Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Brugal 1888 is 'double aged', first aged up to 8 years in American oak barrels followed by Spanish oak sherry casks for up to 6 years.
Although my bottle was corked there were still notes that showed impressive complexity and depth. But unfortunately the corkiness (the only time that I have found with a spirit) completely ruined things. I really should buy another bottle, but.....
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.
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.
