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.
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.
I like this straight pretty well, but try the Jolly Roger for a nice mix. Mix 1 part Anejo, 1 part Banana liqeuer, and 2 parts lemon juice.
very easygoing mixing rum, sweet and light in flavour.
Good on the rocks or with tonic
I only tried this recently as it was the house pour at a friends bar n i must say for a house pour its great! Get a slighty woody, smokey complexity as well as the typical sweetness which is more cocoa than the typical caramel. Made a lovely Daiquiri with it!
