- ABV 47%
The Barbet Column distillation system, originally created in France was brought to Venezuela the same year as the Batch Kettle - 1959. The still is made of 100% copper, aiding the elimination of undesirable compounds which form during the fermentation process. Aged in x Bourbon barrels and produced from high quality sugar cane molasses, the Barbet Column typically produces a distillate with a strong fruity profile.
Tasting note: [Batch 3 tasted] Slightly lighter in colour and on the nose than the No.1, this seems all round softer and better structured; almost floral with distant citrus blossom and fresh honey notes over deeper, richer scents of vanilla cream and dried tropical fruits, especially banana. Fabulous mouthfeel, with a viscous, semi sweet entry, building with fanning spices towards a perfectly balanced finish. Raw sugar, cinnamon, light liquorice and dried banana late in the creamy, long and delicately spiced aftertaste. Great rum. You\'d expect this to be reserved for something special. 5000 bottles. 47% Alc./Vol. Very limited stocks.
The Barbet Column Still was brought to Diplomático’s La Miel distillery in 1959. This continuous distillation system is originally from France.
The Barbet rum is produced from sugar cane molasses and aged in American white oak barrels, that previously served to age bourbon and whisky, for 4 years.
It reveals tropical fruit aromas and toasted oak notes, providing a distinctive and well-balanced bouquet.
Slightly dry on the palate with delicate wood and fresh citrus fruit flavors that combine for a pleasant, long-lasting finish.
Neat or on the rocks.
