Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva


Venezuela takes their rum seriously. So seriously, in fact, that Venezuelan rum holds a Denomination of Controlled Origin (DOC) geographical indication, meaning Venezuelan rum must meet certain exacting standards and be produced only inside the country’s borders. With rums like Diplomático’s flagship Reserva Exclusiva, it’s easy to see why they are so protective. Distilled from sugar cane molasses and aged for up to 12 years in oak casks, this is a quintessential dark rum that strikes all the familiar cords but does so with considerable finesse and elegance. From a rich aroma of dark brown sugar, coffee beans, and baking spice to a silky, sweet palate showcasing caramel sauce, grated nutmeg, and roasted hazelnuts, this is a rum that begs to be sipped but still shines in a tropical cocktail.
