Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Rum

,

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Rum is an exquisite sipping rum that is made from almost all sugar cane honey. The end result is a truly exceptional rum with sweet and fruity flavours to an even higher level of concentration and flavour intensity of its family members.

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Rum is a blend of 20 percent light column distilled rums with 80 percent complex pot still rums aged up to 12 years, a proportion of which are rums from exceptional barrels which are used in Master Blender Tito Cordero’s secret preparation. Although he won’t reveal the ages of the rums used he has disclosed that he mixes these exceptional rums with a little cane sugar prior to blending with the main body of rums to amplify their flavour so they impart a slight touch of sweetness and a distinctive flavour to the finished rum.

Tasting notes: A characterful nose, showing fruit cake, rum’n’raisin ice cream, cocoa, dried ginger, cinnamon and clove. Develops baked bananas with fudge sauce and chewy toffee notes alongside vanilla oak and a deeper note of syrupy gingerbread, with hints of orange zest. The palate evokes chocolate sauce and the sweet toffee, fudge and tropical fruit flavours from the nose. Flakes of Terry’s Dark Chocolate Orange sprinkled over melted vanilla ice cream. Deep, vivid and extremely seductive flavours.
