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.
Tastes of strong Oak (which I really like!) extremely good in diet coke, very woodsy.
A step up from appleton estate v/x rum and around similar prices so get this one! Smells very similar to Ron Abuelo Anejo. I enjoy this one.
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
Definate mixer. Tried to sip this one and ended up almost sick half way thru the bottle. Still kicks Bacardi butt
The rum is OK but i don't like the chemical after-taste
This rum has a decent light caramel scent, although there was also a faint chemically smell to it as well. It has a gorgeous golden colour with a nice red tinge... Sipping it revealed a harsh chemical burn, absent of flavour... I tried it with coconut water... It had a slight nutty/woody taste. OK to drink once I added Coke Life to the mix, but over all was very disappointing.
Correct rum, not to much sweet or Tasty. Good for mixing.
This is without question the absolute worst rum that I have ever tried. It smells like rubbing alcohol mixed with caramel and tastes even worse. Nothing can be done to improve it. I guess that I will keep the rest of the bottle handy for neighbors who like to mooch booze from me every now and then. What they don't know won't hurt me. I would not even use this crap as cleaning fluid.
Update two weeks later: I gave the entire bottle to my most mooching neighbor and even warned her about the smell and taste. When I told her that I paid about $22 with tax, she looked at the fancy bottle and thought that I was being extremely generous. A week later, I asked how she liked it and she said that it took her five days to finish off the bottle with coke and ice. She only drinks to calm her nerves. She noted no foul smell and tastes at all. I feel so very fortunate to have been born with finely tuned taste buds unlike hers. I then asked about side effects. What she described best fits the name of a drink that another friend who knows all about fine spirits came up with: the Colonic Tonic!
This rum by far is the absolute worst that I have ever had, maybe even making anything made by Bacardi or Captain Morgan as something to be savored. Maybe I got a very bad bottle, but never again for Brugal and I.
Great mixer rum. Not one for sipping. Faint vanilla taste which works well with coke and in cocktails.
The fewer words the better . This Rum reminds me of petroleum. I drank it neat with a splash and I almost gave up drinking rum. I place this and Bacardi on the very bottom of my list. No more please!
Pokud se na tento rum podíváme za jakou cenu se dá pořídit. Musím uznat, ze se dá pít. Spíše bych ho viděl jako výrazný doplněk míchaného drinku. Každý levnejší rum se potřebuje po otevření vydýchat. Když to vydržíte, pijete ho na víc krát zjemní, ale pálené dubové sudy zůstanou.
I bought the half gallon (1.75ml) for $22.99 last week because why not. This is a product that has been on my to drink list for some time now and at that deal I thought what the heck. I wouldn't bother sipping this one because it doesn't have much to offer and is very very very simple. For this price and quality you should throw it in a cocktail that dosn't hold a lot of added flavor and let this drink just come to life. Something like a Brugal martini, or with some club soda.
