Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.......
The best OF rum . i think :) I brought From Dominican Republic. its the best of the best what i drunk :) i love it
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.
Realy good taste. You should try it. Don't suit everyone but I like it.
Good taste, and mixes incredibly well. Alone the flavor isn't anything special but it makes one of the best Cuba Libres I've tasted
Dieser Brugal gehört zu meinen absoluten Lieblings Rumsorten wenn es um Cuba libre geht.
Similar in taste and style to a Ron Zacapa. Hearty oak body with subtle vanilla undertones. An elegant delicacy.
Puur vind ik deze lekker.............................
The extra Viejo is a big step up from the regular.
And there is even better yet with the 1888 or XV, "9's'" in my book.
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
Excellent in mixed drinks. Had lots in Dominican.
Typical vanilla, cocoa, oaky flavours with a hint of spice in the finish. Quite heavy at first, would be great stirred on ice for some kind of Treacle.
absolut der beste rum zum mixen!!(cuba liebre i love you)!! preis leistung absolut super! pur geniesen nein danke!
Hatte die Flasche länger schon im Schrank stehen. Nachdem ich Sie dann geöffnet habe war ich sehr positiv überrascht. Guter Geschmack , gute Qualität.
Light taste like the regular Brugal. There is a bit more wood and caramel in the finish. Very good with sprite.
Excellent with coke or cherry Dr Pepper. Has nice flavour. My top Brugal Rum.
Good rum. I would recommend to try but a little pricey for the taste.
Not as sweet or deep as the upper echelon rums but overall very good. Beautiful dark color with with notes of vanilla and molasses.
Nice bold flavors with a delicate balance of sweetness with a hint of woody notes. Much better enjoyed mixed as opposed to drinking neat. Nice price point for a aged Dominican rum.
Very good, but a little too sweet f
I hoped it would be an upgrade to Brugal Anejo and it does seem to have a thicker body and maybe more aging, but its aged only in ex-bourbon casks not sherry. It’s good but if you’re a regular Brugal drinker the finish feels sort of empty because there is no fruity wine barrel influence that is usually there in other Brugal offerings. Heavier and maybe more sugary than the Anejo, but lacking the full Brugal flavor found in their other better rums.
Had this bottle at Coco Bongo night club. Great experience. Might have been influenced by the great show, but I remember a good tasting rum.
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 !
