Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Decent rum, but the taste is not really to my liking...
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.
This is what you get when in DR while staying at a resort. Not bad in various mixed drinks.
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!
The Brugal Rums habe their place and I'm lucky, that they are more and more available in Germany. But they have their problem in the premium segment. After I tasted most of their brand, I have to say that: As long as Brugal it is a great mixe, but as soon as they try to compete to the more sophisticated Rums they loose. Whatever u take, even the expensive ones.
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
Nice and easy, worth of every penny. Well balanced Rum with strong vanilla taste. Be careful when mixing due to strong taste.
Although the flavor is a bit sweet initially with definite shades of vanilla and oak it hits you wish a rather brutal Brugal burn. After it fades the vanilla flavor resumes until it fades. Definitely NOT a sipping rum but a useful mixing rum. Perhaps aging it a bit more would take that edge down a notch or two. Or three.
I agree with a previous comment: "interesting for its price". It is a rum you find everywhere, and where there is not premium choice, Extra Viejo is my choice.
De eerste keer dat ik dit heb gedronken was 20j geleden heb deze rum altijd in mijn collectie gewoon weg lekker puur of met cola 👍👍👍👍
I love the extra viejo normal and it's one of my favourites, so to hear brugal do a reserve I expect it to be decent... But it's quite flat compared to the normal one
Smooth rum, a little too intense taste of alcohol. A good sip rum for the price. Low sugar taste. A good rum that reminds me of my trips to Dominican Republic.
But thats probably it.. Too lean taste.. Didn´t fill my mouth.. Much alcohol taste and the finish is way too short..
Feiner Rum für jede Gelegenheit, obwohl zum mixen fast zu schade.
Nice woody and leathery aroma. This tobaco style rum will be good with some quality cigar. Rum is deep, rich and serious. it is strong enough but not too much. Quite dry.
Was in Dominican Republic last yr I really enjoyed this rum. I'm going back this year to get some more.
Chuťou pripomína fernet. Veľmi málo sladký. Pri pití by som ani nepovedal, že pijem rum
Again another great Dominican Rum . Great in mixed drinks
Sorru Brugal but your rum do not sit well with me. Matusalem on the other hand is a good Dominican rum
Is one of my favorites. I drink a lot of this rum.
one of my favourites, good for sipping on the rocks, and a really good for cuba libres
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.
