Diplomatico Ambassador Selection Tasting Notes and Awards
Pours an impressive, saturated, burnished mahogany colour. Sensuous, mildly prickly aromas open with choc fudge, mocha, brandy cream and fruit cake. Cocoa and mocha accentuate with aeration, with the spicy fruit cake notes returning. The palate is a masterpiece of flavour choreography from start to finish, beginning light, soft and gently spicy, slowly building in concentration, unfolding pulsing spices, intense dried fruits (raisin, date) and liquorice strap while fine tuned acidity provides razor’s edge balance and a sense of elegance. Finishes clean, fresh and dry with a molasses aftertaste followed by a liquorice strap fade that reverberates over twenty minutes, however don’t be surprised if you’re still tasting this after an hour. It stands comfortably along side the top two or three rums we’ve been fortunate enough to experience.
