Reviving this thread because I've been hearing good things about this rum, and thought it deserved another look.

Get some! It's my favorite (but I keep checking just in case.) Delicious.

Does anyone know if the Reserva is being discontinued? One of my local box stores has had it on sale for $15 for months now and I just looked on Diplomatico's website and don't see the Reserva listed in their repertoire. In it's place is one called Mantuano. The orange on the label gives me hope that this is just a new branding for the same sauce and maybe the discounted price is to exhaust the old stock before the new label hits. Anyone in the know? I've been getting a lot of bang for the buck with this stuff lately and don't want to one day find it's out of production.

I believe the Mantuano is similar to the Reserva, but not identical. It's a newer version of it. I was able to taste it recently but not side-by-side with the Reserva (which I don't have very often anyway) so couldn't get a real clear sense of the difference. If you love the Reserva I'd say for $15, why not stock up?


I just did a quick search and found this article about it:

Hopefully someone with more details will chime in.

Thanks for the link Bama. As the article states, it's a light and approachable rum. While his negative critique seems solely based on it's merits as a sipper, I use it as the base for a cocktail I created that's always a crowd pleaser. So I'm happy to bulk up on the old bottles while I can at $15 a pop until the new label arrives and presumably the price will jump back up to the normal $25 around here.
