Der Rum ist natürlich viel zu stark gesüßt und wahrscheinlich auch aromatisiert, ein guter Türöffner in die Rumwelt ist er aufgrund seines gefälligen Aromas trotzdem.

Molto dolce, ma ben equilibrato nei sapori. Un buon rum. Purtroppo il voto è penalizzato dalla scelta di addolcirlo con zucchero.

Wenn man gewohnt ist, Rum in Fassstärke zu genießen, dann erscheint dieser einfach nur lasch und dünn. Die Nase ist noch ganz interessant mit Banane und Fruchtgummi, hat aber einen künstlichen Einschlag. Am Gaumen ist dann Schluss: zu süß, zu mild, zu eindimensional.

This is a very nice reserva from Diplomatico. Well balanced in the spices and fruit. Let it rest in the glass first and then rest in your mouth as well. Smooth and very good with a cigar. This one is definitely asking for seconds.

Zu süß und ohne Raffinesse. Im Abgang leider direkt weg.

It’s much too sweet for me, sugarbomb. It’s more of a liquor than rum.

Mal wieder einen Abstecher zu den Beginnern gemacht und es ist sehr süß... Es dominiert und überdeckt vieles. Ich bin gespannt, wie sich dieser Rum mit den neuen EU-Gesetzen zu Zuckerzusätzen ändern wird. Laut Hersteller soll es eine neue Rezeptur geben.

Un classsique pour s’éduquer au monde du ron.

The nose has lots of sweet notes but alot of alcohol too. The palate is sweet. Very sweet. For me way too much. It is rather creamy and easy to drink though. The finish has a less sweet notes (It's still there though, no getting away from that sugar). Lots of woody and cocoa notes. It's not very long though. I don't think I'd restock but it is something to try if you're into your sweet rums.

So yes this is very sweet. but it has some nice rum notes to it, too, like fruit and wood. the aftertaste almost seems similar to some kind of liqueur.
