Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Expected more. Going to DR in 2 weeks waned to sample a local but this is thin not flavor I expected. Will try the better if I can
A little harsh on the nose with molasses and caramel. It's 37.5% abv...feels and taste that way. Initial taste, swift unwanted volatile compounds with an impact of caramel, citrus peel and oak, finishing in peppery oak spice. I think it would be helpful distilling it one more time before aging and bottle it at 40% abv. Besides that, average aged rum.
Perhaps they meant to type "BRUTAL" on the labels and just went with it. If I ever need to chlorophorm someone in a pinch, this might work if it doesn't kill them.
Rien de particulier dans cette bouteille. L'alcool prend vraiment le dessus sur un petit côté boisé pourtant pas désagréable. Bien en cocktail.
For a rum made for mixing this one us pretty boring. It doesnt bring anything else than the cheal alcohol taste. You're probably better off with another kind of rum
Theres nothing i like about this rum , i find it tasteless snd dry even with coke. Sorry i guess im not a fan of Brugal
Okay...I had to knock a few points off just for the aroma. Reminds me of paint thinner. Sorry, but it does.
Tasting it....one word....harsh...has a weird flavor to it that just seems...well...off...
Tastes as if the wood particles weren't filtered....
Supposed to be "extra old" but exhibits no such aging...
A little sweetness but has some noticeable bitterness that is displeasing...
Not...I repeat...NOT a sipping rum...
I don't know...maybe I got a bottle from a bad batch but I really cannot recommend this for anything but for mixers calling for harsh rum. Not my first, second, or third choice. There are much better rums for the price.
Excellent in mixed drinks. Had lots in Dominican.
It's not thé worst, of thé best. Just ok for it's price a
Cheap good for coctails, without depth, better than bacardi, captain morgan. But on the other hand for that price I think Jameson whiskey is better way to go...
Final verdict: Maybe some day I will giv it another shot
Seriously, did they catch these bottles swimming in an enchanted swimming hole in the DR? The ABV is weak for the style, and it tastes like candy water. They could do much better with a little more TLC with the product, instead of focusing so much on the brand.
Harsh with no depth. I don't have much to offer here. I don't have any ideas as to what they're doing wrong, just that is in fact wrong. Too many great options out there to settle for this.
The aroma and taste of this rum has no other flavor than alcohol. Definitely not for drinking straight or with water. Maybe ok for a mixer but I didn't even wish to try anymore of it.
Having had Brugal Anejo, Brugal XV and Brugal 1888, it was only a matter of time before I got my hands on a bottle of Brugal Extra Viejo. This version of the Brugal line sells for $35 CAD in my area and I would guess it is most likely used as a mixer. In spite of the low rating on this site (5.9 from 78 ratings) I thought I would give it a try as a sipper rum as it is known to be very dry, with no sugar added.
This rum is dry indeed and while not a premium rum, it is nevertheless acceptable neat but much better rums are available for a few extra dollars. Would I drink this again? Yes. Will I purchase another bottle? Not likely.
Very good, but a little too sweet f
El sabor no es malo, es un poquito dulce y sabe mejor q el Brugal Añejo q sabe a tierra. No es uno de mis favoritos ya que al dia despues de tomar este ron me dio muy mala resaca y dolor de cabeza. Brugal tiene mejores rones q este.
Un peu dure a boire seul, mais parfait pour les drink
there's much better options from there, even from Brugal, I have heard much better from the 1888 if you want to try that instead !
ok i'll give it this smooth but something that i couldn't put my finger on was not right about this rum
thin and medicinal like it had a funny after taste that to me was off putting
gladly it was not me who bought the bottle ,lol
i will not run out to buy this rum it can stay on the shelf , i would much rather drink the Anejo
Also der Brugal ist nicht unbedingt mein Geschmack, da sind die von Barcelo um einiges besser :-)
No convence. Es muy simple y ni con la Coca Cola se arregla.
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.
Tried the Brugal XV, Dry Spiced, Extra Viejo and Anejo back-to-back and I have to say they are all quite horrendous. The XV and Dry Spiced have a nice dark color, whereas the Extra Viejo and Anejo are quite weak on color. The Extra Viejo has a strong alcohol smell, taste and burn to it. Quite similar to the Brugal XV.
