Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Dégusté en parallèle d'un Centenario 30, il reste légèrement en retrait. Le packaging fera la différence pour certains.
Dans le verre, le liquide est foncé avec des reflets acajou. Le rhum colle au verre et fait des jambes. Le nez est chaleureux et doux : c’est une vraie invitation à la dégustation. La bouche est ronde et opulente. Le chocolat et le caramel sont présents initialement. Puis la vanille et la cannelle s’expriment sur la longueur, avec une légère touche épicée.
The Ron Millonario XO might be the top rum in my collection. Paid $125 and had it shipped to Chicagoland from the UK. To my knowledge, I bought the last bottle. As good as it is, you really can't justify the price. I am a serious rum collector and the top rums (rated by yours truly) in my collection are listed below. Many are a fraction of the price and almost as good. In a blind tasting, any of them could win, including the cheapest one, the $20 a bottle five year old Plantation. No serious rum consumer would ever mix any of these rums with anything. If God drinks, he drinks these rums. If the public every knew how good these rums really are, cognac sales would fall off the map. The aged rums are simply better. There are several hundred rums in my collection, but I am only listing the best of them below. I have attempted to list them by price. I don't drink much these days, but I sniff every bottle, every day. Mortals can only dream about pairing these rums with a limited edition Augusto Reyes cigar. They have some age now and they are wonderful. They are also available in the US. One of the few as good as the real Cubans. Enjoy the journey. Aged rum is nothing less than the history of America in a glass. A cognac glass no less. Like other mass produced products, I don't like anything from Bacardi. I am also not a fan of Appleton or Mount Gay rums. If you want an excellent and low cost rum for mixing, buy the Cruzan from St Croix for $11.

Just got a delivery of this in and it is instantly the best rum in my collection, straight from the first sip.
People have likened it to Zacapa and it is true that it's smooth, caramelly and sweet with a hint of spice. While this is true the sweetness is a lot less over powering. The burn in the mouth and throat is warming and pleasant.
As i'm writing this i'm on my third tasting glass and really can't find fault with it at all, other than the bottle probably won't last very long.
Nå man første gang hælder denne rom op i glasset vil man bemærke de kraftige "gardiner" der er på glasset. XO er både sødere men også kraftigere i smagen end sin lillebror 15'eren.
While not the thickest rum, I have tasted, the taste just lasts and lasts and....
You'll find notes of banana and roasted nuts along with vanilla.
Der skal ikke herske tvivl om at denne rom er lækker. Rigtig lækker.
Når det er sagt, må jeg også sige at jeg havde forventet mere, både i forhold til prisen men også lillebroderen.
Jeg vil personligt hellere drikke og betale for Millonario 15.
Det gør ikke denne rom til en dårlig rom. Min tunge er bare mere til den mindre bror.
Your nose is greeted by a big sweet brown sugar and caramel scent. There are obvious relations to it's younger brother, but the XO offers more fireworks and refinement. The palate is also clearly in relation, but with more instruments playing the band. There are very pleasant notes of caramel, dried fruits, vanilla, roasted nuts, brown sugar and baked banana with a very subtle dryness in the end, fighting to even out the big bodied sweetness. The amounts of added sugar however, seems to overpower most of the palate.
