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.
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.
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.
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!
