Top reviews for Brugal 1888 Rum:

— Very VERY good rum!!!

— 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.

— This was my choice in first quarter order...please restock this as I wish to reorder in January. The rum is extremely rich in complex mouth and nose experiences. Many of my favorite ingredients. I'll need to find another way to order this if unavailable through you. Neat or mixed... it's superb !

Very VERY good rum!!!
 
John
John,
Very woody and hogo funkiness up front, then molasses and spice on the way out. A good sipper.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Good sipping rum. Not too sweet. Pairs nicely with your favorite cigars
 
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
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!

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.

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