Recommendable to most
I've realized I like sweet rums. This is a very dry rum, but it is fantastic in it's field. What strikes me the most is the blooming oak taste that seams to grow throughout the tasting. It is a clean oak taste, nog much whisky, sherry or cognac barrel as other rums, but clean old oak. Yes it has the usual tastes like dried fruit and molasses, but the oaky aftertaste is what lingers. Pretty elegant and an unusual choice if you're after a more dry and clean sip. Not my cup of tea, but I'd imagine someone into heavy whiskys would like this. Still giving it a high rating because it is very interesting, odd, and not in any way unpleasant.
Brugal Siglo De Oro comes in a nice fancy blue box with a magnet on the front of it. The bottle itself is a very fancy style shape with a big fancy cork and gold seal on the front. It has a pleasant fruit kind of taste to it with hints of spices. It is by no means a $130 bottle of rum. I've had $40.00 bottles of rum that tasted better. Brugal Leyenda is a far better tasting rum and so is the El Dorado 12 year old rum IMHO. Lots of bling but no bang.
Nice leather arome, but needs to breath some time. More dry taste with whisky tones, not so complex body. Very long aftertaste.
Enjoyed Brugal Siglo de Oro in Santo Domingo. Bottle looks very high end. Color is semi dark. Very strong and sweet to the nose. Sweet flavor profile continues to the palate. One of the most longest lasting afterburn of any rum this side of Black Tot. I found Siglo de Oro from several local liquor stores for $65 to $75 per bottle which is a very good price for a high end rum from the Dominican Republic.
I wasn't sure if I'd like this or not based on other reviews which said this was on the dry side, and the fact that I'm not a big fan of the Brugal 1888 as I think that's too bourbony.
This was good though. It wasn't as bourbony as the 1888, and it was VERY smooth. A bit on the dry side for my liking.
Smells and tastes of bourbon, oak, leather, tobacco, and vanilla. A very good rum.
Yep woody start in aroma and taste. Like smoked a bit sweet but robust. Enyway mild. Traces of fruits as mango, sultanas, caramel... Changes during tasting. Good.
Da, este ok.. Fin, curat, ambalaj si prezentare de exceptie dar poate un pic prea scump pentru ce se vrea... Ma asteptam la un aftertaste mai corpolent si mai lung..
I got this bottle from the Brugal factory in the Dominican Republic. It’s an amazing bottle and display. Packaged very nicely in the blue case. Cracked this open on Christmas Eve after opening gifts. On the nose it’s amazing and feels like a work of art. After letting it sit in the glass a few minutes to breathe took a sip and another and another but nothing. I felt like it was very bland. It wasn’t dry it wasn’t sweet it had no flavors of any of the aromas coming from the decanter. For being Brugal’s top of the line I felt it was in third place behind 1888 and Leyenda.
Zdecydowanie największa chwała jaka mnie spotkała na rumowym gruncie. Wspaniałe doznania, które towarzyszyły mi podczas picia tego zacnego trunku, pozostały w mojej głowie do dzisiejszego dnia. Nawet nie spodziewałem się, że smak, zapach może się tak zakorzenić w pamięci człowieka. Wszystkie doznania, poczynając od smakowych, poprzez zapachowe, a na obcowaniu z eleganckim opakowaniem kończąc mogę porównać z czymś niezwykłym. Mam nadzieję, że jeszcze kiedyś u mnie zawita!
Je l 'ai goûté lors d'une dégustation de la saq. Il est vraiment cher mais il est rempli de finesse avec un goût de bois et miel. une odeur de fruit sec.
