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 Reserve Blanco rum is lightly aged and then filtered to attain the clarity of spirit. It is said to be one of the few silver rums that can be sipped.

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute called the rum "Super smooth." Then in 2013, "amazingly clean and elegant." 

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 really excellent and delightful rum. A real stand-out, not among just blancos but aged ones. Granted, a touch pricey for a rum, but well worth it if you want quality.
