Brugal 1888 Gran Reserva Familiar
Origine : République Dominicaine
40 %
Nez : Vanille, caramel, cannelle
Bouche : Vanille, caramel, bois brûlé
Un goût trop simpliste pour un rhum ayant passé du temps en fût de bourbon et xérès. Les notes de xérès sont presque inexistantes. Pas mauvais mais décevant.

Circumstances play a lot, just left my barber , great place, nice haircut and beardsculpture .quite some nice rums (and other spirits too). Tasted the Brutal 1888. Not bad, not bad at all, u set the circumstances but won't run to the liquor shop to buy me a bottle. No distinct taste or nose. Just ok...

De cuerpo sedoso con sabor profundo y con un final largo. Con notas avanilladas y miel de manera espectacular en boca con un retrogusto impecable

Pleasant enough with dried leafy, raisiny flavors with a hint of caramel.
A mild spice on the tongue and a sight burn in the nose it makes a fair sipper.

8 με 9 ..... Ωραίο ρούμι !!!!! Τόσο γλυκό όσο πρέπει με μακρυά επίγευση καραμέλας χωρίς όμως να είναι πολύ γλυκό όσο άλλα ρούμια. ( θετικό) και ωραία μύτη. Σίγουρα πάνω από 8 ........ Άπλα ίσως να έχω επηρεαστεί από την πολύ ωραία χτεσινή παρέα που μπορεί να απογειώσει τις αισθήσεις αλλά και οποιοδήποτε ποτό πίνεις. !!!!!! Επιφυλάσσομαι για διόρθωση της βαθμολογίας (προς το καλλίτερο) !!!!!!!!!!

Nice sipper over ice. A slight burn without ice but totally smooth with ice no need to ruin it with a mixer. It's a nice dominican blend aged for 8 years in ex bourbon in brick house and a second aging in ex-sherry casks for 6 years in brick houses. Nice fruity and slightly sweetened, can taste the flavours from both barrels coming through a slight smoky smoothness from the bourbon and a fruity raisin caramel finish. Wonderful

Didnt know what to expect on tbis one, picked it up on a whim.

Overall it is pretty light in nose and body, only reason I gave it a 7 and not an 8. That being said, i like the profile of it. Starts off sweet, definitely molases amd sugar on the front end. But the sweetness melts away fast into some bananna and a hint of oak, which really makes this a good one to enjoy neat IMO. Nothing stands out, nothing is overpowering, no bitter finish. Will likely be a regular for me.

Too much alcohol in aroma. Good taste with sweet tones but short aftertaste.

Some Oak and banana for sure, without overpowering sweetness. Priced appropriate.

This is part of a rum Advent calendar from my son. Small but adequate tasting amount.

Terrific nose. Fresh, not alcoholic, lots of floral notes.

Beautiful balance, all flavor and a finish that slides right off the tongue. Not hugely complex, no huge spice, but REALLY nice sipping. I disagree on the "no sweetness" comments I've read. There isn't much, but...just enough. I origionally put this at 8, but am going for 9 (realy wanting 8.5). This is a great rum!
