I tend not to spend more than $40,- on a bottle of rum and in that price range it definately earned its place in my top 10... Next to the Appleton Estate's and El Dorado's

Very nice avec, but I wouldn't place it near the top choices. It's fairly sweet and rich in both nose and palate. Vanilla tones, fuits, bitter orange and all around a classic rum.

This rum contains no less than 41g/L of added sugar and that is too much sugar for my taste. It would be much better if this rum could have been left to be just pure rum.

this is so additive-laden (40gms + per liter of added sugar, vanilla, etc) and artificial that I wouldn't recommend it even for a novice (which most of the reviewers here seem to be). ok as an after dinner liqueur maybe. But then there are lots of those.

It's sweet and slightly pleasant, but this is not a rum but a liqueur. There is lots off added sugar and it also has a strong taste of vanilla, no doubt added.

It was hard to believe that a rum was so cheap for some to be one of the ten best rum in the world. The perfect demonstration that the price is not synonymous with perfection. It is perfectly balanced rum and butterscotch flavor ( sweet as candy) is pleasant . It will be perfect with dessert (crème brûlée...)

Is good but is far too simple...
Just some fruits, some little spice, too sweet (probably a lot of added sugar).
It's made to please everyone's taste...
Don't chose it if you want to find a true rum.

This rum blew me away! I can't believe it's only $32.49 (Total Wines & More 2020). Toffee, cacao, vanilla, gingerbread, oak, molasses, wow! Smooth as silk too; don't even bother mixing it. I prefer this over many others that cost far more.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Venezuela
Aroma: Tradiční kůže, lesní med, dřevo a při hlubším pátrání ve sklence až plástve, lehce i propolis. (86 b)
Chuť: Mísí se zde krásná uhlazenost a jemnost v tom nejlepším slova smyslu s jemnou štiplavostí, vyzrálostí dřeva a medovou sladkostí.
Když budu hodně přísný, tak trochu dřevitá dochuť celkový dojem maličko ruší, ale nic významného. (88 b)
Body: 87
Shrnutí: Hlavně v chuti si mě získal, hodně sympatický reprezentant Venezuely.

I imagine there are genuinely worse "rums" out there, but I've yet to have them, hence the generous "2". First sip of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva was like drinking a sugar syrup and it just went downhill from there. The flavor is cloying and all off, would consider this a liqueur and not a real rum. I can't even drink it with a mixer, and it has been relegated to filling space in my liquor cabinet until I can foist it on someone who only thinks they like drinking rum. For those who are looking for good Venezuelan rums, I'd suggest Santa Teresa or Pampero. Run away from this one.

Beautiful sipping rhum, those notes of candied orange are awesome and pairs beautifully with the sweetness of the product.
