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.

In the Chicago area I'm buying this stuff at just over $19 a bottle. I've been sipping it with just a few DROPS of water. For the price I find it an excellent value rum. I'm a bit surprised by my fellow raters to dee it cast as mediocre; again it is a value for me. The flavors won't knock your socks off, but it is smooth enough to sip.
...because when it comes to rum it doesn't mean a darn thing! I've had rums under the "Anejo" banner that taste like gasoline and while this one is somewhat drinkable it takes $40 a bottle to get there. And, its still nothing great. It's just another Anejo and Coke waiting to happen.
Bit disappointed really after I'd read up on the Brugal brand.. A little harsh but it's a little immature too. Probably not the best Brugal offering but as a mixer on a night out it is recommended. Easy to live with on a night away from home. Not so sweet or strong so lasts the night out without getting you hammered. I won't search this variety again but equally if poured my way I'm happy to accept.
I gave this an 7 because of the price point. I think it drinks well on the rocks and I really enjoy the overall flavor. It's just a tasty daily drinking Caribbean rum overall.
This is definitely not a sipper for me. Typical caribbean flavours, nothing special. Little bit smoky, but too harsh for me. Also burn is rather strong. Good for mixing with drinks and coke.
It is smooth, easy to drink and really is an equilibrated rum. Nothing special about it, but still a good way to introduce yourself into rums.
The original bottle and nothing special inside with caramel flavor. It burns the palate, although only 76 proof. The second bottle will not buy.
"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."
