Brugal Añejo rum

Brugal Añejo

Dominican Republic | Gold

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.

This rum is noticeably dryer and smooth. Different than what I am used to and I wouldn't necessarily call it a sipper but it's great w a splash of cola or ginger ale to add a little sweetness. I can't describe anything bad about it other than i wish it had some more sweeteness. Good smooth stuff overall. Got a liter for 27 bucks in north NJ can't complain ;) Cheers
Year later update: I've grown to love this stuff for it's easy drinkabilty. I loved a bottle of 1888 I tried and soon after realized how good the anejo was with ice or just a little added water. The rum is slightly sweet and has a little added sugar. The Brugal flavor is unique and tastes like vanilla tropical rainforest dew, however it’s one dimensional/not a complex rum.

This is a solid rum, preferably for drinks that require a dynamite rum that can "show through". This rum gives you the sense of a fine Caribbean rum, but doesn't quite have the age required to bring it to the levels of the island sippers.

Not much to say really. I could be biased from drinking this rum in cold rum n'cokes in late night merengue clubs over in DR but then I could also have an incredible taste ;-)

Sip it with a little ice and a splash of water. Add honey if you want.

Brugal Añejo rum from the Dominican Republic - in the perhaps updated version, with the more-blue label appearing as in photos from other commenters - is to my taste very pleasant, smooth, drinkable, a bit towards the elegantly dry side as Brugal suggests, without harshness as is sometimes found in rums of this modest price level. Not as distinguished in flavouring as others, but to me very drinkable on its own without mixing. Not sure about the fishnet on the bottle LOL

For the money not to shabby and not overly sweet. Neat it's slightly neutral with clean light oak supplemented by subtle vanilla and caramel without being edgy, but it's obviously meant for mixing. Makes for a good cheap cocktail base.

Sipping: low flavour, watery, whisky wood, a little bit alcoholic, but not in a bad way, smooth.

Mix: whisky woody notes. IMO it has a taste of rum and whisky mix.
Alternatives if you like woody rums:
Dictador 12(old wood french polish smell), Flor De Cana 12(more fresh, sweeter, a little bit more taste, rum-like wood notes), for me - only this one had this typical whisky wood smell.

Considering the price, it is a bargain for mixing if you like such notes. I do.

Notes: Scotch whisky wood, alcoholic, watery
Wood: Scotch whisky wood
Fruits: none
Sweet: almost none
Kick: medium-high
Salty: none
Flavour: low
Aftertaste: low-medium(wood)
Wine: none
Funk: none

Pas très original mais caractéristique d'un rhum dominicain

For the price, it’s not a bad everyday rum with some coke and a squeeze of lime.

Unfortunately in Ontario our government sanctioned liquor monopoly (LCBO) does not carry much of a rum selection and even fewer Cuban-Dominican offerings.
This is one is regular stock and l'm not sure why.
Initial taste is pleasant but is almost immediately overtaken by alchohol burn. Bad stuff , wouldn't even use as a mixer.
Havana Club Anejo is much better for a lower tier rum.

Super cheap, and definitely not bad. Suitable to drink on a casual night, or when partying.

Snad ještě lepší do míchaček než 1888. Verze Extra viejo je v tomto ohledu top!
