Angostura 1919 8-Year rum

Angostura 1919 8-Year

Trinidad and Tobago | Aged

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

The taste, the aftertaste. The aroma. The texture. Best rum found so far.

Bourbon drinker. The slightly sweet aroma with the molasses backdrop... is very nice. The oak comes through. I like it!!!

This rum is an excellent multi-purpose aged rum with a light but complex taste profile. Provides a delicate and just-sweet-enough taste for sipping but also makes an excellent dry mojito. No heavy afterburn when taken neat or on the rocks, where it is excellent with a squeeze of key lime. The price is moderate considering the quality. This is the only rum I've found that approaches some of the qualities of the now-discontinued-in-the-USA Oronoco (a cane rum), which was my go-to rum for several years until the distributor pulled it in this country. Though 1919 is created from fermented molasses, it avoids the heavy, cloying molasses tastes of most dark rums as well as the napthalene qualities of most white rums. Plus the bottle is beautiful on a shelf!

Perfect mixing & sipping rum. It’s very smooth, sweet and leaves a really pleasing & lingering aftertaste. 👍

Ein absolutes MUSS im RUM-Keller! Für den Preis bekommt meinen tollen Rum zum puren Genuss oder gern auch als Longdrink zu genießen.

Of course, there are much better premium rums out there. Though 1919 is the rum for me that one can always pour. No matter the occasion, day in the week. So, not the best I've ever tasted, or will taste in the future, but a rum that goes well at any given time. And that means a lot. From all West Indies rums (WIRSPA), this is nr 1.

Verry good rum. Great tastes of vanilla and cocoa. When you open the bottle the smell alone is fantastic.

Morbidissimo, il dolce non è fastidioso mascherato dai sapoi vanigliosi e banana. Va giu come niente. Unico in questo genere
