Ron Diplomático Reserva Rum
Ron Diplomático // Venezuela
Diplomático rums are produced in Venezuela at a facility that prides itself on its environmental initiatives as it practices traditional methods of rum production. This Reserva is made from rums averaging 8 years old. It's a dark gold-colored rum made from a similar composition of Diplomático’s blanco, with a 50/50 blend of molasses-based rum distilled in column-stills and sugarcane rums distilled in copper pots; it is aged in used bourbon barrels.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"This is a very sugary-tasting rum that has a light mouthfeel. Almonds, golden apple and vanilla mix with a slightly herbal accent. Though most will reach for this one in shaken cocktails, it can work double duty in a stirred Old Fashioned. That is, of course, if you aren’t sipping it neat, which is highly encouraged."
