Diplomatico Single Vintage 2002 Rum70cl / 43%
The third release of Diplomatico's single-vintage rum, this comes from the 2002 harvest. Aged for around 12 years in bourbon and single malt whisky casks before being finished in sherry wood, this has tempting aromas of sweet pastry, baked bananas and cinnamon, along with richer notes of fruit cake, roasted almonds and treacle toffee.

Hmm. As with all Diplomaticos, sweetened to an extent of roughly 20 - 40 grams of added sugar per litre. No hint of oak, makes one wonder about the age statement. Sherry covers some of the lack of quality, but I would not ever recommend this to a true rum connoisseur.
As expected, lovely... Expedition very fast and packaging excellent.
The Diplomatico Reserva was my favourite rum that I tasted straight, however the Single Vintage 2002 Rum takes that taste to the next level. I think my next investment will be the Ambassador.
Excellent rum, very smooth and love the way it has an influence of whisky. Diplomatico Reserva is a great all rounder and this takes it to the next level, is perfect to drink straight.
