Diplomático has unveiled the latest addition to its Prestige range, the 2007 Single Vintage rum. The collection is made up of the Venezuelan brand’s Ambassador Selection and Single Vintages from the years 1997, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005.
Aged for 12 years mainly in ex-bourbon barrels and single malt whisky casks, the Diplomático 2007 Single Vintage is finished for one extra year in fine Oloroso sherry casks. It opens with “harmonious notes of ripe red fruits accompanied with aromas of vanilla, spices and chocolate that provide a delicate and subtle aromatic balance,” said master blender Nelson Hernandez. “Sweet notes of ripe fruit, wood, chocolate and coffee are perceived on the palate, adding a composed roundness and smoothness that leads to a long-lasting and velvety finish.”
The brand recommends enjoying it neat and accompanied with a piece of premium dark chocolate.
The rum joins the Vintage collection, which features bottlings that master blenders set aside because they have been matured in a “unique or extraordinary way.”
Beginning at the end of October, Diplomático 2007 Single Vintage rum will be available to the trade and specialist retailers, and is priced at £105 ($117 USD).
