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.
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 reduces.
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 was upset. I like sweeter rums and this was highly recommended, but was not that smooth and overall not well balanced...
Second attempt was much better...
Väldigt len och precis lagom söt rom som slinker ner väldigt lätt utav att på något sätt bli klen i smaken. Tvärt om en toppenrom med mycket smak av karamell och vanilj. Extra bra betyg pga av vettigt pris. Egentligen 9/10 men pga den tråkiga skruvkorken blir det betyg 8/10
