Diplomatico Ambassador Selection Rum

,

Diplomatico Ambassador Selection Rum is an exceptional Pure Single Rum created by Master Blender Tito Cordero from 100 per cent pot still heavy rums aged a minimum of 12 years in ex-bourbon casks and then finished for an additional two years in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks.

This excellent rum not only contains no sweeteners, caramel or other additives, its high strength also means it does not require chill-filtration. This ensures that fatty acids which contribute to the mouth feel and flavour are not removed during the filtration process.

Tasting notes: Diplomatico Ambassador Selection Rum is an exceptional complex rum that has a wonderfully pungent nose, the subtle aromas of dried and candid fruit combining with the rich, powerful aromas of vanilla, spices and cane syrup with a little smokiness in the background. On the palate the characters from the aroma persist but give way to a powerful, complex combination of dark chocolate, aged dried fruit, coffee and vanilla, all with a lovely creamy mouth feel. The finish is long, warming and powerful.

Limited quantities available.
