Easily consumable in a bind
I hoped it would be an upgrade to Brugal Anejo and it does seem to have a thicker body and maybe more aging, but its aged only in ex-bourbon casks not sherry. It’s good but if you’re a regular Brugal drinker the finish feels sort of empty because there is no fruity wine barrel influence that is usually there in other Brugal offerings. Heavier and maybe more sugary than the Anejo, but lacking the full Brugal flavor found in their other better rums.
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.
I went to the Brugal distillery in the Dominican Republic some years ago and tried many of their rums. I purchased a bottle of this as it was the best rum that I had sampled during the visit. I have kept this bottle for special occasions and recently opened it. I must admit to being underwhelmed with this rum. For the unusually high price, this rum drink (at 37.5% can you class it as rum?) is fighting way above its weight. It's not a bad rum but it is less than average in my opinion.
The aftertaste is harsh when drank neat but ice does tend to improve it a lot. The taste has a smokiness to it that does not linger. A truly forgettable rum that does mix with coke classic very well. When in a bind is just about right for this rum.
