Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The rich toffee, honey, caramel, vanilla flavour and a spice aftertaste that remind me of a childhood hard candy. Smooth, almost soothing. This is a lovely warm rum that should be enjoyed straight at room temperature or with a small block of ice when it's cold and Christmasey outside.
Smooth aged rum. Multiple flavors. Great on the rocks or with soda with a dash of cola tonic. Don’t see this bottle lasting long
Excellent in every way, aroma, taste finish. Great pairing for a Cigar.
This rum comes in a beautiful bottle, very elegant and luxurious.
I would say the product inside the bottle is just as splendid. Aroma is somewhat sweet, vanilla, honey, dried fruit, spices, perhaps a hint of wood.
Those flavours fully develop in the taste, however the rum strikes almost a perfect balance between sweetness and spiciness, it doesn't lack depth and complexity, although the product isn't reminiscent of really old rums, which isn't that much of a problem as the aging this has gone through was just enough in this case. I mean... I originally was going to give it a 9 out of 10, but apart from the price/availability, I do not see any negatives.
Very smooth, truly fantastic. Vanilla, honey caramel flavor.
It’s pretty much all but gone these days. If you are lucky enough to find a bottle, pay whatever price they are asking. It’s the perfect rum
Unikátní chuť a vůně. Chuť vanilky a ovoce s uzasnym zakončením. Velký zážitek
Nice combination of everything makes from every drop nice event.
I tasted the 2000 and 2001 and 2002 and have to say the 2004 is better than 2002 and 2001. It doesnt reach the 2000 but nothing does so its very good. Nice sweet smell and woody harelson like wood. Sweet taste which gets a little spicy in the end. I love it and bought 10 bottles.
Thank u Diplomatico!
In direct comparison with Ambassador, you can really feel the difference. Single Vintage 2004 has his own "character" - darker with wood tones, while Ambassador is more balanced "blend" :-) I just hope, I will have chance to direct compare with 2002 (or even with 2001).
Diese Jahrgangsabfüllung toppt alle Diplomaticos einschliesslich des Ambassadors.Der Preis von 80-90 Euro in D für diesen komplexen geschmacklich wunderschönen Rum in einem hochwertigen Glas Decanter mit schöner Umverpackung ist gerdezu geschenkz verglichen mit anderen Herstellern
Der Rum spielt in der Süssrumliga nach meinem Empfinden ganz oben bei Centenario 30 oder Zacapa white und black Label mit.Absolut wunderschöne Aromen,langer Abgang und eine dezente optimale Süsse
Lightly sweet and fairly heavy bodied. Complex on the wood and dark chocolate. I get this for 55000 pesos locally in Chile (80 bucks or so US, not that I could get it in the USA). Amazing and spectacular for the price. I’ve been through three bottles. Considering buying a few upfront because they may run out eventually....
Really something special I would take this everyday over a 1000 $ bottle of whisky.
It’s up there with the 2000. A simply perfect rum. On the nose this is simply the best rum there is, and it follows through.
Aucune déception autre que le prix et sa rareté. Au nez, il est instance, on sent la vanille. Au gout, on perçoit le chêne. Il possède une longue finale avec une belle complexité. WOW. C'est mon coup de coeur.
Lovely nose of toffee and molasses spiced barrel. Deep flavors of toffee again, juicy honey orange, aged barrel, maybe a hint of roasted nuts? This is complex and really really lovely
Coffee tones with touch of vanilla, chocolate. Superb balanced, with a little of spicy, orange peel. Intensive vintage ...
Mild, simply great...
Probably the smoothest rum I’ve ever had. I like a Rum Old Fashioned and this was a dream with the diplimatico. Lovely deep flavours and you can definitely taste the sherry cask. My only negative comment is that the taste didn’t last long on the tongue, which was a disappointment because it tasted soo good!
Fantastic in every way. Just a damn good rum that does not break the bank (entirely):)
Enjoyed a bottle of Diplomatico Single Vintage 2004 with my friend during a vacation. Very nice and high end bottle and label design. Reddish color. Toffee, light oak, plenty of raisins and sherry are clearly identifiable to the nose and palate. Not as smooth as Single VTG 2002, but spectacular compared to a lot of other rums.
I have a hard time comparing the Single Vintage 2002 with the new 2004, but perhaps the new one is slightly better, but they are both amazing rums.
Smell ig good.
Colour is fine.
Taste is ok.
Aftertaste is good.
It is strong, has heavy body and cognac like taste. Nice sipper.
