Nose: Vanilla, Caramel, very mild
Body: Pleasant and smooth with caramel tones, not so over-sweetened.
Tail: Balanced, mild, nicely,slowly developing
Bottle: under-average for a Rum of this age
I like this one, first Brugal which Ive had, but definitely an interesting one! I'm gonna have a bottle of this one
Did not enjoy the aftertaste at all. It has a rough barrel finish.
This is definitely the best of the Brugal rums I have had but that said it doesn't hold up against the Zacapas or Centanario's. Not as creamy, no real legs, nowhere as smooth. It was also pricey so I won't be buying another.
rarely find a sipping rum that i rate under 7. and most people seem ok with this one. but the taste at star and finish don't do it for me or the guys at tasting night. just sayin'.
Brugal 1888 er en rom uden den store eftersmag, sødmen er lige ved at gøre den tør. Ikke min favorit.
Reminds me of a smooth whiskey. Not for mixing. Not sweet. Smooth sipper. Nice bottle and a pleasing addition to any collector's bar
This is a nice, smooth sipping rum. It's not too sweet and almost complex enough to justify the price. I say "almost" because there is a little something flat in the finish. It's not as noticeable a hole as in their Extra Viejo, but it's still a letdown considering I can get RL Seale's 10-year for cheaper.
A nice sipper, finding it difficult to decide if i like it more than siglo de oro. A little dry, oak, spice, licorice and maybe even a little salty.
A very tasty rum to sip, especially for a Dominican rum.
un nez tres doux
Une entree en bouche tres delicate, du velours...
Aromes de fruits secs, agrumes, caramel....tres subtil melange, une belle reussite
Une longueur en bouche tres appreciable pr un rhum typé espagnol
A recommander vivement à tous ceux qui aiment les rhums doux, sucrés (mais pas ecoeurant) et complexe.
You can find far better Domincans.I recognized its origin at a blind tasting but i know like 5 other Domincans which give u more in this price-class. It simply lacks depth and the finish is watery
This rum is a very decent sipping rum and it also fares well in drinks.
It is not the sweetest of rums but it has a round and smooth finish.
I would recommend som finnish liquiroce to accompany the rum.
Fairly hard to find. The flavors are weak, and could benefit from some sweetness. Mor oak than I like to have in a rum.
Great rum. A dry and less sweet dark rum that resembles a Scotch. It is also a bit dry. One of my favorites. I do find it a bit pricy but worth it. This one I only share with special guests.
This 100 anniversary edition is good, and not as dry as most of their range.
Mon premier "vrai rum straight!
Un super goût complexe avec des touches de crème brulé, bananes et de noix, quand même assez sec mais délicieux!
Ne pas abuser peux être traitre après la première bouteille!!
Few hints of.sweet, nice for neat or rocks, excellent when mixed with soda water
Chocolate, spice, fruity nose, Caramel, toffee, smoky oak on the palate....
Love this Rum it is great 1st had it in the Dominican
Sugar: 3 to 5 gpl. This not an overly smooth rum but it is a strong tasting rum with aroma of spice, wood, coconut and vanilla in the glass and a nice burst of heat with a long finish. It has a touch of sweetness to counter the burning glow it has on the throat. It's a great mixing rum but I would pass on it as a sipping rum unless you like ice with your rum.
This one is really different and interesting. A short immediate flavor with a long leather Leather LEATHER taste. A very good one, not many other flavors involved, perhaps a lot of wood.... and seconds. An excellent alternative.
The best I found in our trip to dr...dryer, meatier, mature, complex...no extra sugar, a fine tipple
Agree that this is dry, smooth and complex. It struck me as mildly woody with a very slight smoky flavor.
