RON DIPLOMATICO BLANCO
Reviewed September 16, 2009.
A bright, crystal clear and perfectly polished appearance.
Light but distinct aromas of vanilla oak underpin top notes of heavy cream and a floral perfume.
On the palate it has a wonderfully soft mouthfeel upfront with the mature oak lending a nice supporting structure. The finish is clean and warm.
This rum is quite distinctive and very well put together. A cut above most in this category. This is one of the few white molasses based rums that begs one to allow the flavor to come through in a cocktail. Pour it on!
The packaging is handsome and well done.
