Proof66 Notes

The Diplomatico rums stem from the work of Don Juancho Nieto Melendez, who researched several different regions and studied their production methods. The result was "Ron Diplomatico," which appears to have first been produced in the 1890s. In the modern day, the rums are offered in several different expression and this is the Ambassador Selection Cask Strength--the latter a reference to the relatively higher proof (94) of the bottling (the typical being 80). It is a premium offering first released in 2011 that they promise is "warming and powerful." It is the special creation of their rum master Tito Corder aged for at least 12 years. It is aged in a combination of American oak and Spanish sherry casks, similar to several styles of scotch. It contains no additives of any kind, which is slightly unusual in the rum business, which allows for slight additions to improve flavor.

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute called it "boisterous, over-the-top fruity," and "very wood driven."

Formerly named Licorerias Unidas, Distelerias Unidas (DUSA) is the major Venezuelan rum producer that has had a number of owners since the 1950s going from Seagram's (now gone), to Diageo, to Pernod Ricard, until local investors purchased the assets of the company in 2002 and established Distelerias Unidas. They take great pride in the unique soil and weather conditions of Venezuela creating "high sucrose" sugar cane.
