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.
Tasty, but not quite great
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
Not bad, but not as good as I'd hoped for the price. Flavor isn't bad, but not much in the way of legs or finish. It'll probably be a good mixer (I had it neat, in a snifter, with a few drops of water). For the price, $33, I feel it should excel on its own.
Had the same drink made with Bacardi and then with Brugal Extra Viejo, completely different flavor. Brugal was sweeter, richer and smoother. Outstanding rum as a mixer.
Easy to find and not very expensive, yet good to drink on its own. Would not add ice in order to keep the notes and flavors on the forefront.
As a mixed rum quite ok,...pure i do not like it too much. The smell is boring and alcoholic and the same feeling is continued while sipped.
I do not get what is so "old" about it,...i prefer the not so old three year old havanna club which is even cheaper :)
I would not buy it again though.
BRUGAL Extra viejo is the best of dominican republic. i lovet.. nice taste. One of the best alcohol what i try in my life. I drink only this now :)
Certainly the definition of a fair sipper. Nothing stands out, has very little burn and would be perfect intro to those who would like to start drinking their rum neat or with an ice cube or two.
