Distilled from 100% Dominican Republic molasses in the company’s continuous, two-column still, the fresh distillate is aged in used, medium-toasted, American white oak casks between five and fourteen years. After aging in American oak casks, the maturation process continues in select European first-filled sherry casks. Unlike most of the other Brugal rums, the casks for Brugal 1888 are aged horizontally, ensuring more contact between the wood and the spirit.
The result is a bright, dark amber spirit that beckons to be tasted.
The nose opens with hints of tropical flowers followed by chocolate, spice and fruit notes. The initial taste of chocolate and dried fruit yields to a complex smooth mouthfeel highlighted by ripe pear, raisin, wood and dark fruit. The finish is long and smooth. Toffee, cararmel, smoky oak and notes of spice usher the palate through the finish.
