Diplomatico Rum

Diplomatico Rum

"Venezuela is one of the great rum-producing nations and Diplomatico is recognised as being one of its top distillers. These award-winning rums are soft and sweet with layers of ripe fruits."
DAVE BROOM
~

"Venezuelan rums are fast becoming the rum of choice for some Rum connoisseurs world wide, with Diplomatico being at the forefront. The jewel in the crown is the Reserva Exclusiva, with its vanilla, cocoa and toffee aroma and raisins, brown spices with toffee and banana palate. If you love Banoffi pie, then this is the rum for you."

Trois Rivières Rum

Trois Rivières Rum

"Made from cane juice rather than molasses, rum Agricole from Martinique has a finesse and structure which makes it the Caribbean equivalent of fine Cognac. The elegant rums of Trois Rivières with their spicy character and subtle depth are rightly considered as among the island's very best."
DAVE BROOM
~

"Trois Rivières is rum that oozes quality. Typical of the Martinique style of aged rum, it is regularly compared to some of the finest cognacs in the world. The rums have aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, citrus and banana, and a long finish on the palate with a woody warmth reminiscent of a warm Caribbean evening."
