Okay in my opinion depending of what sort of taste you prefer, this could feel a little bit strong.

Brugal makes some hot rum across the line. This blend was a little too hot and dry for me to drink neat or on the rocks, but mixed, it is excellent rum. Maybe once I am one glass in on some smoother rum, I could drink this on the rocks, but not as my first drink.

Je désirais ce rhum pour ma collection depuis longtemps, et enfin je l'ai ! Le Brugal 1888 Gran Reserva Familiar provient de la république Dominicaine. Ce qui m'a frappé en ouvrant l'emballage de carton, ç'est la couleur de ce rhum, cuivre foncé, bronzé, il semble lumineux ! La bouteille à fond épais est digne de ce bon rhum, vieilli et élaboré en "double vieillissement", premièrement, de 6 à 8 ans en fût de Bourbon de chêne blanc, ensuite en fût de sherry espagnols. Le goût est complexe, on sent la cane à sucre, et on devine le parfum de sherry. Les épices évoquent beaucoup le sucre brun, et le tout est admirablement dosé et discret. Ç'est un excellent rhum, traditionnel et moderne à la fois, à cause du "double vieillissement". Le résultat est bien balancé, sec et délicatement sucré.

Agréable accent de caramel, de bois et de réglisse. Finale légèrement sucrée.

In my very limited experience this rum has by far the best aroma. I found myself having 4 sniffs to every sip.

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.

One of my favourite of the moment, especially considering the reasonable price. This is a subtle and compact rum. It doesn't wildly throw flavours all over the place, which i hate. It is very harmonious and not too sweet.

Duften minder mig lidt om Diplomatico'en.
Ok i smagen dog lidt kønsløs. Den kan sagtens drikkes, men ikke en jeg behøver at eje.

Balanced, its wonderful how it coats you tongue. It makes a bad day better and a good day even better.
