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!

This is a great sipping rum. More of a subtle flavor.

This one is confusing. I can’t place the aromas or flavor, but overall it’s a nice rum. It’s hard to compare to other rum I have sampled.

The nose is caramel and fruit, but the flavor is vanilla and honey? I like it, but not sure I’m ready to buy a bottle.

It’s light, compared to other aged rums but it lacks the purity of unadulterated rums like Appleton estate or RL Seales.

Sweet and flavorful, with a nice finish, this rum is a nice sipper but it’s a bit hot. Definitely be smoother with an ice cube.

This is very smooth and very sweet. Lot's of vanilla and caramel. There's some oak to it as well. It's a good sipper and probably great for drinks too.

I may have received an older bottle as it was a square bottle with a cork top. The more recent bottling is a round bottle. This review refers to the square bottled version which I had:

Beautiful Spanish-style blended rum. Deep and complex with strong notes of vanilla throughout. Truly one of the best rums I've had. Delightful to sip and it is distinctive enough to turn a good cocktail into a cocktail that is memorable. As a tikiphile, I've found it to be amazing as the base of a top-shelf Pupule.

I've heard rumors that the newer bottling in round bottles with a screw top is not necessarily the same - I'll update my rating when I've had the newer bottling.

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.

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!
