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.
Easily consumable in a bind
Sipping: low flavour, watery, whisky wood, a little bit alcoholic, but not in a bad way, smooth.
Mix: whisky woody notes. IMO it has a taste of rum and whisky mix.
Alternatives if you like woody rums:
Dictador 12(old wood french polish smell), Flor De Cana 12(more fresh, sweeter, a little bit more taste, rum-like wood notes), for me - only this one had this typical whisky wood smell.
Considering the price, it is a bargain for mixing if you like such notes. I do.
Notes: Scotch whisky wood, alcoholic, watery
Wood: Scotch whisky wood
Sweet: almost none
A cocktail rum from the Dominican that's very flexible , wouldn't really try neat but excellent in a cheap old fashioned or a Hemingway .
Just an alcohol. Not much in the way of aroma , nor for mixing and no way for shipping.
It comes of a cheap brandy, a little burn with little to no flavors.
For cocktails it adds a little hit without much else.
Bacardi is better.
I tasted only a sip of it.
It was too... nothing for me.
It would make a great mixing rum, maybe I’ll try it later some other time but right now I only give it a 5, but I hope I can update it for a better review. :)
My father in law got me a bottle when on holiday in the Dominican Republic. Dirt cheap over there, but even so, hardly worth the money. Doesn't mix well with coke, doesn't taste right as a sipper.
"The rum is fairly smooth, however this gives way to a very strong burn upon swallowing. There are notes of oak and tobacco throughout the tasting but they aren’t very hard hitting at all."
