Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ron Millonario Reserva Especial 15 rum is created from molasses using a 1930's Scottish column still and aged in American and Slavonian oak casks up to 15 years using the solera blending method.
The Ron Millonario company was founded in 1950, and in 2004 was purchased by the Italian Fabio Rossi.
Like others, I also found the taste a bit sweet. Beautiful dark color, and I can taste the caramel and vanilla. Quite smooth.
I dont understand the 9 and 10 reviews here, but maeby my bottle is from a lesser year? (it is 6/7 years old)
Really cool cask by the way - very different.
A Peruvian Solera style rum. Filling the glass from an excellent presented bottle shows a dark Amber/burned caramel color.
Smells of sweet molasses, burned sugar and some notes of sherry. It has a very sweet, oily, creamy kind of texture in the mouth and a taste burned sugar with Little oak and spicy dryness.
Although a very sweet rum, not surprising with the amount of added sugar according to hydro test, it is very smooth with complex notes and à nice finish. It's moorish.
I was a little disappointed when I tasted it for the first time. Quite sweet with wood & chocolate in your face. But after some sips it elevates with a more complex aroma, especially in the aftertaste. Great rum, but I'm looking forward to have the 10 years version, which is not made as a Solera.
Meget rig duft med både karamel, farin, lakrids og krydderier. Smagen er sødmefuld og i balance duften.
Meget imponerende af en så ung rom, og særdeleshed til prisen. Om man så er til "indpakningen" er så et spg., men jeg synes nok, at skruelåget virker lidt billigt.
Mildly sweet rum with a bit of a grass hidden in there, finish goes a bit into the coffee. Nothing special however, it is decent but you can go better.
Millonario 15y is too sweet for me... a little bit similar to Riise rums. This rum is good to try but not ideal for whole evening drinking..
C'est le genre de rhum que l'on doit posséder. Puissant avec de la rondeur, vanillé à souhait. Un régal. A classer dans la gamme des Angostura 1919, Dos Madeiros PX 5+5...
I know it's sweet but every time I have a sip it surprises me a little bit. It's more complex than I expect. I would choose this over Zacapa. They are both sugar bombs but this one still has some character that hasn't been lost in a giant corporations quality control process.
Obviously not so great as XO (more sweet and alcohol taste) but still decent and in the price range great.
Decent, not fantastic. Imported from old rating scratchpad
Sweet rum with a strong treacle flavour leading, the nose is brilliant perhaps the best I have smelt. Packaging is interesting but awkward the handle is apt to catch on other bottles. Mixing with cola (Yes I did it) reduces this to parity with cheaper rums its really made to be sipped over ice . Recommended
- der har gode krydrede og søde noter - uden på nogen måde at virke kraftif.
This rum is very easy to drink. Not as good as the "big brother". But still tasty. Good value for money.
A little too sweet for me. It's a full body thick rum. Very smooth
A little sweeter on my taste, but partly balanced by not feeling another distinct flavour.
Nose: fresh fruits, candied orange, hints of marzipan, sweetness all over it and a bit of alcoholic freshness
Taste: forest honey, liquorice, very sweet
Finish: Sweetness is all that stays
I like the quite complex fruity bouquet but on the palate the heavy sweetness buries it all.
Chuť i vůně dobrá, ale tím uzávěrem to posrali! Klasický špunt prosím!
Belle surprise par sa tonicité ! Les arômes sont nombreuses ( vanille, miel, ...) et je retrouve un côté un peu végétal.. à découvrir...
Havde nok forventet noget mere.
Den er ok, men heller ikke mere, sød, krydret.
God smag og altid i toppen ved blindtest
Very sweet but a good spiciness behind it that balances it out. A good rum, but can't keep up with its older brother Ron Millonario XO, which is richer in complexity and a longer aftertaste.
Sweet-spicy, flavor of cores, moderately soft, but delicious. Bottle exotic. But it disappointed me plain screw cap.
