Blended from rums between 2 and 8 years Reserva is a balance of pot and lighter column still rums some of the pot still rums being distilled from honey sugar.
Rich and full on the nose with hints of golden syrup, cinnamon and rich dark sugar. Chocolate velvetiness on the tongue with creamy oak spice and citrus notes balancing the syrupy sweetness. A sweet cocoa caress with shimmering spices.
Diplomatico Mantuano is great served neat, on Ice, or in a twist on the classic Dark and Stormy cocktail. Instead of using Ginger Beer opt for Ginger Ale, which is less firey. You might say more diplomatic. This allows the rum to shine through so you can appreciate the complex , fine flavour Diplomatico are renowned for.
To make this, pour 50ml of Diplomatico Mantuano into a Highball Glass over Ice, squeeze the juice of half a Lime in and pour 120ml of Franklin’s & Son’s Ginger Ale to fill to the top of the glass. If you have them, add 3 dashes of Angostura Bitters, and Garnish with a Fresh Lime Wedge. Enjoy.
