Rum tasting in New York City continued with Brugal Añejo Reserva Rum. Very nice and unique bottle and label design. Golden color. Plenty of oak mixed with some caramel and vanilla extract to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Sweet and short burn at the end. Better mixed than neat sipped.
I like this rum i had a little new years eve binge on this. As always mixed with cola. Nice floral notes on the back ground. This compares to a havana especial or a bacardi 4.
Brugal Anejo Reserva is a pretty common rum at the all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic.
It isn't so much that it is too harsh to be enjoyed neat, it just doesn't have the flavor or depth to be enjoyed that way.
If you get any more than 2 parts Coke to 1 part Anejo Reserva the Coke will pretty much hide the rum flavor as it is quite mild for a darker rum.
Overall, not bad for its intended use as a high volume spirit in the resorts.
