Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I tried this side by side with the more expensive (and slightly lower rated as of this review) Siglo De Oro. I liked the Siglo De Oro in that it is 40% abv, while this is a relatively weaker 38%. But the Leyenda has more spice and sweetness, and simply tastes better to me, so I'll give this the edge, and it is a high '9' to me.
Smells and tastes of caramel, spice, oak, and honey. Very good for the price of only $57 (2017).
Our neighbor picked a winner as a gift when they came back from Dominican. I have not drank enough yet to really give detailed characteristics, but I can tell you that we will not be adding Coke to such a fine spirit that needs to be enjoyed in its entirety.
Everything is balanced perfectly (aroma, colour, flavours) but it's maybe just a bit too subtle to be a 9. It's an 8.5. Got some in Punta Cana for about £15. Ridiculously cheap for the quality. Wish I had more room in my suitcase.
I was introduced to this rum by a Dominican friend. Impossible to get in Canada. He brings it back from the Dominican, but I managed to find it on a recent trip to Germany of all places! Great sipped on its own, the smoothest rum I've ever tasted!
Picked up this bottle on a trip to the DR and I’m so glad I did. A little more dry in the back end but does have a sweet beginning. Taste of honey, vanilla, new leather and slight oak. Straight with a large ice block and you’re good to go.
Great. Super smooth with no burn. Notes of caramel, wood, tobacco. 3rd in line behind Siglo de Oro and Papá Andrés. This is more on the sweet side while Siglo de Oro and Papá Andrés both have a better all around profile.
Kein schlechter Rum für den Preis, hallt lange nach....ein bisschen wie Honig auf der Zunge.
Este ron es una bebida con doble envejecimiento, esto lo hace un ron de excelente calidad. Fue una gran experiencia tomarlo.
Picked up a bottle while in the DR...Havent found anything I like better since...truly a remarkable sipper.
This room is damn near perfect in my opinion. The color is beautiful the aroma is stunning and it's as smooth as silk. Maybe a little bit on the sweet side but it's definitely forgivable given the all-around package.
Is the Best so far from brugal is a truly legend nice taste awesome smell it is better than brugal siglo de oro
Fantastický dominikánský rum, skvěle vyvážená chuť, citelné aroma dřeva a přitom je jemný. Prozatím jsem nenašel lepší rum, nádherná vzpomínka na dovolenou.
The best of the Brugal line that I've tried. However, there is so much added sugar that it feels like they were trying to cover up something. It's too much sugar, period. Oak in the nose, hint of spice. Flavor is an interesting blend of fruit, caramel and oak, and vanilla, but it made me feel like that vanilla was added.
This for me is the best of the brugal line that I've tried. It's very smooth and sweet and to me just perfect. Highly recommend
You can taste the cane in each sip. The combination of rum is Just perfect very soft to drink. I love it.
Provato nella Repubblica Dominicana e subito presa una bottiglia da portare in Italia. Leggermente dolce.
Thee color is intense reddish amber with good body. It has great aromatic variety with clear notes after honey and sherry wood. It is exquisite at flavour with fruity notes after dates, figs and peaches, with a long lasting and elegant.
One of the best rums so far that I had a chance to taste. Great for sipping
Excelente relación calidad-precio. Ron dulzón con un final vibrante. Recomiendo tomarlo solo.
Brugal Leyenda ("Legend") is truly one of the best rums ever made. So rich in different flavours expanding in your mouth - a true treat. Pure or on ice may be the best way to enjoy it, but even in any longdrink you will still figure out that there is a special rum being used. Chapeau, Brugal!
