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
Every rum to me has a predominant theme, like vanilla, licorice, etc. In this case though it is a mixture of herbs.
The moment you taste it you know there is greatness in this rum. Very smooth and elegant development of taste which stays a long time.
For very special occasions ...
Edit 28-09-17: I am deducting a point since my new bottle seems distinctly sweeter and definitely betrays added sugar. Either they increased the sugar or I missed it the first time.
This is about as far from a partydrink rum can get. It is truly aged, smokey, leatherly, oakey and smells of an old library. To be enjoyed quietly, late at night. You'll like this if you like cigars, aged scotch and pseudo-intellectual drunk talking.
This rums comes in a nice package with a good looking bottle and a nice black canister (picture). It even comes with a small booklet. A quality package in my opinion.
You have to let this rum rest in the glass for a while. At first you get som sticky alcohol and not much aromas but after a while you can sense fruit, vanilla, spice and oak. A lot off different aromas in the glass.
When you taste this rum you get a spice, smoke, oak and some sweetness. Not as sweet as I would like it to be but it is still quite smooth. The Angostura 1824 has a long aftertaste with a lot of spice and oak. A bit too harsh for my taste.
This is a sipper but for me I want my rum to be sweeter so I will probaly use this rum as a mixer. Not very happy with my purchase.
Like jazz, so much going on with the flavors in this rum. Molasses, oak, citrus, honey, smoke, leather all come to the pallette. A wonderful and complex nose. As someone else said an intellectual's rum but maybe that's because I'm half drunk listening to Sigor Rós. Lastly never ever mix this. Enjoy!
Angostura 1824 je namíchána z rumů, které zrály v sudech po bourbonu po dobu nejméně 12 let, byly ručně smíchány master blenderem a znovu uloženy do sudů. Letopočet 1824 připomíná rok, kdy byl v Angostuře poprvé vyroben rum. Hrdlo je masivně zapečetěno voskem, s otištěnou pečetí. (edit: týká se ještě starší verze lahve). Ve skutečnosti působí lahev ještě lépe, než na fotografiích, počínaje reliéfem lodi na krabici, přes pečetní vosk, korek usazaný v krásné dřevěné zátce s erbem, až po číslování jednotlivých lahví.
Pro srovnání jsem testoval s Ron Barceló Imperial, který mám hodně rád.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Ve vůni vosk, včelí plástve, propolis,staré dřevo, působí velmi vyzrále, a nad vším je nezaměnitelný hřebíček s medicinálními tóny.
Učiněná pastva pro moje čichové buňky.
Chuť: První dojem nádherné jemnosti vzápětí vystřídá pikantní plná chuť, kouřovitost, angosturská medicína, vyzrálost.Dochuť je extrémně dlouhá, a stejně jako ve vůni i chuti je v duchu hřebíčku a medicíny, pro kterou asi bude buď zatracována, nebo milována.Já patřím určitě do druhé skupiny. Angostura mi vyloženě sedí, tahle její vlastnost ji odlišuje od ostatní rumové produkce a je díky tomu nezaměnitelná a originální.
I lied 1919 for smothness but when I tried the next - 1824 - I was shocked. It turned very much better! Perfect balance of softness and rich taste with excellent agening. I was impessed!
Love this rum but the only negative is that it is a bit too sweet. Excellent flavor profile, with hints of tobacco, leather, vanilla. Delicious rum but more for dessert.
So far I have found only two rums (Vizcaya VXOP & Plantation XO 20th Anniversary) that I will consume straight. This one comes oh so close to being the third. The 1824 has a wonderful aroma in the bottle and the flavor is very good...a mild sweetness with vanilla...but there's just a little bitter in there that brings it just below a 9 and sipping status for me. [NOTE: For the record, even though I've rated the Angostura 1919 an 8 as well I believe the 1824 is indeed better...an 8.85 as opposed to an 8.00)
Color is a nice Dark Amber. Legs are thin but seem to cling longer than you would expect. The nose is of sweet molasses, vanilla, and butterscotch. The taste is drier than the nose but still has predominate flavors of molasses and vanilla. The oak of the barrel is definitely present. A second sip brings out a bit of leather and tobacco. The finish is a bit hot with lots of spicy notes. Leaves me wanting more. A very complex rum. A keeper for sure.
