Diplomatico Reserva ExclusivaPosted: April 26, 2010
The Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is a gem from Venezuela. This ‘industrial rum’ (rum made from fermented sugar cane molasses) with deep amberish colour was distilled in alembic (pot) stills and then aged for an approximate 12 years in oak barrels.
Nose – Deserty aroma with sweet honey, cinnamons and a handful of raisins.
Taste – The Diplomatico Reserva Exclusive has a viscous; slightly syrupy texture. I personally find this rum to be filled with dark chocolates and toffee sweetness. Sink in deeper into it and you’ll find gentle tones of candied orange and spices (cinnamon and cloves). This rum finishes of smoothly with a rich and lingering taste.
