One of my first really good rums and still one I'm fond of. this is one of those experiential rums that washes over you with warmth and calmness. Never a harsh moment just an expression of enjoyment.

I loved this less expensive flavor packed gem. Went down smooth and wasnt inclined to stop once I started with it. Sadly, it is no longer available in my area.

Not what I was expecting for a rum. Very dry not sweet at all, the taste is almost bland. But as you sip it the flavors start to come out.
Smooth easy sipping almost like a good whiskey. I enjoy it but almost miss a little sweetness to it.
Would I buy it again - certainly, would I seek it out, probably not.

Nose is fruit and wine. Definitely taste the sherry, low sweetness, minimal alcohol burn but a warming finish, the sherry lingers

It is probably the best-selling rum of the Dominican brand Brugal. It is a 40% blend of molasses rums aged 8-14 years using the solera system. The blend is aged first in American oak bourbon barrels and then in sherry wine casks.

Bottle: Taller cylindrical bottle with a characteristic net.
Colour: Dark amber

Nose: It's quite pleasant. I mostly smell caramel, then vanilla, cocoa, resin and oak. But the influence of the cask was not so pronounced.
Taste: It's rather simpler, but it suited me quite well. Again, the flavour was mainly burnt cane sugar, dark chocolate, raisins and woody notes, which were more intense than in the aroma. The rum is not sweet, but not too dry either. It is so balanced.
Aftertaste: Medium long

Conclusion: I have to say that I quite liked the rum and I rate the taste/price ratio positively. It will be appreciated more by rum drinkers who like less sweet pieces.

Rating: 8/10

Good rum with no specific aroma and not so smooth finish. But stable body and good rum above the everyday level.

I tried to like it, as it's popular with newbs. But just ok for me.

My first rum from Dom. Rep. today :-). >Age is a secret, with sherry cask finish.
Nose : alcoholically, oak, smoke
Palate : oak in front, dark chocolate, an initial little sweetness gives way to bitterness. Hmm, not really tasteful. Not really nice. I miss the fruit from the sherry cask finish.
Put an ice cube in the glass. Caramell an honey are coming through. A little sweeter now and bettter than neat.
Finish : medium, salty and sweet notes from caramell and honey at once.
Conclusion : I don't konw if I should like him. Price round 30 Euro is okay but the taste is a little special and the finish doesn't scream loudly for another sip.
