Brugal 1888 Rum
Daniel,
I did it on ice,straight, and with coconut water and it was fantastic all 3 ways but straight up I could taste the spices and citrus better
Brugal 1888 Rum
Chris,
If you are a whiskey drinker and you are looking for something to compliment those tastes, this is the perfect rum for you. Flavors of toffee and caramel first hit your taste buds and a lingering liquorice finish. This will become a staple of my bar cart.

Russell,
Great bang for the buck! Great packaging
Brugal XV
Stuart,
For me, this is THE perfect rum. Not too expensive and the flavours are just spot on - smooth to boot!
Brugal Rum Extra Viejo
Stuart,
Drank nothing but this stuff in Dominican Republic. Great as a sipper as it is in a cocktail or with lime and cola. I would always recommend this rum
Brugal 1888 Rum
Stuart,
Decent rum, personally I prefer the Brugal XV. This is a little harsh with a butterscotch taste which I liked
Brugal Especial Extra Dry Rum
Stuart,
Exceptionally smooth, one of my go-to rums. Always have a bottle on the shelf
Brugal 1888 Rum
Robert,
Eh! It was ok, I am a Bourbon drinker and this really didn't fit my tastes. It is a smooth sipper, but I will probably experiment with it to find a way to perk up the flavor.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Jerome,
This is good stuff! It has a light caramel taste but not too sweet. It finishes smooth with just a little heat.

Robert,
Good rum, nothing stood out to me compared to other rums.

Shaeli,
Possibly a good mixer, not a straight sipper for me.

Outstanding
Brugal 1888 Rum

This is a rum for the bourbon drinker. Smooth and flavor a normal bourbon drinker like me should like.

So much better than the usual Brugal.

James,
Undrinkable unless mixed
Brugal 1888 Rum
James,
I got this because the description said if you like whiskey you would like this rum. I do not. To me it is undrinkable unless mixed with something overpowering.

Jeff,
Really good! Many layers of flavor.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Michael,
Smooth and semi sweet. Delicious!
Brugal 1888 Rum
Lee,
I just finished the Extra Mile tasting box of rums then broke out my bottle of 1888. Even after tasting 3 other rums, 1888 was the best. Great value as well.

Michael,
Great smooth Rum
Brugal 1888 Rum
Lee,
I have been waiting for the weather to get a little warmer to try this bottle. Yesterday was the day and worth the wait. A great sipper.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Dan,
So good. Like bourbon
Brugal Añejo
Michael,
Smooth and surprisingly dry. Tastes of butter, molasses and pepper. Enjoyed it neat.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Stefanie,
WHOA, this is WAY too easy to drink straight. So incredibly tasty and smooth, we're trying to ration ourselves from having a glass every night, but will definitely be ordering more

Joseph,
Caramel Oak tasting notes were awesome! Enjoyed this bottle for sure.

Just good! Whether on it’s on it’s own or mixed.
Brugal 1888 Rum
MIGUEL,
Good rum, not too sweet, not to oaky. Easy to drink or mix but not sure if I would buy another bottle because there are so many better Rums out there that I like. Very good rum though.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Doug,
I think this is a good rum with a nice depth and complexity. It is a bit heavy on the back side with respect to the alcohol burn, but has a nice caramelly flavor on the front side and then a vanilla follows the burn for a nice finish. As rums are not my usual go-to, I don't have a large pool to compare against, but it is good neat, which has to mean something, right?
Brugal Rum Extra Viejo
Patrick,
Always consistent. A solid value for a great sipping rum.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Cherie,
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 !
Brugal 1888 Rum
Angela,
good sipping rum. a little burn on the finish, but good overall
Brugal 1888 Rum
George,
Very VERY good rum!!!
Brugal 1888 Rum
John,
Very woody and hogo funkiness up front, then molasses and spice on the way out. A good sipper.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Jeff,
Good sipping rum. Not too sweet. Pairs nicely with your favorite cigars
Brugal 1888 Rum
Thomas,
Too much alcohol as an aftertaste. Otherwise sweetness is not over-powering. Strong caramel flavor and smell.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Cherie,
Really enjoyed this neat and in Mai Tai cocktail. Having tasting with friends and family in November and December.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Ryan,
Dangerously smooth ever so lightly sweet at the end.
Brugal Extra Viejo Gran Reserva Familiar
guest,
Love it!
Brugal 1888 Rum
Matthew,
An awesome bottle and surprisingly smoky after taste that leaves you wanting more, a great sipping rum.
Brugal 1888 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.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Scott,
Seemed a lot lighter and less sweet than other rums. Really pleasant and nicely balanced.
Brugal 1888 Rum
Kenneth,
really good, smooth mellow, full of flavor and not to sweet
Brugal 1888 Rum
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!
Brugal 1888 Rum
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.
Brugal 1888 Rum
guest,
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.
Brugal Añejo
Justin,
Not for sipping neat. Could be ok with rocks or water. Best used as a mixer for solid cocktails.
Brugal Añejo Reserva Rum
guest,
The absolute best rum under $60. Very fine.
Brugal Añejo
Javier,
This is another rum for mixing. My suggestion is not for sipping by itself.
Brugal Añejo
Jordan,
Very good rum... I just don't love rum
