Tasting Notes: Ron Diplomatico Blanco


Reviewed September 16, 2009.

Ron Diplomatico Blanco

Ron Diplomatico Blanco

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.

  1. Jim, I think this rum makes you really have to think about drinking a white rum straight up so as to appreciate all its flavours. I’m not sure how successful it will be due to the price point. Hopefully one day it will be available here so that I can drink it on a more regular basis.

    • I agree Bob about the high quality of this rum and it needs little…if anything…to make it better. I loved it with a couple of cubes and a twist of lemon.

      The price/value perception will be a sticking point for some. But I can see high end bars having a very good time with this one.
