Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Brugal Anejo rum is a blend of rums aged 3 to 5 years in used American white Oak barrels that previously held whiskey and bourbon.
The rum is produced in the Dominican Republic by Brugal & Co., a company that was founded in the late 1800s by the Spaniard Andrés Brugal Montaner. Today, the Brugal rum company remains largely in the control of Montaner's direct descendants.
This is a solid rum, preferably for drinks that require a dynamite rum that can "show through". This rum gives you the sense of a fine Caribbean rum, but doesn't quite have the age required to bring it to the levels of the island sippers.
For the money not to shabby and not overly sweet. Neat it's slightly neutral with clean light oak supplemented by subtle vanilla and caramel without being edgy, but it's obviously meant for mixing. Makes for a good cheap cocktail base.
Never liked this rum, not even for mixing. It's harsh and lacks flavor. Will not buy it again (life's too short to drink bad rum...)
I really expected more from this rum, the taste is fade and there is not a real follow up in the aftertaste, it lacks fullness and persistance.
Very classic Caribbean rum with the usual flavours
I highly recommend this bottle. For straight shots its great, also its amazing with coke if straight up is not your thing. All around one of my favorites always have a few bottles on deck. Can't beat the price point for the quality around here.
Brugal Añejo is very easy to drink for me. I´d like to reccomend it for its price.
Ότι λέει ο τίτλος ........ δε χρειάζεται να μπεις σε λεπτομέρειες .........
Not much to say really. I could be biased from drinking this rum in cold rum n'cokes in late night merengue clubs over in DR but then I could also have an incredible taste ;-)
Sip it with a little ice and a splash of water. Add honey if you want.
Brugal Añejo rum from the Dominican Republic - in the perhaps updated version, with the more-blue label appearing as in photos from other commenters - is to my taste very pleasant, smooth, drinkable, a bit towards the elegantly dry side as Brugal suggests, without harshness as is sometimes found in rums of this modest price level. Not as distinguished in flavouring as others, but to me very drinkable on its own without mixing. Not sure about the fishnet on the bottle LOL
Easy going vanilla aroma. Some smokiness and strong abv part which fades out a bit through long aftertaste. Would not be my preferred choice for easy drinking in the evening... too harsh...
I expected more. It has really nice odor, but it tastes like flour or vanilla then the real rum tastes kicks in, but it is kind of strong and heavy. You can get easily get drunk with that if you are not too careful. I'm a bit disappointed, because on the same price or even lower you can get twice better Rum than that. I'm really not sure how to feel about this. It may be a great taste if your only rum so far is bacardi.
Niet echt mijn ding, in de mix een aparte geur en de smaak vind ik een beetje te flets..gelukkig niet al te zoet..misschien na een paar mixjes wat positiever😃
Lovely on the nose of caramel and sugar but a bit harsh on the palette and not the best finish
Wyjazd na Dominikanę spowodował. że zakochałem się w tym rumie. Bardzo przyjemny w smaku. Świetnie sprawdza się w drinkach. Nie sądziłem, że zdobędzie me serce. W relacji jakość/cena niesamowicie się wyróżnia. Ładny kolor, w zapachu czuć delikatną gładkość przenikającą w coś mocniejszego. Jak dla mnie silna 7 przez dobre wspomnienia jakie kojarzą mi się z tym rumem. Namawiam każdego, kto ma ochotę na rozpoczęcie drogi z rumem na kupienie go w pierwszej kolejności.
A friend carried it in his luggage all the way back from Margarita island, never really got into understanding why, guess it must have to do with some sentimental stuff...
The rum itself is quite mediocre...
Nothing really special about it.
A blend of oak and molasses, with the former overpowering the latter a bit too much. Went back and forth between a 4 and 5, finally ending at a 4.5 on my chart, but can't rate it like that here.
Slight tastes of vanilla and caramel without being overly sweet. Could drink straight but recommend drinking with cola. Good value
God rom til cola og drinks. ikke så sød som havana Club 7
Nice, warming (but no burn), oak tastes. Drank this neat on a night out when there wasn't much else behind the bar, perfectly acceptable rum
Found this in South Korea (land of no rum) and was excited to try something new. I will forever remember the taste of this... Plasticy.
rougher, little woody, price-quality ratio is good, sweetish flavor changing bitterness
Was expecting something dry.. but this is sweet and full of fruit flavors...works great as a sipper or with coke... will keep a bottle around and looking forward to trying other Brugal rums
