I very much enjoyed this rum. Notes of banana, coconut, and vanilla are primary while a hint of glue comes through (may sound weird but it is good). A very sweet and fruity rum, well balanced and smooth. Mixing would be a shame!

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

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 is the first rum I bought as a sipper. I have since learned to stay away from bourbon cask rums, but this one wasn’t too bad. It was smooth and wasn’t overwhelming with the whiskey like quality that some rums can get from bourbon barrels.

I had the liquor store here bring it in. It’s very tasty but again I mix it. It’s good but has that twang that I don’t like but mixed with coke it’s amazing.

Wow, this is a smack on your lips. The nose is strong, full of spices, chocolate and wood. Although this is 40 ABV, it feels warmer than that. The palate is more dark tones, wood, spices, burn sugar (maybe) and the finish is long. Even after 15 seconds, my tongue continues to spark like fireworks, dry. If you like bourbon, this could be a good try, as this rum seems to have a strong influence from the ex-bourbon casks.

This is a nice Rum, but I expected more. Its not sweet enough and a bit too dry for my taste. Its more like a whisky than a rum. Interesting enough the barrels used for this particular rum then go one to be used on The Mcallan 17, Brugal is known for a particular taste and style, but for this price I would have expected much more. Can be enjoyed Neat.

Excelente ron, gran calidad, no es un ron dulce como Zacapa o zaya, en Boca el doble añejamiento es notorio, se detectan sabores amaderados, a melasa, frutos como duraznos, nectarinas, nispero. Es muy suave, el golpe alcohólico es muy agradable y fácil de beber. Pará tomarse derecho, en las Rocas o con unas gotas de agua.

This review is for the 2011 bottling batch 1. I must say this is an amazing rum. Granted I love brugal and Dominican rums in general. This rum is so smooth its like drinking water, the only very minor detectible alcohol is on its exit. It have a very good overall mouth feel and a good oaky spice and sweetness on its long finish. There is a strong earthy mineral characteristic to this rum. I must say this is a very strong rum. It also is the only rum I can recall that has such a heavy solid metal stopper at the top of the bottle. Beware though the cork on mine broke in half when opening this bottle so tip it for a bit if you have a dusty one laying around.

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

Wonderfully oaky flavor. A bit of a bite straight, but still pleasant. Very fine mixed, but no need to waste it in that fashion.

I would like this more except that I am more into smoother and sweeter rums which is not everyone's preference. If you want a good sipper on the dryer side, you will have it higher up than I do.

dobrý nasládlý a vyvážený rum na běžné pití, hezká vůně

This is the best tasting rum I have ever tried. Really worth the purchase.

Posted 5 months ago by jackw625 from United States with 21 ratings

For the price I would have hopped that this rum was better

Posted 5 months ago by Adrian Adame (PREMIUM) from Czech Republic with 224 ratings

Ve vůni příjemný, v chutí částečně sherry, sice není nasládlý typu Oliver, ale i tak zajímavý

Decent sipping rum. Nose is pleasant once it airs, solid flavor to sip. Not necessarily the best thing out there, but at the same time something worth sipping.

Gut ausgeglichener Rum, fruchtig mit Duft von Rosinen und etwas Holz in der Nase.
Auf der Zunge etwas süss mit Vanille und Eiche dann ein würziger Abgang.

You can order this at a good bar and sip on it. It does the job. It has a nice presentation of toffee and woody flavors. Unfortunately it is simply too dry to be considered in the top echelons of rum sipping goodness. It’s by no means a bad choice, but there are better rums in the category for the price.

Zapach: przyjemny, nie za mocny, tofii i dąb
Kolor: ciemno brązowy
Butelka: Fajnie stylizowana i zdobiona zlotymi elementami.

Esperaba más, es muy equilibrado, tiene fuerza pero se bebe fácil, tiene dulzor pero no empalaga, me gusta pero no es mi preferido.

Not as sweet as other rums with a little more burn. If you're coming straight from a bourbon drinker's perspective, this might be an easy transition. I quite enjoyed the flavors and think it's a great rum, but I personally prefer a little sweetness to my rums. So rather than getting this again, I'd probably just get some bourbon or whiskey.

Ok, not bad but a little bit far from what i was expected. Sure not to be mixed but you need ice. Nice color. Not to strong nose. The body was not too sweet and dry. The aftertaste was a mix of alcohol and spicy.

A lot of people are rating this high then me. So I need to try again to see what I am missing. This had oak, grass and earthy tones.
