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.

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

This I truly enjoyed. Rum always was a "mixer" to me and this taught me it can be it's own.

Dave

Stu
Stu,
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!
Julius
Julius,
Incredibly smooth. Cognac and spicy almonds on the nose. Strong notes of vanilla and molasses. Warm on the palate with burnt brown sugar on the finish
John

Dave

This is truly an enjoyable rum. Straight up/neat. Do not add anything to this 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.

Superb rum, flavor profile is smooth and sweet. The caramel and cinnamon really come through for me at the front and the back with the spice and buttery coming thru in the middle. The finish is exactly as described, warming meadium-long and rummy!! an amazing rum entry!!
