Brugal announced the release of its newest expression: a permanent edition prestige sipping rum, Maestro Reserva.

The rum-making process for Maestro Reserva utilizes a proprietary cask toasting technique using American sherry oak casks. The process, called “Dark Aromatic Toasting,” helps create a one-of-a-kind rum, crafted for sipping.

Each generation of Brugal family Maestro Roneros leaves behind a legacy. For Brugal family member and fifth-generation Maestra Ronera, Jassil Villanueva Quintana, Masetro Reserva represents that legacy. Using the Dark Aromatic Toasting technique, Jassil has produced a rum born from years of practice and patience, passed down from generation to generation. Quintana discerns the precise moment when the rum’s elements reach perfection, resulting in a liquid characterized by a naturally smooth, well-rounded, sweetness.

“My family deeply embraces the elegance and soul of Brugal rum, and I’ve absorbed a wealth of wisdom from the generations of Maestro Roneros who came before me,” Quintana said in a news release.

After aging in premium American sherry oak casks, the rum is emptied and carefully placed aside. The American sherry oak casks are immediately toasted to extract natural caramel pearls that are drawn from the sugars in the wood. The casks are then re-filled with the rum, absorbing the delicate caramel pearls created in the wood before being aged under the Dominican sun.

Maestro Reserva is presented in a beautiful bespoke glass decanter. In support of the brand’s focus on sustainability, the secondary packaging for Maestro Reserva is eco-friendly and fully recyclable.

Maestro Reserva (SRP $200) will be available for purchase in the U.S. in select retailers across Florida, Texas, California, New York, and New Jersey beginning in February 2024. It will also be available duty-free at select airports across the U.S. and via e-commerce.
