Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I'm pretty easy when it somes to rum. Pretty much anything is drinkable...except this. I tried it with Diet Coke and it tasted a little off. Tried it again a few days later, still pretty bad. Had it again today, offered my wife some, and she thought it tasted like shoe leather. (Why she is familiar with that I do not know.) Her desciption is quite accurate. What do you do with extra rum? This is a new experience for me. Suggestions welcome.
Well balanced añejo, not too vanilla-ey or sweet. Great Cuba libre, and nice all by itself or with a cigar!
Overall this is a decent enough rum, albeit slightly overpriced. On the nose I didn't pick up much to catch my attention. The taste is more or less the same and I would consider this a base standard for a sipping rum. Hints of vanilla sweetness for me. Finish is dry and a bit rough IMO. Probably better as a mixer/low end sipping rum.
Un ron estándar que para mixear es muy bueno, en realidad hay mejores por el precio.
A bit too strict with sweet tones...not to remember..
This run has a good character but the 7 years aged was not enough to take the bite out, has a little to much strength in the alcohol taste.
Perfectly aromatic vanilla notes. A fine amber mixer, but in British Columbia overpriced.
This rum is for real pirates. This rum isnt for everyone. He isnt sweet. He is truly dry and clean. That taste of clarity can appreciates only professional pirates. This ron is opposite for El Dorado 12 that is so sweet. At nose you are able to think that Angostura 7 is clarity and sweet, but at tongue its heavy and woody. So this isnt proposition for newbe drinkers. This is proposition only for morning pirates:)
This rum has a decent golden colour, with a deep caramel and slight alcohol smell. Sipping it straight is not overly enjoyable... It is syrupy with a slight smoky taste, followed by a medium burn. Makes a decent rum and coke, although a little light (on flavour) for a seven year old.
For the price, like others remarked already, there is better, not pleasant in the mouth, taste of gasoline even.. Not my cup of tea, sorry rum..
I did not detect all the flavors that the first reviewer ( Mr. Outman) did, however, I do like it. For the money it is not a bargain - upwards of $33. I was expecting more distinct flavor from Angostura, THE name in bitters. I will continue to sample other dark rums - what great joy!
Just awful from the smell to the mess of a taste to the terrible afterburn. Stay away from this horrendous poison. Only marginally better than the 5 year old Angostura.
Deep oak but otherwise bland.
Solid mixing but doesn't stand well on it's own.
This is definitely a step up over its younger 5 year old sibling. Not as much burn going down. Similar notes as with the 5 year old with a nice amber color. A flavorful rum that also is appealing to the nose as well. A nice price for a mid range rum distilled in a column still. Yet another good example of a good rum from the island of Trinidad and Tobago. Nice notes of chocolate, honey, maple, oak, toffee and some citrus thrown in. Aged in bourbon casks for up to 7 years.
This makes for a Good Mixer. It's got that barrel flavor you get from aged rum, but its not too sweet or spiced.. it's just got a good RUM flavor which I think lets it not color drinks too much like other rums. Would not drink this straight.
This rum goes easy, it's smooth and had an easy flavour. Sweet smell and and aftertaste. Good for sipping everyday but not extraordinairy.
But thats about the only difference. I really like Angostura rums and this is no exception. Maybe more sippable but still a good mixer for me.
very good mixing Ron for Cuba-Libre and many more Longdrinks.
Not a terrible rum, was fairly smooth straight. Was worth it on sale.
God, len och mjuk. Verkligen helt OK att smutta på en kväll i glada vänners lag:-)!
Jemny, ne moc vyvazeny, ale peknych 5 bodu za 90,- je to cajk
Angostura rums are uncommon in Italy, here the brand is only known for their legendary cocktail bitters.
I bought this bottle online at a very good price, under 20€.
I think it's not bad at all, could be great on short cocktails and you can enjoy it over ice.
As a neat sipper i think that an upgrade to 1919 is required.
I believe that a good amount of caramel is contained, because this rum is darker than 1919 even if it's younger.
One of the best 7 years rums I tasted, well done idd
A nice but not excellent drop , quite sweet which I like (Yes I mix). I cant imagine anybody being offended but there are far better value drops for a few less dollars. Sits between Appletons (VX aka Signature) and Bacardi Gold on my palate. Wont knock it back if offered but I wont buy again.
