Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The nosing is quite nice with sweet and fruity notes (raisins). The palate adds some notes of chocolate but does not develop any further from that point. Instead the sweetness is getting ever more dominant and the sweetness stays also predominantly with the finish. So if you like sweet rum stuff this might be pleasant. But if you are looking for a full bodied, rich and flavorful rum you might order something else. Gets only a 5 as the degree of sweetness is dubious.
Probably the best sipping rum on the market. Very nice and complex taste where choco, caramel and vanilla dominate. If you want a wonderful gift for a friend pick this rum.
I don't enjoy this rum very much. Overall just uninspirational with a nice presentation.
I feel the flavour profile is just clouded and not very interesting for me.
The plantation linup both the 7 and 15 I believe are just much more fun than this if you're into sweeter sipping rums. It's not bad but damn they do charge for this. Not a huge fan...
Venezula is famous for rums and Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is exception. I specially like its fruty taste that stand up while drining it on the rocks. It is a must try!!!
Recommended by a Venezuelan waiter at a local restuarant and available at local liquor stores (for under $40) this is probabably the best I’ll ever have.
Sometimes I think this one is a little too sweet, but depending on your day's form you can appreciate the complex aroma after the sweetness is gone. A little fruity, chocolaty, caramel. This one should be know as the standard rum.
If this wasn't considered top shelf, I'd probably enjoy it more! Its got a great bold taste. I often order this at steak houses as it pairs nicely with a great steak.
