Recommendable to most
When I opened the bottle, this rum has a really nice aroma. It approaches a bourbon. I used to rocks with a shot. The ice mellowed the alcohol burn a bit. Again, This reminds me of a bourbon. Not too sweet. I can taste and smell the char of the wood. This is an easy drinker. I’ll recommend this to anyone. Especially a whiskey drinker who wants to try a rum.
As a sipping rum I like it but there's nothing very special that leaps out to really make it generate taset fireworks in the mouth. Very easy to drink, like that it is relatively dry.
I've always liked Brugal, there's just that flavor in their younger rums that comes out when I mix it with ginger beer, coke , or just lime. So when I found the 1888 on sale at Total Wine I had to give it a go. This was my first sipping rum in awhile at the time and its really smooth. It goes down well, it just has a dry finish that I didn't notice as much until I tried it back to back with another sipper I had just purchased. All in all I would buy it again, its great- but not my favorite.
I had a glass of this sitting outside at the Four Seasons, very nice :-) Excellent dry sipping rum, with a bit of sweetness and a bit of burn.
