Brugal 1888, a distillery out of the Dominican Republic, that was interestingly enough founded in 1888. Brugal 1888 isn’t your ordinary rum – as Brugal proclaims, this is a rum for Scotch drinkers and they are right. Brugal 1888 is made from rum that has gone through two aging processes. First, the rum ages in American oak barrels for five to eight years and then undergoes a second aging for two to four years in used sherry barrels. For all of you Scotch drinkers, notice any similarities (hint, hint, the used sherry barrels)? This makes the rum unique with distinct rum characteristics (although Brugal is on the dry, woody side of the rum spectrum to begin with) overlayed with toasty, nutty sherry tones.
