Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Good rum to take with perrier water or only with ice,
Balanced, its wonderful how it coats you tongue. It makes a bad day better and a good day even better.
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.
Brugal 1888 is an excellent rum, the double aging gives it a great flavor and significant characteristics.
It is one of my favorite rums.
I had a sample of this on the rocks which rocked my world wow decent rum..
Good, solid smooth and slightly complex flavor. A treat without going overboard.
you would think the top tier product of any rum brand's portfolio would offer so much... but time and again i've reminded myself not to have any expectations of the liquid until after tasting it.
as packaging itself is very clean and premium, you would expect some quality anyhow.
it's not bad nor is it great. but it's good and won't easily disappoint yourself or your guests... but pricing can be a sensitive issue.
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.
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.
