Diplomatico Planas Rum is an emblematic expression of Venezuelan rum-craft, marrying innovation with age-old tradition. Produced by the revered Distilerías Unidas S.A, this white rum is aged for up to 6 years in American white oak barrels and then charcoal-filtered to remove its color while retaining its complexities. Boasting an unusually high ABV of 47%, this rum manages to be both robust and smooth, fulfilling the expectations of even the most discerning rum connoisseur. Third Base Market & Spirits is delighted to feature this eloquent, tropical spirit for those looking to experience the pinnacle of Latin American distillation.
The rum showcases a pristine, clear appearance that initially belies its rich, aged origins but hints at its clean, filtered profile.

Your first sip reveals a symphony of flavors. There is an immediate encounter with sweetness—think caramel and sugar cane—that rapidly transitions to a landscape of tropical fruits. The texture is silken, a nod to its aging process, yet invigorated by its elevated alcohol content. Mild spice and oaky nuances emerge mid-palate, acting as balancing agents to its inherent sweetness.
The finish is remarkably clean and crisp, leaving behind a warm sensation and a lingering sweetness. Subtle notes of vanilla and citrus make a late appearance, bringing a satisfying conclusion to this intricate experience.
Diplomatico Planas Rum is versatile in its pairings. It is a stand-alone sipper for those who want to experience the layers of its character, but it is also an ideal candidate for premium cocktails. Pair it with light appetizers or seafood dishes to accentuate its tropical nature.
