chocolate at the back. Quite pronounced flavors. I have noticed a lot of unobtainable Venezuela rums showing up in US. Got this and Carupano Solera Centenaria within last month as a stocked item. Anyway I personally like it less than Zafra Master 30 or 21 but it worth keeping around. Different strokes for different folks. It goes into my nightcap rotation. Ohh and nice bottle and paid $80 US.
