Diplomatico Vintage 2001

Diplomatico Vintage 2001 bottle

70cl, 43% ABV

Diplomatico Vintage is a limited edition created by Master Blender Tito Cordero and the result of blending carefully selected reserves laid down in the year 2001. During this year, a number of factors contributed to rare conditions for sugar cane growth. High daily temperature variations, high humidity and lower than average rainfall all contributed to one of the best sugar cane harvests ever seen. In choosing the reserves to blend for this limited release Tito was careful to choose rums with a very distinct character. Aged for 12 years in American oak ex-bourbon barrels and finished for a further year in Spanish sherry wood, these rums were some of the finest in The Diplomatico cellars.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Very rich and appealing off the bat, with sticky dates, ripe banana, sweet spice and sugared pastries.

Palate

Exceptionally soft mouthfeel, with dried fruit drenched in syrup and honey, mixed nuts, soft caramel, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Finish

Long lasting; the chewy toffee and cinnamon linger.

Comment

A rich, crowd-pleasing rum that is impossible to dislike.
