Jack's pick this month is Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva, a truly exquisite and luxurious smooth sipping rum created at the foot of the Andes Mountains in Venezuela.
A blend of exclusive rum reserves aged for up to 12 years in a variety of cask types. It has rich notes of dark chocolate, coffee, orange peel, spiced fruit cake and liquorice, this is truly a rum to be sipped and savoured.
Family-owned, Diplomático has been producing the highest quality rums from a combination of sugar cane honey and molasses since 1959. Diplomático controls its production process from field to bottle with care for the local environment and people and has been awarded for its sustainable distillery.
Their identity is forged on a commitment to quality and putting passion and heart into crafting exquisite rums. Reserva Exclusiva is created from a blend of 20% light rums and 80% heavy pot still rums, aged in oak casks for up to 12 years. This gives it its rich velvety texture and a moreish quality that makes it the perfect after-dinner sipper.
Enjoy Reserva Exclusiva neat or on the rocks with a small piece of dark chocolate and a slice of orange. The chocolate and orange complement the flavours and textures of the rum as you gradually taste them side by side.
