Brugal hails from the Dominican Republic, where the rums are made from molasses. They use a column still to produce their rums, which results in a lighter flavoured rum. These styles or flavours, are great when using rums in punch-style cocktails or clean flavoured mixed drinks. This rum has spent a bit longer in barrels than the Extra Dry and it hasn't been filtered, so it still has a great depth of colour. Very versatile rum, so can be used in mixed drinks, cocktails or drunk neat. The nose has crÃ¨me brÃ»lee and mocha coffee notes with banana and oak. The crÃ¨me brÃ»lee sugar top is more distinct on the palate with coffee and dry black pepper also apparent. The finish is dry and oaky.
