Solera Gran Reserva 15 yo Mexican rum
El Ron Prohibido 15 Solera has a rich bronze colour. The number 15 represents the maximum age of the spirit in the solera system.
El Ron Prohibido 15 Solera is little more on the sweet side from the ageing in the Raisin Wine Cask. This sweetness comes across balanced and makes this rum a pleasure to sip and ensure the flavour complexities.
In the mouth, you get lush caramel toffee intertwined with raisin, dates and prune flavours. There is just enough oak to give the rum a spiciness to help balance the flavours. Dark tobacco, menthol and a light touch of coffee and chocolate complete the flavour profile.
Adding a couple of cubes of ice can help to reduce the sweetness slightly, and this brings out wonderful aromas of baking spices, oak spice and raisins. One could say this rum is styled as a dessert, best consumed in smaller portions.
