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.

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.

Rum worth trying, however I do not include this one in my favourites.

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.

Probably my favorite mixer. What you get for what you pay is excellent. I buy this by the case

This one starts out a bit heavy on the alcohol, including in the nose. But the finish is rich with balanced syrup, sweetness, oak, a touch of vanilla, and a perfect low intensity burn. Not super duper complex, and you have to down it to get to the good part, but it’s very sippable.

Hier in der Dom Rep. Probiert.
Kostet dort ca 15$ komischerweise kostet der anejo genauso viel.
Dafür ist dieser um einiges besser.
Für den Preis sehr mild im anbgang ohne größere andere Aromen.
Mit Cola eher unspektakulär. -> besser Limette und Eis oder Sprite.
Für den Preis aber echt in Ordnung. Kann durchaus Pur genossen werden.

Denna gör rom och cola mycket smakrik, mycket bättre än Brugals anejo den ör fortfarande väldigt billig men bara som bland rom annars blir du besviken.

Bon rhum a boire sec ou sur glace serai sacrilège de mélangé à du coke

Nothing fancy. Good mixer. Actually decent on rocks. Drank tons of this in Punta Cana. It is very interesting that at 37%ABV compared to the normal mix ratio of a 40% can be increased and you get more rum body in your drink. The bottle also goes faster. lol. Enjoy

Another great Brugal product.
I have the Extra Viejo and 1888, all excellent

No nose (lol) and very sharp on the tongue when sipped. Ok with coke but will not be a keeper in my bar, no real depth, very flat.

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.

Not bad, and while I prefer to sip my rhums, if I need some to mix, I choose this one, as it is not on par with other on the same price range. Not complex, not particularly pleasing.

Pas mal, et même si je préfère déguster mes rhums nature, si j'ai besoin d'un rhum pour un cocktail, je choisis celui-ci, car il n'est pas à la hauteur d'autres dans la même gamme de prix. Pas complexe, pas particulièrement agréable.

It is a sweet rum were you can tast honey. There is also a tast and smell of wood. Its decent but nothing fancy.

Middenmoot, een 6,5 zou beter zijn maar het is geen heel indrukwekkende rum. Wellicht goed voor in de mix.

Posted over 1 year ago by Robhendriks from Belgium with 11 ratings

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

Among the others dominican rums Brugal is good. This XV is pretty dry and mild. It have sherry cask notes that makes it more interesting to drink neat. The good price for 25$ can made it one of my on-duty rum!

Un rhum rond et avec de grande note de carame, pour les amateurs de melasse

Posted over 1 year ago by Snookerman from United Kingdom with 121 ratings

A fairly bland and unremarkable rum. I would not say that it was a bad rum, but then again compared to most 15 year old rums, I'd probably use that very word. It's kind of off-dry...just a hint of sweetness, but there is very little flavour compared to the best sipping rums.
