Venezuelan Diplomatico Wins Top Rum Award
Venezuelan rum got a well-deserved accolade recently when Diplomatico's Reserva Exclusiva was voted the second best of 50 rums at a blind tasting in New York City by a selection committee of 21 journalists, bartenders and aficionados.
Blended by a maestro ronero and aged for 12 years in charred white-oak barrels in a place called Miel in the wilds of Lara State, Ron Diplomatico Exclusiva has a rich, warm, buttery flavour of molasses and is perfect for sipping.
The top four rums awarded a double gold medal in the best 50 list were:
1. Vizcaya VXOP (Dominican Republic)
2. Ron Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva (Venezuela)
2. Tortuga 12 years (Cayman Islands)
3. Zaya 12 years (Trinidad & Tobago)
