UK. The Edrington Group and Maxxium Global Travel Retail presened two new varieties from fast-growing Dominican Republic rum brand Ron Brugal – Brugal Añejo Reserva and Brugal Extra Viejo Reserva – at the TFWA World Exhibition last week.

The two new expressions from Brugal will be sold exclusively in the travel retail channel from January 2009.

Both reserve variants are created from a selection of aged rums with a long and intense maturation process, exceeding that of other rums.

The Añejo Reserva has a bright, clean, amber liquid with a woody aroma and a slight hint of chocolate and caramel.

The Extra Viejo Reserva has a dark, transparent amber hue and an aroma of wood, dried fruits, almonds and a touch of spice.
