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.
Dnes si představíme základní rum firmy Brugal, který je vyrobený z rumů starých 2-5 let a pochází z Dominikánské republiky. Patří mezi nejlevnější Karibské rumy, v Německu jsem ho pořídil za 14 €.
Alkohol: 38 %
Původ: Dominikánská republika
Aroma: Čokoláda, karamel a trochu těkavosti ředidla, což asi zní divně a odpudivě, ale vůně je to veskrze příjemná, jen, vzhledem ke svému mládí pochopitelně, neuhlazená až trochu drsná, ale v mezích slušnosti. (83 b)
Chuť: Žádná uhlazenost, snad jen první 2 vteřiny na jazyku se zdá jemný, ale pak se jeho nevyzrálost projeví lehkým škrábáním na patře. Trochu do čokolády a kůže. (75 b)
Shrnutí: Asi nejlevnější rum z Karibiku, který jsem kdy koupil, a na běžné popíjení není špatný. Víc mi tedy voní než chutná, ale vzhledem k ceně to je odpovídající. S ohledem na poměr výkon/cena mohu doporučit k vyzkoušení. Určitě mnohem lepší volba než středoevropská "rumová" produkce.
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
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!
Ok rum to mix but not very special. There are better options
Bit harsh maybe. Not a sipper thoigh. Like the string around the bottle though.
Love how smooth this is for a daily drinking rum. This works really well as an alternative to a spiced rum.
As most of the other reviews...its ok. Not bad but far from blowing me away
Save yourself the trouble; this is no sipping rum. And if you're buying to mix it, try something else for $4-5 dollars more.
I like Brugal & I drink what I like rather than what I am told I should like. The elevation of fine sipping rums in opposition to malt whiskeys seems to be gathering pace but is an elitist movement. For those who simply wish to drink & enjoy (not to impress & boast) with or without a mixer, Brugal is a very decent rum at a decent price.
Put it in cocktails, mix it with cola. Don't bother sipping neat; it's not good enough. Cheap as chips. Grab one for $8 when you're in the Dominican.
Beautiful rum for cuba libre... Tried many rums: flor de cana, El dorado, zacapa, Ron barcelo (I think), Bacardi gold and 8, cruzan gold and single barrel. Real smooth and full of flavor, not to mention a great price
