I don’t think it’s really living up to the high price, but still a must have at my Spanish shelf.

Though this is a 94 proof it is really well balanced and you can hardly taste the alcohol. A better version of the Exclusiva with far more nuances and variety of spices.

A bottling that wants to be premium for me, but is not. Colored to suggest age, sugared to suggest maturity. The nose very inviting, it promises an old Spaniard, which has got decent wood off, with decent spices. Here, however, also already a trace artificial, sweet (I would like to insinuate here expressly no artificial flavors, it seems, however, unrounded...). Too thin on the palate (why dilute something like this?) and again unharmonious. Individual flavors dominate, do not integrate well into the overall result. In addition, a nevertheless clear sweetness, which fights against neat wood and smooths its bitterness. For me, absolutely nothing I need to buy or even should buy. Taste not my thing and the price far from any reality....

I own this bottle and it is still really good but with its low ABV I unfortunately can’t give it more points. Again I would have loved been able to taste it before the watering down.

Raffinato e complesso, con punte dolci di amarena e un finale aromatico di frutta e frutta secca, in pieno stile Diplomatico

Ich würde vermutlich keine 200 Euro für eine Flasche ausgeben, dafür ist er mit doch etwas zu alkoholisch scharf, er ist aber schon sehr nah am perfekt runden Rum dran!

bon mais pour le prix n'arrive pas à la cheville d'un ''vrai'' rhum et l'emballage (l"habit) ne fait pas le rhum (le moine)
