Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
The smell and initial taste is of alcohol. Add a bit of water oR Sprite and you get a nice sweet drink with a smooth bitterness. Decent and cheap enough.
Had this as part of a three rum flight. Nice flavor, very smooth.
Received as a gift. Overall surprisingly good. Quite smooth, soft vanilla notes, nice legs, nice finish with not much of a burn. Would definitely purchase.
Decent as a mixer .... Not great on its own a bit dry but I have a dry pallette so love this stuff not the class of el Dorado but it's ok
Rum tendente al dolce e poco struttura. Colore chiaro che ricorda il giallo albicocca.
Rhum honnête, bon goût, pris sur glace, ont l'apprivoise à la longue!
Just another one for collection purpose.
Cant help it, i must collect something, so for time being its rum :)

Nice but without attitude. Good with ice price is correct for the product.
A friend brought this back for me from the D.R. along with a bottle of Macorix 8. Between the 2 I like the Macorix 8 better but this Brugal XV is an enjoyable sipper.
Only tried it with coke. Nice, but not exceptional.
Fruits secs, café et chocolat. Finale assez longue sur le caramel et les épices.
That's exactly what this rum reminds me of. In fact, the resemblance is uncanny. Blindfolded, I couldn't tell you which was which. It's just fair, as rum goes. Not too challenging, not very complex, a little too sweet. There are many better rums out there.
Not bad would drink again. Not much alcohol burn, good with coke
Quite smooth rum, easy to drink with cola. Maybe a bit too smooth
Enjoyed a glass of this on my balcony, on a holliday in punta cana. To me this is where the Brugal lineup starts to pick up the pace a little bit. It has a light scent of caramel and vanilla. The rum is medium bodied and the palette offers notes of vanilla and sweet molasse with a light burn in the end. It's a doable sipper and a good mixer, but for the same money you can get the el dorado 12 which is in a different league.
I wasn't expecting much from this one given its screw top and average reviews at best; but I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.
Very smooth with a somewhat green grape taste; very dry. The aftertaste after a while starts to remind me of a white wine; not my favourite thing in the world.
Although;?at $40 for a litre at duty free in Jamaica, well worth the money.
I would recommend to anyone who likes to sip dry rum.
Rhum qui manque de goût.
Je l'ai bu sec mais il serait meilleur en cuba libre.
With XV Brugal has definitely improved their rum offering.
With a bit of tipping you can usually get XV in place of the lesser offerings at the all-inclusives in the Domincan Republic.
It is definitely smoother and quite easy to drink, however it does not have the well developed flavors of the better sipping rums.
nice sweet caramel and vanilla. it's good enough for sipping, better for cuba libre
Country of origin and distillery: Dominican Republic, distillery of Brugal family in Puerto Plata, established in 1888
Ageing: one part blended rums aged up 3 to 8 years in white American oak ex-bourbon casks; second part aged up 2 to 3 years in ex-sherry Pedro Ximenez casks
Appearance: clear, dark amber
Aroma: vanilla-cocoa smell with hint of fruits and touch of alcohol
Palate: smooth start of vanilla-cocoa, dry rum with subtle sweetness of dried and caramelized fruits, nice warm and long end finish aftertaste
How to enjoy the rum: it is authentic Caribbean rum; dry, subtle sweet and well balanced nice warm rum for those, who like younger gold rums; suitable as base for cocktails, especially for classic Daiquiri
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.
