Brugal 1888 comes from a double maturation: first 8 years in American white oak barrels ex bourbon, then another 6 years in European red oak of sherry. This peculiarity gives to the Rum an aromatic range so complex and long that they had to develop a new method of tasting called Linterna (lantern) which provides the heating of the Rum in a copper cup, up to 24-26 ° or the temperature of average environment of his country of origin: the Dominican Republic.
In this way the notes of the American ex-bourbon oak are enhanced and you can see how the cooling during the tasting brings back notes of vanilla, coffee, raisins and dates.
• Nose: sweet scents with burnt oak, dates and honey, with a touch of gentle smoke.
• Palate: buttery and sweet with mou, demerara sugar, manuka honey and smoke.
• Aftertaste: apple toffee and salted butter.
