Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Notes of oak and caramel on the nose, more oak and vanilla on the tongue. Dry finish. Good all around, but not really exceptional. Likely there are better options for most people in this price range.
A pleasure to sip. Yes it's a tad dryer than most rums but it doesn't affect the experience of sipping this gem. So smooth with many nutty flavors to enjoy along with cinnamon and brown sugar. Will always find itself on my shelf.
rhum doux, qui passe tout seul dans la gorge sans rien bruler mais qui manque de saveur, de caractère. Trop plat. Je note 6 pour le gout et 8 pour la douceur.
The solid form of the bottle and with gold inscriptions. In the grid. The aroma is pleasantly heavy and not original: varnish, leather, tobacco. The taste is buttery sweet interesting and similar to Barbados rums. It is drunk at ease with water. A slight aftertaste of essence. There is no creative impulse. The post-effect is normal.
Big fan. Great packaging with a metal enclosed cork top. Rich caramel color with a sharp intense nose. Taste is bitter sweet dark chocolate with a smokey peaty finish. Dry and intense flavor. Holds up well with ice.
Love this stuff. Deffinitely a very Unique rum. One of the smoothest rums I have ever placed upon my tongue. No sweetness, this rum is obviously just exactly what it is a pure and natural like it is supposed to be when it comes out of the barrel. No idea how old it is but i would guess that it's a minimum of 12 years old. Dried fruit on the nose, finish has a leathery fruity complexity. I enjoyed it Neat, on the rocks and just for a kick with a splash of coke. All were excellent! Buy a bottle. Speaking of bottle it is really nicely presented, and the cork has a metal cap which is a first for me. Classy stuff right there!!
When I first cracked this bottle, the nose instendly reminded me of Cask 16; you Crown lovers will know what I'm talking about. The taste is consistent with the Brugal line up; dry and mildly sweet.
The more I drink and sample rum, the more I develop a like for dry rums. In Addition to the dry there is just a mild spice that compliments the dry well. I would recommend to all who like the dry.
Shout out to bold boss for grabbing me this for me while in Quebec.
I'm not a fan of Brugal but this is something different. Its very smooth compared to their Anjeo which really packs a punch and is very dry. It get the Sherry cask aging but its not over done and balances out the dryness adding hints of fruit and sugar. It's a good rum and very much worth trying.
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.
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.
It's literally Brugal Anejo.
I like brugal anejo so I tried this thinking it would be an upgraded version. No it literally is Brugal Anejo in a different bottle. What confuses me is how Brugal Anejo is 6/10 but this one sits around 8/10. I guess the higher price and "1888" number makes us think it's better quality.
