Diplomatico Single Vintage 2004 Rum

, , , , ,

Diplomatico Single Vintage 2004 Rum is an exceptional rum distilled in a combination of old copper pot stills and a batch kettle, then aged in ex-bourbon casks before being finished for twelve months in oloroso Spanish sherry casks.

Following one of the best (and sweetest) sugar-cane harvests in Venezuelan history, Diplomatico decided to release the Diplomatico Single Vintage Rum for export starting in 2000. The latest season has produced favourable conditions in the field that have concentrated the sugars in the cane, with 2004 another remarkable vintage and hence also yielding one of the lowest allocations on record. This makes for an exceptional rum yet scarce release.

Limited quantities available.
