The origins of Diplomatico Rum date back to the late eighteenth century to a man named Don Juancho Nieto Melendez, an enthusiastic traveler and connoisseur of fine beverages. He traveled the world studying the sources and production methods used to create artisanal spirits, then used this knowledge to develop his own premium rum.

The year 2002 is one of Venezuela's best sugarcane harvests in recent years. High daily temperature and humidity combined with lower than average rainfall created ideal growing conditions in which the sugarcane flourished. Deep golden amber in color, Diplomatico Single Vintage 2002 Sherry Cask Finished Venezuelan Rum offers enticing aromas of vanilla, buttery fudge and candied fruit combined with notes of tobacco leaf, spice and sugarcane. The full-bodied palate is rich and silky with complex notes of caramel, dark chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, honey and dried apricot. Hints of tobacco, clove and cinnamon lingers through the long finish.

Made to celebrate 100 years of rum making, this is a spirit to savor. It’s made from a blend of rums aged from eight up to 30 years in American whiskey barrels. The unusually deep caramel hue advertises the powerful flavors: crème brûlée, lingering and kaleidoscopic notes of coffee bean, caramel, cola, muted gingerbread spices and just a mere hint of sweetness.

Rich and concentrated, this is a blend of rums aged up to 12 years, then aged an additional two years in former PX Sherry casks. The end result is luxurious, thick in caramel, toffee and gingerbread flavors that finish long and elegant, with clove, allspice, dry cocoa, leather and orange peel accents. It sips beautifully.
