Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I would put this up there with the great aged rums like the Abuelo Centuria. Graceful balance between sweet and spicy. A pleasure to have that I will be cherishing for as long as I can!
Very balanced aroma, body and tail. Full body with decent alcoholic touch.
Second only to the 2000, this is a very smooth rum. It does need some time in the glass, but otherwise it’s amazing!
I drank this side by side with the Diplomatico 2000 and 2001, which are some of my all time favorite rums. The bottle was identical with the exception of the vintage. Smell and taste were nearly identical. If fact, I tried to distinguish them in a blind tasting, and struggled to tell them apart.
Has an amazing smell of rich butter toffee, caramel, and butterscotch, with a light sherry taste that isn't strong enough to detract from the rum. Taste is an amazing follow up to the nose. So good, the 43%abv strength is perfect. Simply an amazing rum!
Jeg har bare drukket fire cl av min ny innkjøpte flaske, å vær eneste sipp var som en vakker drøm. For min del trenger jeg bare denne rom. å jeg mener at den trenger å stå noen minutter i glasset å puste så er den klar. passe sødme. vanilje karamel.
Å embalasjen å flasken er stor å tung så jeg ble litt betenkt når jeg hentet flasken, men fikk en valdig god følelse når jeg opnet, selve korken er massiv alu å veier 115 gram alene.
This one was a wild card for me. Enjoyed today with a cigar and good company and I'm not disappointed.
This one will be remembered for it's smoothness and tastiness. There's only one way to describe it: top of chart
I don't have the professional palette to tell you exactly why this is amazing rum, it just is. Wonderfully smooth, tasty, and complex. Excellent bottle and packaging, great for a special occasion
This is a must have for any serious rhum collector. Smoothe almost like a cognac on the tongue. Hues of vanilla and honey. A sweet tasting rhum with no burn. I bought what was the last bottle in the store. Havent opened my bottle but bought a taster as well which i thoroughly enjoyed. This rum is not to be drunk as you wud water. Its a special rhum that should be opened on special occasions. Wonderful.
A rum of Mahogany color and flavor of Vanilla, caramel, almonds and nuts. This Venezuelan rum is silky with hints of vanilla, oak and walnut. Without a doubt the best Venezuelan rum I've ever had.
This 2002 version is smoother than the 2001 version. Climate conditions are certainly the reason . Notes of honey , caramel, vanilla and exotic fruits. Super sweet , very long finish. It is closer to the vintage 2000. Another very good rum from Diplomatico.
Needs time in the glass as it gently wakes up. I'm not qualified to discuss this rum properly, I only know I've found a special rum. I poured myself a small sample, made the most of it and now I feel almost nervous pouring myself more. It's as though this drink frowns at you for disturbing it without a valid reason. You're pouring me into that glass for no special reason?? How dare you.
Rum cognac. Proud owner.
Tried Diplomatico 2002 Single Vintage in Caracas last year and it is an amazingly smooth rum, but the reality is that Reserva Exclusiva is less than half the price and offers you 95% the same experience. In its own right, this is a spectacular rum. Try it out, you won't be disappointed. Single Vintage 2002 has a very nice high end bottle. Toffee, light oak and sherry are clearly identifiable to the nose and palate.
Smoother, and tastier than the 2001. Candy-like goodness, but not as much of a dessert as one might expect with that description. Get it while you can.
Lækker rom. Flot, dufter dejlig. Og en rigtig god smag. Lille smule stærk eftersmag. Nok fra den blev lagert på sherryfad.
Not as sweet as the diplomatico Reservas exclusiva, but with all the complexity and a lot more. Delicious, honey, baking spice, vanilla, caramel, oak, but without the overly sweet/thickness of the exclusiva. Exceptional
Neaparat trebuie incercat. Placerea unui gust intens si asa cum il rerecomanda masterblender de la Diplomatico.
Diplomatico Single Vintage 2002 comes in a very nice package and a beautiful bottle (picture). High class presentation.
This rum needs time to breathe in the glass, you get so much more aromas if you let it rest in the glass for about 15 minutes. At first you sense some sticky alcohol but after a while you get smooth sweet aromas of toffee, vanilla and oak. You can also smell a bit of sherry from the barrel.
In mouth you get sweet flavours of toffee and vanilla. But you also get some spice and oak. It´s very smooth in the throat with a long aftertaste with sweetness and some spice.
A very nice sipper, a personal favourite. I drink it neat.
Yet another great offering from Diplomatico!! This one gets better the longer it sits in the glass. Lots of depth and character. Needs a little more sweetness to make it to my 10 list. Overall a very good quality rum that is very enjoyable.
This is a great pour. Thick juice, needs a bit of time to rest in your glass to settle in and open up.
The nose to me was vanilla, tobacco and fruit. Starts off with fruit and spice, mellows into vanilla and then has a tobacco and molasses finish. A very good pour, better than the standard Exclusiva blend, but also more expensive.
A special occasion pour for sure.
Lovely expression, can’t say enough good things: if you’re drinking this you’re doing something right.
Super god rom. Tæt på en 10’er. Minder om den lille diplomatico, bare bedre 👍
No bite, so smooth. Caramel and dulce de leche notes.
One of the most popular rums in the world is the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, which to me is way to sweet, so I was hesitant to try this Single Vintage Diplomatico. My scepticism was put to shame.
Nose: Toasted oak, dried fruit and vanilla
Taste: Oak, dark chocolate and vanilla. A long finish which gives a great hint of sherry
Overall: This is a wonderful rum, which brings a lot of flavours to the table and a strong and pleasant aftertaste, which almost lasts for days. It can be recommendede for everyone, who feels like treating themselves.
