Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Brugal Extra Viejo Reserva Rum is crafted from a blend of rums aged up to 8 years in former bourbon and whiskey barrels.
This rum is produced by the Brugal distillery in the Dominican Republic. Founded in 1888, to this day the company is still run by the Brugal family.
Smooth rum, very little harsh bite. Possibly a hint of spice, but in not overly flavorful. Slightly rubbery and little aftertaste. In general, kind of a boring rum.
Decent sipping rum. I would say very good for the low price.
As a mixed rum quite ok,...pure i do not like it too much. The smell is boring and alcoholic and the same feeling is continued while sipped.
I do not get what is so "old" about it,...i prefer the not so old three year old havanna club which is even cheaper :)
I would not buy it again though.
BRUGAL Extra viejo is the best of dominican republic. i lovet.. nice taste. One of the best alcohol what i try in my life. I drink only this now :)
Certainly the definition of a fair sipper. Nothing stands out, has very little burn and would be perfect intro to those who would like to start drinking their rum neat or with an ice cube or two.
I had the pleasure of sampling this one on a trip to the Dominican Republic.
The taste is a little off for me with some burn as well. Brugal rums are ok but don't have that "Wow" factor, the extra viejo reserva, included. Somewhat smooth initially then goes down hill from there. For mixing, I would say yes...for enjoying neat I would say you've been cut!
It's ok on the rocks the second or third one but the first one bites hard. Enjoyed it very much mixed.
A rum for cocktails. Good with coke and ice........
Nothing special about this rum. Good with coke and ice.
One of the favourite rum to drink on the ice rocks.
I really love to use this rum for my summer "Cuba libres".
Den er ok. Men jeg syns den er lidt meget spritte, og ikke fardi ud vikled.
Netter Mix-Ron auch zum pur geniessen.
Ein etwas Typischer Dom Rep Turi Ron
Nice mix-Ron also to sip too.

It was an ok rum lacking a lot of the flavors that I would expect. I wish that it had much more to offer. a little bland.
Привезли из Доминиканской республики, очень понравился, жаль что объём был маленький.
Smelled bad, tasted bad. Was a gift from someone that went to the Dominican. I tried it again and let it breathe for over an hour, was drinkable with ice after that.
An good Rum from the Dominican Republic. Been there in the Brugal factory a few years ago. The taste was ok
Decent rum, but the taste is not really to my liking...
Nice bottle of rum to have for when you just want to sip a rum and soda on the veranda. Sweet and smooth, but not something to enjoy straight from a snifter. Will buy it again as a standby for mixed drinks. Not expensive for the quality.
This is what you get when in DR while staying at a resort. Not bad in various mixed drinks.
I tried this 2 Years ago and it was very disgusting. Just bitter, some kind of burnt caramel, chemical spice?? not even with coke. Yak!
The Brugal Rums habe their place and I'm lucky, that they are more and more available in Germany. But they have their problem in the premium segment. After I tasted most of their brand, I have to say that: As long as Brugal it is a great mixe, but as soon as they try to compete to the more sophisticated Rums they loose. Whatever u take, even the expensive ones.
Not bad, nice presentation but for the price I would choise a flor de caña 7, abuelo 7, habana 7 or bacardi 8. So light in nose and taste, i feel i am missing the rum profile here
