Angostura 1919 rum is produced in Trinidad by blending a combination of light and heavy molasses distilled rums. These rums spend at least 8 years aging in American oak bourbon barrels.
The name Angostura "1919" refers to the event in 1932 when Angostura's distillery was destroyed by fire. Miraculously, a handful of barrels filled with rum from 1919 survived and were purchased by J.B. Fernandes - the master blender of Fernandes Distillers.
Tasty, but not quite great
It’s a sipper. I’ve finally found one at the local bottle shop!
Australia’s a hot country, though, and we need to throw back long drinks to cool off, so I am putting it with coke.
But taste-wise, there’s no need to! It most emphatically does not need dilution. It is smooth as!
I’m no stranger to Caribbean rum, but I have had no better than Angostura 1919!
(It says on the label that a fire in the government rum store charred the barrels of 1919 vintage Trinidadian rum in Port of Spain in 1932. Well, they drank the rum. They liked, and have singing it ever since; and the proof is in the tasting!)
Aroma is very weak, with vanilla and sugar tones. Taste is a bit burning with wood, vanilla and slight hint of orange. Aftertaste is short and again weak.
i dont understand most of the reviews here. got a bottle of this last week at the local store and am bitterly disappointed. it smells quite ok but tastes like engine cleaner to me. very chemical and unpleasant, and leaves a burning sensation in the back of the mouth and throat. especially at this price point there are way better alternatives

"The rum is very smooth with notes of oak, cocoa and vanilla. Perhaps a little banana but very subtle."
