Diplomático Reserva Rum is produced at the Distillerie Unidas, located in La Miel, at the foothills of the Andes. This region produces approximately 80% of Venezuelan sugar cane in its three most famous varieties: Central Romana, Venezuelana, and Canal Point. What sets Reserva Diplomático apart is the use of both sugar cane honey and, to a lesser extent, molasses in its production. It is delicately distilled in ancient copper pot stills for heavy rums and column stills and Batch Kettle for the remaining 20% of light and medium rums. Molasses is fermented for 18 hours, and sugar cane juice for 48 hours; then, the two distillates are blended to form the final blend. The rum is aged for a remarkable 12 years in carefully selected American white oak barrels by the Master Roneros of the DUSA distillery.
Only a light hint of caramel is added during the processing to enhance the amber color.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva Rum is a spirit of great charm, richness, and persistence. Thanks to the exquisite quality of the starting raw materials and the lengthy maturation in wood, it attains remarkable density and aromatic complexity. The color is a rather dark amber with vibrant golden reflections. The olfactory profile offers aromas of citrus, ripe fruit, spices, dried fruit, caramel, noble woods, and vanilla. The taste is warm and inviting, with a pleasant fruity softness, enriched by notes of cocoa, dark chocolate, soft candy, toffee, spices, and candied citrus peels. The finish is of great persistence, long, and enveloping. Best enjoyed neat or on the rocks, it also excels in classic cocktails such as the Old Fashioned and Manhattan.
