Easily consumable in a bind
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.
My brother picked this one up, and I was very new to the world of rum at this point.
I was surprised by the bold flavor and sweetness of it, it was not what I expected at all. I'd love to try this one again now that my tastes and experience have both matured a bit more.
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.
