Tasty, but not quite great
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
I'm not rum lover, but this one is extra smooth! I had it one over a dinner party, and have been looking for it everywhere since...
Nice caramel color, smell like with touch of tobacco, oak and vanilla
Good aftertaste. Aged in a combination of ex-bourbon American white oak and European PX-seasoned casks, this is a spicy and rich rum.
Brugal XV is a blend of three to eight year old rums. It was launched in 2013 and replaces the Brugal Extra Viejo. It's made with a combination of rum aged in ex-bourbon casks, and rum aged in ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. The casks are the same which The Macallan uses, showcasing some synergy within The Edrington Group, after its 2008 acquisition of Brugal.
I dont know why Brugal does not get higher ratings in general. Believe me most people drunk rum with a bit of cola, and this one tastes especially good in that combo. And don't start with the "if you mix with cola any cheap rum will do" it's just not true!
A friend who was born in the DR brought me back a bottle of this 4 or 5 years ago. I must say it exceeded my expectations. Granted it was DR bottling strength at 37.5%. But I must say I really enjoyed this rum. While yes it may lack some complexity it is a solid rum if you love sherry cask finishes.
