Nice article. Thanks Matilda. I really love Brugal Extra Viejo but can only get it here when I head from Philly to NYC or to DC. What is the price for a bottle of Siglo de Oro and can I get it in the capitol?
Appears to be from 3,000 to 3,200 RD$, and is on sale in some of the supermarkets. From Google search it seems it should be cheaper in the duty free shops at the airports. Other reports said it was hard to find!Nice article. Thanks Matilda. I really love Brugal Extra Viejo but can only get it here when I head from Philly to NYC or to DC.

It sounds like you fit right into the family...:cheeky:my family proudly represents few generations of clandestinos i watched moonshine making before i was able to walk: from grains, sugar, potatoes...
interestingly as a child i thought rum was more like wine than spirit because in the pirate movies it was always drank directly from the bottle and i knew that vodka was drunk in shots and (cheap) wine from the bottle
Eddy has it in stock, well not the 5 star, but the regular stuff. Even the regular stuff is a lot smoother, and nicer in taste than the Dominican rum. Mind you, it ain't cheap. I think it is around 600 rds for a bottle.I have only had it recommended to me and didn't know how to spell it obviously.
What is your opinion of it, say compared to Dominican rums?
so tastes are personal. I personally do not like the brugal extra viejo (i like the anejo, and sometimes like to switch to barcelo). I feel it is like drinking cough syrup. For me it has a real medicinal taste to it.I bought some Barbancourt in Haiti and shared it with a few aid workers and it was ok but everybody liked the Brugal Extra Viejo better. The Barbancourt had almost a hint of a tequila taste to a couple of us.
