Diplomaticos from 2000-2002 are gone, so I tried this new special one. At first it hits you with a lot of alcohol in the nose, but also sweetness and various aromas. If you let it breathe for a few minutes, you discover a very neat rum.
if its Diplomatico it's good that's just a given. This rum is a stronger more robust rum, very little if any sweetness, you can stand a fork in it. Dark fruit and esters on the nose. After finish is the best part of the rum, a touch of bitterness and a bite of alcohol will let you know that you have partook. I liked the No2 best.
I don’t know if I had a bad sample, but the bottle I bought was characterised by a strong alcoholic kick, which is not helping in understanding and appreciating the taste of the product. It’s less smooth than the usual Diplomatico. You can still appreciate some of the variety of taste typical of the family. The wood taste is prevailing over the vanilla.
It’s pricey. But this is very good rum. I agree with other reviewers that this is stronger. And that is GOOD ! Because the balance I there too. Thus is a crafted distillation. Berserk and complex. Superb on ice. Also very good neat. Has some smokiness. No sweetness. Smooth baby, smooth.
Currant and black cherry notes. Crisp and chewy. Great body. Finish is really clean but a little short. I may rate this 9 later. Very strong 8.5. Outstanding sipper.
Tasted at Laka Lono 8/25/22
This is a fiery yet delicious rum. It does cool down as you drink it.
#1 of 3 in a Steph Diplomatico flight
Strong aroma, mix of industrial and sweet. Sweet burned caramel beginning, then wooden touch and solid sweet warming tail
Expected more from title. It is clasic Diplomatico, after taste is long, dry, medium plus alcohol. Good, but no to my taste.
The rum is quite light but it does have a fair amount of “booze” on the nose. It’s flowerly – it has a bouquet.
"The youthful nature of the rum does seem to carry a heavy hit of sweet young (but fiery) alcohol. The finish is fairly short."
