Color: A beautiful crystal clear rum with an amber hue which appears brilliant and bright.
Nose: Smooth to the nose with aromatic nuances and a light woodiness. Its aroma is a mixture of honey and dried fruits with traces of caramel.
Palate: Smooth and well-balanced on the palate, with subtle fruity and slightly sweet notes.
Aftertaste: Pleasant aftertaste, light and delicately lingering.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Precise and delicate bouquet of spicy orange peel, white flower and caramel. Quite bright on the palate, slightly smoky and displaying vanilla and baked peach flavors. A lengthy, well-balanced finish with a slight saline quality ensues. (Apr 2014)
Distilled for dryness: Brugalís distillation removes many of the heavy alcohols that give other rums their sweetness, resulting in a clean, dry and smooth spirit.
Aged for smoothness: XV is a unique blend of rums that combine rums aged 3 to 8 years in White American Oak Casks (Former American Whisky) and rums aged 2 to 3 years in ex Pedro Ximenez Sherry Casks. The result is a perfect marriage of dry rums with exceptional smoothness and flavor.
