I bought this rum in hopes that "Extra Viejo" really meant that, but it doesn't. Still, the rum compares favorably with Cruzan Gold at the same price point: about $14/liter here in the place where Joe Kennedy, and also countless terminal rummies, start(ed) off. The packaging (see photo) means I'll buy it again as a robust mixer.

I wound up at a liquor store that supposedly had a great selection and they can also order Pusser's rums for you. It was a convenience store on a busy federal highway, but in the back was a large glass case filled with expensive tequilas and single malt scotches. The small selection of rums was next to that glass case, and they did have this rum. Since I had not seen this one in a VERY long time, I just had to spend my Belmont Stakes trifecta winnings on it. Would it be just as bad as my all time worst rum ever, Brugal Anejo? I would soon find out.

Sipping it neat has too much burn. On the rocks brings out some caramel flavors. At $26 US, this is still too expensive to mix. The label on the back recommends drinking on the rocks or in mixed drinks. I agree. This one started out as a low 6 in my ratings, but has tumbled down to a high 4 because of the strong chemical taste found eight days after opening the bottle. No more rums from Brugal for me! Their 1888 was the best and I rated that as a 6. All are overpriced crap.

Drink this often, good to mix with coca cola, orange or grapefruit juice or more. Won't disappoint

well the headline says it all, i'll try it as a mixer but even then i expect not much from it. maybe i got a bad batch since others seem to rate it higher, but the stuff in my bottle honestly smells like the glue children use in arts and crafts. taste wise i only get burn and cheap alcohol taste, could as well be colored oven cleaner. at least i didnt pay for this stuff

This rum is often pushed on tourists as one of the finest rums in the country. Obviously, it lags well behind that classification. A decent mixer. The aging in sherry casks strongly influences the final product. Good in a pinch, if Barcelo Anejo or Gran Anejo is not available.

Smooth, sweet. Works well in Cuba libre. Value for the price.

Enjoyed most of the Brugal in the islands when that’s the best we could find. I mix this with fresh coconut water or coke. A bit rough to sip on the rocks.

Nejlepší rum na míchané nápoje! Pít ho samostatný chce ale dost odvahy.

Nice molasses with a touch sweetness and bit dry end. Overall a sympathetic moderate rum.
