Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I'm not a big fan of the light rums, but this is one of the best I've had. This is one of the few light rums I've tried that I really enjoy straight. Light vanilla, sugarcane, and oak. Soooo smooth and creamy. VERY highly recommended if you like light rums!
Toffee, caramel, vanilla, and a wonderful thick mouth feel. Goes well with tropical drinks, but not my favorite as a sipper. At $30 a bottle, price is it's biggest negative.

Simply the best white rum I have tried. It could almost be a good sipper! Not tried it in cocktails yet
Best white rum I have ever tasted. So smooth and neat, great for daiquiris, great with rum and coke. This rum is so smooth I've even tried a few cocktails with it in place of vodka. For 24$ it is my go to white rum, and a great choice for any occasion, full marks.
Price: $23 and change. That's premium territory and with this selection, I'm 99% convinced there's no complexity or eye-popping flavor profiles to be found in any silver/light rum. The Diplomatico Blanco Reserva is rather boring. On the nose I get alcohol, slight floral and wood notes. It has a creamy mouth feel that's a little syrupy up front and the sweetness lingers on the lips after the rather quick finish. It tastes like powdered sugar donut flavored, sweet vodka. A faint hint of wood and Dutch Cocoa come in at the very end after the swallow and it just isn't that smooth either. Makes great cocktails however, so does the $9/liter Calico Jack. Until I come across the Plantation 3 stars or any other highly regarded silver rum, I'm stocking the bar with these light rums: Calico Jack, Cruzan and Wray and Nephew (overproof). Their flavor/quality per price point is excellent in my book. This was expensive for meh.
This is a very interesting white rum ,with some of the complex flavours of amber like rums. It tingles the tongue at first but is smooth with a pleasant finish. At $45can it is an average price but,it is now unavailable in Ontario and Manitoba.
My nose catches only alcohol and floral fragrance. In the mouth there is a burning sensation, a pleasant barrel, again a burning sensation and bitterness. A lump in the throat, woody-herbal taste, alcohol, sweetness. Pleasant warmth through the esophagus. Amazing thing: the mind first becomes indistinct, then clears up!
I'm not a big fan of the white rums.
They are well suitable for coctails and many times a bad standalone drink. But this is one of the best I've tried. Light vanilla nose and body... light sweetness and very smooth body for a white rum. A bit aggressive abv at start but well balanced at the end... I would say: Top white rum.
Interesting white rum. It has the shoe nail polish taste of a vodka but quickly comes back into a sweetness with some light grassiness. Would definitely recommend as a white rum to mix in tropical drinks if you want to not destroy your mouth/stomach.
Dricker helst min rom ren och gillar därför egentligen inte vit rom. Men den här funkar konstigt nog att dricka bar. Men förmodligen är den bättre som bra drinkrom så klart:-)!
I am a huge fan of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva as a sipping rum. Diplomatic Blanco is not for sipping and/or people who generally enjoy the smoky, complex flavors of sipping rum. This rum goes through a distillation process 4 times, really purifying the flavor of the rum. I find it comparable to Kettle One, and in fact, enjoy with a whisky ball and a lemon twist. It also mixes well with dark and stormy and mojito cocktails.
Nose: Mild aroma of buttery caramel, baked banana and vanilla. I've heard others say oak, mint and lime, but I did not get those notes.
Taste: Mild and smooth. Subtle traces of caramel, banana, lemon (hence the recommendation to serve over ice with lemon twist)
Overall, highly recommend for mixers and vodka drinkers that have never enjoyed rum. Bottle runs around $40.
Once heard, that its best white rum. Maybe its true but alcohol is still strong in this one as in all white rums
It will go well with a cold cola or something like that. I did not enjoy it straight up.
Deze super premium rum uit Venezuela is blend van rums met een leeftijd van maximaal 6 jaren oud. Door de distillatie in koperen Potstills én een zuiving door middel van houtskool maakt deze rum uniek, zacht en vooral rijk van smaak. Deze rum heeft al diverse prijzen gewonnen en behoort tot de betere blanke rum.
Eind de jaren 80’ was Don Juancho Nieto Melendez en zijn brandende passie voor het verkennen van de bronnen en processen zorgde eruit uiteindelijk voor zijn eigen verantwoordelijkheid voor de vele verleidelijke smaken van de traditionele dranken waaronder de rum.
Hij was vooral geïnteresseerd in ambachtelijke productiemethoden die ondanks relatief constant gehouden, waren kunnen opleveren uiteenlopende duidelijk verschillende resultaten .
Hij was gefascineerd door de subtiele complexiteit van de vele omgevingsfactoren die het rum -proces beïnvloeden , zoals het weer en de vochtigheid van de tropen. Een vakman in hart en nieren , Don Juancho was onvermoeibaar en zocht naar manieren om zijn eigen product te verfijnen door bemonstering van een uitputtende reeks van exotische likeuren en rum . In feite zijn zijn indrukwekkende verzameling drank heel beroemd geworden.
Don Juancho bestudeerde aandachtig de productie- methoden die in Jamaica , die op dat tijdstip de wereldstandaard was voor de vervaardiging en de waardering van rum.
ca incepator, aveam dubii in privinta lui... ei bine, nu m-a dezamagit, dar totusi este inferior celorlalte 2 din aceeasi familie pe care le-am incercat.
I only drink this rum straight and am pleased with it. It has a creamy taste and mouth feel and upon swallowing you can taste sugar cane. There is a little burn, but nothing unmanageable. Overall a smooth clear rum that can be drunk neat or in a cocktail.
Incredibly full bodied for a white rum, with much of the same sweet flavours that you might find in some of Diplimatico's other offerings but predictably lacking the depth of the aged rums and not as smooth. Only tried it straight but I imagine it would work well in a cocktail to replace the cheap white rum often used.
I only use rum in mixes with coke. Very smooth, hints of aromatics, but also a strange taste that i can't describe. Personally I miss some freshness in this rum.
Exceptional white rum. Coconut, coffee and vanilla notes. Coconut and chocolate taste with a light finish.
Never a white rum fan but this stuff is vile and should be left in the bottle...
Now this is some good stuff. It's a white rum straight which it is what it is, little too much of a bite but with a touch and I mean a touch of coke this really becomes a one to many by accident type of drink. It's almost like long island iced tea when in coke with a rum after taste, in fact it's so good me typing this made me go get another one. It has both a dry initial taste and then follows up with a sweet after taste, that's amazing how they did it. No bold body to this one, it aims for a VERY crisp taste. Think like Sprite kind of taste and body and to me that makes it bold in it's own sense. This one gonna be a staple. I would rate 10/10 if it was better neat.
Etonnant ce Diplomatico, puisque c'est un rhum qui a vieilli en fut de bois durant 2 à 6 ans. Il va ensuite passer par des filtres à charbon pour retirer sa couleur brune. L’objectif étant de répondre au marché américain consommateur de spiritueux incolores.
Avec la couleur qui disparait au passage du filtre, il en est de même avec aromes et saveurs qui partent avec l’eau du bain…
Like this one a lot, Nice smooth white rum. This is one you have to try if you like white rums. Price is a bit high for a white rum, paid a little under €30,- for a 0,7L bottle.
