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.
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.
This is a great rum for mixed drinks . Not bad on it own
I'm not a guy who likes to drink rum with cola, but you can't drink brugal añejo in a different way. this rum is good for a college party where the main goal is to get drunk.
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.
