Swap Dad’s Whiskey Neats for Diplomático Rum this Father’s Day


If the father figure in your life prefers a whiskey nightcap, listen up. This year, convert them to Diplomático Rum's Reserva Exclusiva – a high-quality spirit at an affordable price. I’d love to send you samples if interested in trying for yourself!

Perfect for enjoying neat, or elevating his favorite cocktail like an Old Fashioned, the Reserva Exclusiva holds similarities to his favorite whiskey in how it’s distilled and its signature smoothness.

A leading super-premium rum worldwide, Diplomático is made from locally-sourced sugar cane and distilled at the foot of the Andes Mountains using a unique system of three styles: column still, batch kettle and pot still. Whiskey lovers take note!

The best choice for Dad? The complex sipping rum, Reserva Exclusiva (40% ABV): 

  • Reserva Exclusiva marries rums of different ages and intensity profiles, including exclusive 12-year old reserves to round off its smoothness. 

  • The balance of heavy and light rums are aged in ex-bourbon and ex-whiskey casks to provide tasting notes of complex fruit and spice, delivering a medley of sweet aromatics including toffee and caramel, balanced with anise and fruity citrus.

From an Old Cuban or an Old Fashioned to a Sazerac, Reserva Exclusiva can be swapped in place of a traditional whiskey to provide a fresh, new spin and rich taste. Are you working on any gift guides or cocktail roundups where Diplomatico may be a fit? 

Reserva Exclusiva is available for purchase at and local liquor stores for an SRP of $39.99. Please see cocktail recipes below, and let me know if I can share any additional information or imagery.
