Brugal 1888 commemorates the year when Andres Brugal founded the Dominican Republic’s number one brand of rum. What distinguishes Brugal 1888 from any other rum is the fact that it’s finished, or aged, a second time in Sherry oak barrels imported from Spain, a deviation from their typical method of aging rum in American oak barrels used to make Bourbon. Distilled for Dryness: Brugal’s distillation removes many of the heavy alcohols that give other rums their sweetness, resulting in a clean, dry and smooth spirit. Aged for Smoothness: Double-wood aged for 6-8 years in White American Oak Casks, followed by 2-4 years in first-filled Spanish Sherry Oak Casks that are hand selected by the Master of wood for the world’s finest Single Malt Scotch Whisky. More evocative of a single malt then a sweet sipping rum, people often call it “The Rum for Whisky lovers”. TASTING NOTES: Color: The light enhances its dark amber hues and bright, clean color. Nose: Fascinatingly complex, with spiced nuances, hints of chocolate, of roasted coffee, cinnamon and other dried fruits. Palate: On the palate, pleasant, smooth and full-bodied. Its finish has nuances of toffee caramel, wood and liquorice. Aftertaste: Brugal 1888 leaves a slightly sweet and long lasting aftertaste, with a sublime taste which denotes perfection.
