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.

I always go for the finall net experience and this rum leaves an unimprovable one. Regardless of how, the depth and strength of the flavor(s) achieved by rum are amazing. The vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate, and dry fruit notes are so clear and intense you can almost chew it as you drink it. Excellent as a sipper or with mineral water and lime. It always makes you want to have one more.
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!
I like the Angostura 1919 and prefer this one. Less vanilla, more of other things, seems more balanced. martin jeppesen comments describe quite well my feelings.
NB: I am not a specialist. It just happens that I like rum and I will not hesitate to adjust my reviews to reinforce coherence between my own ratings.
This is a little lighter rum of the super premiums not as complex or heavy as some are but definitley the smoothest I have ever tasted of anything 18 years or less. Angostura has certainly got my vote for a superb Rum maker. A must have for my cabinet.
Every rum to me has a predominant theme, like vanilla, licorice, etc. In this case though it is a mixture of herbs.
The moment you taste it you know there is greatness in this rum. Very smooth and elegant development of taste which stays a long time.
For very special occasions ...
