The Rum for Whisky lovers.
 
Don Andres Brugal Montaner launched Brugal in 1888 to break away from the traditional styles of the time and to create a distinctly different Rum. Apparently there are two things that set Brugal apart from others. First, the method of distillation, which removes much of what other Rums leave in. The spirit is thus cleaner, dryer and less sweet. Secondly, every drop of Brugal is cask-aged, using the same wood policy as the World’s best single malt Scotch Whiskies.
 
Brugal 1888 Rum is distilled for dryness - Brugal’s distillation removes many of the heavy alcohols that give other Rums their sweetness. Distilled from fermented molasses, this is a blend of Rums aged from 5 to 14 years in American white oak casks, and finish matured in first-fill Sherry oak casks.

Thomas
Thomas,
Too much alcohol as an aftertaste. Otherwise sweetness is not over-powering. Strong caramel flavor and smell.

Cherie,
Really enjoyed this neat and in Mai Tai cocktail. Having tasting with friends and family in November and December.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Dangerously smooth ever so lightly sweet at the end.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
An awesome bottle and surprisingly smoky after taste that leaves you wanting more, a great sipping rum.

Bruce,
Love the spirit. I want it to be an 8, but it feels like it’s trying to be something it’s not. There are conflicting flavors. The sweet molasses is in hiding but the traditional oak cask flavors aren’t taking over. Don’t get me wrong, it’s delicious... but not a home run.
 
Scott
Scott,
Seemed a lot lighter and less sweet than other rums. Really pleasant and nicely balanced.

Kenneth,
really good, smooth mellow, full of flavor and not to sweet

Phil,
This bottle was a neat treat! A couple years back I went to Puerto Plata DR for vacation and had the opportunity to tour Brugal. I was impressed by their operations and rums but didn't get the chance to purchase any. 1888 is definitely a good rum for whiskey drinkers. Not very sweet ... nice spicy aroma and very woody taste. Okay on its own (would probably be tasting neat or on the rocks) but I love it in rum and cokes!

Sonali,
A yummy rum for those who like whisk(e)y but find bourbon to be too sweet. Nice toffee and caramel notes & little sweet and spicy notes. Dry and not sticky. It's very drinkable and makes a nice run floater atop of a pina colada.

Pretty good. Didn’t sit well with me though near the end of the bottle. Maybe I had a bad bottle with contaminants near the end.

The description is accurate. It's kind of a hybrid.
