A Rum Classic.

The beginnings of this distillery goes back to the 18th century, when Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez started exploring the sources and processes responsible for the many alluring flavours of traditional beverages. Tirelessly looking for ways to refine his own products, he would study the methods employed in Jamaica, and look for inspiration from the islands of the Antilles as well. Today, Ron Diplomático is one of the most respected producers in the World, with a selection of exciting Rums that have captured the attention of many Rumminados.

Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva is their most award-winning Rum. It was produced in the honour of Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez. It's a complex blend of copper pot still Rums made from sugar cane juice, and matured for up to 12 years in ex-Bourbon casks.

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva + Romeo y Julieta Short Churchill
The Reserva Exclusiva is a staple in every Rum aficionado’s collection. Its caramel and vanilla sweetness with a hint of charredo oak, pairs pleasurably with the RyJ Short Churchill’s rich and creamy, floral notes. The chocolate undertones play nicely off of the Diplomatico’s orange, date and ripe berry notes. Romeo and Juliet aside, this is definitely not a tragic love story.

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. Most popular suggestions are: Rum (the Romani word for potent), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).

Loved this rum, sweet caramel, cinnamon and citrus, well balanced with the sweetness kept in check from the citrus and spicy kick.

A
A,
Got this with the "For the Love of Cigars" tasting box and it really stood out for a rum. Usually not a fan of rum usually because I think of something like Captain Morgan and think "ehh no thanks." The flavor was balanced and bold. Enough spice and the caramel gives it a nice finish.
 
Troy
Troy,
One of the best rums I have tried. A great, complex flavor profile that is easy to drink straight. The vanilla and cinnamon come through with a pleasant sweetness to round it out.
 
Nelo
Nelo,
I very much liked this whiskey. Notes of vanilla and a sweet but not saccharine finish with an almost caramel aftertaste.
 
Niall
Niall,
Sweet, clawing in a pleasant way. Smooth Really liked it.
 
Devin
Devin,
I think this is a very complex Rum. Just the right bit of sweetness and spice. Leaves behind an interesting chocolaty taste. Pretty smooth and easy to sip. I plan to try it with the Romeo and Juliet Short Churchill if I can find it in my town.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
It was a fruity rum.. that I thought was a scotch at first lol.. I definitely tasted the chocolate and cinnamon in the finish.

Brian
Brian,
Holy cow! Who did they sleep with to get this one into a sample pack? I have never been less satisfied with a sprits sample. This was so sickeningly sweet that I poured it down the drain. To even stick this in the same shipment with Dalmore is an insult to fine Scotch whiskey.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Not a rum guy but easily the best one I’ve ever had. Super smooth with an unmistakeable sweetness that’s not overbearing at all. Really good, impressive.

good rum. no need to mix with anything. I liked it on the rocks.
 
Javier
Javier,
I like it. It's ok if none of my other options are available. A short finish. Definitely molasses, sugar, honey, sage, thyme and finishing off with butterscotch.
 
Tom
Tom,
Great sipping rum. Caramel on the nose. Hints of toffee & chocolate. Quite a sweet taste. Medium finish. Goes nicely with 3 cubes of ice. Solid 8.

guest
guest,
I first tasted the Reservation Exclusiva when visiting southern Mexico near Belize. It was a gift from a couple who lived in Venezuela. The smoothest and most flavorful rum that has ever crossed my lips, of which there have been many! Warm and sexy. Musical and poetic. This bottle far exceeds the typical descriptions offered alcoholic beverages. Yes of course there are hints of vanilla, orange blossom, lemon grass and charred oak, but that just doesn’t do it justice! I want this in my bar. I need this in my bar!
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Initial hints of dried fruit give way to cinnamon and ginger nose, and initial flavor with a bit of spice. Strong flavors of caramel and toasted honey.
 
Hansen
Hansen,
sweet tasting, sweet aroma, smooth rum with not too strong of liquor, easily 1 of the best that I had tasted, definitely something that will be on my wish list

It is an outstanding, intense, cane liqueur matured in whiskey barrels for complexity that leads to an extremely smooth finish.

Loved this rum, smooth, sweet, a lot of character!!
 
Jason
Jason,
This is a delicious sweet rum. It has strong notes of dark fruits and brown sugar. It can be overwhelmingly sweet when had neat, but it is delicious straight and used in cocktails/mixed drinks. I continue to enjoy this rum and will buy again in the future!

You sent this one out in an email this morning and had my mouth all watering, and then I go online to order and it's not available?????
 
Scott
Scott,
Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva may just replace Port! The sweetness and hint of cinnamon paired well with a Rocky Patel Decade. This will be on my wishlist!
 
Karl
Karl,
Taste of vanilla, wonderful dark color, smell of a fruity flower, deep brown hues.
 
Philip
Philip,
This was a very pleasant surprise. I took a chance based on reviews. The rum has a moderately sweet aroma. Poured into a glass it has a deep brown hue and good legs. It is the smoothest rum I have ever tried.

Margaret,
Smooth, spicy, sweet- reminded me of gingerbread cookies with the syrupy mouthfeel of molasses and a bit of spicy heat on the back.

Interesting... very different among the dark rums. Heavy on the tongue with a full finish.

Eliot
Eliot,
One of my favorite rums. Smooth and sweet and complex, this is great on its own or in an old fashioned with a drop or two of some complimentary bitters.
 
Ethan
Ethan,
This is hands down some of the most enjoyable Rum I have tasted. A whisky connoisseur's sipping rum. Woody, sweet, smokey, and just enough brown sugar. Absolutely delectable. Extra star for affordability. I would pay double the asking price for this Rum.
 
Scott
Scott,
I had it over ice and did not care for the after taste!

Wow! This is one of the best rums I have ever tasted. For anyone who correlates rum to Bacardi, this is no correlation. Excellent rum!

Tommy
Tommy,
Venezuelan rum is by far my favorite! This and the Santa Teresa 1796 Solera are leaps and bounds above any other rum I have had to date.
 
Jon
Jon,
My favorite rum to date. This one is better than all the more expensive rums that I've tried, including Ron Zacapa, Plantation and Kirk & Sweeney.
 
Bernard
Bernard,
I 1st had this at a Rum seminar at the Phoenix Cocktail Festival this year and just loved it. The smooth flavors are fantastic. Neat is the only way to drink this.
 
Bill
Bill,
My first purchase from Flavair is a definite hit. I am not a sophisticated taster but this is smooth on the tongue and easy to drink. As time goes by, I hope to be able to define flavor better. In the meantime, though, this is the best rum I have had!
 
David
David,
Pure dark cane sugar abounds! A true traditional rum of the southern hemisphere. Quality of individual bottling can vary. Perfect alone over ice.
 
Jack
Jack,
Absolutely the best Rum at this price and at twice the price.
