Taking the place of Diplomático Blanco, Diplomático Planas is made with Venezuelan rum which has been aged for six years before being charcoal filtered to remove its colour. This allows it to be used in cocktails where altering the drink's hue would be unwelcome, but continuing to give it those yummy aged rum flavours.
Nose: Vanilla rich, with hints of fresh coconut, lemon and black tea.
Palate: Chewy toffee and funky grass notes, with a lingering spiciness of fresh chilli.
Finish: Drying peppery spice and a hint of juicy apricot.
