Diplomatico Mantuano

Diplomatico Mantuano bottle

70cl, 40% ABV

Mantuano is the replacement for Diplomatico's Reserva rum. 'Mantuano', meaning 'nobleman', reflects Don Juancho's status and his passion for travel and the discovery of new spirits, mainly rums. Don Juancho is present on each of Diplomatico's rums.

Aged for up to eight years, Mantuano is a blend of Column, Batch Kettle and Pot Still rums and made from molasses and sugar cane honeys. It is fantastic when mixed in cocktails, or sipped neat.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Thick, heavy and sweet – like wading through molasses. With some time, black treacle, cherries and Millionaire’s Shortbread come through, wrapped in sweet liquorice and milk chocolate.

Palate

Spicier than expected from the nose, but rich and oily in texture. Cinnamon and nutmeg lead into sharper notes of polished oak before caramel sauce, soft toffees and hints of balancing bitter barrel char.

Finish

Soft and sweet, with herbal hints slowly fading to leave spicy oak.

Comment

Dark and richly flavoured with a texture to match – oily and sticky. The sweetness is tempered by gentle notes of oak and char, making it an excellent easy drinking sipping rum with enough punch to add a rich backbone to a cocktail without getting lost.
