Clasat Rum. One can feel the rich cask taste from the moment the bottle is opened. Aromatic, matured rum, the woody white oak makes its presence felt throughout the sip, taste and aftertaste. Didn' t expect much from it but it really impressed me.
More subdued than XV, but the whole rum is buried under very unpleasant wooden flavor. The whole brand seems to be riddled with it, from the cheapest to Leyenda, and I did not dare to try more expensive Brugals with this reputation.
Firts it’s a chock, you get a strong alcohol dry taste. Then you begin to taste the wood and for 5 to 10 minutes u still enjoy the soft taste. If it wasn’t for the strong alcohol taste in the beginning it would be a 9 for me. Definitely a good longaftertasty rum!
This is the first rum I bought as a sipper. I have since learned to stay away from bourbon cask rums, but this one wasn’t too bad. It was smooth and wasn’t overwhelming with the whiskey like quality that some rums can get from bourbon barrels.
I had the liquor store here bring it in. It’s very tasty but again I mix it. It’s good but has that twang that I don’t like but mixed with coke it’s amazing.
Wow, this is a smack on your lips. The nose is strong, full of spices, chocolate and wood. Although this is 40 ABV, it feels warmer than that. The palate is more dark tones, wood, spices, burn sugar (maybe) and the finish is long. Even after 15 seconds, my tongue continues to spark like fireworks, dry. If you like bourbon, this could be a good try, as this rum seems to have a strong influence from the ex-bourbon casks.
This is a nice Rum, but I expected more. Its not sweet enough and a bit too dry for my taste. Its more like a whisky than a rum. Interesting enough the barrels used for this particular rum then go one to be used on The Mcallan 17, Brugal is known for a particular taste and style, but for this price I would have expected much more. Can be enjoyed Neat.
Excelente ron, gran calidad, no es un ron dulce como Zacapa o zaya, en Boca el doble añejamiento es notorio, se detectan sabores amaderados, a melasa, frutos como duraznos, nectarinas, nispero. Es muy suave, el golpe alcohólico es muy agradable y fácil de beber. Pará tomarse derecho, en las Rocas o con unas gotas de agua.
This review is for the 2011 bottling batch 1. I must say this is an amazing rum. Granted I love brugal and Dominican rums in general. This rum is so smooth its like drinking water, the only very minor detectible alcohol is on its exit. It have a very good overall mouth feel and a good oaky spice and sweetness on its long finish. There is a strong earthy mineral characteristic to this rum. I must say this is a very strong rum. It also is the only rum I can recall that has such a heavy solid metal stopper at the top of the bottle. Beware though the cork on mine broke in half when opening this bottle so tip it for a bit if you have a dusty one laying around.
