The most noteworthy appreciation for the quality of the brand came in October 2011. That’s when Maestro Tito Cordero was awarded the title, the World’s Best Master Blender at the Golden Rum Barrels Awards. He is the first Venezuelan to receive this prominent international recognition.
What's more, the distillery itself won a significant award for its unique production process — the “Rum Barrel Award” in London in 2013 as the World’s Best Rum Distillery.
The History of Diplomatico Exclusiva
Diplomatico Exclusiva has a brilliant backstory that only adds more magic to the flavoursome liquor.
All Diplomatico rums are manufactured in Venezuela, at the DUSA distillery, since the beginning of 1959. The DUSA distillery lies at the foot of the Andes mountains because of the proximity to fresh water and sugar cane fields. Every bottle of rum is produced with local ingredients and according to a special recipe by Maestro Tito Cordero.
The inspiration behind the Diplomatico brand is one man, Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez.
He was a gentleman with a burning passion for rum and extraordinary home reserves. His home bar is a legend in the area. He collected many different bottles of rum that people started calling his collection “The Ambassador's Reserves”. Combine that passion with his curiosity for the rum production process, and you can see why he was the main inspiration for the distillery.
Today, you can see his face on every Diplomatico bottle. In the words of the company, “Diplomático rum is the essence and soul of the man on its label.”
How is Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Rum Made?
Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Rum is the shining star of the Diplomatico brand. According to the bottle literature, is the "Master Blender's crowning achievement." The Master in question is, of course, Tito Cordero.
The rum is a blend of the most exclusive batches of Diplomatico’s finest heavy rums. Each batch that goes into the making of Reserva Exclusiva has undergone between four and six years of ageing. The rum then is delicately distilled in ancient copper pot stills and aged in small oak casks for up to twelve years.
A Review of the Diplomatico Rum
If you’re wondering about the taste of Diplomatico Rum, we prepared a short review that includes the initial tasting notes and finishing touches. The Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is a premium rum with rich aromas and flavours.
The green “stamped” bottle comes in a green canister. Moreover, the “postage stamp” on the label is an original and creative detail — one all Diplomatico fans seem to enjoy. Once you open the corked top, a satisfying “pop” sound signifies the bottle is open.
It’s time to pour a glass.
The smells and aromas of the rum are rich and luxurious. The same is true for the flickering warm colours in the glass. When you take a sip, the first taste in your mouth is caramel. When that simmers down a bit, you will notice accents of nutmeg and walnuts. The flavour of additional spices like vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar, comes a second later.
The Reserva Exclusiva has a lush, creamy sweetness to it. The oak push from the barrel aging complements the other flavours in the rum rather nicely.
Let’s start by saying that the Reserva Exclusiva has a long finish. In the end, you’ll begin to taste cocoa, menthol and ebbing baking spices that linger.
If you haven’t tried this particular bottle of rum by now, you’d probably guess that it features a bit more sweetness than other rums in the category. However, more often than not, people seem to enjoy this characteristic. It makes the Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva rather unique and lavish. Sip it neat or serve it in a beautiful Dark ‘N’ Stormy this rum holds up to your drinking style.
As any liquor that has Maestro Tito Cordero signature on it, the rum’s flavours come through in spades when you taste it. Besides, that’s what high-quality rum is all about.
