Now this is some good stuff
Rum tasting in the Finnish Lakes District started with a back-to-back testing between a brand new Diplomatico Seleccion de Familia and the all time benchmark Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. Very similar tube shaped boxes protecting the bottles. Sturdy bottle with an identical but light brown label design. Identical color with the Reserva Exclusiva. Here similarities end. Seleccion de Familia is much more dry and heavy wine influence to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Smooth but dry ending. Strong nine, but nowhere close to a ten.
I like original diplomatico so I was expecting a lot from this beauty. And thankfully I was not dissapointed! It is not that sweet but supersmooth. On the nose you can smell caramel, vanilla, wood and sherry. In mouth flavours of caramel, sugar cane, tobacco, oak and sherry. Simply awesome.
Selvom der er mindre sukker i denne rom, er der stadig sød. Hvor den så får sin sødme fra er ikke til at vide.
Smager meget hen ad Reserva'en, men mere træ og dybde
Nice sugar and honey aroma. Taste is sweet and complex - sugar cane, plums, red fruit, caramel, vanilla and honey. Aftertaste is average long, woody and not so sweet like Reserva Exclusiva. Also the additional 3% of alcohol is helping. Price is a bit higher than Reserva Exclusiva but I prefer it more due to lower level of sugar and 43%.
Loved the complexity and the balance. Felt like a perfect digestif, or cigar accompaniment. But as the glass emptied, I found the sweetness more and more overbearing, to the point where it ruined it for me.
Would be fabulous in apple pie, or roast pork gravy, but just too sweet for me to drink neat
Incredible softness and richness on this one, the level of sugar is absolutely perfect & integrated with the blend and there is also good acidity and spice, but extremely fine there on the background.
Multi-layered and top QPR. Probably a 9.2 now.
Ha szereted a Diplomaticót akkor nem fog csalódás érni. A reservához hasonló karakter,bár kicsit alkoholosabb illetve nekem a lecsengése kevésbé izgalmas. De nagyszerű ital!
A great rum for tasting, not as sweet as its ceaper counterpart, the famed reserva exclusiva, but nto in any way worse. It's a great rum for sipping, I would not waste this in the form of a cocktail, personally I didn't even feel the need to water it down.
