Tasting Notes from the Curator
Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is an elegant and complex sipping rum, carefully crafted from the purest of sugar cane honey. It boasts of a rich golden amber color. On the nose, it is complex and full of character and boasts of maple syrup, orange peel, brown sugar and liquorice. The taste is that of a sweet toffee fudge with an elegant finish.
Best served neat or on the rocks but also works well with sophisticated cocktails such as Old Fashioned which is combined with simple syrup. Angostura bitters, orange zest and ice, garnished with an orange zest twist. You may also try the Sazerac Twist which is this elegant rum combined with Lapsang tea infused Cognac, sugar syrup, Peychaud bitters and coffee infused absinthe.
Although preferably taken as solo, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva can also make a great partner with rich chocolate based desserts.
