N- Personally, when comes to Spiced Rum, balanced of flavours and not letting the sweetness to dominant would be the key. This were concocted with a dry edge which I think are quite smartly done. Nougat, tamarind, vanilla and milky, the usual 5C's (cola, caramel, cinnamon, clove, cumin), young mango, pandan and coconut. Ordinary as you would find in other spiced rum, but tidy up nicely. (85/19)
P- Cafe latte, oak are present at spine holding on the 'spiced' structure well, raw spices, a few notch down on sweetness compared to aroma which can only be great. Rare notes of soft phenol are felt in spiced rum. (87/21)
F- Medium, well spiced, despite UP version again but full, warming, vanilla and oak-y. (86/20)
Weighted Rate- 80pt

Tried the Brugal XV, Dry Spiced, Extra Viejo and Anejo back-to-back and I have to say they are all quite horrendous. The XV and Dry Spiced have a nice dark color, whereas the Extra Viejo and Anejo are quite weak on color. The Dry Spiced has a strong artificial smell to it, but the taste is not that bad for a spiced rum. Struggles for a 6 score, but still better than the XV.
Quite a unique spiced taste, and its good! Decent smooth drink. Probably worth buying a full bottle if I can find for a reasonable price.
Most spiced rums are heavy on vanilla aroma and spices ... Brugal has tried something different here which is unique ... Lacks a depth of flavour but a dry rum tasters dream ...I had it how it was intended which was on the rocks which is lovely ... Again different for a spiced rum as they useally taste disgusting on the rocks
