Diplomatico Ambassador Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy A
Nose: Rich raisins, stewed apricots and soft brown sugar are balanced by drying woody tannins hinting at recently emptied cigar boxes.
Palate: Rich and sticky, with more raisins, cinnamon butter and caramelised bananas shot through with soft caramel which holds it all together.
Finish: Lingering hints of liquorice root and dark sugars sweetened up by light sugar syrup.
Comment: A rum that shows the power of good cask management – an excellent selection of well-matured rums, blended by a master and finished in high-quality PX casks to add depth and complexity to an already impressive spirit.

Incredible rum, the best I’ve tried.
Having started out with the Reserva and progressed to the 2002 Single Vintage, I purchased a bottle of the Ambassador as a Birthday gift to myself. It gives you different notes with each sip. If you drink this once in a lifetime consider it a blessing.
Smooth like velvet! At first a strong taste of sultanas, raisins and muscovado sugar. The somewhat strong alcohol isn’t there to find, and the taste grows in your mouth. Liquid candy is the word for this rum, and is one of the best ones out there.
A stunning rum.
Packaging was very very good, so many layers of bubblewrap and packing peanuts, nothing could have happened to it! Very pleased, the engraving was exactly how I wanted it and looked beautiful on the bottle.
This one is very presentable. The taste is a bit fermented, "fruity" is not far fetched. The rum alone is not worth the 200, but combined with the presentability of the bottle and the velvet lined box it comes in, I think it is. Definitely top shelf, definitely placed in front of almost any other product on that shelf.
