Really tasty one, not for everyone, but for all like me, who likes more sweet rums :)
Strength - 6/10
Sweetness - 9.4/10
Chosen because it was N°1 in the Rum Howler listings and did not disappoint.
Smooth with a very complex taste. Sweet, but not as much as some others and with not so much body, lighter but at the same time with an intense taste.
Maybe my description is not the best.
For me well one of the greatest ever.
I drank it several times, for the first time with DiplomaticoAmbasador, but then it was to his detriment (another league). But when I compare it individually, it is a famous rum with its strength and distinctive pleasant taste.
Very smooth and a lovely aroma and taste. One of the best rums I have ever tasted. I drank the Reserva Especial 15 before and enjoyed both straight or mixed but the XO was so much better.
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.

Thought rums like Diplomatico and Plantation XO were as good as it got, but this was another level. So smooth it should come with a warning.
Strong smell with a touch of tar. Very smokey and intense initial taste. Followed by sweeter vanilla and dried fruits that lingers forever.
No.This one is better. Aroma-vanilla,dark brown sugar+cinnamon.
Taste-sweet/raisin,figs/but just a little bit with perfect harmony with the heat of oak spice.
