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.
Recommendable to most
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. This review refers to that bottling:
Beautiful Spanish-style blended rum. Deep and complex with strong notes of vanilla throughout.
This rum is 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 buy one and update my rating then.
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!
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.
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.
