You can really tell this is an aged rum by the different flavors that come out over the finish. The nose starts almost like a sweet wine, but a sip proves not as thick as expected. Taste starts a little too spicy for my preference, but turns sweet and nice about half way though the finish. I don't like it enough to buy a bottle, but I certainly wouldn't turn down a double once and a while just for the unique flavoring.
Diplomatico single vintage rums are one of my all time favorites. I drank the 2000, 2001, and 2002 side by side, and I really struggled to tell them apart.
Has an amazing smell of rich butter toffee, caramel, and butterscotch, with a light sherry taste that isn't strong enough to detract from the rum. Taste is an amazing follow up to the nose. Strong at 43%abv, but so good the added strength is perfect. Another amazing rum from Diplomatico.
So cloose to excellence it can be and only bitten by its own brother Ambassador and some few other products. The whole Diplomatico range I really love and recommend as the base sipping dark Rum.
Great rum with tastes of fruit, wood, caramel and also coffee.
Smooth long lasting taste.
Add some ice to enrich the flavours.
For the first time, I sippted I felt woody notes. After that I felt frutty notes, and also some intense tabaco and coffee flavours. Good choice.
My first foray into the Diplomatico range and must say interesting but a very welcome to have a single vintage which I have never come across within my short rum journey.
Dark Amber/reddish in colour. Very nice aroma, complex am getting notes of burned sugar, some tobacco, maybe dried fruits.
This tastes silky smooth, mouth enveloping, sweet but balanced with the other flavours of spice. Long sweet, rich dry finish with a spicy tingling.
Perfect after dinner drink.
I've tasted multiple series. The 2007, 2005, 2002 and the 2000. But the 2001 is in my opinion the best I've tasted.
"It leads into a spicy mid palate containing quite a lot of complexity. Again the oak spice is there though it is slightly bitter, there are hints of raisin, all spice and an almost Christmas pudding like note, zesty orange and cinnamon."
