Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
The rum has a nice smokey smell
Good smooth rum with vanilla and some chocolate flavour and a Light woodtast.
Un ron muy suave. Barrica, vainilla, café, frutas...
Truly, one of my favourite rums.
1919, the bottle says it all really (no seriously, it has a whole story and the tasting notes - it really does make mention of most reviewable material). Not considerably sweet, but never diving into the bitter at any given time. Not quite subtle tastings of vanilla, toffee and a sprig of tobacco leaf, the flavour body is present, with a very similar nose. Smoother than Angostura's other fare, there is a noticeable chest burn that doesn't formulate from the throat. The best way to savour is not to keep it on the tongue, but relish the aftertaste - which is heavily vanilla and toffee.
Texture wise, easy to stir, low viscosity, not really reaching the water mark as it were, but aspiring to it. Almost like sucking on a butterscotch, but with more enthusiasm to make it less thick. A lighter golden colour sans ice is given way to a lovely dark caramel with ice.
Overall an 8 because it does Caribbean rum well (maybe it's a bit too smooth, but people like that) Nice nose, texture and taste, this one is a shelf regular.
Disclaimer: I taste (and drink) all my alcohol (mostly rum) seco, i.e. straight, no ice. If you wish to use this as a mixed drink, please look at another review (which you should be doing anyway, I'm just one man with a subjective palate after all) for a more complete reference.
Jaha vad säger man om den, lillebrorsan till 1824
Kändes inte alls så fyllig, ganska tunn smak. Den funkar men ingen woaw upplevelse.
To be fair, this was one of my favourites, when I started drinking rum, around 12 years ago. Slightly harsh, taste of vanilla and caramel with a little afterburn. Slightly expensive for an 8 year old, but not overly expensive. Over the years, however, I’ve found numerous rums of a similar price that are so much better than this one. Kirk and Sweeney 12 yr old, for example, is normally cheaper, but is on a different level.
In this price range there are much more better rums. Not creamy, no additional flavours, only alcohol...
Rhum "tout doux", sur des arômes grillés, sans agressivité. Peut-être pas un grand rhum, mais un bon rhum.
A sweet rhum, with roadster flavours. Very pleasant, even if not a "great rhum".
This rum is strange to me. At one time I love it when I start sipping some and at other times it just aint good enough for me. I can't figure out why!
This is a versatile rum that works well as a sipper or mixer. Personally, I like dry rums that are not too sweet and this meets that criteria from the Angostura offering (it’s older brothers are too sweet and the No. 1 Sherry Cask is too expensive for the quality). I’d have this over the rest any day.
Ein absolutes MUSS im RUM-Keller! Für den Preis bekommt meinen tollen Rum zum puren Genuss oder gern auch als Longdrink zu genießen.
Entry level rum from Angostura that is better suited for drinks rather than sipping.
Not a bad rum to finish the night off.
Definitely better rums to start with
Really sweet with nice caramel and vanilla taste. Easy to drink
Nice rum straight up and l would think if you enjoy T&T or Jamacian style rum you would find my rating low. Not a go to for me but will pick up on sale.
Är helt ok men inte inom top 10 en medelgod medelbra i både doft och smak, sticker inte ut men är helt enkel bara bra.
The vanilla says it all: A fake rum. And the sweetness supports the claim.
I don't know what was the intention making this rum... alcoholic taste, bad afterburn, smells terrible... It is only drinkable with coke and a lot of ice, but seriously, for this amount of money just buy something else.
Un joli rhum découvert au début de mon apprentissage de la dégustation du rhum. Un mélange de vanille et de caramel. Une belle trouvaille pour démarrer.
I started my rum journey from this rum. Hints of vanilla, coconut. Really good sipper. For me 1919 tasted better in square form bottles. With new design taste went down
Perfect mixing & sipping rum. It’s very smooth, sweet and leaves a really pleasing & lingering aftertaste. 👍
This isn't a terribly complex rum and it can be a bit harsh neat, but mixed it lends good flavor.
Discovered this by accident and ended up loving it that it became my rum staple. Great for mixing - not too dense, smoky or syrupy - but good enough to drink on its own. Maybe a little oaky but clean finish and nice balance. Highly recommend.
This is my go to rum, great deal for the price. Good mixer too.
