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.

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 :)

This Rum replace Extra Viejo but it is smother so closer to Extra Viejo Reserva. The flavor of Brugal has some bite but an still be enjoyed Neat if you like some bite, The alcohol lingers less when drinking Neat, its an excellent for mixing, make a good Rum a coke or Rum and Coconut water when hydration is needed.

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.

Very good rum. A little too expensive considering the brugal anejo is better and about 10$ canadian cheaper.

Good price foto a 15year rum... Not an exceptional good taste, but really not a bad one.

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

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.

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.
