From the Venezuelan Distilerias Unidas comes one of the great rum discoveries of 2008. Full-bodied, complex and so completely different in its nature than known representatives of the country such as Cacique or Ocumare, which would rather like to please by lightness, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva presents itself to the demanding connoisseur. Distilled in copper potstills made of molasses, the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva matures for at least 12 years in selected ex-bourbon barrels. The manufacturer is oriented with these bottlings to the old Venezuelan style with heavy and warm tones, which has given way in recent years to a rather light and pleasing rum style of the country. Through the long maturation, it achieves an incredibly intense body of exceptional balance, perfected by traditional experience and craftsmanship. A truly royal rum! Packaged in a striking and special gift box that resembles a travel suitcase, this rum presents itself from its best side.
