Diplomático Distillery Collection No.1 Batch Kettle Rum 2012 is a limited-edition rum from the Diplomático distillery in Venezuela. It is part of the Distillery Collection, which showcases Diplomático’s three distinctive distillation processes. The Batch Kettle Still was originally used in Canada to produce whisky. This semi-continuous distillation system was then brought to the Diplomático distillery in 1959. Diplomático Distillery Collection No.1 Batch Kettle Rum 2012 aged for 6 years in American white oak barrels that previously held bourbon and Scotch, resulting in a delicious and complex rum with an elegant nose of vanilla, roasted banana, milk chocolate, toffee and cherry. The palate is well-balanced and sweet with notes of caramel, banana, ripe tropical fruits, gentle oak and spicy nutmeg. The finish is soft and sweet.
