Diplomatico Ambassador

Diplomatico Ambassador bottle

70cl, 47% ABV

Diplomatico Ambassador Selection has been created by Rum Master Tito Cordero, only the 3rd Rum Master in the history of DUSA. Crafted from 100% heavy pot still rums and aged for a minimum of 12 years, the rum is aged in ex-bourbon casks and then finished for an additional two years in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Not only does it contain no sweeteners, caramel or other additives, its high strength (47% ABV) also means it does not require chill-filtration. This ensures that fatty acids which contribute to the mouth feel and flavour are not removed during the filtration process, allowing for an exceptionally smooth finish.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Rich raisins, stewed apricots and soft brown sugar are balanced by drying woody tannins hinting at recently emptied cigar boxes.

Palate

Rich and sticky, with more raisins, cinnamon butter and caramelised bananas shot through with soft caramel, holding everything together.

Finish

Lingering hints of liquorice root and dark sugars sweetened up by light sugar syrup.

Comment

A rum that shows the power of good cask management: an excellent selection of well-matured rums, blended by a master and finished in high-quality PX casks to add depth and complexity to an already impressive spirit.
