Recommendable to most
I did like this more than the previous one. Previous had little "too much of everything" This one is more dry and you can find more detailed flavours, like nut for example.
Even this is better (my opinion) I don't see a reason for raising the price almost 50% at the same time when production is higher also. Obviously previous one sold so well...
As always Angostura products are "money well spent" At least I don't know any other Rum where you get so much value for money. Both No1 products could sell in over 100€ category too.
Fresh and well balanced, this Angostura N°1 is fruity and sweet. Not too much alcooholic. A step further and the Angostura 1824. I would recommand this rum as it is for me a good value for money. Will most probably purshase one soon 😀
Fruit notes with almond, marsipan taste with this recognizable pastry taste. Very sweet with tropical fruits, banana, peach. Long aftertaste. A beautiful work from Angostura. Real quote : 8.5
Neat or over ice, this is a fantastic rum. The nose is of banana and sweet vanilla, smooth with a aftertaste that lingers nicely. I would not be surprised if "Batch 3" is $100+ US. Nice job by the Angostura team..
j'adore ce type de rhum très agréable, avec de la rondeur, de la force, et une très bonne longueur en bouche.
indispensable pour de petit moment égoïste.
je suis fan, je recommande a fond
I really like the Angostura No. 1 rums. I tasted this side by side with the Batch 1, and I personally give the Batch 1 a slight edge. The Batch 1 is a little more rum like, while Batch 2 has a little more bourbon.
Smells and tastes of molasses, almond, oak, and bourbon. As previously noted, the bourbon notes are just a tad stronger than in the Batch 1.
A great rum!
This is not your mommas rum. If you like good deep well balanced rum then this gem is for you. Very nice, perfect sweetness. Great flavors from start to finish.
10 years in American oak casks before being transferred over to once-used French oak casks that previously held Cognac for the final 6 years.
N- Shy at first, initially get the cured ham with raisin and various dried nuts, then more power and weights shows up gradually, and the aged rum notes blossomed to fullness at the tail, expecting more French Oak influence but the cognac were not as prominent at this stage. (87/21)
P- French oak comes into play with abundance of fig, raisin and oak nuance, well integrated with touch of phenol, charred wood and sweet cedar note. Good 2nd cask influence. Would be great if the sugary at the tail can be contain. (87/21)
F- Medium-long, more obvious brandy coats with echoing waxy dried fruits, full and subtly spicy. (88/22)
Weighted Rate:- 85pt
— at The Rum Bar KL.
I got to try this at the famous Rum Bar in the beautiful Whitsundays Isles in North Queensland. A 16 year-old rum apparently finished in cognac barrels for the last 6 years.
Definitely a brandy taste to it with raisins , slightly nutty and with pastry notes.. Dry and not too sweet. I enjoyed the Batch 1 last year and this was another nice sipper. I have the 1787 at home which im really looking forward to.
