Recommendable to most
Though I definitely prefer the Millonario XO and the 15 year to this, this still deserves a great rating.
This is very fruity (raisin and plum), with a little less peppery spice than the 15 year. Nicely sweet, with a taste of toffee and cinnamon.
Sultans, sweet fruits like plum or apricot, tip of vanilla, chocolate... Mild even if 50%. Full taste, intensive, great aroma. Very good for me.
The 10 year Millonario Cincuenta (50%) for a higher 100 Proof bottling has some potential with very nice 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 Cincuenta has an amazingly beautiful packaging and a spectacular bottle and label design all the way to a glass cork. Very deep dark brown color. Aniseed and liquorice to the nose and palate. Unfortunately some strong burn due to only 10y maturing. How nice would this be after 20 years of maturing.

The 10y Cincuenta has an amazingly beautiful packaging and a spectacular bottle and label design all the way to a glass cork. Very deep dark brown color.
Sweet fruits, caramel, little chocolate, some vanilla. Strong at first but becomes more mild after you let it hang in the mouth. Intense, pretty complex taste. Very nice coulour, dark amber, also beautiful packaging. High proof 50%. In enjoyed it but there are other brands I preffer. Although good rum.
Smells of spirit, but taste like heaven. It really explodes in your mouth with lots of flavour, and it hangs in your mouth for a long time.
Der starke Zwillingsbruder des Aniversario Reserva 10-Year.
Sattes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase (etwas zuwarten, Luft tut diesem Rum gut) leckere Düfte von Fässern die soeben getoastet und mit Schokolade übergossen worden sind.
Im Gaumen ein mundfüllender, kräftiger Auftritt. Mit dunkler Schokolade überzogene Karamellstangen mit Pfeffer garniert. Sehr lecker, du willst mehr !
Im Abgang lang nach Karamell.
Ein gutgemachter high proof Rum der jedem "Cuba libre" ein gewisses Plus verleiht. Auch zum pur geniessen. 7+
The strong twin brother of the Aniversario Reserva 10-Year.
Rich amber in the glass.
In the nose (wait a little, air does this rum good) delicious scents of barrels just toasted and covered with chocolate.
In the palate a mouth filling, strong appearance. Caramel sticks covered with dark chocolate and garnished with pepper. Very tasty, you want more!
In the finish long after caramel.
A well made high proof rum which gives every "Cuba libre" a certain plus. Also to enjoy on its own. 7+
