Arctic Wolf's review
Diplomatico Anejo 89.5pts
In the Bottle (4.5/5)
I like the dark glass protecting the spirit from sunlight. If we had a cork in the bottle I would score this a 5.
In the Glass (9.0/10)
Nutty (hazelnut and walnut) aroma mixed with cinnamon and brown sugar. Darker and more brooding aroma than the Exclusiva Reserva even though the spirit is lighter.
In the Mouth (54.0/60)
This tastes very similar to Ron Zacapa23. It is slightly sweeter and harsher. Nutty, caramelly, sugar and cinnamon with butter. It tastes a bit like ameretto and cream. The flavour does have a harsh backbite almost like a sudden infusionof allspice at the end of the flavour. If we had a little more balance here I could rate this even higher.
In the Throat (13.5/15)
I like the finish but find my throat assaulted by a roughness like spices that are still battleing down the throat into the stomache. I do not mind this it is actually mildly pleasant. There is a bitterness like wayward sulpher mixed in here that detracts just a little.
The Afterburn (8.5/10)
I found I really liked this bottle but could never really enjoy it as much as I did the Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva. It is like the precocious younger sister of your girlfriend who has her charm but is just a little too immature to take seriously. Of course if I drink this more often the younger sister may begin to appeal more and more.. .. There is an appeal to the harsher more imature spirit.
