Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Rum

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Rum is on my Middle Shelf 

The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)

Occasions, tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel. 

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf
I did not enjoy it as much so it is on my Middle Shelf.  I have a love/hate relationship with rum. On one hand, I like the aroma of this rum but I found the taste somewhat medicinal and syrupy(maybe it's just me). If you find yourself in my position, try it in different ways like in cocktails, with club soda, or on the rocks. 

Occasion- After dinner
SJ's Pro tip- Use it as a mixer if you do not prefer sipping neat
Cocktail- Hot toddy, Sazerac, Old Fashioned & Manhattan(recommended on its website)
Feel- Medicinal
Food Pairing- N/A
