Have had this one for a while together with three other of the single vintages and this is the first one I open.
I think it has a nuanced, complex and a elegant taste of almonds, nuts, chocolate, yellow fruits such as orange, arrack and with a hint of candied figs.
The Sherry finish is also clearly recognizable.
The finish is quite long.
Unfortunately I think it’s a little too sweet even though the ABV of 43% balance the sweetness to a certain grade.

Amazing nose of caramel and brown sugar, it should seriously be a cologne. Fruitier than almost any other rum I’ve tasted, with cashews, walnuts, and a little leather. Very little smokey or vegetal compared to other comparable rums. Incredibly well balanced neither sweet or spice is too much. Short finish, makes me want to sip more and more.
It’s so unique and complex I’m not sure Id want to sip on it constantly, but plan to circle back every so often and see how it compares to others.
It is strong, has heavy body and cognac like taste. Nice sipper.
Excellent in every way, aroma, taste finish. Great pairing for a Cigar.
Detta är en av de bästa rumen jag smakat. Mycket smak,lite sötma och ingen spritsmak.
Not gonna repeat the same things people comment all around this. Sherry, sweet, lasting body etc. Was the first premium I ever got and I was amazed by the chocolate taste of it. It is a fascinating combination coming from the sweetness and the wood.
This rum was one of my biggest disappointments. I enjoy the Diplomatico rums and this is the first which I did not like - though the standard Diplomatico Reserva (now retired) was only so-so.
Ok, so let's get into why I did not like it:
Nose: very little there. A faint alcohol, some wood, very faint molasses. I pushed my nose to the limits, sniffing and sniffing away...very little.
Taste - a bitterness hits your tongue - very much like walnut, but more bitter than most walnuts and without the slight hint of pleasant nutty-sweetness in that otherwise typically bitter nut. There's a bit of sherry, but more bourbon/whisky - fair enough, the barrels have done their job - but I heavily prefer the Abuelo special barrels, Dos Maderas, or (for the bourbon) Mount Gay Black Barrel. All seem to have more from start to finish and more depth. After the bitterness, you get a sharpness - and I did not find it a pleasant sharpness, personally. There's a bit of burn but not a warmth with it.
Aftertaste-wise - the bitterest of walnuts and a burn.
Give me most of the other popular Diplomaticos over this.
I'll give Diplomatico this though - this is an interestingly different rum from their usual offerings.
Super nice smell, great taste, but it needs to breathe and get som temperature.
Lots of vanilla with a long sherry finish.
Diplomatico single vintages are always a good choice regardless what vintage you choose.

Fantastic and even better at the price 10 out of 10
Lightly sweet and fairly heavy bodied. Complex on the wood and dark chocolate. I get this for 55000 pesos locally in Chile (80 bucks or so US, not that I could get it in the USA). Amazing and spectacular for the price. I’ve been through three bottles. Considering buying a few upfront because they may run out eventually....
