This is a very good rum, especially for introducing your friends to the world of aged rums. It won't drain your wallet and it will show your bourbon snob buddies that there is something other than corn liquor.

Just a good solid rum - nothing unpleasant about it. Not too sweet, some nice tobacco and leather notes.

N- Lush of promising nutmeg, spice tea, minted chocolate and exotic local fruits initially, but these compote of fine notes gone hiding after a few seconds, before reemerge and sways towards tobacco smokes in the middle, light whiff of rubber lurking, earthy, toffee and tannic of coffee with classic banana. Well integrated, playful and fragrant without being flabby. (21/25)

P- Ripened sweet fruits coated with butter and bitter caramel, butterscotch, waxy, spices and burns charred nuances. Medium body, balanced, round and velvet. (20/25)

F- Medium, nutty, waxy and chewy with restrained spiciness and sweetness. (19/25)

Balance- 20/25

Weighted Rate:- 80pt

It's Saturday night and it's time for the rum review. The house of Angostura can trace its start back to 1824 when a German Doctor, Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert,who at the time was a Surgeon General for the Venezuelan Army. He created the now world famous blend of herbs of which we know as Angostura bitters. When he developed this blend he called it Amargo Aromatica. Originally founded in the one called little town of Angostura (now called Bulivar city),the production was relocated by his son and grandson to the Port of Spain, Trinidad in 1876. Remaining famous for its aromatic bitters the rum was starting to get well known. Their rums are and have been distilled in a 5 column still and have been awarded several awards for gold and silver for all the rums they make. The Angostura 7 year old rum is no different, 80 proof and produced by taking out of the first column a good helping of heavy distillate it is then aged in American white oak and then blended with one that's been through the entire 5 column system. Once blended it is then aged for an additional 7 years to mature in single used American Bourbon barrels. Once aged it is again blended and bottled at 40% alcohol by volume. In the glass Angostura 7 year is light amber and gold in color and leaves a thin film on the inside of my snifter. Once the medium thin legs form they slowly crawl back to the reservoir. This rum is loaded in aromatics and flavor. Upon first pouring, butterscotch, vanilla and fine pipe tobacco fill the air above the glass. After a few minutes a milk chocolate and a fine Equadorian coffee arise and join the other scents. The entry is extraordinary and smooth. Lightly sweet with honey and oak spice flavor. This is followed after adding a ball of ice, butterscotch mixed with orange zest making this one very sippable rum. The finish makes it even better a good vanilla bean flavor from the oak goes down smooth with almost no burn.
Drinks can range from the Cuba Librè to a frozen tropical drink. This eve I'm drinking it with Goslings ginger beer a splash of Austrian peach schnapps and key lime juice. Neat is the favorite but I have to have a cocktail with the review. This rum will be transferred to my onion bottle once the review is posted. For the weekend that's it from me have fun with the remaining weekend visit family if their close by or at least call them up and wish them joy and happiness. Till the next week stay safe stay alert stay alive and drink responsibly. Another great rum will be reviewed by yours truly, till then down the hatch.

Good standard rum. Excellent sipper and a good mixer.

Vanilla on the nose, taste of caramel, spice, slight oak and tobacco ending, all very pleasant, balanced and gentle. The burn is almost unnoticeable compared to the 5y old sibling. Good value for the money.

Not bad. Just starting out. So a good starter rum. Had it on rocks. Took a bit to come in but after a bit was really smooth.

I could say that is a going well with coke, but man, for the price range you should find something else without coke

Final verdict: I will not buy it again

If you like the unmistakable unique taste of Angostura rums, then go for whichever one of them your budget can afford. This one was $28. I personally think that their 1919 represents the best value and taste. This line of rums clearly falls into the Love Them Or Hate Them category.
