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.
Bought a bottle of Angostura 1824 while vacation in Trinidad a few years ago and had high expectations since Angostura is a very well known rum distiller, but the flavor profile is a complete mess and the afterburn is just awful. 1824 is only marginally better than slightly cheaper 1919, but a far cry from a proper neat sipper.
If you like lightly sweet, oaky rum, this is for you. If you can find it, nab a bottle. Great with steak. Tastes are oak, molasses, a touch of sticky honey, and a coy bit of cherry at the end.
Gorgeous bottle, lovely amber colour.
As with the 1919 and similar to St Clement this has the medicinal note to it, which makes it a binary choice: you get it or you don't.
Majoring on El Dorado and Foursquare, I don't get it.
Well, this one is sneaky. The 1824 feels like you're drinking a 20 proof child's version of rum. There is little aroma and even less flavor. It's as if someone has poured water into a half-full rum bottle. It doesn't taste bad, it just doesn't taste.
