Review: Brugal Anejo

  • Jun 18, 2010

“I am sipping a little Brugal Ron Anejo closing my eyes and letting my imagination build a place where the rum takes me….  Its late afternoon, and I have I found myself at a road side cafe near the ocean, separated from, but within walking distance of a small Dominican Village.  I’m sitting on an old wooden cabana chair with the smells of the nearby village caught up in the canvas umbrella overhead.  Oils from the roadside, and saps from the trees overhead have speckled the umbrella, mixing with the canvas and leather only to be washed out by the rain every now and again.  Some large ceramic urns with banana trees stand on the patio nearby.  The table beside me has a bowl of dried  fruit and exotic looking nuts for me to chew on.   Inside the cafe they must be baking, as I can smell  banana bread and sticky cinnamon rolls whenever the door opens.

Across the road there is a path to the ocean.   I can see the roll of ocean surf in the distance as the waves break on a rock strewn coastline.  Occasionally a gust of wind brings a little of the ocean brine across my face…..”

OH YEAH! You nailed this one right on the nose! Everytime I buy a bottle of Brugal, I can't help but remember your thoughts on that last lingering note. The musty leather is quite interesting, but the final oceanic note is almost, dare I say, obvious; though no one has been bold enough to express its presence like your review does.

Quick Tip by . September 08, 2010
3 or 4cubes of ice in the bottom of a glass, cover the ice cubes with Anejo enough to barely make the ice float in the rum. fill the rest of the glass with apple juice and a splash of cranberry juice at the top. Or just fill the rest of the glass with filtered water and a splash of either juice at the top. You can tell that I like to sip rum straight or with just enough water to quell the alcohol bite. mmm, quality pirate rations!

About this topic


The Brugal distillery was founded in 1888, by Andrés Brugal Montaner.  Over the next one hundred and twenty years the company grew steadily, and it is now one of the three largest distilling companies in the Dominican Republic.  The original family which founded Brugal is still in the control. George Arzeno Brugal, is the current chairman, and most of the board members are direct descendants of the original company founder.

In fact, the Brugal Distillery has become an institution in the Dominican Republic.  Pretty much every friend I have who has visited this wonderful Country has a vivid tale to tell of a an amazing bus ride to the distillery,  ….  and a tale to tell of how much fun it was to sample the rum.

The Brugal Ron Anejo is a blend of rums aged from 2 to 5 years.
