Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Rum is my favorite drink, I basically only drink Rum, and I have tasted most of the available ones found in my country, from straight sippers (my first choice) to "ethanol" based cocktail cheapos. Being on a low income I relay on offers to get the good stuff, and Brugal 1888 Gran Reserve, either on offer or not is to my taste one of the best ever. Definitley not comparable to Guyana Plantation, or the high end Cubaney or Zacapas, but unbeatable for its price. Even if traditionalists think Im nuts, I love to drink it with a squeeze of lime, and during hot summer days even an ice cube.
Over all I give it an 8 out 10. It goes down like water with a very short afterburn and you feel the alchool kicking in after just a couple of drinks. I highly recommend not getting drunk thou, as it can be a strong and unpleasant experience, but two to three drinks will be more than enough making you feel just right.
A great product.
Smagt til romhattens romfestival 2019. Den får en 7'er.
Having tried and rated a bottle of 1888 Ron Gran Reserva Familiar I saw this one as a new product at my local store and thought I would try it. After looking it up on their website I think this is the new standard 1888 since the old bottle is not listed. It says aged up to 14 years and double aged in bourbon and sherry casks. The aroma is very subtle and inviting. The flavor is very heavy with molasses and is quite smooth. It reminds me a great deal of Papa’s Pilar 24. Overall a nice offering if you like sweetened rum, it not too complex but a very good choice for $40.
