Launched in 2004, the postage stamp-like label of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva depicts a bearded gentleman named Don Juancho Nieto Melendez, who was noted rum enthusiast in the town close to the distillery. Don Juancho was widely travelled and over the years amassed a large collection of rums which he took great pleasure in offering his guests at the lavish dinner parties he held at his house.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 08/11/2010
Clear, chestnut brown.
A nose of sandal wood, new leather satchel and chocolate espresso coffee.
Rich coffee, milky chocolate palate with liquorice, orange peel, brown sugar, maple syrup and Chinese plum sauce.
There's a note of curry spice to the lingering finish.
