Brugal Extra Viejo Reserva Rum is crafted from a blend of rums aged up to 8 years in former bourbon and whiskey barrels.
This rum is produced by the Brugal distillery in the Dominican Republic. Founded in 1888, to this day the company is still run by the Brugal family.
Smooth rum, very little harsh bite. Possibly a hint of spice, but in not overly flavorful. Slightly rubbery and little aftertaste. In general, kind of a boring rum.
Brugal Extra Viejo Gran Reserva Familiar is aged 8 - 12 years in the Dominican Republic. It is quite low priced and shouldn´t be compared with way more expensive premium rums.
The bouquet isn´t really complex and dominated by oak.
So is the body dominated by wood with only little hints of fruits. Brugal Extra Viejo is moderate sweet and has a little harsh aftertaste.
Though it isn`t to complex in taste Brugal Extra Viejo might work well with a nice cigar. Its strong wood character is interesting but not overwhelming.
I would recommend this rum for all of you looking for a cheap non-sweet rum for everyday use.
Typical vanilla, cocoa, oaky flavours with a hint of spice in the finish. Quite heavy at first, would be great stirred on ice for some kind of Treacle.
A nice, tasty rum. Smooth and nothing harsh. However, the finish feels like there is a hole in it. Something is missing. It makes a nice daiquiri and serves as a sipper in a pinch.
