Not fantastic in anyway, but not bad either. I unfortunately had it from an ordinary drinking glass, so it might not have given it the perfect treatment, but initial nose was with a very strong oily alcohol smell with a nice round vanilla tone. Sip revealed a not especially sweet rum, lots of cognac cask and fairly sharp alcohol taste. A nice after touch of vanilla followed and lingered a while. Didn't make much of a stir with me though and it might as well have been a cheap standard whiskey or brandy.

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.

Trying another new to me. Have had some good luck with Brugal in general, this was as expected. Smooth, not much bite straight but lacked overall flavor for me in a sipper. Excellent as a heavy pour with club soda

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.

Je pensais ramener une excellente bouteille de la République Dominicaine, XV (15 ans) je n'aurai pas dû me fier au nom. Un rhum sans arômes, que je garde pour les mixs.

Decent rum, i use it as a mixer or to take to parties or garnerings. Its a cheaper rum to keep in stock

I see no reason to try this. A bit of burn and heartburn afterwards, nothing special going on here. The 1888 is at least pleasantly sip able on the rocks.

Very rich in alcohol, but that's about it. No smoothness or details of a richer taste.
