Diplomatico Ambassador

Diplomatico Ambassador bottle

70cl, 47% ABV

The Diplomatico Ambassador Selection has been created by rum master Tito Cordero, who is only the third in the entire history of DUSA. Crafted solely from heavy pot still rums, this rum is aged in ex-bourbon casks for at least 10 years and then finished for an additional two years in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. Due to its high strength (47% ABV) it does not require chill-filtration,  meaning that the fatty acids which contribute to mouth feel and flavour are not removed, 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.
