Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Excellent in mixed drinks. Had lots in Dominican.
J'adore le Brugal, il me rappelle mes années aux Club Med. Je m'évadais avec une bouteille de rhum, un litre d'eau, un gros sandwich, un livre et mon Hamac. Je me trouvais 2 palmiers au dessus de l'eau et il était bien plus facile d'entrer dans le hamac que d'en sortir au coucher de soleil. Le goût est simple mais savoureux. Straight up de la bouteille, il ne me manquait qu'une patch sur oeil et un perroquet. Arr !
I lived in Miami for a decade and a half and met many who insisted Brugal was the best rum compared to Barcardi and Havana club. Each claimed to be the best made in the Carribbean but buying bottles of each and hosting our own taste-tests party with nationals of different Carribbean nations proved the best for mixers was Brugal, the best on the rocks was Barcardi.
Brugal Extra Viejo, aged eight years or more, is my personal favorite. In the Dominican Republic you can get a bottle for less than five US dollars. Of course it costs more in the US but for me it is worth it.
If you are fortunate to cruise the Carribbean, Porta Plata is a common port stop. There you can visit a Brugal distillery. It does include free samples at the end of its short tour. That experience is excellent to determine which Brugal variety taste best for you. You can bring back five bottles with the first being duty free. Going through customs has always been easy; they don't bother to charge you the extra 20 cents per bottle (bottles 2 through 5). I have always been waived through.
Drinking it straight brings out its smooth taste. A caramel-like taste is an often heard assessment. The aroma is also light as you might expect from good rum.
I do like the other aforementioned rums but when I look forward to a great rum mix, I always look for Brugal.
al saber que en la familia brugal cuentan con una nueva generacion de maestros roneros me encanto la idea de una mujer pertenezca a ese circulo cero y le aporta una nueva dimension a este ron de tradicion un ron ligero a carta cabal
For a rum made for mixing this one us pretty boring. It doesnt bring anything else than the cheal alcohol taste. You're probably better off with another kind of rum
Not bad, and while I prefer to sip my rhums, if I need some to mix, I choose this one, as it is not on par with other on the same price range. Not complex, not particularly pleasing.
Pas mal, et même si je préfère déguster mes rhums nature, si j'ai besoin d'un rhum pour un cocktail, je choisis celui-ci, car il n'est pas à la hauteur d'autres dans la même gamme de prix. Pas complexe, pas particulièrement agréable.
Buen ron, se puede mezclar con otras bebidas. Color oscuro, aroma frutado.
My review is for the black label bottling.
This is a decent spanish style aged rum, good for highballs or for rocks sipping.
A lot of wood influence, i don't feel a great distance between Anejo and Extra Viejo, and the price is similar too.
Choose the Anejo, very near at a lower cost.
They could bottle it with more than 38%/76 proof, for that price.
I believe that this has been discontinued (in Italy i can't find it anymore) and replaced with the XV.
Flavor for a long night drinking, and a no so bad hangover the next day
Light taste like the regular Brugal. There is a bit more wood and caramel in the finish. Very good with sprite.
Puur vind ik deze lekker.............................
Excellent with coke or cherry Dr Pepper. Has nice flavour. My top Brugal Rum.
Rum piuttosto piatto con evolutività inesistente. E un monosapore che ricorda la canna da zucchero e il caramello. Finale blando e poco gradevole.
Lo dicho es un ron que me gusta mucho para combinados y al ser fácil encontrarlo en bares suele ser mi principal opción.
Bon rhum de mix. Et pour faire des cocktails.........
À venir prochainement.............................
This is one of the free rum at our resort. Liked it more then the Brugal Añejo Reserva which was the other choice. Like the other one it is the alcohol that hits you first. Good for beach drinks.
Bon rhum mais en cocktail car sec il n'a pas d'intérêt. Goût de caramel.
Realy good taste. You should try it. Don't suit everyone but I like it.
Rum dal gusto amabile e dolce secondo me il migliore da miscelare con la coca cola
Disappointing. Definite mixer rum. Bit watered down for my liking.
I know this is not the most expensive, however we all know pallet in individual and this is one of my favourites on the rocks. its very dry and has a lovely flavour that means many can be consumed over an evening.......
