The Rum Howler Top 25 Rums of 2015 – #’s 15 thru 11
Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 14, 2015
The next 5 great rums in my countdown of the Best Rums of 2015 demonstrate a growing trend upon my website. Rums from South America are beginning to dominate the landscape of premium rum. Three of the next five rums are South American, one from Peru (Ron Millonario), one from Colombia (Juan Santos), and one from Guyana (El Dorado). It could be argued that there is a fourth South American Rum on the list as Pusser’s Navy Rum, although blended from rums of various Caribbean countries, receives the lion’s share of its taste characteristic from the giant wooden double pot stills of Demerara Distillers in Guyana, South America as well.
In fact, when I look over my list of top 25 Rums for 2015, over 50% of the rums I have selected are from South America. That’s quite a high percentage considering that 10 years ago I had never even tasted a single rum produced from the southern continent.
Here are the next five wonderful cane spirits in my listing of the Best 25 Rums of 2015:
15) Ron Millonario Solera 15 Reserva Especial
14) Pusser’s 15 Year Old Navy Rum (Nelson’s Blood)
13) Rum Nation Caroni 1998 (Bottled in 2014 @ 55%)
12) Juan Santos 21 Yr Antigua Reserva Rum
11) El Dorado 12 Year Old Special Reserve Rum
