A lot of people are rating this high then me. So I need to try again to see what I am missing. This had oak, grass and earthy tones.

This is a shelf standard for me. I have no problem sipping it over a rocks cube or using it in cocktails. Just a solid lower-sugar tasty rum.

This is a typical Cuban-Dominican rum....not sweet but spice and oak...just a bit too thin and alcohol after taste to put it in the easy sipping category.

I would really like to get my hands on some better tier Brugal rum.

Very balanced rum and fine sipping, adding pleasant aromas, not too high, not low on the nose, but also having great ones on the taste: caramel, cocoa, cinnamon and liquorice, dark chocolate and some cigar and lots of spice along with the interminable finish. On of the best tasted so far.

12 years of elegance - not too sweet, yet not heavy or sharp

I like this rum. I can taste the sherry. The nose has some candy and cake. A little bit of yeast on the finish.

Lovely rum, not too sharp but not too mellow either. Love the touch on the palet vailla, butterscotch, citrus. Amazing rum, straight up, and a decent price.

Schöne Bernsteinfarbe.
Im Geruch absolut unauffällig, ein wenig Karamell mit ganz wenig Alkohol.
Im Geschmack Vanille Karamell/ brauner Zucker im Abgang ein wenig Süße und Alkohol mit Holznote.
Gefälliger, guter Rum, kann man genießen,
aber nichts was einem vom Hocker wirft.

Good burn to start. Dry, not sweet. Not very complex.

En nariz cascara de naranja, chocolate, cuero, pasas, vainilla, en boca vainilla, caramelo y almendras tostadas,se siente picante agradable, bastante balanceado,y un final medio-corto.

Here we have a complex Rum that IMO should satisfy even the "Rum Snobs".
It is smooth but with some heat. Mildly sweet with notes of dried fruit, mild spices and brown sugar. Nice sipper. Beautiful presentation in and outside of the bottle. A definite must try. 😉
