Three old Scottish column stills stand there in readiness, and here the must obtained from the fermentation process is slowly distilled to extract and concentrate the alcohol into a distillate. Ron Millonario Solera 15 Reserva Especial owes its select aroma and flavour to its painstaking ageing and maturation. The strong, quick hands of the distillery’s very own coopers make casks from American and Slavonian oak. Four rows of the solera system are employed, and after fifteen years of ageing, the enrichment of the rum’s quality is assured. Ron Millonario Solera 15 Reserva Especial, its aroma and flavour come from the north of Peru. A land of abundance, whose earth was once tended and cultivated by the ancient Incas. It is the fruit of the warming rays of the sun, whose every caress raises sugar cane of extraordinary forms, bestowing strength, vigour and flavour that only afterwards can be appreciated in the rum. It is the fruit of quiet dedication, from the hand that sows the seed of the cane to the expert hand that assures its quality. Každá bottle is hand packed in a container of wicker palm toquilla Peruvian women the skills handed down for generations.
Aromas of prune, allspice, dates, nutmeg, cloves, balsam, Demerara sugar and dried-fig build to also show caramel, candied tree fruits, maple, butter toffee and molasses.

All this leads to a solid finish, with lovely balance that articulates in a gentle fade that is rich with excellent palate activity.
