Diplomatico N°1 leads of this series of special limited editions made exclusively from Rum distilled on a rare Kettle still and aged six years in ex-Bourbon casks.

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.

Distilería Unidos has long practiced a variety of distilling techniques. The famously have several different still types that they use with intent and craftsmanship to create different flavor profiles. They created the new "Distillery Collection" to highlight the effects of each type of still on the Spirit.

Diplomatico N°1 Batch Kettle Rum is, as you might have guessed, created from Spirits exclusively created on an antique copper Kettle still on site. The Kettle still at Distilería Unidos was originally used for Whiskey-making in Canada, but was installed in Venezuela at the third still in 1959. To complete the profile, it’s aged for six years in ex-Bourbon casks. The result is a delicious Rum with a more "Whiskey-esque" flavor profile.

Smartass Corner:
A Kettle still is a batch still similar to a Pot still and Alembic still, but with a straighter side and simple discharge neck.

What does Diplomatico N°1 Batch Kettle Rum taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Diplomatico N°1 Batch Kettle 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.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Dark Umber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma leans toward toasted oak, drying wood tannins, and light florals laying over the fruit notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate builds on the aroma, adding caramel, vanilla, baking spices, and red plum notes.

The finish is long with a note of flamed citrus.
Ratings & Reviews
Great Rum, probably second or third best rum i’ve ever had. To me it is unforunately overshadowed by this brands much less expensive Rum, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva.
What you might expect...carmel notes. Little water takes this along way.
