I tried Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva a few times - the balance was just a bit too sweet & the flavours are light (too vanilla for my liking). In terms of sweetness, I found the Plantation Barbados 5 year a bit sweet for me but the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva was sweeter still.

I just had a nip of each El Dorado 8 / 12 / 15. The sweetness is dialled back from the Diplomatico & the flavour emphasis of the range is 180° towards 'dark' (sort of dark sugar / little bit coffee / caramel). All are enjoyable.

You can use lots of words to describe rum & reviews / recommendations are great but there's no substitute for trying something - if you're unsure try before you buy
