If your looking to get Diplomatico just keep your base line at the Exclusiva. No point in dropping down a noticeable tier just to save a few bucks. The Exclusiva is superior in every way and is not much more in cost compared to quality.
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.
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...
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.
God med mycket smak som tar slut lite för fort, Stark men med en viss sötma. jag smakar ingen spritsmak.
My favourite, together with Pampero Aniversario. Seems like venezuelan aged rums are my favourites. Santa Teresa I would use for paint removal, though.
Not so much to write about this one, because its boring. Weak taste of vanilla and orange peel. It drowned in cocktails, i could not really sense the rum. Tried it neat, but was still weak in taste and smell. I ended up using it in cocktails blended with Cross and Smith overproof. Then it worked out quite well. But I still think it is overpriced.
"Overall it is a sweet rum. There is a little spice on the palate and a tiny slither of oak. The finish has a little coffee and a touch of caramel. It is smooth and very easy to drink."
