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.

This rum started out well enough with the familiar vanilla, oak, and caramel that I find common in Dominican runs. However once the initial taste passes there’s a distinct taste of what I call swamp water leading to an unpleasant finish. I am not sure that a mixer such as coke would cover it up. Not a sipping rum and a low end mixer.

I don't know why but I wasn't expecting this one to be tasty. I thought it will be a bit harsh and undefined. But after a first sip I was convinced by a solid aroma and mild aftertaste. Not the best in the world but a nice change and great addition to my usual collection. Good find!

Good dry rum for mixing, little bit harsh for sipping.

When nothing else available you can count on a Brugal as a decent mixer, or even for a pop or two. Usually I only drink on the out islands where nothing else is available.

Nice rum overall, not particularly sweet with a lighter overall taste going towards a smooth oak aroma. Better sipped straight

It was a while ago but I keep a memory of an acceptable sweet rum.

This is a nice Rum but there are better competitors out there at the same price, like it's little brother it has a bit of a punch but maybe lacks a little smoothness you'd expect.

The flavor of Brugal has some bite but an still be enjoyed Neat if you like some bite, The alcohol lingers when drinking Neat, its an excellent for mixing, make a good Rum a coke or Rum and Coconut water when hydration is needed.
