It is the champ right now in my collection. But I am always looking for a new contender. Smooth caramel with a great finish

I really like this rum. We toured the factory in the Dominican a while back and was impressed with what we saw. The taste was great, the after taste was as good or better than most any rum we have had,. When I can find this rum, I always pick up a bottle or two

A pleasure to sip. Yes it's a tad dryer than most rums but it doesn't affect the experience of sipping this gem. So smooth with many nutty flavors to enjoy along with cinnamon and brown sugar. Will always find itself on my shelf.

Brugal 1888 is an excellent rum, the double aging gives it a great flavor and significant characteristics.
It is one of my favorite rums.

Excellent rum. I usually pay little mind to the packaging of spirits, I am a single malt man after all, but it is worth noting that in this instance Brugal has matched the innards to the outards perfectly. The whole presentation and tasting experience is true luxury and the deco themed bottled simply fits.
First pour this is a dry smokey rum with strong notes of raw grassy cane. It works well with the oak. Second pour the sweetness comes through more and the oak starts to give off vanilla while the nose picks up hints of Rocky Road ice cream. I like this Rum very much. Pricey but worth it when your dressing up.

Having had a multitude of Brugal's offerings, I must say Brugal 1888 is hands down the best I've ever had from Brugal. The sherry cask finish gives it a great rounded finish.

This is a nice after dinner rum straight out of the bottle. Really really smooth, a bit dry, but the sweetieness is balancing out fine the dryness.

Very balanced flavor from start to finish.

Posted over 7 years ago by DaveW from United States with 15 ratings

Very complex rum. A very good top shelf rum. Different then a typical rum with a bourbon, sherry, scotch type taste to it. Very drinkable and very smooth.

Posted over 6 years ago by Scott T from United States with 120 ratings

This a very good complex dry rum, with no added sugar and so none of the sweet doctored-up taste of so many of the "Z" rums (Zaya, Zacapa, Zafra). This is what rum should taste like - woody, smoky, leathery. A little on the pricey side and not one I would drink every day, but a nice bottle to own if you like that flavor profile.

Reminds me of a smooth whiskey. Not for mixing. Not sweet. Smooth sipper. Nice bottle and a pleasing addition to any collector's bar

A very tasty rum to sip, especially for a Dominican rum.

Posted over 4 years ago by Raymond rodriguez from United States with 1 rating

This rum should be best enjoyed neat or with a small ice.

Complex, with the right balance between dry and sweet.

Posted about 5 years ago by Luis from United States with 14 ratings

This one is really different and interesting. A short immediate flavor with a long leather Leather LEATHER taste. A very good one, not many other flavors involved, perhaps a lot of wood.... and seconds. An excellent alternative.

This is a big favorite of mine to sip. You can taste the extra aging in the sherry casks. We love it and it is easily available on the east coast.

This took me by surprise. Great flavor profile. Smooth, oaky flavor with subtle hints of sweetness. I would highly recommend this if you enjoy an aged rum.
