Brugal Añejo

Brugal Anejo is a 5 year old Dominican rum. The company was founded by Andrés Brugal Montaner. The majority of the board members are actually descendants of Montaner.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is full of caramel and dark brown sugar, buttery toffee and a little spice with pepper and vanilla. The palate is smooth and rich and rather dry with buttery spice notes and dark sugar, a little oak. The finish is of good length with dark sugar.

Memories of Spain.
I often drank this when I lived in Spain, great with ice and a mixer, so I drink it now with home made tapas. x

Issues with cork taint
Tasted this as part of a set of drinks by the dram and I was taken aback by the intense aroma of cork taint. This is one of only a few spirits I've tasted affected by taint and obviously it could come from several parts of the production process... A quick Google search for "corked rum" returns several references to Brugal on the first page, so I wonder if this is a long-term issue their production. Old barrels could be the culprit, or indeed corks used to seal the bottles. It's pretty hard to taste past the cork taint but beneath it, there's a nice rich vanilla palate and soft caramel notes. A shame!

Amazing value for the price
This is truly beautiful tasting Rum, sweet and smooth, but with enough "fire" to keep it interesting. I had the more expensive Brugal a while ago, and was not overly impressed with it, this however is right up my street and for less than £20 cannot be beaten for value. Deep rich chocolate, carmel and Molasses flavours.

Bought a bottle on a recommendation from one of my coworkers. I am sightly disappointed. Drinking it neat, the aroma is nice, a mild caramel-ish sweet, and the burn is subtle. However it is followed by what I can only describe as possibly a plant based aromatic. Reminds me of cellulose a bit. I see mentions on here about the flavor changing and I might expect this is the case as my coworker literally called it the best rum he had ever drank neat. It's definitely good enough for some rum and cola, so I think that is how I will enjoy the rest of the bottle I have. I'm giving 3 stars because the burn is subtle. The unidentified aromatic is a bummer.

They seem to have changed the flavour recently, it was my favourite rum but not now. They ruined the Brugal white also, undrinkable now.

A rum as smooth as they come. A great drink.
A wonderful smooth delicious dark rum. Just the best. It has that great easy smooth taste on the tongue unmatched by others. A winner and favourite in my opinion.
