Diplomatico Ambassador Selection is a limited edition rum crafted from 100% still pot rums and aged for a minimum of 12 years. Like its counterparts, the rum originates from Venezuela and is aged in ex-bourbon casks. The rum has a high strength and does not contain any sweeteners, caramel or other additives which means it does not require chill filtration.
A really great rum. You can taste it is in the same family as Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. But most better.
I know it is expensive but this is truly a wonderful rum and worth saving for if needed or just buying a bottle when you can find one.
Grande richesse aromatique, longueur en bouche, charpenté, sucré mais pas autant que le diplomatico. Du très grand ron goûté dans un bar car au prix de la bouteille ....
Le top du top pour les amateurs de ron
One of the best rums i have ever tasted.. The caramel on the finish just keeps coming!
A very sweet tasting rum.
Will definitely buy another bottle, since i'm down to the last few glasses.
nemozem povedat ze by bol zly to urcite nie, ale bol som prekvapeny ze dost mi v tomto rume prerazal alkohol. az tak ze dost toho prekryl. ked nieco postal, trochu zvetral bolo to o dost lepsie. potom je to slusne vyladeny rum, dost korenisty, nie moc sladky, urcite nie pre novacikov, je to trochu narocnejsi rum, ale to starsie rumy zvyknu byt. 7.5/10
For all the expensive rums I have. Rums at 3 times this price. This is one I keep coming back to. A perfect marriage of sweetness, alcohol warmth, bitter-sweet chocolate and spice. Presented in a beautiful heavy based bottle with a very weighty metal stopper and wire cage. This is one must for any serious collection and one that can be enjoyed at an acceptable price.
This is simply the very best rums that I have ever tasted. This must be a gift from the gods, it is that good! Amazingly smooth, with complex flavors that will keep you coming back for more. Do not hesitate to try this if given a chance, it WILL change your rum-tasting world.
Un Ron donde todos los detalles son cuidados meticulosamente. La fina botella en una impresionante caja de madera es el preámbulo perfecto y anticipa una experiencia única al catar uno de los Rones venezolanos más delicado, exclusivo y costoso de Venezuela. Un lujo desde todo punto de vista.
Cel mai bun! Dacă ai ocazia trebuie să încerci acestă capodoperă... Alt nivel..
Well after trying all the diplomaticos that was the cherry on the cake, bit expensive though...
Tastes of dates, honey, chocolate, and sherry. The sharpness of the bourbon can be found in the aftertaste, although it's not unwelcome with how sweet the initial taste is.
Add a little water to it, and you'll be relieved from the punch in the nose that is present at first and be introduced to some subtler trails in the journey that is this rum. I would personally drink the first half of your serving without water, and then add a little to the second half to lengthen the journey.
This rum was absolutely fantastic. A 9.5, only because I don't personally enjoy the sweetness as much. However, this is still one of the most complex and fine rums I've ever tasted.
Sencillamente impresionante, soy un amante del 12 años y este es la culminación total de diplomático. Un 10 sin ninguna duda.
This is for sure one of the better rums out there. I lack the broader vocabulary many of you possess and I feel I cannot fully put words to how I feel about this rum. What I can say is that it is one of the best ones I have in my cabinet due to it's great sipping potential. Only one rum that I have tasted beat this rum, and that one comes from the same distillery. It is not aggressive in any way and it stays with you after you swallowed it. Will come back and put more words to the feeling once I get a better hang of it.
The reason I say it is not full pot is that I like my rum a bit more sweet then this and that is why I cannot go all out here.
A ce jour le meilleur rhum qui m'a été donner de gouter.
Well-balanced, nice long finish; but ultimately too bitter and uncomplex as a sipping rum, for my taste. Need to let a lot of alcohol evaporate to find the flavors. Tastes too much like the wood barrel.
Aroma: old wood/oak
Taste: balance of slightly sweet and slightly bitter
Flavor: wet aged wood, hint of molasses and caramel
Texture: light body, sting of (cask strength) alcohol
Finish: long, long bitter then sweet, then mild molasses, then sugar
This is a great rum that everyone will like. It does however lack some distinct personality. Bottled at a nice 47% it is not to nimble, and just pungent enough to get its message through. I would have loved for it to have a little more attitude, as its flavors just doesn't surprise. A rum in this price-range, should offer something completely out of the extraordinary, and I just don't feel that it hits it's mark.
Beaucoup craignent la notoriété du Diplo mais ce rhum, est de loin le meilleur que j'ai pu goûter. Un goût rond qui dure, un rétro hors du commun! Niveau épice, c'est du tout bon. Je pleure déja car la moitié y est déja passée...
A lot of rums want to be this rum but there is only one Diplomatico Ambassador Selection.
Yes, it's pricey, but it's super. Tried on the rumvent calendar and plan to order a bottle for special occasions.
Finally. I tasted close to 100 Rums and finally I got the first 10.
Fantastic balance, both nose and taste. Nice flavours some banana and cinnamon.
So smooth and long taste together with absolutely fantastic nose. This is something I will take every time when I just find it.
Not a rum connoisseur by any means, but have sampled a few. My most expensive rum. Is it worth it? I don't really know. What I do know is that it deserves to sit at the top of my cabinet. Taste of quality. Very smooth, and I'm not sharing!
difinitivo este rum es la mama de los pollitos esta es mi liga
en boca una delicia suave y frutal
Every serious RUM lover should taste it, to know how can the best rum taste.
Perfectly balanced mix of tastes and flavours, not sweet, not strong, full body with many layers and long aftertaste full of pleasure.
Very expensive for daily drinking, but if you can, try to buy one glas in some good restaurant and taste it.
Absolutely amazing! Beautiful presentation, so very smooth and satisfying to the palate. By far the best I have tasted so far, so well balanced and very easy to drink. Definitely a mainstay in my collection.
