Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva rum is distilled from molassis in copper pot stills and then aged in small oak casks for on average 12 years before being bottled.
Produced in Venezuela, which has a rich rum history dating to 1896, the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva distillery is located on the northern slopes of the Andes mountains.
Recommendable to most
I finally got a bottle of this and compared it side by side to Kaniche Perfeccion and El Dorado 12.
I'd describe the Diplomatico as a sweet and baking spice sipper (cinnamon and nutmeg) Smooth and lightly fruity. The Perfeccion reminds me of sweet Juicy Fruit Gum and/or bubblegum. The El Dorado is drier with dark sugar and more pronounced wood and oak and perhaps not as smooth as the other two. Perhaps an older El Dorado would be more appropriate to compare.
Another favorite sipper of mine is the Kaniche XO. Compared to Kainiche Pefeccion I get the same Juicy Fruit and bubblegum with a little more spice.
Overall I list the Diplomatico a 8-9. A great sipper if you don't mind the added sugars. If i had to buy one of these 4 mentioned, I would do Kaniche XO partially based on the price. The next bottle to grab will be Zacapa 23.
Podľa mňa tento rum je kvalitný,jemný,chutný ale treba ho vychladiť trošku,tak na 14 stupňov.Najprv som to pil pri izbovej teplote ale tak nebol som vôbec ohromený z neho.Dal som aj najprv iba 6 bodov kvôli tomu ale teraz som zmenil názor.Dám 8 lebo fakt mi chutí.Taký má byť dobrý rum.
Szerintem ez a rum ízletes és finom de kicsit le kell hűteni,úgy 14 fokra.Először szobahőmérsékleten próbâltam de úgy nem ízlett.Ezért is kapott tőlem először csak 6 pontot de most megváltozott a véleményem.8 pontot adok mert tényleg nagyon finom.Ilyennek kell lennie a jó rumnak.
NO ADDED SUGAR OR FLAVOURINGS:Maybe
Nose: ginger, cinnamon, vanilla
Palate: Chocolate, tropical fruit
Finish: vanilla, Chocolate, ice cream
This is some good rum. I do like the flavor and the aroma is amazing. Would I make this my go to rum possibly. But I do highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it.
Very sweet, yet quite easy to drink, if you don't mind sweet, almost syrupy taste. Strong taste of nuts. Not very complex compared to premium rums.
"The nose is dominated by notes of caramel, toffee and crème. On the back end of the aromas, I can detect a hint of smoke and pineapple"

"The palate evokes chocolate sauce and the sweet toffee, fudge and tropical fruit flavours from the nose"
Smells sweet. It is fruity, oranges, grapes and raisins with scents of chocolate and a sweet almost syrupy.
"The tasting notes on the site are very accurate vanilla, fudge/toffee sauce are noticeable as are notes of vanilla and a finish which is slightly bitter like cocoa which leaves a hit of oakiness on the taste buds. The finish is pretty short. ."
