Now this is some good stuff
The vanilla that supposedly comes from 1st fill bourbon is just an artificial essence vanilla. Anyone who's tastes numerous rums and whiskies from 1st fill bourbon casks can tell this in a second. What a shame, Angostura.
I bought this bottle a few months back and at first I wasn’t a huge fan. After a few sessions I have really started to love the complex oak finish this one has. It starts with a sweet rum and finishes likes a nice aged bourbon. I would recommend this to any person who prefers whiskey and scotch, but wants to try rums.
Purchased a sample from Master of Malt for £8 after the trying the 17 18 and 19. It's spent 10 years in oak casks and another 6 in French ex cognac.
Nose is inviting with caramel and fruit and touch of complexity. Very nice flavour sweet and rich in the mouth wonderfully smooth. Just delightful to sip.
I thought it was completely sold out in Europe, but then I found some bottles on a German site to complete my last bottle. So now I have four of it.
In the aroma you smell nuts and it’s quite sweet, but not too sweet. The taste is very smooth, len and sweet. The sweetness is a little bit alike almond paste. In the finish I believe you can recognise both apple, vanilla and chocolate.
If you get the opportunity to buy a bottle of it, don’t hesitate. BUY IT!!!
Now I also have tested the 3rd Edition but it didn’t reach the level of the 1st and 2nd.

This is a very good cask rum , plenty of bite which made me think it was higher than 40%. It needs to be left in the glass for at least 15 mins , has a strong alcohol aroma which takes a bit of clearing ! Beautiful colour and a nice presentation. Still a strong mouth feel but pleasurable , tastes of barrel , molasses and quite spicy. Its sweetish but not over the top , short finish but a great tasting rum overall. Also good value over here which makes a pleasant change !!
