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 Diplomatico Anejo rum is alternatively described as either a dark or a gold rum. They say it "characterizes the essence of the Caribbean" with its "soft bouquet."

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.

A very nice rum for the money. Our choice for use as a casual mixer. Well made and well worth the money. Usually any rum under $15 is scary and tastes like fuel oil. This on the other hand is excellent for the money.
