Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Brugal Anejo rum is a blend of rums aged 3 to 5 years in used American white Oak barrels that previously held whiskey and bourbon.
The rum is produced in the Dominican Republic by Brugal & Co., a company that was founded in the late 1800s by the Spaniard Andrés Brugal Montaner. Today, the Brugal rum company remains largely in the control of Montaner's direct descendants.
Sits firmly in the category of mixer rum. Decent but not my favourite.
Storsäljare i Dominikanska där den är som bordsvin och dricka precis överallt.
Kraftigt spritig men den är ung. Funkar toppen till cola och man vänjer sig otroligt snabbt att dricka den i alla situationer om man är i norra Dominikanska Republiken. Billig rom med billig smak men funkar förvånansvärt bra.
Dry, wood taste, tobacco...
Not harsh, but not like sipping all the event. For a 5 years one soso OK.
I've tried Brugal on several occasions. This is not a rum I’d ever consume neat or on the rocks.
Very hot ethanol forward not a lot of flavors. Ok in a cocktail
N- Chocolate milk, molasses, tobacco smokes and hazelnut, some feint and layer of pleasing citrus peels. (83/18)
P- Juicy fruit and calm oak on medium body despite under-proof, not much on offer, but manage to being pleasant. (82/17)
F- Medium, with apparent present of oak to last, clean and take this straight with no ice please. (83/18)
B/B- 82/17. As it says, 5 years in specially selected ex-bourbon American oak casks, sounds good. But as UP version for the shaker, but then, with ice again~

W smaku lekko cierpki, dla tych którzy wolą rumy słodsze ten niestety się nie nada . Cena 50-60 PLN za butelke. Uważam że czegoś mu brakuje, jednak ma swój specyficzny smak którego do tej pory nie spotkałem nigdzie indziej.
Ive tried bugal on several occasions. I try all my rum straight. This is not a rum I’d ever consume meat or on the rocks. Very hot ethanol forward. Ok in a cocktail but for cocktails I’d either choose a great rum or use a Bacardi white or gold.
Vůně po kouři. V ústech hustý jako olej. Nijak výrazná, ale příjemná chuť.
Be weary buying a North American shelved bottled of Brugal Anjeo vs. a bottle straight from the Dominican - they are different. The Dominican brugal has a very unique, sweet and smooth flavor to add a profile to a mixed drink or rum and coke. A little brisk for a straight sip, but a delicious mix. Maybe I’m biased as I was enjoying this on a Caribbean beach, but hey... can we really complain when our glass is full of any rum?
Strong and overated for its famous. The alcohol is ruling the aromas and the finish
An all around good rum. Decent on the rocks, good mixer, but not quite what I would want to sip neat.
A bit fruity and sweet... bla bla bla God damn app that forces me to add min 50 characters to just add this rum to my list
Used to live in DR and after many bottles of this I resorted to calling it Brutal... It was on sale today for 21$cdn and figured I'd give it another shot... horrible at best..mad I even bought it after already knowing why I would always spend the extra dollar to drink Ron Barcelo when I lived there...buyer beware
Doloroso, necesario mezclar con coca cola, precio elevado en comparación con otros rones de la misma calidad
Between the alcohol, the American whiskey barrel that It's been in, and a dry Pine wood taste on the tip of your tongue when you first taste it it doesn't go much further than that. If you're looking for mixing rum that is not sweet and might appeal to a American bourbon or whiskey drinker and that's not going to cost you and arm and an leg, but still has heritage. You found it.
Harsh and with that weird cherry (not sherry) background flavor that is artificial and disturbing.
Alright for mixing. There are better options in the same price range, but it doesn't suck.
Bought for 13€ in Spain.
while not winning any awards for me, this one has better character than some rums twice the price. Very young and woody, but still a great mixer for fruity cocktails or even a rum and coke. A bit acidic, but worth what you will be paying.
A good cheap caribbean rum !
sometimes i am in perfect agreement with the bell curve on rum reviews. sometimes i am way out of whack. this is one of those. i found it beguilingly good. at first i thought it would be harsh based on the color in the glass, and the bottle price suggested as much too. ya, it's not a heavy ass rum, it's rather light. smooth not too harsh. minimal but pleasant after taste. i think you could introduce someone who "doesn't drink straight rum" with this and surprise them, that ya, maybe they do!
I'll admit the reason I picked this up is because I liked the marketing pitch with the net over the bottle. The rum itself wasn't bad, but I could pick up the bourbon and whiskey notes from the barrel aging process. Unfortunately I'm not a whiskey/ bourbon fan.
I really gave this one a try as a sipper but it just didn't win me over. I found it a bit too sweet and underwhelming in its taste profile. However, once added to a rum and coke it wasn't too bad. I'll use the rest of the bottle for this or use for mixes but definitely not as a sipper.
Rhum sec et astringent. Il est préférable d'attendre 10 minutes pour que l'alcool s'évapore un peu pour goûter les saveurs difficiles à goûter. C'est un rhum pour boire avec du coke.
Not bad for a island generic. Very sippable on a hot day. Versatile because you can mix or sip.
Picked up on a lightning deal on Amazon for £17 usually priced at £21. Have tried and rated the Brugal 1888 so was keen to sample others in the range.
I find it comparable to the rums you can find at the supermarket nothing special really. Definitely a mixer rum but for the price you cant really complain I don't think I'll buy it again but it's not undrinkable by any means!
