Diplomatico Distillery Collection No.2 Barbet Rum (700ml)
Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 2 Barbet Rum is the one of two limited editions in the first release of the Distillery Collection, showcasing the diverse variety of stills and styles used to create the Diplomatico rum range.
The Barbet Column Still was brought to Diplomático’s La Miel distillery in 1959. This continuous distillation system is originally from France. This system consists of two columns: the Aldehyde Column, in which the undesired elements are separated from the rest of the liquid, and the Rectifying Column where only the desired elements are kept. This rectification system is not found in other traditional column systems. It is unique to this design and is what gives the characteristic fruity profile to the distillate obtained.
Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 2 Barbet Rum is aged in American white oak barrels (ex bourbon, ex malt) with ageing up to 4 years. The blend profile is 100% light rums.
The nose reveals tropical fruit aromas well balanced by toasted oak notes, providing a distinctive bouquet.
