Brugal is the market-leading rum in the Dominican Republic and is now a familiar sight in bars up and down the UK after being taken on by a major drinks distributor. If you haven't tried it yet, you're missing out. The nose is full of caramel and dark brown sugar, buttery toffee and a little spice with pepper and vanilla. The palate is smooth and rich and rather dry with buttery spice notes and dark sugar, a little oak. The finish is of good length with dark sugar.
