The Rum: Diplomatico Añejo 40 abv
Distilled : n.i., by Destilerias Unidas
Bottled: ca 2013
Nose: lots of caramel and vanilla, raisins, haribo sweets, a slight vegetal touch (clove) and some nutty aroma’s, all ending with soft black pepper
Taste: Rather sweet, again lots of caramel and very subtle a hint of tropical fruits. The end gets a bit more spicy. No offnotes..but not the most complex rum either.
Finish: sweet and a little fruity, the rather short finish ends with a harsh throat feeling.
Our score : *** Nothing wrong with this rum…just a bit harsh and rather…well…boring. But then again… price/quality ratio this Diplomatico is OK.
