Brugal Extra Viejo Reserva Rum is crafted from a blend of rums aged up to 8 years in former bourbon and whiskey barrels.
This rum is produced by the Brugal distillery in the Dominican Republic. Founded in 1888, to this day the company is still run by the Brugal family.
Its a good rum to just pour over some ice, sit down and relax in your favorite chair with. On the low end of rums I've had that dont need to be mixed with anything to enjoy.
Not sure why the rating is so low.
It is some time ago that I tasted this rum, so I can not go into details. But I have it on my rebuy list and in good memory.
It's an interesting and tasty rum. Nice with a cigar.
Brugal stellt generell sehr weiche Rums her. Der Extra Viejo ist mein Lieblingsrum der Pur und mit Cola einen wunderbaren Geschmack hat.

Brugal Extra Viejo Gran Reserva Familiar is aged 8 - 12 years in the Dominican Republic. It is quite low priced and shouldn´t be compared with way more expensive premium rums.
The bouquet isn´t really complex and dominated by oak.
So is the body dominated by wood with only little hints of fruits. Brugal Extra Viejo is moderate sweet and has a little harsh aftertaste.
Though it isn`t to complex in taste Brugal Extra Viejo might work well with a nice cigar. Its strong wood character is interesting but not overwhelming.
I would recommend this rum for all of you looking for a cheap non-sweet rum for everyday use.
I was introduced to this in 90's on my first trip to Dominican Rep
Smooth rum, very little harsh bite. Possibly a hint of spice, but in not overly flavorful. Slightly rubbery and little aftertaste. In general, kind of a boring rum.
