The second in a line of limited edition Rum showcasing the power of the still — this one produced exclusively on a rare Barbet still from 1959.

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.

The second still to be installed in 1959 was a continuous column still. But this still was of a rare and unique design called a Barbet. There are very few Barbet stills running today. Diplomatico N°2 Barbet Rum is a small batch Rum created exclusively from Spirit distilled on this still to showcase this differences.

Smartass Corner:
The Barbet Still is a still created for continuous distillation. The most common continuous still used today is the famous Coffey still with it’s signature two-column design. The Barbet is structurally similar to the Coffey design, but has a reflux condenser mounted near the top.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Warm Hazelnut

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma starts with allspice and honey, developing into floral and autumn fruits.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is soft and a bit dry with surprising apple notes over more familiar mango, oak and baking spices.

The finish is long with a note of flamed citrus.
Ratings & Reviews
so nice to sip. A great combination of molasses and oak. Flows over the tongue like spring water. A long tail of maple and coffee. I really like this one as a sipper.
Excellent for the price. Diplomatico continues to live up to their reputtation. A rum that tat tastes like a rum should, bold, smooth and distinctive.
Smooth lots of fruit, oak flavor. Its dry long finish. Little splash of water brings out the complexity. Overall good Rhum but in my option worth $50 or less
This is probably one of the best rums I've ever had. It made a great old fashion.
