Sweet on the nose. Pretty balanced without being overly sweet. It's nice but nothing special

It still has an intense alcohol flavour. Probably it needs some time to settle down a bit. But in this price range it is reasonable.

Very interesting.
Was wondering how exclusiva would taste if only you could somehow remove the extra sweetness...
Now I know and I can confirm it's good.
Missing the complexity as well...
Overall decent.


Nice spicy caramel nose. Mouth has almost none of that initial alcohol bite, but to me has a negatively over spiced flavor. For drinking neat, it's my least favorite of all the Diplomatico offerings. However, that spiciness peeks through the Coke flavor for a respectable Rum and Coke. Now that statement needs some clarification. I've been lucky enough to have had three bottles of Roble Viejo Ultra Añejo Rum delivered to me by Family traveling from Venezuela. This ROBLEY offering has a wonderful spicy woody caramel flavor profile that busts through the Coke flavor for an unbelievably exceptional Rum and Coke. This Diplomatico offering has the exact flavor profile, but to a lessor strength. With the Diplomatico Mantauno this flavor profile is precieved to break through by varying amounts in different seatings, where with the Roble there's never a question of it busting through. This still makes this Diplomatico offering my go to for Rum and Coke since the Roble Viejo Ultra Añejo Rum is only available at a duty free shop in the Venezuelan Airport.
As a sipping Rum I would have rated this Diplomatico offering lower, but gave it the 9 for it's value in a Rum and Coke

Diplomatico Mantuano is a new item in the US. It makes a decent rum-and-coke drink for you, but this rum is too harsh for neat sipping experience. Go straight to the Reserva Exclusiva and be blown away with how good that rum really is.


This is simply a great rum and has a smooth richness to it, but there are many alternatives that already nail this classification that are cheaper. Sure this one certainly has a smooth finish to it which gives that air of refinement to it, which may make the difference for some.

Au nez dominé par le chêne. En bouche, s'ouvre sur des saveurs agréables de vanille, fruits secs et boisés. Ressemble au réserva de la même marque.


Just simple rum. Simple nose, nothing special taste, reserva exclusiva is much much better

Sweet on the nose, almost cake like makes a very decent rum and coke.

Manque un peu de caractère, ne reste pas vraiment en bouche, mettre 10€ de plus pour un Reserve Exclusive sera un meilleure investissement !

Picked up at a mall in Peru for a bargain price. Overall not bad, but the sharp and harsh taste of alcohol still could be felt.

Doux et sucré. Se boit facilement. Bon choix passe-partout !

Jeg tror denne rom passer rigtigt godt som en del af en cocktail. Som sipperom er den flad og kedelig.

In der Nase nicht unbedingt angenehm. Zum pur trinken aber Ok. Eher eine scharfe Note.

Good for mixing with coke.. this one is not the rum you would enjoy without coke

Rhum molto vellutato la vaniglia domina in maniera importante ma fine,la melassa c'è ma non è nauseante, rimane corto al palato ma il finale non intensissimo è comunque presente nei sapori di legno in botti di Bourbon. Un finale più lungo e intenso gli avrebbe garantito un posto importante nel paradiso dei Rhum

Very decent nose, a little spicy but not much. Good taste with hints of vanilla. It was great with a mango and passion fruit chocolate with touch of pepper.

Har en dejlig duft. Starter svagt i smagen men følger sikkert efter og holder godt.
Er ikke så sød men har en dejlig smag

This is a good Ron! Really good best taste with Cola (Pepsi Max better than Cola Zero - more sweet). Perceptible dark anejo flavor with plums or maybe something like a old barrel or old ship. I think this is great rum for slow lazy days, cold night, autumn. Bottle colors like an autumn, brown and orange. I love sweet, dark, anejo rons...This is good proposition for me - every day internet pirate :D

arrrhhh does not think it comes close to
reserva exclusiva.

oveľa lepšia náhrada za diplomatico 8YO vanilka drevitosť úplne iné diplomatico aké sme mali možnosť piť doteraz

Not as sweet as the Reserva Exclusiva, this is a good rum, specially to use in cocktails. Rich caramel and oak notes, some alcohol content also. Maybe a little bit to much..but i still like this one as a sipping rum.
And for the price (27€), Mantuano is much better than a lot of Añejos that cost the same!

Průměrné chutove. Vůně příjemná. Má nahradit clasicke diplomatico reserva. Chuťově a i hodnocení je velmi podobné.

Good as a step down from the exclusiva reserva (or as an anejo replacement). Nice light and smooth.
