Wine Enthusiast 86 points - Blending rums aged between three and eight years yields an amber spirit with a mild scent and light body, with notes of vanilla and cassia bark on the finish. Works well mixed with ginger beer in a Dark & Stormy-style drink. (Dec 2011)
Brown rum distilled from fermented molasses. Blend of rums aged up to 8 years in used whiskey and bourbon barrels.
The premium rum from the house of Brugal and the most popular premium rum in the Dominican Republic. Enjoy Brugal Extra Viejo on the rocks where the balanced blend of flavors can really be appreciated.
Lots of dark fruit, roasted cashew, cinnamon with overtones of vanilla on the body give way to the slightly viscous smoky finish.
Bottled at 43% alcohol by volume.
|A DIFFERENT KIND OF RUM
Since 1888, we’ve been creating distinctly different rum, and there are two very important things that set Brugal apart from others.
The first is the Brugal method of distillation, which removes much of what other rums leave in, resulting in a spirit that is cleaner, dryer and less sweet. The second is an unwavering dedication to cask-aging every drop of Brugal, today using the same wood policy as the world’s finest Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Because we cask-age our rum in the year-round heat and humidity of the Dominican Republic, maturation is accelerated, contributing to a balanced, sophisticated family of rums unlike any other.
A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO MAKING IT
Take good care of your home. It’s a simple philosophy, and for the Brugal family, the Dominican Republic has been home for over five generations.
Byproducts from the fermentation process are converted to biogas that now accommodates 70% of the distillery’s power needs. Carbon dioxide is captured from the distillery processes and used for beverage carbonation instead of being released to the atmosphere. The wood from retired barrels is converted to biofuel and the steel is recycled. Brugal leads the spirits industry with a systematic program to reclaim and recycle glass packaging from bar, restaurant and retail partners in the Dominican Republic .
These are just a few of the ways in which we are acting to ensure a positive legacy for the next five generations and beyond.
