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.
My first rum which I thought I have been missing a lot so far...I have seen cocktail suggestions for this but that would be a waste. This is a great sipping wine. Sweet but definitely not off-putting. Sugar cane hits you and you get that natural, slightly but rightly aged sipping rum feeling. I definitely recommend this for beginners.
Diplomatico is a great introductory rum tuned to the American palate. When someone's only rum experiences are with Captain Morgan and Bacardi, this is a great intro to some of the flavors rum can bring. The more experience I get with the spirit the less I enjoy the overwhelming sweetness Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva brings, but it will always have a place close to my heart for opening the door to rum for me.
Smooth at first, with flavors of smoke, vanilla, a little dark chocolate, and some fruitiness with some coffee notes near the end.
This was my first foray into sipping rum and it did not disappoint.
I'll always have a fifth of Diplomatico in my liquor cabinet. I enjoy it neat in a lowball or snifter.
Easily the best rum I have tasted. Being a rum newbie this is by far the bestest(!) rum of them all. Price and quality match awesomely. :-)
It's very good but a bit strong in taste. I would say that Diplomatico Mantuano is a little bit better because it's more delicate and soft. Reserva Exclusiva is good but El Dorado 12 is the best one for me for now.
I am new to Rum, I found Bacoo 12 year which I have been drinking wanted to try something rated a little higher so bought this. I like this a lot but doing a side by side with the Bacoo - I will stick with that, This has nice color, caramel smell and is smooth. It has a lot of after taste so not as clean as my other favorite. The after taste is strong molasses. Good rum but could be better. I will keep trying new rums until I find that I love better than Bacoo.
This was the first sipping rum I ever had. I was given it as a birthday present from a teetotaller friend who knew I was a whisky hound and mistakenly thought this was whisky. I calmed him down by informing him that I was found of rum and coke and immediately tried it as such. on my first sip I could the the coke was hiding something so after finishing the R&C I poured a nip and discovered just how much I was missing out on in the rum world. best enjoyed with a nice Connecticut leaf wrapped cigar
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. ."
"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"
