Expected much more. How does a rum aged for 14 years turn out this bland and lifeless? No complexity. No balance. No mas!

Complex and mild rum, with some rough edges, a lot of wood. Not too sweet, but still very drinkable. Very nice to drink 2-3 glasses pure without anything added to it or combined with cigar, that smoothes out the slight harshness. Coming directly from the dominican republic.

A smooth and tasty rum. Complex flavors with sweet and nutty notes.

This was lovely. Had it at a bar. Although what amazes me about brugal anejo for example is the crazy crazy value proposition I actually really enjoy the brugals. This was is similar again in family. Nice sweetness but not cloying. A little one note but still lovely. The older specialer ones have some extra barrel complexity that I really like... A general lovely rum.

Amber color, slightly sweet. Too strong in taste for me, poor bouquet. Too expensive.

Brugal is a classic spanish style rum but Brugal 1888 is not at sweet rum from Dominican Republic. Matured 8 year on bourbon casks and 6 years on ex-sherry casks. It is worth mention that Brugal is owned by the Edrington Group, same Group that owns Macallan whisky meaning that Brugal 1888 as been matured on high class sherry casks.

A bit dusty on the nose and classic spanish notes. Taste of sweet Tobacco some chocolate and easy to sip.

In overall a steady rum that will please most rum drinkers.

En rigtig god rom, og sherry smagen fornægter sig ikke. Lidt for whiskyagtig til det kan blive til mere end et 8 tal.

Pretty strong wood taste with a touch of sweetness. Good overall

Vůně nijak zvlášť neoslovila, zato chuť mne dostala.
Jedno z největších překvapení vůbec.
V chuti dominuje dub, kůže, tabák, fíky. Skvělý, sušší, i pro milovníky whisky jistě přijatelný.
Ve mně prostě vyvolal představu starého kostela vůni starých dubových lavic, kadidla.
