Rums in Ybor City

Ever hear of Ron Millionario? Me either, until last year, when it appeared with great presence at the Polished Palate International Rum Festival. It tied with Ron Zacapa as the best in category, rums aged 15 years or more.

This past weekend, the Peruvian sugar cane spirit took best of show at the 2009 event (full results here), one of about 60 spirits tasted. I'll share tasting notes in a day or so, but if you like the rich, nutty, almost candy-like aged Central and South American rums, distinctly different creatures compared to those from the Caribbean, then check it out.
