I had the opportunity to taste Diplomatico Mantuano at a celebration recently. If you haven't tried it yet and would like to compare it with e.g. Diplomatico Reserva Exlusiva (RE), here are a few observations:

1) Colour - I would say it's the same for both, although it seems to me that the Mantuano is a little darker.
2) Smell - Mantuano is more smelling of alcohol (some kind of spirits), which is probably due to a little less ripeness. The rest of the smell is similar to RE. In my opinion, the aroma is dominated by dried fruits (plums).
3) Taste - this is probably the most important thing for everyone. After the first sip, it first occurred to me that it was so "thinned/diluted". RE is more dense after drinking. Mantuano is so called "watery". It's also a little sharper than RE, but over time it calms down and by the end the taste is not so different compared to RE. Mantuano is also a little less sweet.

To sum it up, Mantuano seems to me like 2nd quality of RE. Is it worth paying extra money for RE? The price difference is approx. 300 CZK (12 EUR). Personally, I prefer to pay the extra money.

Overall rating: 6,5 from 10

Sweet on the nose. Pretty balanced without being overly sweet. It's nice but nothing special

Powerful rum, more sour tones than f.e. zacapa 23. Much stronger mouthfeeling, darker tones here than zacapa or Don Q gran Anejo. Sweet, cane-like. Still nice for me personally.

Very interesting.
Was wondering how exclusiva would taste if only you could somehow remove the extra sweetness...
Now I know and I can confirm it's good.
Missing the complexity as well...
Overall decent.

It still has an intense alcohol flavour. Probably it needs some time to settle down a bit. But in this price range it is reasonable.

My favourite, together with Pampero Aniversario. Seems like venezuelan aged rums are my favourites. Santa Teresa I would use for paint removal, though.

Beautifully smooth rum, perfect for sipping over ice. (I keep mine in the freezer).

Almost as good as the reserve, but I like the reserva a little bit more

Sweet but not too much, strong alcohol sensation on the nose. Cheap.

God med mycket smak som tar slut lite för fort, Stark men med en viss sötma. jag smakar ingen spritsmak.

It took me some time to decide how to rate this Diplomatico or Botucal (name it as you want). It sweet, there's some vanilia, carmel. Both in aroma and taste, but quite flat or subtle - to be honest I really don't know. There's a little bit of wood in the smell... But that's it. Nothing special, nothing unusual. For this price (20€) I would say: acceptable
