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.
Ive tried bugal on several occasions. I try all my rum straight. This is not a rum I’d ever consume meat or on the rocks. Very hot ethanol forward. Ok in a cocktail but for cocktails I’d either choose a great rum or use a Bacardi white or gold.
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.
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.
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.
Tried the Brugal XV, Dry Spiced, Extra Viejo and Anejo back-to-back and I have to say they are all quite horrendous. The XV and Dry Spiced have a nice dark color, whereas the Extra Viejo and Anejo are quite weak on color. The Anejo has a super strong alcohol smell, taste and burn to it. The worst of these Brugal so-called-rums.
This was my first ever. I liked it with coke, to sip i did not like it.
But it did get me interested in rum, so now i am looking to find a rum with more flavour and slight more sweetness.
Hope rumratings will help
Me discover that.

Brugal Anejo is on the sweet side with a medium body a great minerality to it that I like. I used it in a Rum punch and it was a big hit.
