This rum is incredibly smooth...it has been my favorite ever since I had my first sip of it. Slight caramel taste and vanilla...

Although I also drank Seleccion de Familia, which has a better rating, I stay with this classic. Less alcoholic, more aromatic and less spicy. Seleccion de Familia would be a 9...

A true sipper. Adequate and not overly spiced nose and a delicate tingle on the tongue and ridiculously smooth going down. My first review, and I could not be anything other than the best, I’ve had.

My first foray into more premium rums and I was blown away. Beautifully sweet but not overpowering, smooth and perfect for sipping.

On a recent holiday to Keffalonia I spied a bottle behind the bar and asked for a glass (a Greek single is like a UK triple 👌) the owner was stunned I knew it and went on to tell me all the awards it's won and that UK guests don't know what it is... I drank the whole bottle that week and started the next one reminding me how easy it is to drink. What's more, at the price point it is exceptional value and easily matches or outstrips more expensive rums I've had.

Can I give this a 10+? Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is, simply put, just plain amazing. Rich and while very sweet (caramel and brown-sugar, some butter), it's not without some oak character to give it a slightly smoky bite, too, so it's a well-rounded rum - you can't go wrong with this. Straight-up or maybe on a little ice ( one cube only, maximum! ) but just way too good to waste on mix. Simply a must-have for any rum aficionado.

After tasting over 30 rums, this one still remains my favourite.

I like a very soft taste and this one does just that.

Such a complexity and brilliance...Oh Lord! If a Little Bit less sweet, I would build it a Tempel. But still the best Rum for this price. Eating 5 Star Rums high price rums for breakfest. Go Diplomatico, Go!
