Color: The light enhances its dark amber hues and bright, clean color. Nose: Fascinatingly complex, with spiced nuances, hints of chocolate, of roasted coffee, cinnamon and other dried fruits. Palate: On the palate, pleasant, smooth and full-bodied. Its finish has nuances of toffee, caramel, wood and liquorice. Aftertaste: Brugal 1888 leaves a slightly sweet and long lasting aftertaste, with a sublime taste which denotes perfection.
