Rum aged in used bourbon and Scotch whiskey casks with notes of toffee, chocolate fudge and tropical fruit.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva is the best selling rum from critically acclaimed Venezuelan producer Distelerias Unidas, distilled from sugarcane and aged for up to twelve years. It’s the project of Master Distiller Tito Cordero, who has skillfully blended a range of rum vintages distilled from sugarcane honey and molasses (with sugar levels from 40% - 60%) to create layered flavors of chocolate fudge and tropical fruit. Sweetened and brought to proof with more aged sugarcane distillate, this is one of the easiest, smoothest sipping rums in the world.
