Diplomático Planas Aged Sipping Rum
An extraordinary blend of pot still, column and batch kettle rums, Diplomático Planas is made with Venezuelan rum which has been barrel-aged for six years before being charcoal filtered to remove its colour. This allows it to be used in cocktails where altering the drink's hue would be unwelcome, but continuing to give it those yummy aged rum flavours. Vanilla hits your nose first with hints of fresh coconut, lemon and black tea to follow. On the palate is chewy toffee and funky grass notes, with a lingering spiciness of fresh chilli. A drying peppery spice on the finish with just a hint of juicy apricot.
Diplomático began in Venezuela in 1959, with the establishment of the distillery where all of its rums are produced. A group of Venezuelan entrepreneurs, most of them with extensive experience in the spirits industry, believed in the potential of this company. Today Diplomático is distributed in over 80 countries. It holds the “Ron de Venezuela” DOC (Protected Denomination of Origin) and is recognized as one of the finest rums in the world.
