Distilled in 2005 and matured in American white oak casks, this blended rum from Diplomatico has been finished in oloroso sherry casks for a year, creating complex layers of fruit. Rich aromas of coffee, chocolate and tobacco mingle with vanilla and ripe fruits on the nose. The palate offers soft notes of bitter chocolate, red fruit, creamy vanilla and caramel.

    Edward Mark Kidman,

    Splendid sipping rum - agree with the tasting notes: I’d add preserved prunes palate and cognac aroma. I don’t get the vanilla but that’s me. Not a heavy caramel flavor like the Guyana rums. Right now sipping it on a doorstep with friends in the Caribbean at 8pm at 28C. Enjoying it immensely.

    Fantastic. Unlike some of the other Diplomatico releases, this has a perfect balance of sweetness (not too much, not too little). The body of the rum is great, and goes down a treat. Truly happy with my purchase.

    One of the most unique noses i've ever smelt,

    Being once my favourite rum, but being turned off after seeing how much sugar is put into the Diplomatico rums- I decided to bite the bullet as I saw this at a great price, and boy... was it worth it. Ive a feeling this has been sweetened, as compaired to a foursquare, or bajan rum- is incredibly sweet, however- has one of *the* most surprising noses I've ever come across. It is not your usual Molasses deep, "heavy" rum, this is a light, sweet refreshing, Banana, foam banana, Cherry, sweets, gummy worm, apple, berry or light fruits, brandy-like grape/sherry On further inspection I get the usual, but *different* Plum, raisin, marzipan, light treacle, demerara sugar, cinder toffee, deep vanilla, treacle tart, clove, toffee, caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, cardiman, spices. I could sit here all day- The taste is incredible- but again, apparently sweetened (from a taster of non-sweetened rums atleast) which can be seen as a downside, howeverthe flavour I get from this rum is just blissful, and the added sugar aids the creamy, gorgeous mouth-feel, but does not take away from the beautiful taste of: Heavy vanilla, caramel, toffee, banana, cherry, apple, coffee, sherry, chocolate, and then the oak spiciness hits the top of your pallette, and thanks to the lower - proof, doesnt overwhelm. This is one for a special occasion, or a treat- I wish it was at 46-50% but even the snobbiest of foursquare efficienados need to try this out- even if its just a sample. Get yourself a sample at the very least.
