un rhum très doux. un gout de caramel, de chocolat et de canelle. franchement il est très bon, parmi les brugal c est le meilleur.


Clasat Rum. One can feel the rich cask taste from the moment the bottle is opened. Aromatic, matured rum, the woody white oak makes its presence felt throughout the sip, taste and aftertaste. Didn' t expect much from it but it really impressed me.

Great rum, luxury looking bottle, nice colour and full spicy tase that heatens your throat a long after swallowing

Way better than its little brother Brugal XO/Extra Viejo. More complex, more balanced. Spicy but not too much, sweet but not too much, on the dryer side while "smooth". At 49$, good quality for the price.

Quite dry and strong, but taste is good. If you like dry rums, this could be for you.

Maybe it's just my personal preference but I like my rums a bit sweeter than this. Otherwise it's enjoyable, just not my thing. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

En ganske god rom ikke nogen fantastisk den er en smule spritet

This is our go to. Excellent at about $55. Very smooth, carmel, with some nutty notes.

Definitely the best rum that is readily available in the states.

molasses. half dry.
vanilla. wood. spice. fruit. in the aftertaste more spicy, although not boring!
as a whole a little too thin in the end. the rest ist really nice, elegant and full of harmony!

Very good sipper, but I prefer sweeter and with more flavour. Beautiful bottle.


Notes of oak and caramel on the nose, more oak and vanilla on the tongue. Dry finish. Good all around, but not really exceptional. Likely there are better options for most people in this price range.

A pleasure to sip. Yes it's a tad dryer than most rums but it doesn't affect the experience of sipping this gem. So smooth with many nutty flavors to enjoy along with cinnamon and brown sugar. Will always find itself on my shelf.

Sophisticated dry Rum. My first in this category. Sort of like a sweet scotch but still a great Rum. A keeper.


rhum doux, qui passe tout seul dans la gorge sans rien bruler mais qui manque de saveur, de caractère. Trop plat. Je note 6 pour le gout et 8 pour la douceur.

A must have !
Complex, deep, sofisticated
Love it

A treat taste, color and after taste... excelent w/ one ice only

What is it good enough to want him to drink more? What better than others? The smell is not attractive. In the taste of alcohol is felt strongly. The finish is not memorized. Dry, rough, expensive.

Not usually a fan of Dominican rums, but this one was easy to drink.

I was excited to try this based on both the price of the bottle and the current RumRatings score. But I really wasn't too impressed.

I like rums that smell and taste like rum. This has a very strong bourbon influence. Smells and tastes of oak, bourbon, and toffee. Maybe a hint of sherry, tobacco and cinnamon as well. A bit too dry for my liking, this rum is just average to me.

Big fan. Great packaging with a metal enclosed cork top. Rich caramel color with a sharp intense nose. Taste is bitter sweet dark chocolate with a smokey peaty finish. Dry and intense flavor. Holds up well with ice.

Love this stuff. Deffinitely a very Unique rum. One of the smoothest rums I have ever placed upon my tongue. No sweetness, this rum is obviously just exactly what it is a pure and natural like it is supposed to be when it comes out of the barrel. No idea how old it is but i would guess that it's a minimum of 12 years old. Dried fruit on the nose, finish has a leathery fruity complexity. I enjoyed it Neat, on the rocks and just for a kick with a splash of coke. All were excellent! Buy a bottle. Speaking of bottle it is really nicely presented, and the cork has a metal cap which is a first for me. Classy stuff right there!!

Ein guter Rum zum akzeptablen Preis. Nicht zu süß, leicht würzig. Langer Abgang

When I first cracked this bottle, the nose instendly reminded me of Cask 16; you Crown lovers will know what I'm talking about. The taste is consistent with the Brugal line up; dry and mildly sweet.
The more I drink and sample rum, the more I develop a like for dry rums. In Addition to the dry there is just a mild spice that compliments the dry well. I would recommend to all who like the dry.

Shout out to bold boss for grabbing me this for me while in Quebec.
Cheers 👊

I'm not a fan of Brugal but this is something different. Its very smooth compared to their Anjeo which really packs a punch and is very dry. It get the Sherry cask aging but its not over done and balances out the dryness adding hints of fruit and sugar. It's a good rum and very much worth trying.
