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.
The Brugal basic. This is really good with coke. On it's own you will want it on the rocks. Very medium taste
I tried this straight and was very disappointment with the taste and smoothness.
Other than the initial alcohol burn I couldn't really put my finger on any particular flavour. May be useful as a mixer, but certainly not worth drinking straight.
Nothing outstanding but nothing objectionable either, just a decent solid inexpensive rum. Used to be able to find it for less than $15 but seems to have crept up closer to $20.
This has a woody-earthy taste that wasn't bad but not for me. Will try this in mixed drinks but on its own (neat, neat with water, with ice) this was a disappointment after enjoying Brugal Expecial Extra Dry and reading ratings of this from others. Thus far, liked it best on ice.
This is a decent rum. A good mixer. Something to put out when company visits and you want to hold back on the good stuff.
This is probably one of the best priced rums around for it's great taste. It's smooth and has an nice earthy taste.
sweet sugary rum ok for mixing with coke,wouldn't drink on its own though.
This is very nicely placed rum. Nice enough to drink neat. Cheap enough to mix for friends.
Nose: I had this on the rocks so the nose was subdued, however there was some sweetness to it.
Feel: Very accessible. No nasty burn.
Taste: Very basic (probably the only major downfall) of caramel and cracked black pepper.
Presentation: They have updated the bottle slightly in Canada however thankfully they have kept the net stocking.
Price: 28 CAD. Worth it.
I would have liked a little more complexity in the flavour but for the price point I don't think it has many competitors.
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.
gedronken op de dominicaanse republiek smaakt goed
Afdronk mwoa... Liever een Captain of Havana...kan niet tippen aan matusalem
Mein Lieblings Alltags-Rum. Passt zu jeder Kombination und jeder Gelegenheit.
Weich und unaufdringlich verfeinert er jeden Cocktail. Immer wieder eine gute Wahl.
Not to my taste, almost a dry flavour that makes it unpleasant to drink straight. Maybe better with a sweet mixer.
It´s a budget mixer, and mixes ok, but there are better options.
Not bad but not really worth drinking on it's own either.
Very good quality for it's price. This Brugal can be seen as an entry point to the world of Carribean rums, with a rich gold color and gentle taste. Goes very well with cola.
Picked up a bottle of this from the local supermarket amongst the usuals, Cpt Morgans, Lambs etc.
For a rum from a supermarket I was quite impressed and good value for £20.00, though if you're looking for a decent sipping rum at this price then English Harbour 5 Year is a better choice.
Best enjoyed with a couple of bits of ice
a litel bit to strong for me, but a great Rum
OK in a pinch, but it's not going to be a regular in the closet though
The Brugal basic. This is really good with coke and a light squeeze of lime. On ot's own you will want it on the rocks. Very woosy character to it with not much else.
Not sweet compared to older rum but great for cuba libre
Nice smooth rum
Excellent rum when you factor the price in. Definitely sippable - smooth and sweetish. Has a smoky note that reminds you it's Dominican but it doesn't overpower the rum like Havana Club or Matusalem. When you can get this for about $20 in the US and $15 in Puerto Rico, it makes it quite a nice purchase.
