Not usually a fan of Dominican rums, but this one was easy to drink.

Big fan. Great packaging with a metal enclosed cork top. Rich caramel color with a sharp intense nose. Taste is bitter sweet dark chocolate with a smokey peaty finish. Dry and intense flavor. Holds up well with ice.

Love this stuff. Deffinitely a very Unique rum. One of the smoothest rums I have ever placed upon my tongue. No sweetness, this rum is obviously just exactly what it is a pure and natural like it is supposed to be when it comes out of the barrel. No idea how old it is but i would guess that it's a minimum of 12 years old. Dried fruit on the nose, finish has a leathery fruity complexity. I enjoyed it Neat, on the rocks and just for a kick with a splash of coke. All were excellent! Buy a bottle. Speaking of bottle it is really nicely presented, and the cork has a metal cap which is a first for me. Classy stuff right there!!

Ein guter Rum zum akzeptablen Preis. Nicht zu süß, leicht würzig. Langer Abgang

When I first cracked this bottle, the nose instendly reminded me of Cask 16; you Crown lovers will know what I'm talking about. The taste is consistent with the Brugal line up; dry and mildly sweet.
The more I drink and sample rum, the more I develop a like for dry rums. In Addition to the dry there is just a mild spice that compliments the dry well. I would recommend to all who like the dry.

Shout out to bold boss for grabbing me this for me while in Quebec.
Cheers 👊

I'm not a fan of Brugal but this is something different. Its very smooth compared to their Anjeo which really packs a punch and is very dry. It get the Sherry cask aging but its not over done and balances out the dryness adding hints of fruit and sugar. It's a good rum and very much worth trying.

Brugal makes some hot rum across the line. This blend was a little too hot and dry for me to drink neat or on the rocks, but mixed, it is excellent rum. Maybe once I am one glass in on some smoother rum, I could drink this on the rocks, but not as my first drink.

Je désirais ce rhum pour ma collection depuis longtemps, et enfin je l'ai ! Le Brugal 1888 Gran Reserva Familiar provient de la république Dominicaine. Ce qui m'a frappé en ouvrant l'emballage de carton, ç'est la couleur de ce rhum, cuivre foncé, bronzé, il semble lumineux ! La bouteille à fond épais est digne de ce bon rhum, vieilli et élaboré en "double vieillissement", premièrement, de 6 à 8 ans en fût de Bourbon de chêne blanc, ensuite en fût de sherry espagnols. Le goût est complexe, on sent la cane à sucre, et on devine le parfum de sherry. Les épices évoquent beaucoup le sucre brun, et le tout est admirablement dosé et discret. Ç'est un excellent rhum, traditionnel et moderne à la fois, à cause du "double vieillissement". Le résultat est bien balancé, sec et délicatement sucré.

Agréable accent de caramel, de bois et de réglisse. Finale légèrement sucrée.

In my very limited experience this rum has by far the best aroma. I found myself having 4 sniffs to every sip.
