Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
At first it seems quite good. But the taste doesn't last very long nor is it very complex. But if you are looking to serve decent cocktails, the Brugal 1888 will do the job just fine.
Great nose. Light color.
This rum seams to be a great divider of opinion due to the very dry taste. I like it. (The lowest score seems to have voted twice which has pulled down the average)
Caramel, sherry and a very, very light spice.
Tør rom. Lidt sødme. Ok til prisen.
Very balanced flavor from start to finish.
By far, Brugal's best rum. Very high quality reserve for a high yielding producer. Deep bananna, oak, and cherry flavors. A little abraisive on the tounge at first. I prefer it on the rocks, but can be straight up. Bordrline very dry.
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.
Amber color, vanilla, creme brûlée, light spice. Opened up with 1 ice cube
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.
Very nice rum.
Une bonne dose de vanille.
Great vanilla taste
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.
2nd best brugal after siglo di oro love the color
One of my favs. its has a little heat with a hint of oak.
