Proof66 Notes


Brugal Especial Extra Dry silver rum is what they call a "refreshingly dry rum" eschewing the typical sweetness. It is aged between 2 and 5 years, then charcoal-filtered to create a clear product rather than the typical golden cast of aged rums.


The Proof66 Staff had a crack at the Brugal, noting its dry character but wondering if it was too muted for a true sipping rum.

The 2012 Wine Enthusiast review suggested it is "destined for tiki drinks."

About the Producer:

Brugal & Co is one of the three main production companies in the Dominican Republic and holds three separate distilleries. The Ron Brugal company takes its name from Don Andres Brugal Montaner, who immigrated to the Dominican Republic and began the production of rum. The best estimate is a founding in 1888. The Edrington Group gained a majority stake in the company in 2008.

We compared the Brugal straight up to Bacardi Light. The Brugal certainly looks more exciting with its net around the bottle. But we can’t say that the difference is stark enough to go out of your way to buy it. Is it good? Yes. Is it competent? Yes. Would we drink it? Certainly. Would we pass up Bacardi to get it? Probably if it were the same general price. But would we seek it out for its own sake when the Bacardi was instantly available? No… we would grab a fifth of Bacardi and be perfectly happy with that if we were looking for a sliver rum.
