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.
Great as a shot rum but pretty poor at all other aspects....
usually if you see any liquor from latin americas with the wording 'anejo', you would associate it with some lengthy aging sufficient to smooth out the edges of the character... but not so much in this case. or i may have had higher expectations due to the labeling...
anyways, not too shabby but there are so many other better rums at similar price points.
For mixing only. Nothing special for me . Average.
Just your average mixing rum, nothing more nothing less

Parfait en Cuba libre, sur une plage, devant le soleil couchant !
Not my favorite but it will do if there's nothing more decent to drink.
It tastes like shit.Even with Cola is terrible.Drink another rum.
This is best tohether with Coke! if is used for spping I suggest to let it brief for at least 15 minutes, it becomes better then.
This rum has a distinct woodiness to its aroma in the bottle. I came to that conclusion before reading the label and discovering it to have been aged in oak casks. Upon further research I discovered the oak barrels used to contain bourbon. That explains not only the aroma but also its mellowness. This is a fine sipping rum with bare hints of sweetness and a complex flavor that does remind me of Kentucky bourbon. Some may prefer this as a sipping rum but IMHO it's best in cola.
One point...fishnets on a woman...sexy. Fishnets on a bottle of rum....weird. :-)
Immanquable et classique. Reste meilleur melangé ou sur glace.
Agréable à souhait. Se laisse déguster sec ou avec glace.
I'm not sure if I've ever had a Dominican rum before, but the first impression is very favourable. The exact lable isn't the same as those shown, what I bought is Brugal Anejo Superior.
Not sweet, strong alcoholic smell. Therefore better with cola
Beh... è un Brugal giovane, che c'é da aspettarsi?
Bruciante (per i non allenati).
Rum non proprio da degustare. Senza segreti. Da "shot".
E questo, a mio avviso, è il suo punto forte: la semplicità.
Quando si ha voglia di bere qualcosa di diretto, senza viaggi mentali, solo uno schiaffone che ti svegli e ti faccia tornar "Uomo"...... Brugal.
Low on the sweetness scale. So low it almost doesn't taste like a rum. The best way I can describe the taste is dry. Like a Riesling.
Super Rum für Mixgetränke und für Cuba libre. Sollte man immer im Haus haben
I like woody and dark profile of taste. This is serious rum with high leathery accents. It is strong and rich in flavour but not too harsh in mouth. Good value for nice price.
Basic fruity cocktail rum, strong chemical/alcohol smell & taste. You might as well be drinking cheap vodka
Bottle at BCLCB is slightly different shape and is labeled Superior.
Nice dark amber colour, okey flavour, on sweet side. I enjoy it neat but adds a great deal to a Hurricane as well
Sugar: 7 gpl. A middle of the road rum. Strong oak taste tempered with a bit of caramel, and is probably in the 5 grams per litre mark for sugar, which I would class as a dry rum. Works well as a cocktail rum, but not so good as a sipping rum.
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.
In Germany this brand is pushing more and more into normal supermarkets, sold for a similar price range, like Bacardi and Havanna white or 3yo. In this price range it is probably the best u can get. It is surprisingly smooth for around 10 € and better than Brugal white, which is sold for the same price too.
