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.
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.
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.
