Diplomático unveiling 2 aged rums in U.S. markets

Diplomático, the Venezuelan rum brand, has announced the launch of two new expressions,  Mantuano and Planas. They are aged for up to eight and six years, respectively.

The two newcomers are part of Diplomático's new Tradition Range, which includes the brand’s flagship Reserva Exclusiva bottling, a sipping rum aged in small oak casks for up to 12 years.

Planas, bottled at 47% abv (94 proof), is a blended white rum distilled in pot stills. It is named after the Planas Valley, where the Diplomático distillery is located. Mantuana, bottled at 40% abv (80 proof), translates as "local man." It is inspired by Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez, the 19th Century character that inspired the creation of Diplomático. It is a blended rum aged in white oak casks that previously held Bourbon and malt whiskey. It is a combination of column, batch kettle and pot still distillates created from sugar cane molasses and honey.

They will begin showing up in various U.S. markets in mid-February. Mantuano will carry a suggested retail price of  $24, and Planas $29.
