A new diplomat
PX-finished, 12 years of ageing, non-chill-filtered... you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped into single malt territory here. Ambassador Selection launched today, the new, top of the range rum from Diplomático - the Venezuelan distillery’s first 'ultra-premium' offering.
After the 100% pot still rums do their time in ex-Bourbon casks they’re transferred to Pedro Ximenez casks for their final two years.
'The creation of Ambassador Selection has taken many years but we are very pleased with the new addition to our family,' said Diplomático's rum master, Tito Cordero. 'Our current Reserva Exclusiva is a very well loved, smooth and complex blend and we always wanted to build on this.'47% abv. ±£200. Speciality Brands, 020 8838 9367
