Decent rum, but the taste is not really to my liking...

But thats probably it.. Too lean taste.. Didn´t fill my mouth.. Much alcohol taste and the finish is way too short..

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.

Nice bottle of rum to have for when you just want to sip a rum and soda on the veranda. Sweet and smooth, but not something to enjoy straight from a snifter. Will buy it again as a standby for mixed drinks. Not expensive for the quality.

Rum tasting in New York City continued with Brugal Extra Viejo Reserva. Very nice and unique bottle and label design. Golden color. Strong oak and plenty of caramel mixed with some spice mixture to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Dry burn at the end. Better mixed than neat sipped.

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.

Not a very special rum, I expected more. It taste like it was diluted. Chocolate is the dominant taste in this rum. No burn. Won't buy the bottle. Not a great finish.

Ganz ok, passt aber irgendwie weder zum pur trinken noch für die Mischung.

Not bad, nice presentation but for the price I would choise a flor de caña 7, abuelo 7, habana 7 or bacardi 8. So light in nose and taste, i feel i am missing the rum profile here

This rum is definitely a sipper. Tried it neat and is not the best option. Sweet and spicy. No balance.

Sehr stark im Geruch, aber schwach im Geschmack. Zu wenig definiert.

Sorru Brugal but your rum do not sit well with me. Matusalem on the other hand is a good Dominican rum

It is just caramel-colour dark, simple and sweet, molasses-notes, thin.

Den er ok. Men jeg syns den er lidt meget spritte, og ikke fardi ud vikled.

Smelled bad, tasted bad. Was a gift from someone that went to the Dominican. I tried it again and let it breathe for over an hour, was drinkable with ice after that.

I tried this 2 Years ago and it was very disgusting. Just bitter, some kind of burnt caramel, chemical spice?? not even with coke. Yak!
