I’m not big on the millonario line up due to the fact that they are so sweet and I’m pretty sure it would be more apropriate to label them all as spiced rum given how many additives they contain. The 10 year aniversario has muscuvado sugar, cigar leafs and a bit of oak on the nose. The taste is sweet with notes of brown sugar, tobacco and a bit of spicy pepperyness on the short finish. The balance and refinement is a bit off and it’s not spectacular but a fine “starter” rum perhaps.
The 10 year Millonario has some potential with decent flavor profile, but the reality is that it is still a far cry from the superb 15 year Millonario. Nearly impossible to find in the US, but my suggestion is to go with the 15 year or XO if you stumble across this amazing brand from Peru. The 10y Millonario has an amazingly beautiful packaging and a spectacular bottle and label design all the way to a glass cork. Deep dark brown color. Unfortunately strong burn due to only 10y maturing.

Not too expensive and decent quality. Diplomatico is better at similar price in my opinion. This one is a little bit boring after a while.
Údajně peruánský rum italské produkce (Rossi & Rossi). Zcela průměrný, nikam se nerozvíjející, ničím nepřekvapující a drobet přeslazený (ale nikoli nesnesitelně). Obstojně se dá pít (byť ne moc dlouho), ale za krámskou cenu kolem 800 Kč je notně předražený; tak za pětistovku by ještě ušel. Láhev je krom hnusně kýčovité etikety opatřena údajně českým, naprosto samoúčelným skleněným špuntem s plastovým límečkem tak těsným, že se to skoro nedá otevřít (a přinejmenším ten můj šel s každým použitím ven hůř a hůř, takže jsem do toho nakonec vrazil normální poctivý korek).
First, I don't really like very sweet rums and for me they have very limited use, just in or to accompany a dessert. This is a light rum, with citrus in the nose and on the palate, some honey and vanilla. Without the sugar it might have been a pleasant, light rum and I sure appreciate lighter and citrusy rums but all this sugar demands tougher and bolder notes to balance it all out.
With this Millonario not much flavor escapes the sugarcoating and its character collapses completely under this truckload of sugar. It becomes very boring in the end. I would love to try this with 75% (or more) of the sugar gone but as it is this is a waste of time and money.
