Launched in London in October, 2011, Ambassador joins the ranks of the best premium rums in the world. The aroma seduces the drinker even before the first sip. Layers of rich chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, dried fruit, baked apple, dark-smoky oak and fine tobacco combine in a finely orchestrated liquid that has to be savored to be appreciated.
There are only a few more days in the year but Ambassador is easily in the list of best new rums of 2011.
To call Ambassador a 'new rum' is certainly incorrect as Tito Cordero has been busy blending components of this rum for several years, but it has only recently been released. Beginning with honeys of the cane, as it is called by the distillery, the fermented wash is distilled in a copper pot still before being refined in a smaller continous still. Over the next decade, the alchemy between wooden casks and the cane alcohol takes place.
Every detail from the wooden case, 18 carat gold closure and writing on the bottle exude luxury. This is one product that didn't disappoint anyone in the room when it was uncorked for the first time in London.
