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.

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.

Only tried it with coke. Nice, but not exceptional.

It's a very good everyday rum. It has a very noticeable alcohol taste.

Nice amber color, with notes of green apples and berries. A great ftom for the price.

depends on condition you have) sometimes it is like legenda without sugar) good sipper with has obvious alcohol presence, firm middle class

Nice nose, pineapple, artificial cocos like cocos-flavored soap.
Taste a little bit boring and weak, what a pity. Some brown sugar. Soft alcohol, means easy to drink but no masterpiece. Here "tasty but not quite great" fits for me. No finish.

I recently went to the Dominican and wanted to bring some rum home with me. This was one of the ones I chose and was very happy. Great sipper.

Got this as a gift from real Dominicans! Mild, sweet but not that intricate in terms of flavor. Good as a weekday sipper on ice, or in your favorite cocktail

It's my favorite rum!
Fantastic rum and price.
You can mix it or drink it neat, eighterway its great.

No esta malo, tampoco es nada extraordinario pero se deja tomar, creo q seria un exelente ron para preparar tragos o tomarlo con un poquito de limon y hielo 😉

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.

Spot on.
Enjoy, graham.

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.
