j'aime beaucoup ce rhum...
Parfumé, long en bouche...
il reste présent dans le verre vide et on apprécie encore plus le 2e verre.
bien plus intéressant et complexe que son petit frère 1919, il est un permanent de mon bar

Sugar: 16 gpl. A smooth rum with a heavy taste of Oak and tobacco with a hint of dark chocolate and vanilla. It's not a sweet rum and at $80 per bottle I don't see the value in this over some other rums in that price range The 1824 is a good tasting rum and it's worth having in your collection for it's different taste.

Good flavor, but the bite dominates. $'s don't equate.

edit-a fresh tasting/ that 6 may be too high. Something is overpowering here.

edited to add sugar test results- 18g

...while it might be better, the price difference in the UK at least, just doesn't make sense. OK the 1919 is much more commercial and a crowd pleaser but it is about half the price. It is rich and complex, but the price just makes my view of it a little jaundiced.

One if the smoother rums I've had. Just the right amount of slight spice with a shorter finish than expected. Strong brown sugar nose. Woodsy notes with a touch of molasses. Lacks some character and depth, or would have gone to 8 or 9.

I like the soft oak pallet in this one, with some dried fruits and smoke. The nose is more herbal, and the finish is some kind of spicy cola.

Great nose, not too sweet, not too dry. Good taste - well balanced.

Der Angostura 1824 ist ein Blend aus verschiedenen Trinidad Rums die mindestens 12 Jahre in amerikanischen Eichenholz Fässern lagern durften. Ist er fertg geblendet bekommt er sein Finish nochmals in den selben Fässern. Die "alte" Version wurde von Hand abgefüllt. Ob es bei der aktuellen Version auch noch so ist weiß ich nicht. Es steht zumindestens nicht mehr auf dem Label. Die alte Flasche war hochwertig und mit dem großen Holzkorken ein echter Hingucker. Ob der Rum Zusatzstoffe hat weiß ich nicht, ist aber im Bereich des Möglichen.

Der Angotura 1824 hat eine schöne Mischung aus Süße und Rauch in der Nase. Die Schärfe vom Alkohol verfliegt nach ein paar Minuten. Beim Trinken schmeckt man sofort Süße tropische Früchte und Vanille vom Eichenholz. Holzig rauchige Aromen bleiben auf der Zunge und umgarnen die vorhandene Schärfe welche aber noch nicht unangenehm ist. Mittellang verabschiedet sich der Rum mit leicht süßer Note und angenehmen Fassnoten.

Der Angostura 1824 ist ein Rum der nicht langweilig wird. Er ist für den Preis von ca. 50 Euro gut zu trinken und muss sich nicht verstecken. Er Alkohol könnte etwas milder sein. Einer der Rums die ich immer noch mal kaufen wollte. Aber nur die alte Version. Flaschen Design und das Versprechen "Hand crafted " machen ihn attraktiver als den aktuellen Nachfolger. Aber dann war da auch der Angostura Skandal und man fragt sich wie Glaubhaft ist das alles wirklich. Also doch lieber andere Rums probieren!

The Angostura 1824 is a blend of various Trinidad rums that were allowed to be stored in American oak barrels for at least 12 years. The Blend gets his finish in the same used barrels. The "old" version was filled by hand. I don't know if the current version is the same. At least it is no longer on the label. The old bottle was of high quality and with the large wooden cork a real eye-catcher. Whether the rum has additives I do not know, but is in the realm of possibility.

The Angotura 1824 has a nice mixture of sweetness and smoke in the nose. The sharpness of the alcohol evaporates after a few minutes. When drinking, you immediately taste sweet tropical fruits and vanilla from oak. Woody smoky aromas remain on the tongue and envelop the existing sharpness, which is not yet unpleasant. Midway through, the rum bids farewell with a slightly sweet note and pleasant barrel notes.

The Angostura 1824 is a rum that does not get boring. For the price of about 50 euros and does not have to hide. He could be a little milder. One of the rums I still wanted to buy again. But only the old version. Bottle design and the promise of "hand crafted" make him more attractive than the current successor. But then there was the Angostura scandal and one wonders how credible all this is really. So i prefer testing and buying other rums!
