Easily consumable in a bind
I must say this is a perfect rum for rum Martinis, mojitos or a rum and lemon/soda. I do enjoy a crisp taste in my cocktails and not to sweet. Not essentially a good rum for sipping but excellent for mixing do to the dry and unsweet taste. a believe its a must have in your bar for cocktail making.
But you have to rate a rum on its own. Not compared to something like a heavy sugared molasses heavy sipper. As a nice young white rum I think this is lovely. Nice sugar and molasses, some nice grass and fresh cut lawn. This is my new fave for cocktails. Try it in a Mary pickford. Does lovely.
Plain, no real smell, no real taste.
Alcohol, but not very hard. Dissolved some with coke and then straight.
Try this after an unaged Martiniquan agricole and you will be convinced this is a 3-star rum, not 5.9 or 6

Sometimes if not most the old saying "a good mixer" is meant as a slight to the Rum however given that most Rums are consumed as 'mixers' this matters. This is Dry and clean and sweet and a great mixer as well as its affordable. Can't go wrong......
Enjoyed a bottle of Brugal Especial Extra Dry while vacationing in Malta. Very boring and cheap looking bottle and label design. Pure alcohol to the nose and palate. Mix it with your favorite soda and down it goes.
Again I might be biased because I love Dominican rum but if you find a better white rum for thoose cocktails I mentioned...call me ;-)
Sip it with a little ice and water. Blackbeard style! A'rrrrr!!!!
To abvish nose. Little vanilla in nose too. Gentle start but harsh body immediately. Some vanilla and little smokiness and too much abvish slowly fades out in long aftertaste. More suitable for cocktails or other long drinks...
"via Rum Connection"
Overall the rum is very sweet smelling and slightly floral. Their is a little of the Spanish/Hispanic style “tobacco” like notes.
"The rum is pretty pleasant nice and sweet with very little burn and it is quite smooth by mixing rum standards. The finish is fairly short but it is still quite enjoyable."
