An aged Rum as fine as any you will find, finished in Sherry casks, and elegant like a queen.
The Licorerías Unidas S.A Distillery was founded in 1959 deep in the heart of Venezuela in partnership with Seagrams. The partnership was very successful, supporting Rum production in the Seagrams portfolio for decades. During the acquisition binge of the 1990s, Seagrams was largely acquired by industry giant Diageo who already had a large production capacity. Seeing an opportunity, local management and entrepreneurs bought the distillery and the Diplomatico brand from Diageo in 2002, renaming it Distilería Unidos. Today they produce a wide array of quality Spirits under family ownership.
Diplomático Ambassador Rum is a delight. There’s just no other way to say it. It is comprised of the most select casks of Diplomatico Rum — from a combination of column and pot copper stills — aged on site in white oak for a full twelve sun-drenched, tropical years. Then it’s finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks and bottled at an exquisite 47% ABV. This is a fine Spirit crafted by Tito Cordero — a winner of the Master Rum Blender of the Year award. It is designed to be sipped neat and we can’t imagine serving it any other way.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is amazing with luscious fruit notes, exotic raw nuts, braised plantains, cocoa, and cinnamon spice cake.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate, a sweet pipe tobacco arrives first with fresh butter biscuits, apricot jam, rancio, medjool dates, and banana cream.
The finish is long and deep with sweet exotic spices.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Diplomatico Ambassador Rum and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
