I was at my local bar today when the liquor salesman stopped by. He gave out some samples of Brugal 1888 and before I even tasted it, I knew it was was something special. Vanilla/coconut notes and more fragrant than the Brugal I've known in the DR. So so smooth, it almost tasted sweetened when it wasn't. The salesman said $45 per bottle wholesale. Geez, at $10 a shot retail, it's still a good deal. This is by far the best rum I've ever had. I wouldn't even mix it to make a Cuba Libre...
