Had the same drink made with Bacardi and then with Brugal Extra Viejo, completely different flavor. Brugal was sweeter, richer and smoother. Outstanding rum as a mixer.

I lived in Miami for a decade and a half and met many who insisted Brugal was the best rum compared to Barcardi and Havana club. Each claimed to be the best made in the Carribbean but buying bottles of each and hosting our own taste-tests party with nationals of different Carribbean nations proved the best for mixers was Brugal, the best on the rocks was Barcardi.

Brugal Extra Viejo, aged eight years or more, is my personal favorite. In the Dominican Republic you can get a bottle for less than five US dollars. Of course it costs more in the US but for me it is worth it.

If you are fortunate to cruise the Carribbean, Porta Plata is a common port stop. There you can visit a Brugal distillery. It does include free samples at the end of its short tour. That experience is excellent to determine which Brugal variety taste best for you. You can bring back five bottles with the first being duty free. Going through customs has always been easy; they don't bother to charge you the extra 20 cents per bottle (bottles 2 through 5). I have always been waived through.

Drinking it straight brings out its smooth taste. A caramel-like taste is an often heard assessment. The aroma is also light as you might expect from good rum.

I do like the other aforementioned rums but when I look forward to a great rum mix, I always look for Brugal.

I had this bottle in my collection for 6 or so years. I tried it a few weeks ago and I must say its very very good! It has a lot of oak and baking spices and reminds me of an older demerara rum a bit. I would compare this to El dorado 12 year. I would say this expression is nothing like any other expressions brugal has out there. Far different. Why I'm not really sure but its worth trying if you like el dorado rums.

I agree with a previous comment: "interesting for its price". It is a rum you find everywhere, and where there is not premium choice, Extra Viejo is my choice.

Nice woody and leathery aroma. This tobaco style rum will be good with some quality cigar. Rum is deep, rich and serious. it is strong enough but not too much. Quite dry.

Feiner Rum für jede Gelegenheit, obwohl zum mixen fast zu schade.
