Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I had read about this rum online and thought I might find it rather easily. I was wrong. But when I ran across a bottle (the only bottle of it in the shop) while on a weekend getaway in Panama City Beach a couple of months ago I immediate bought it. No questions asked.
A very pleasant aroma in the snifter. Very nice deep amber flowing into a golden yellow in shallower portions of the snifter. Swirling the rum in the snifter showed a long...and I mean LOOOONG cling to the sides of the snifter. Almost like painting with rum. I noticed that enhanced the aroma in the snifter. Nice.
Upon tasting it I noticed a clear contradiction...at first it has a marked sweetness and almost instantly transforms to a fairly dry taste. And add to that a pepperiness as well. Also seems a bit buttery to boot. Very smooth. The finish seems to be peppery with hints of toffee and vanilla and it's a long finish. Not a several burn but a definite warmth coating the through downwards.
Definitely a rum to bring out on those special occasions with friends and family.
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.
Very nice smooth Angostura rum, however I'm afraid this is due to added sugar....
You can really taste the 6 years in Sherry casks.
Has nice flavours of vanilla and some dried fruits. Bottle and box are classy too. :)
