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.
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!
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.
Great Sipper. taste similar to the 5 years just stronger overall. with hints of tobbaco which is pleasent.
round 40$ in my neck of the words and id buy it again when i run out. fantastic sipper.
This is one of the smoothest easiest drinking sipping rums out there. The flavor has the perfect level of sweetness with a hint of caramel. I would recommend drinking it neat which will be smooth and warm on the palate with little to no bite, the sweetness and subtle flavors tend to come on the finish. I do sometimes use a single ice cube with this, which tends to remove much of the warmth and actually increases the sweetness and opens up the flavors a little more. This is not a mixing rum as the flavors are too subtle and the intricacies of the rum are lost completely to the mix.
Mon premier rhum de dégustation. Je trouve que c'est une très bonne porte d'entrée dans le monde du rhum.
Sucré mais pas trop, mélasse bien présente et surtout une finale très très longue.
Peut-être un poil pas assez "riche", mais rapport qualité prix exceptionnel.
Je l'ai essayé en mojito : et bien c'est pas mal du tout...
That's the word that came to my mind when I opened the bottle for the first time. So sweet and rich to the nose! Then, in the mouth, you do remember that it's rum and not syrup... Tasty but fiery! A revelation...
This rum has such an oaky taste that the first time I tried it my description was "it tastes like you are licking the deck of an pirate ship" and I meant that in a good way. I still love to sip this rum but I buy it less since it's price went up by about $5.
This rum captures the essence of what rum ought to be - an island spirit. The nose calls to mind the best the islands have to offer, and the taste delivers on that promise. The finish is pure pleasure. Those Trinidadians are doing something very right, and at a fantastic price to boot!
J ai été surpris au gout et arome parfumé. Il est doux et léger. Gout de caramel et crème. Je me cherche déjà une deuxième bouteille a acheter.
It’s was my first rum to really drink straight and appreciate. Smooth with a hint of vanilla. Started trying other rums out and comparing but I always come back to this original. It’s also inexpensive.
