It’s Brugal. A Family owned distillery in the Dominican Republic.


I have a bottle of the Extra Viejo Gran Reserva Familia that I bought while in the Dominican Republic in 2008. At that time the Ministry of Rum had it on the list of 10 best rums in the world.

10 Cane or Brugals (spelling) for me.  Maybe now as we've just arrived into Port...

Hi Chuck,

For run o' the mill straight-up rum I like (in no particular order):
Lemon Hart
Newfoundland's Screech
Cruzan (gold, I think)
Bacardi Gold

For extra special sips:
Santiago de Cuba
Bacardi 8 year
Havana Club 5 or 7 year

and extra extra special:
Smuggler's Cove "Rare Find"
cask #1 - 212 of 302... $150 per 750mL
        Oh my!

        Cheers, Russ
        Sweet 35 mk-1

Our store had Barrits so we tried our first Dark & Stormys with ice, Barritts Ginger Beer and Goslings Dark Rum and real fresh limes.
I like the effect before stirring, but the rum floats on top, and the stirred drink is nicer mixed flavor.

Had a second one without the lime, also nice.

Have Goya Ginger Beer from the local ACME and will have to try that another time.

Is there a rum meant more for sipping straight?
