Notes

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.

The Brugal Extra Viejo is the premier expression from Brugal, hand-selecting aged Dominican rum casks from the family cellars. It has a curious little yellow netting around the bottle that makes it a bit "tippy" on the table... careful!

Pleasantly light with a dusty sweetness. A dry rum, it doesn't saturate the palate as much as I prefer in a sipper though in a flight of rums it really stands out. It would be interesting to experiment with in in cocktails that benefit from a dry, light approach.

At The Rum Project (link follows), Sue Sea and I have reviewed well over 100 rums. We found the Extra Viejo most interesting. There are really four or five "styles" of rum (eg Jamaican style, Cuban, Cane Juice, Demeraran, Barbadian) but we do believe the Dominican rums may represent yet another style, due to an identifiable corky/musty aroma (not in a bad way). A different, but very nice rum. For the complete review, and many more, click here: http://rumproject.com/rumforum//index.php

disappointing. I wanted to like it, but it was just bitter and too harsh for a medium-priced rum. after-notes were bland. with each new sip, i cry out for something new and fresh, but to no avail!
