Diplomatico make their rums from a blend of distillates from three different stills. Each of these stills make unique types of rum that are then blended to make Diplomatico's core expressions. The Distillery Collection, however, are limited edition bottlings of rums that highlights the individual rums made from these stills. No.1 is a semi-continuous still which produces a bourbon-esque rum - dry and slightly fruity, with vanilla and caramel notes. No.2 is a Barbet column still which makes for a drier, fruitier rum. No.2 is fruity to start with, but then moves into spice and soft vanilla. Both rums are great when sipped on their own. One for rum geeks.
