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.
You not go past this bottle. Simply sweet and smooth. Rich toffee flavour, caramel,... excellent to enjoy in a bar after dinner.
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.
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!
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.
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.
