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
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
This is hands down a great rum, but I wouldn't say it is for everyone. A lot of rum drinkers may like a rum with notes of vanilla or coffee and sweetness...and while you can smell some and taste a hint this is truly a sophisticated smokey/oaky rum. As noted by some others...great with a cigar, and honestly is one of those rums that is kind of like a whisky. It is a great rum. But as I noted, not for everyone
I think it needs some minutes in the glass. In the aroma and taste you can find some vanilla, nuts and dried fruit I think. It’s smooth and the sweetness is quite balanced compared to the 1919. Rate 7,5.
Picture: My Angostura shelf.
Since I liked their 1919 rum, I finally bought a bottle of this to give it a try. I had planned on driving 40 miles to test one ounce at a bar, but those tests only rule out rums that I would never buy. One also cannot adequately judge a rum from just one ounce. I am running out of good cheap rums to buy, so this was a good $58 gamble.
This is a semi-dry rum from Trinidad and has 17 gpl of added sugar. The aroma is of leather. The taste is of fruit and leather. The after taste is the same. It is darker than their 1919 and the flavors are more pronounced. Is it worth another $22 per bottle more than their 1919? That has yet to be seen when the bottle is finally empty a few months down the road. At least it will last for more than 4 months because it has less than 20 gpl of added sugar.
Nice round flavor that Pairs excellent with dark chocolate and Fried fruit. The oak and fruit flavors are good afterparty you rest it for a while.
Purchased a sample from Master of Malt after first sampling the 1919. This 12 year old expression is a definite step up from the 1919.
This rum is full of character the flavour profile is fantastic theres a rich oakiness which is just sublime and it's a smooth one. It's so much better than the 1919 will definitely have to try the 15 year old next!
Medium copper colour; aromas of dried peaches, candied orange peel, raisin, prune, banana and caramel; on the palate it is warm with flavours of dried fruit, toasted oak and toffee. $73 at LCBO
This is not sipping rum. I didn’t like its flavor or lack of rum characteristics. Tastes like a cheap whiskey. Screw top instead of cork is another fault.
Only drink with ice. Not good at all.
