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.
Ok, Angostura and me will not soon become great friends, but this one is quite nice and complex, a stand alone kind of rum, yet not my favorite, but taste is personal..
Nettement moins sucré que 1919 et beaucoup plus complexe, moins écœurant.
Gros arôme de tabac et bonne longueur. Je reste néanmoins sur ma faim, assez peu séduisant, je n achèterais jamais une bouteille de ce rhum.
I imagine this rum is a crowd-pleaser. It's well-aged, dark, offers you flavors of deep caramel, tobacco, and charred wood without being too dry, strong, or intense (though I would personally prefer all those things). It's conservative and approachable, and indeed would be a comfortable companion along with a cushy chair and a fireplace on a chilly evening.
Buen ron suave y con demasiado sabor a vainilla al igual que el 1919, no es mi tipo de ron.
Personnellement bien mieux que le 1919 il n'y a pas photo.
Aroma: vanil, orange cedrus, honey, raisins. Strong and catchy taste. Long finish. Perfect digestive.
A nice and smooth sipper. Hint of sweetness in the aroma with honey & vanilla. Smooth taste, no alcohol burn with a little oaky spicy kick. Finish is short though. Overall a nice but a generic inoffensive rum.
Had to send off for a bottle of this quality rum, not being able to source it locally. Masters of Malt, £59/$76 delivered.
First thoughts on opening the bottle were how much it reminded me of DRE, but on tasting obviously not so sweet. The same toffee and fruit tastes and nose, a very smooth rum. On first taste, neat, i found it to be very warming and also exceptionally smooth.
Adding 1 ice cube made it even more so. Gentle burn and long after tastes, this rum is not to be mixed with anything.
IMO well worth the money.
Bought a bottle of Angostura 1824 while vacation in Trinidad a few years ago and had high expectations since Angostura is a very well known rum distiller, but the flavor profile is a complete mess and the afterburn is just awful. 1824 is only marginally better than slightly cheaper 1919, but a far cry from a proper neat sipper.
Den var god, vi havde den med på ferie til en aften Rom 🥃 den blev bare bedre og bedre. Helt klart et gen køb
If you like lightly sweet, oaky rum, this is for you. If you can find it, nab a bottle. Great with steak. Tastes are oak, molasses, a touch of sticky honey, and a coy bit of cherry at the end.
Gorgeous bottle, lovely amber colour.
As with the 1919 and similar to St Clement this has the medicinal note to it, which makes it a binary choice: you get it or you don't.
Majoring on El Dorado and Foursquare, I don't get it.
Dark, sweet and smooth. To drink neat, on ice or with a little water
Well, this one is sneaky. The 1824 feels like you're drinking a 20 proof child's version of rum. There is little aroma and even less flavor. It's as if someone has poured water into a half-full rum bottle. It doesn't taste bad, it just doesn't taste.
God rom med masser af smag. Der er masser af træ, røg og læder over den. God duft også.
Only 6.9 point. Slightly better than 1919, long way up to 1787
I find it's a light smooth oak dark flavoured you can mix this or have it neat I prefer neat
I got to know this rum during my very first tasting.
Très bon rhum. Léger et facile à boire. Caramel bois ...
My first thoughts are this is one fine rum. Having a hard time pulling out all the different aromas but it is very pleasant on the nose.
In the mouth is starts sweet but not too sweet, no burn at all and has a nice long finish.
A bit expensive but I am going to enjoy every drop of this great rum.
Very spicy, a bit of Barrel. sweet & fruity top rum.
Beautiful as a digestive. Slightly spicy (anis, wood skin). Smooth lingering finish with vegetal notes.
It's a little harsh on the nose but it's a beaut on the tongue.
I like the Angostura 1919 and prefer this one. Less vanilla, more of other things, seems more balanced. martin jeppesen comments describe quite well my feelings.
NB: I am not a specialist. It just happens that I like rum and I will not hesitate to adjust my reviews to reinforce coherence between my own ratings.
