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.
I really like it in my rum and cokes, but Its not a great sipper.
Drank a lot of this in Dominican on holidays and finally found it at home, little to sweet
This one comes across a bit harsh to sip. I prefer a swetter run on ice and this one doesn't have it. I think it is better served as a higher end mixing rum.
Es un ron que esta bien para mezclas pero me quedo con diferencia con su hermano el Extra Viejo.
Kinda hot and not to complex. Dry with lots of sharp oak and a little vanilla and toffee. Good with Coke or juices. I made a pain killer that was good. If you need a cheap sipper this can do though prefer aged Bacardi don q or Barrilito for the modest prices
Had this on holiday enjoyable but a little weak next time will have it straight
Smooth with ice, some heat when it's neat. This rum is noticeably dryer and smooth. Different than what I am used to and I wouldn't necessarily call it a sipper but it's great w a splash of cola or ginger ale to add a little sweetness. I can't describe anything bad about it other than i wish it had some more sweeteness. Good smooth stuff overall. Got a liter for 27 bucks in north NJ can't complain ;) Cheers
Year later update: I've grown to love this stuff for it's easy drinkabilty. I loved a bottle of 1888 I tried and soon after realized how good the anejo was with ice or just a little added water. The rum is slightly sweet and has a little added sugar. The Brugal flavor is unique and tastes like vanilla tropical rainforest dew. ;)
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.
Brugal Añejo ist meines Erachtens der beste Rum für Mixgetränke. Eine Cuba-Libre schmeckt mit dem Añejo immer noch am besten
...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.
À venir prochainement.............................
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.
Realy good taste. You should try it. Don't suit everyone but I like it.
The original bottle and nothing special inside with caramel flavor. It burns the palate, although only 76 proof. The second bottle will not buy.
Solo para mezclar con refrescos, casi llega al aprobado, fuerte concentracion etilica, oculta el verdadero sabor a ron
I got this for free while on a trip to the Dominican Republic. Very harsh -- it required about 6 oz of coke before I could drink it. Had flavours of licorice that I am not a fan of. If the goal was to simply get drunk and there was nothing else to drink, then I could do it (with coke!) but otherwise, I would not buy this.
Im Cuba Libre immer eine gute Wahl. Nicht zu aufdringlich aber in der Cola präsent genug.
El color ámbar confunde. Esperaba más. Olor, sabor predomina el alcohol
Just okay. I received it as a gift in a trip in Dominican Republic. So, it's good for cola and to be mix but not more. It's bottom of the range !
This one here really split my decisions as my preference towards this will whole heartedly be based on price. Often found cheaper than the HC7, this one competes directly against that in quality and flavour just with a slight harsher note of caramel.
Definitely worth trying as its a great dark/gold for the price but if you plan to use it for mixers ther are better options. As far as relatively 'basic' rums go, I would choose the HC7 every time over this.
