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.
Recommendable to most
This rum has aromas similar to the Millonario XO. It's in the same relationship to the Millonario XO as the Zacapa 23 to the Zacapa XO.
The Millonario 15 is younger, cheaper and a simpler alternative to the XO.
It's not as balanced as XO and the aromas of glue/herbs are very dominant. It's sweet and dark in the taste, also very intensive. Of course it's unique, but you have to love this combination of flavors. It's not for everyone.
If you love sweet rums based on molasses, go for it.
Smell: glue, herbs (parsley is very itensive), burned sugar, caramel, fruits in the background (peach, banana, raisins), barrel.
Taste: parsley, sweetness (caramel, peaches), spice, coffee, fruit, vanilla, wood, some glue.
Finish: middle long, sweet dark chocolate with parsley, spice.
Aftertaste: sweetness, then sherry.
Let it in the glas for 30 minutes, then the smell of glue disappears.
Production: Blend, 4-Rows-Solera
Barrel: American white oak & Slavonian oak
Sweetness: 3.5 / 5
Spice: 2.5 / 5
Value (40€): 3/5
Experience level: amateur
What's special: Distilled in three old Scottish column stills. They use their own yeast (don't know which kind).
This rum has never let me down though it's way to sweet, but always brings a smile to my face. Brown sugar caracter and a smoothe spicy finish that evens out the sweetness very nicely. Highly recomended to "first timers" as well.
The Ron Millonario Reserva Especial 15 comes in a nice and a bit retro grass cover. My bottle was hard to open so I ruined the grass top (picture). I would prefer another presentation.
The Ron Millonario Reserva Especial 15 has a dark colour and on the nose you get spice, oak and sweet aromas of toffee and vanilla. I f you let the rum rest in the glass for a few minutes the aromas gets smoother and you don´t sense any sticky alcohol.
The Ron Millonario Reserva Especial 15 tastes sweet toffee and you also taste some fruit, spice and almonds. A lot of different flavours. In the throat this rum is very smooth with some spice and the aftertaste is quite short with some oak, sweetness and spices.
You can drink this rum neat as a sipper but also as a base in cocktails and drinks. A great starter rum for anyone who wants to start a "rumjourney". A very good and price worthy rum but personally I prefer the smoother big brother Ron Millonario XO as a sipper.
This ron is very sweet (for me it's the limit). In the mounth after the sweet taste, we have vanilla, caramel. The bottle is original.
I really like this rum! In fact, it is so good, I was curious to see how it compares to the Millonario XO, so I tried them side be side. They were surprisingly close! Ultimately, the Millonario XO is the better rum, but not by much at all. I rate them nearly the same.
Smells and tastes of a nice peppery spice with a nice sweetness to it. Also includes toffee and cinnamon. Very easy drinking and very good!
sikken dog et dejligt glas, god næse og fløjlsblød rom som gled lige ned, jeg tillod mig at tage et ekstra glas da jeg åbnede flasken. :)
Dont like grass cover so much, but inside is great.
Similar like his older brother XO, which is only a bit deeper and smoother... and much more expensive.
Na první pohled se mě tahle lahev zabalená v proutí moc nelíbila a odrazovalo mě to vlastně i ke koupi, ale nutno dodat že jsem tuto značku neznal, když jsem začínal s rumy. Před touto lahví jsem koupil Ron Millonario XO, který je pro mě top rum....a chtěl jsem poznat jak moc velký rozdíl bude mezi XO a 15. Zkoušel jsem poctivě oba současně několik večerů a výsledek? ...rozdíl ne tak velký, vůně i chuť je jasná stáj Rona milionáře, XO je celkově o trošku výraznější, aromatičtější, kořeněnější.....ale jen o malej kousek, a s ohledem i na pořizovací cenu obou rumů je 15 víc než zajímavá. Dokonce mě začalo bavit i to proutí s tím držáčkem, když tahám několik rumů ze sklepa, tak poutko dobrý:) Lahev má zátku se závitem, ne špunt.
Well over 800 aged dark rums enjoyed and Ron Millonario Reserva Especial 15 year is easily on my Top 10 list after 15 years of tastings. It is superb, so smooth you can't imagine, no burn at all and contains plenty of exciting flavors. Ron Millonario Reserva Especial 15 year is nearly impossible to find in the US, but if you get your hands into one, buy it without hesitation. If you haven't tried yet Ron Millonario Reserva Especial 15 year, I will guarantee it will set a brand new benchmark for your personal rum list.

Tried this at a rum festival and ended up buying a bottle. It's certainly not my favorite for sipping, and haven't found an amazing cocktail for it yet.
