The origins of Diplomatico Rum date back to the late eighteenth century to a man named Don Juancho Nieto Melendez, an enthusiastic traveler and connoisseur of fine beverages. He traveled the world studying the sources and production methods used to create artisanal spirits, then used this knowledge to develop his own premium rum.
Diplomatico "Ambassador Selection" is a truly memorable rum which was matured in oak for up to twelve years, then transferred to Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, where it spent another two years. Enticing aromas of dried and candied fruit combine with powerful notes of vanilla, spice and sugarcane, accented by a delicate touch of smoke. Complex notes of dark chocolate, coffee, cinnamon and baked apple appear on the palate and merge with rich flavors of vanilla, honey and oak. A hint of fine tobacco lingers through the finish.
