Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Nice tasting rum. It was nice to try both batch 1 and 2 side by side. Considering it was the exact same batch of rum only difference was the way it was distilled. My personal opinion was this version was much more refined and had the best of the two finishes, however my son felt the exact opposite about the 1 over the 2 batch. Good mans rum, no additives or back sweetening. Good rum and unique.
The first time wasn’t that good. Tasted mostly like liquor. The second time was a lot better. A lot of sweetness and the burning sensation down the throat was just right
Purchased a sample from Master of Malt.
Fruity and oaky, treacle, it's syuppy and warning with a touch of spice. Wonderful sipping rum but a tad pricey at £60.
This starts with a lightly sweet aroma of crisp apple with a hint of caramel and peat. Sipped neat, it fills the mouth with smokey flavor that gives hints of cocoa but very little sweetness. Just a little heat in the back of the throat, this sipper is very smooth for its 47% ABV.
Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 2. Barbet Rum !
On the nose- floral notes with vanilla, oak, toffee and bourbon.
First sip- a welcomed mellow burn right off the bat with rich dark flavors such as smoke, oak, tobacco and dark chocolate.
The finish has a sharp burn that only lasts for a moment or two but not at all over powering. Really reminds me a lot of a sweet bourbon.
When diplo made this rum it was a shot at all the sweet haters. They were going for much more of an unadulterated rum taste with less added sugar/color. Not the best rum I've ever had but not mad I made the purchase. Made from a continuous column copper still and aged in American oak barrels.
Na Zdrowie 😎🥃🤙
I am still in the sweet rum range, and this one took some getting uden to, but i find some very interesting taste notes in this rum.
God rom, dog er collection no. 1 bedre, efter min smag.
Smag af egetræ, citrus og tørret frugt.
Apart from the new Diplomatico 1, Diplomatico 2 brings nothing special... a semi-sweet, smooth rum as many others.
A bit more "rum like" than the No1. A bit more presence, but not as rounded
Fin rom. Har en fin smag uden at være prængende. Synes prisen er for høj i forhold til rommen.
Tried a glass of Diplomatico No. 2 Barbet Rum while vacationing in Brussels. Semi dark color. Robust bottle design with a sturdy box plus a nice old fashioned label. Very strong alcohol straight to the nose and considerably drier than Diplomatico Reserve Exclusiva. Rather similar flavor profile to No. 1 batch Kettle Rum but more burn due to no added sugar. Taste lingers a while afterwards when the burn has already dissipated.
Ikke helt i top. En Diplomatico der ikke er sødet men som har lidt i sig. Flad eftersmag.
Nice vanilla sweet nose. Abvish sharp smokey vanilla oaky body. Lng snooth vanilla snokey sweetish loooong end. Less sweet the Diplomatico Reserva and more taste of alcohol...
Hier will Diplomatico auch noch auf den Zug aufspringen,Flasche und Verpackung sind schön gemacht auch die Flaschennummerierung wie man sie von wirklich hochwertigen Flaschen kennt.
Aber der Inhalt geht für diesen Preis gar nicht,eine langweiliger Rum ohne Ausdruckskraft oder Aromaerlebnis. Da schenke ich mir dann lieber denn halb so teuren Reserva Exclusiva ein oder legen ein paar Euro drauf und geniesse den ganz hervorragenden Single Vintage.
Die Distillery Collection Nr 1 ist übrigends genauso langweilig und dieser Meinung waren alle Teilnehmer unseres Rumabends
