I like original diplomatico so I was expecting a lot from this beauty. And thankfully I was not dissapointed! It is not that sweet but supersmooth. On the nose you can smell caramel, vanilla, wood and sherry. In mouth flavours of caramel, sugar cane, tobacco, oak and sherry. Simply awesome.
If you liked the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, then this one is one level better. Simply amazing
By far my favorite of the Diplomatico Rum line. It has a great body, not to mention its smoothness. Go a get a bottle tonight!
The direction of this rum is quite the same as the Reserva Exclusiva.. Smooth, nicely sweet, easy to drink.. a preferred choice for sipping event.. BUT the Selecccion de familia has noticeably stronger tones for your nose and noticeable more intensive taste. I mean it it something like your favorite song.. If you increase the volume you will enjoy it more.
Sugar: Estimated at 25 GPL. Less sweet than the Reserva Exclusiva, but a bit sharper on the palate at 43% ABV. Strong taste of wood with some nuts like walnuts or almonds. I also detected a bit of sherry and sweet caramel. You definitely have to let it breath in order for the burn from the extra alcohol to fade. It's a bit better than the Exclusiva but not as good as any of the Single Vintage series that I have tasted. I put a couple of drops of distilled water in my glass and this rum becomes very smooth. Based on where it is in the Diplomatico lineup I give this a solid 7.5 rounding up to an 8 as I've rated the Single Vintages at 9 and the Ambassador at a 10. If you like the Diplomatico brand then give this one a try.
Banana, sweet cookies and dark chocolate in the nose. Very smooth in the mouth with honey, still banana and a hint of vanilla. Lasts very very long in the pallate.
This is an excellent sipping rum, neat or with ice. It is similar, however, to its little brother in the green bottle (Reserva Exclusiva). Next time I think I will save the $15 and just get the Reserva Exclusiva. Nothing against this rum, it’s just that they made the cheaper one just as good in my opinion.
Diplomatico Selección de Familia is very similar than Reserva Exclusiva. Not so big difference just small nuances of taste. But I like Reserva Exclusiva a lot so this one is good one too. :)
Very complex and rich rum, undoubtedly Diplomatico style! If you like the Reserva Exclusiva, you are going to like this limited edition from Venezuela!
