Angostura 1824 rum is a blend of rums aged for at least 12 years in oak barrels. The aged rums are blended, re-casked, and upon maturity hand-drawn for bottling.
This rum is named and crafted in honor of Dr. Johann Siegart's founding of Angostura house in the city of Angostura, Venezueala in 1824. Angostura 1824 rum production is now based in Trinidad.
Beautiful spanish-style blended rum. Heavy notes of vanilla. However, if I want to have a rum like this around going forward, I will likely go with the Angostura 1919 as I find it very, very close in flavor profile to the 1824.
Love the dark colour and the very smooth finish of this rum. The toffee flavour is definitely coming through, making it a lovely rum to have neat.
Will be... .
When it comes to Angostura, stick with the well proven. 1824 is complex, but too smooky and devoid of any fruityness. Not worth the extra price!
I love Angostura as a company, brand, and facet of history for the country I live in, but 1824 is the red headed step child of an otherwise tenured lineup of casked product. I drink all my alcohol (with few exceptions, but rules have to have those, right?) straight, no ice, no chaser of any kind, because I like the overall flavour of the rum, including the burn and aftertaste. This rum has a smooth (overly so for my tastes) body, almost no nose, and light burn in the tongue, none in the throat nor chest. The flavour man, it's killing me - it tastes like fermented Haw Flakes (look those up, they have a weird tangy punch that's unique to the candy and this rum) drowned in water with a smidge of Royal Oak added. Most of the palate is in the aftertaste, and if you chase rum like me for their invigorating burn of sugar with a mélange of seasoned oak smatterings throughout, then I cannot recommend this rum - if you prefer a sipper that's so smooth it can be used in a hypothetical physics environment (with assumed no air resistance), then yes, this is the rum for you. It's a rum that plays more to its aftertaste than its nose, so be prepared for that at the very least.
This is a real nice rum. Rich taste, a little sweet, not too strong with a mild burn. I like it a lot!
I have longed for the Cast Collection Number 1, but no more. This does not completely replace it's unbelievably velvety flavor, but this exhibits 85% of the characteristics of that gorgeous batch.
This is an ok example of a 12 year rum. It is smooth and clean. It does not have much in the way of flavor, depth, or aroma. It’s not the worst I’ve tried, and not the best. Just average. Would expect more from a $60 bottle.
First impression: fruity, soft, raisin and a long finish.
Nose: orange, plum, raisin, vanilla
taste: smooth, round, full in the mouth
perfect rum and everybody darling in the tasting.
Tried this rum at a restaurant because it did not have any of my go to rums. I actually liked this rum a lot. It was balanced and not overly sweet. I don’t like sweet rum. I’ll buy this one again.
Was a quite expensive bottle, but we did not like it straight, on the rocks, mixed...
Caramel and vanilla in the aroma. Quite sweety start of the body and almost no tail.
A wonderful nose that hints at things to come. Perfect neat with a full range of flavors with a slight burn with some sweetness. Great for sitting in front of the fireplace.
Added just a touch of coke to try later and enjoyed that immensely. Changed the profile slightly but still had a broad flavor profile.
Overall this is a better sipper that the 1912 and will get a spot in my bar.
Nice sipper with lots of flavours. Sweet but not to sweet, vanilla, tobacco, butterscotch and with an hint of smokiness.
Odd taste notes, tobacco etc. Clearly an essence-bomb, despite of Angostura always saying they do not put in essences (well, lab tests say otherwise). sweetened. Unnatural vanilla. Thin base spirit. No thanks. Has gotten from not so nice to truly awfully poor in its lifetime. Weak.
First, I found this way better than the disappointing 1919, which I found oily and lacklustre. This has a lot more oak, molasses and fruit (possibly mango and banana). On the negative side, the added sugar seems to dampen the experience rather than add anything at all to it. I also found it had a slight burn on the aftertaste.
Deep amber color. Molasses and vanilla on the nose. Upon sipping, you are hit with a sweetness that mellows out to oak. Then there is a subtle bite ate the back end as burnt banana and toffee exits the nose.
Wonderfully smooth, complex, and reserved. Flavors of oak, leather, and tobacco make this an excellent sipper and it's certainly worth making it last at the price point. It would be a travesty to mix this with Coke or even make something basic like a dark n' stormy with this rum. In fact, I currently use it only in my zombie (with a generous 1.5 oz pour) which is a kick in the face best enjoyed by lovers of rum in the first place. It takes a lot for me to really view a rum as something primarily to be enjoyed neat (as a tiki cocktail enthusiast) and this is the first rum that really makes me feel guilty for mixing.
Rum starts from dark chocolate taste and goes to oak. Didn't liked this angostura.
This one has a decent flavor to it, a bit sweet, but on the rocks it is very good. Better straight than mixed.
Oaky, a bit harsh and a bit sour. Interesting and different rum. But let it breathe for a long time before the first sip. A liked it but this rum is different in a good way.
Tried this after the bartender made an intro. Weak color. Not to sweet. Balanced body. A little bit sweet aftertaste but you are loosing quickly. Always with ice and dont mix it
Mjuk rund smak, behaglig sötma. Lite smörig kanske men överraskande god faktiskt, en rom man kan softa gott med när som helst.
This was the first sipping rum I tasted, and still the only rum I always keep in my cabinet. As a whisky lover, I love the hint of smoke. Complex undertones and not too sweet. Simply delicious!
