Diplomatico Pot Still Rum
70cl / 47%
Distillery Collection No.3
The third rum in Diplomatico’s Distillery Collection, No. 3 is a full-bodied, complex spirit made using high quality sugar cane honey. Matured in ex-bourbon barrels, this limited-edition rum combines tropical fruit aromas with toffee and vanilla. The palate offers rich oak notes alongside dark chocolate and dried fruits, before a rich, lingering finish full of warm spices.
This rum was made solely in the Copper Pot Still that was brought to Diplomatico’s La Miel distillery in 1959. This discontinuous distillation system was originally used in Scotland to produce whisky. The Distillery Collection showcases the individual distillates behind some of Diplomatico’s world-renowned rums, highlighting the distinct personalities created by using different stills.

Tasting Notes by Ning Heywood (The Whisky Exchange)
Nose: Rich, sweet caramel and leather mingling with raisins and dried mango. Milk chocolate peeks through a layer of honeyed fruits.
Palate: Initially filled with light fruits; bananas, mangoes, maybe even pineapple. There’s a gentle undercurrent of smoke, leading the way for deeper notes of raisins and honeyed-prunes.
Finish: Full of honey and vanilla, alongside rich prunes and dates, while just a hint of banana returns.
