It's not sweet but very pleasant. Flavor goes to burbon because the long storage in burbon oak barrels.

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.

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 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.

Think this one is aged in bourbon, sherry and scotch casks. Quite complex and very different from the rest of the range.
