As a sipping rum I like it but there's nothing very special that leaps out to really make it generate taset fireworks in the mouth. Very easy to drink, like that it is relatively dry.
I've always liked Brugal, there's just that flavor in their younger rums that comes out when I mix it with ginger beer, coke , or just lime. So when I found the 1888 on sale at Total Wine I had to give it a go. This was my first sipping rum in awhile at the time and its really smooth. It goes down well, it just has a dry finish that I didn't notice as much until I tried it back to back with another sipper I had just purchased. All in all I would buy it again, its great- but not my favorite.
Rich molasses, vanilla, wood, tobacco, and slightly fruity notes. This one is wonderful in cocktails as well. I've used it for several "Smuggler's Cove" specs and it does wonders and adds a lovely depth.
While flying through Madrid I found myself in the duty free liquor store early one morning and found a Brugal display bar sampling all their wares. Purchased an 1888 and have had it several times since. Nice upscale rum likely a 7 but found memories give it an 8.
I had a glass of this sitting outside at the Four Seasons, very nice :-) Excellent dry sipping rum, with a bit of sweetness and a bit of burn.
I was a bit skeptic about buying this rum, glad that I did. Excellent Spanish style rum.
The Sherry cask really enhance this spirit and add some sweet notes to the rum that otherwise might be too woody and plain.
My favorite Spanish style rum so far.
