Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Starts with sweet taste, ends dry, feeling oak wood, spicy, bit plum. Maybe to mix within some drinks...
Sweet on the nose. Pretty balanced without being overly sweet. It's nice but nothing special
Powerful rum, more sour tones than f.e. zacapa 23. Much stronger mouthfeeling, darker tones here than zacapa or Don Q gran Anejo. Sweet, cane-like. Still nice for me personally.
Beautifully smooth rum, perfect for sipping over ice. (I keep mine in the freezer).
Almost as good as the reserve, but I like the reserva a little bit more
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...
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.
This is a good rum. Great flavor, no after burn, smooth across the tongue. Great price for what this rum brings to the table. If you haven’t tried any of the brands yet, start with this one.
Sweet but not too much, strong alcohol sensation on the nose. Cheap.
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.
Not as good as the reserva exclusiva, but for its price its a steal.
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.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Ostřejší lihovost, kořenitost, nádech pomeranče a meruňek, pampeliškový med. Alkohol je ještě trochu nevycválaný. Čokoláda, včelí plástve, krémovost. (82 b)
Chuť: Sladění vůně a chutě je dobré. Opět trochu ruší vyčnívající lihovost. Koření, nasládlost, ovocnost (pomerančová marmeláda). Propolis, skořice, v dozvuku hřejivý. (82 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnávali jsme s kamarádem na dalším degustačním večeru v českolipském Baru/Kavárně Kocour. Hlavní jádro ochutnávky tvořily čtyři Plantationy, k tomu novinka od Diplomática - Mantuano, pak jsme zkusili El Ron Prohibido Habanero a na úplný závěr pak pouťovou atrakci RedRum. Mantuano je takový základní rum, nic extra zajímavého, navíc působí ještě dost nevyzrále.
Easy to drink. I guess you can find something better for the same money
Good rums for cocktails not quite a sipper, well balanced, fair price.
We find even our non rum drinking guests enjoy this. Smooth on the rocks.
Definitely a spicy one but smooth. Reminds me of a scotch in a way. Easy drinking and not offensive at all. Good one to share with the fam during a harvest moon
A very smooth and enjoyable rum that can be enjoyed on it's own or with your favorite mix. It's sweet but not overly so. It has hints of vanilla and toffee. I highly recommend.
Brown to dark brown, strong alcohol finish, prefer it with some ice.
Great rum. Well balanced. Rich and woody. Less sugar and dryer than its older brother the Reserva Exclusiva. To me, the best Diplomático considering the price.
As single this one is okay, but quite good especially in cocktails.
Pretty balanced without being overly sweet. It's nice but nothing special
It was ok. Not my favorite from this distillery. The best part was that it wasnt sweet.
