I had soured on all rums from this company and saw this one on clearance for only $60 US. It was too good to pass up. To my pleasant surprise, it wound up at the top of my list for this company. That was months ago and that bottle is long gone with no more on clearance. It was a pleasant dry rum.

This was a disappointing rum. Higher priced then the Reserva Exclusiva but nowhere as smooth or tasty. Overall it has too much of the alcohol and it burns the nose and your taste. It's not as sweet as the RE. It seems that it's been rushed to market and I think they should take it down to the normal 40% and let the base rums in this vintage age a bit more.
As it is now, it would be good for a mixer but as a sipper, it's not for me.

Aroma of this run is full of tropical fruits. Taste then offer sugar cane, wood and citrus fruits.

Hey Diplomatico, put it back into the system. Let it stand for extra decade and let this wonderful taste to grow up ).

Pretty exotic, fruty and organically dry at the same glass.

But, the cons:
-1 alien alcohol on the nose;
-1 too subtle notes; short after taste;

Not sure whether I need consume episodes 1 and 3 of this serial or see something more classic.

Edit: don't let it stand and breathe, drink ASAP ). Aroma is the best at 47°.
Incrementing the score.

Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 2. Barbet Rum !

Quick review:

On the nose- floral notes with vanilla, oak, toffee and bourbon.
First sip- a welcomed mellow burn right off the bat with rich dark flavors such as smoke, oak, tobacco and dark chocolate.
The finish has a sharp burn that only lasts for a moment or two but not at all over powering. Really reminds me a lot of a sweet bourbon.
When diplo made this rum it was a shot at all the sweet haters. They were going for much more of an unadulterated rum taste with less added sugar/color. Not the best rum I've ever had but not mad I made the purchase. Made from a continuous column copper still and aged in American oak barrels.
Na Zdrowie 😎🥃🤙

Trocha tropického ovoce se dřevem, velmi nevýrazný průměrný rum.

Tasted at Laka Lono on 2/20/22. Dark amber in color. Woody Oakiness to the aroma. Flavor is masked by the unbalanced heat, but plenty of whiskey and bourbon character off the barrels. Perhaps too much. This is the lesser of the two from the Number set.

Excellent for sipping, lightly sweet and vaporizes lightly in your mouth.
