Brugal XV Reserva Exclusiva 38°: Description and customer reviews

Brugal XV is a unique blend of rums aged in ex-bourbon American white oak barrels for 3 to 8 years and rums that have been aged 2-3 years in ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry barrels.
The result is gourmet. Try it "on the rocks", for a classic Daiquiri. It also provides a good alternative to whisky for an Old Fashioned or a Manhattan.

Nico's tasting notes

In brief: light - woody - caramel - vanilla - coconut - balanced - soft

On the nose, the rum develops familiar notes of woodiness, caramel and vanilla, but this doesn't prevent it from having a strong presence. The impression is one of thickness, the caramel almost palpable. With a little solvent, the caramel first becomes confusingly woody, reminiscent of damp paper or cardboard. Then, with a little insistence, the wood asserts itself in an elegant way with a light varnish with coconut accents.
Giving it time to settle, we find a rather concentrated rum to which some spicy, powdery nuts are added. The wood is well imbibed, the nuts gradually melt into it, and the profile is very pleasant, enriched by vanilla and coconut.

On the palate, the attack is very light, though very round. The rum grazes the taste buds without sticking to them obstinately, but remains quite greedy. The blend of wood, nuts, vanilla caramel and coconut still works well. The caramelized pralines add a little crunch, but the sensation remains spectacularly fluid.

In the finish, we realize that the rum has taken us away and somewhat numbed us. It leaves a vanilla veil on the palate.

"A typically Latino rum, very light, but with pleasant, balanced aromas..."
