Proof66 Notes

The Diplomatico rums stem from the work of Don Juancho Nieto Melendez, who researched several different regions and studied their production methods. The result was "Ron Diplomatico," which appears to have first been produced in the 1890s. In the modern day, the rums are offered in several different expression and this is the Diplomatic Reserva Exclusiva rum considers itself an "ron antiguo" or "antique rum" whose rums are aged up to 12 years in bourbon barrels.

My first experience with premium rum and, oh boy, was I surprised. Smooth, nosy, tasty, sweet. I would say only very slight burn. I am not experienced enough in the English language to describe all the tastes and why I enjoyed this rum so much. Try it out for yourself, for the price (about $29 where I live) it's a no-brainer.

This is a sweet rum. And I mean sweet. Decent flavor profile. And absolutely 0 burn. Its smooth like drinking milk. It took my a few glasses to get used to the sweetness. Wouldnt be my everyday choice but itll be nice for an occasional break from the ordinary.

One of my favorite sweet-tasting rum. On the nose you will find sweet aromas like fruits (cherries), rich molasses, strawberry milkshake and vanilla ice cream. One thing that should be noted is this is VERY sweet for a liquor that is not labelled as flavored rum or rum liqueur. If you like sweet tasting rum with complex nose of all the sweet things you can imagine then i highly recommend this.

Great price for a 12+ year old bottle. I recommend it as a sipper only, maybe with a little ice or twist of lime. Smooth and spicy, one of the most molasses-forward rums I've tried, and close in character to a good blended whiskey.

Pretty amazing stuff especially for the price. Try buying a 13 year old rum (or almost any other spirit for that matter) for $30 with this quality. Yes, there are better rums out there - but for a lot more money.
