Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I really was surprised, not much alcohol taste, mild, imple but good, maybe a bit boring. You can´t go wrong with it but you want have any wow with it neighter
The XV was a nice surprise to me. Brugal have tried to make a more smooth tasting rum, compared to their normal dry notes, and have done a nice job with this.
Only tried it with coke. Nice, but not exceptional.
Having tried Brugal 1888 (which I really enjoy) and Brugal Anejo (not so much) in the past, I thought I would further explore the Brugal line of rums with the purchase of Brugal XV ($38.50 CAD in my area). Based on the ratings on this site I did not have and great expectations but was really pleased with this rum. First of all it is very dry (which I like) and also light. I expected this rum to be used as a mixer but I am very comfortable with using it as a sipper. On the nose, there is a slight smell of caramel that is present but the taste is surprisingly very enjoyable with a long lasting pleasant slight burn. Overall I was pleased with this rum and will keep definitely keep a supply on hand. Well done Brugal.
I picked this up last week in duty free in P. Plata airport. $15 / £11:50.
Smoother than I expected at the price. Perfectly drinkable either neat or over a ice cube.
Not tried it with coke yet, but I imagine it will be spot on.
If you are at a airport with a few dollars to get rid of, it’s well worth a try.
Now tried with coke, fine.
Even better with ginger ale, asvin Dark and Stormy, even though itd not s dark rum.
Rum jsem popíjel denně na me dovolené v Dominikánské republice a musím ho hodnotit kladne. Vyvážená chuť, zraje 3 roky v sudech po whiskey, pak 5 let po sherry, což z nej děla jemnější rum. Dobrý poměr cena/výkon. Hlavně tedy v DR, kde láhev 1,75 litru stojí asi 25 usd :)
Its à ok rum but not for another Bottle.
A lot better rums out there
I use the Anejo of Brugal as a mixer, which is great gor that. I bought XV as a sipper but the harsh alcohol taste makes it instantly a rum just for mixing and the Anejo , allthough cheaper is still better for mixing also
De la familia de los Brugal es el segundo mejor después del 1888 que he probado. No lo volvería a comprar pero si me lo invitan...
Very smooth with notes of tobacco, wood, and caramel. Can be enjoyed on its own or mixed with soda and/or juice.
Just back from Punt Cana, was my go to Rum while there...
I had only drink it with coke. Smooth and caramelly
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 XV has a strong alcohol smell, taste and burn to it. Struggles for a 5 score.
I don't like Nothing interesting for me. Just ordinary rum.
Chestnut, almost amber-coloured rum, a bit smoother than the añejo but the same typical 'mouldy' Brugal flavour. Smell of vanilla, cinnamon, honey. You can drink the XV straight but it's quite good with coke as well. All in all, a decent rum.
Len med lite spritsmak. Helt ok men ingen riktig karaktär.
Nothing wrong with this rum, still nothing special.
This is definitely a decent rum, albeit not in my top.
Very good rum. A little too expensive considering the brugal anejo is better and about 10$ canadian cheaper.
Mám rád rumy značky brugal a i tento mě potěšil. Myslím že dobře vyvážená chuť nikoho neurazí.
but nothing more. A nice rum with a good smell, not much on the palate and its gone.
I let the label and the name convince me that I was having a bargain. Hey, I thought. A 15 year old rum for that price? The screw-top should have been a warning. Barely any aroma, nice soft sweetish taste, very light after-burn. Not that I didn't like it, but definitely not a sipping rum. Nice with some ice and a splash of soda, though.
I found this to be very tasty by itself. Was very good mixed with soda. For the price i would buy again. I would recommend to anyone for a good mixing rum.
Although not a drink-en-masse rum I'd prefer to call it a sipping rum. Goes perfect with chocolate. If you want to drink larger quantities of it why not drink it like they do in DR with fresh coconut water. Oh...because you are not in the caribbean right :-P
