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
Odd taste notes, tobacco etc. Clearly an essence-bomb, despite of Angostura always saying they do not put in essences (well, lab tests say otherwise). sweetened. Unnatural vanilla. Thin base spirit. No thanks. Has gotten from not so nice to truly awfully poor in its lifetime. Weak.
First, I found this way better than the disappointing 1919, which I found oily and lacklustre. This has a lot more oak, molasses and fruit (possibly mango and banana). On the negative side, the added sugar seems to dampen the experience rather than add anything at all to it. I also found it had a slight burn on the aftertaste.
Deep amber color. Molasses and vanilla on the nose. Upon sipping, you are hit with a sweetness that mellows out to oak. Then there is a subtle bite ate the back end as burnt banana and toffee exits the nose.
Wonderfully smooth, complex, and reserved. Flavors of oak, leather, and tobacco make this an excellent sipper and it's certainly worth making it last at the price point. It would be a travesty to mix this with Coke or even make something basic like a dark n' stormy with this rum. In fact, I currently use it only in my zombie (with a generous 1.5 oz pour) which is a kick in the face best enjoyed by lovers of rum in the first place. It takes a lot for me to really view a rum as something primarily to be enjoyed neat (as a tiki cocktail enthusiast) and this is the first rum that really makes me feel guilty for mixing.
Tried this after the bartender made an intro. Weak color. Not to sweet. Balanced body. A little bit sweet aftertaste but you are loosing quickly. Always with ice and dont mix it
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!
Really well-presenter rum here. Nicely presented in its container, with a booklet and a beautiful corked top.
Angostura 1824 has a fairly straightforward aroma in my opinion - one that’s relatively sweet, with hints of honey, floral notes and a little nuttiness.
The taste is well-rounded and very smooth - a fantastic balance between sweetness (honey, maple syrup), savoury (butter, nuts, woody elements, and even a slight smokiness), and spice (ginger, leather).
Fantastic rum! Not quite a Diplomatico, but not far off!
