Adam's blurb: The Venezuelans know how to party and this shines through in the way they make thier rum. Diplomatico is a winner right through their entire stable. We have chosen this mid-range expression for its bang for buck and also to share a personal favourite.
Official tasting notes:
Mantuano meaning 'nobleman' is the replacement for "Diplomatico Reserva". Molasses based, it's a blend of column & batch kettle rums combined with 40% heavier pot still rums. Aged for up to eight years, maturation employs x-bourbon and x-single malt whisky barrels. Expect a medium bodied and well rounded rum with notes of dried fruits, oak and vanilla. Ideal for flavourful cocktails.
