Diplomático rum was born in the foothills of the Venezuelan Andes, in the town of La Miel, where the famous DUSA distillery is located, winner of the title of "Best Distillery of Rum in the World" in 2013.

The production of Diplomático Mantuano was started in the late 19th century by the traveller Juancho Nieto Meléndez, who appreciated the artisanal methods used to make rum in Venezuela and the special touch given by the humid climate during ageing. "Mantuano" actually means "gentleman", a reference to Juancho, whose portrait we still find on the label today.

Mantuano is a full-bodied and very aromatic rum, with notes of dried plum, oak and spices. The flavour is balanced, with notes of walnuts, wood and vanilla ending in a broad and pleasant finish. Perfect to enjoy neat or in cocktails such as the Negroni and the Rum Mule.

The name comes from a local title of nobility, and pays homage to the hero Don Juancho, who travelled the world in search of the ultimate and most exquisite liqueurs.

Diplomatico Mantuano

5 /5

Very fine sipping rum for that price.
Definitely an improvement over the Reserva (which i loved, bottle didn't last long). Similar flavor pattern but more molasses and slightly less woody. Smoother and much more full-bodied, a lot less after burn.
Diplomatico rums have something about them that always makes want more ! Don't know if this will last much longer than my bottle of Reserva did.
Great vibe and relaxing buzz.
Great value for money
