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
Drank this one several times on out island in the Bahamas with limited selection. Was ok with coke or coconut water and lime. Hard pressed to try it straight.
I would say this is a typical Dominican, but there is an unpleasant dissonant tone at the end of the taste profile, something like moldy wet old rug, which totally destroys this rum. Surprisingly, the moldy wet old rug smell an taste even gets through coke, which is truly remarkable.
If you know, you know. This isn’t my standard mixer. I’ll still sip it if it comes down to it but I’ll just stick to using it for some mixology.
I might also be a little biased, this was my first contact with darker rhums back in, oh, 2005, maybe.. Very pleasant and smooth, goes perfectly with cola, and doesnt necesseraly need ice. Always a safe choice and price-quality ratio is excellent!
"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."
