Diplomatico Single Vintage 2005 (750ml)
Situated in a town called La Miel near the Andes in Venezuela, Distilerias Unidas produces a variety of distillates but is certainly best-known internationally for their phenomenal rum. Ron Diplomatico Exclusiva has become something of a standard-bearer for modern Venezuelan rum as it is one of the most awarded rums in the world and frequently tops both tasting panels and consumer reviews. Diplomatico is made entirely from molasses and sugar cane honey from local sugar processing plants and has a much higher concentration of sugar than most rum producers have available to them. The result is an exceptionally rich and sweet rum that never fails to turn heads.
Rich aromas of roasted coffee, vanilla, spices, almond and tobacco. The palate is silky and incredibly concentrated with notes of bitter chocolate, red fruit, creamy vanilla and caramel. The flavours linger on the warm satisfying finish. This is the kind of rum you want to sip and savor neat after dinner on a cool Fall evening.
Distilled in 2005 and matured in American white oak casks (Bourbon and malt whisky barrels). This blended rum from Diplomatico has been finished in Oloroso sherry casks for a year, creating complex layers of fruit and the perfect finish.
