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.
Tasty, but not quite great
Un rhum avec un vanillé léger et un gout léger de marasquin qui qui lui donne de la personnalité. Un peu de sucre ajouté mais pas écoeurant pour autant.
It has a very bright color and lots of high notes. It is a decent rum, but it must be consumed with ice, which lowers my rating. As stated before it has a lot of high notes and almost no low. That gets a little tiring when drinking because it all tastes the same. The drink has moments where it shows promise but falls flat in the end.
The first time I tried this one, I taught I had found « my rum ». Actually, the bottle lasted much longer than expected. I still like it a lot, but I was lucky enough to discover several other aged rums afterwards and, principally, I am not always in the right mood for this type of rum, super smooth with a very strong vanilla taste. Maybe my example just confirms, once more, that Angostura 1919 is a good door to the magic world of the old rums. By the way, this is already a good reason for always having a bottle in my cabinet.
NB: I am not a specialist. It just happens that I like rum.
Var ett tag sen jag smakade just denna, har för mig att det var rätt mycket vanilj och arrak framförallt i både doft och smak! Inte dålig men inte toppen, måste prova fler gånger
Para mi gusto tiene demasiado sabor a miel y vainilla, es mi opinión pero creo que se parece mucho al Sailor Jerry pero sin especias. Definitivamente debes probarlo antes de comprar la botella ya que esto podría no satisfacer todos los gustos.
This rum is kinda harsh out of the bottle, it needs to mellow over ice a bit. Once mellowed, this is nice and light. It has a soft vanilla flavor with little to no after taste. I would reccomend this to a novice rum drinker.
The Rum is presented in a nice bottle (old packaging), low and squared. The aroma are quite sweet and wuickly you can identify something floral, almost like a rose. For me the "floral" side has been an issue real quick as I must have focused too much on it, but overall the Rum present several aromas like vanilla, fruits and orange peel... with that floral rose note!
You should definitely try it before you buy the bottle as this might not please everyone.
I was given 2 bottles of this years ago by a Trini friend and fell in love with the taste. Not the smoothest you can buy but many many people love this rum great served neat or the best I ever had mixed when I was at the Hilton Fete in Trinidad for my first Carnival. When I do a rum tasting with friends I give a glass of pepsi on the side to wash the flavours, with 1919 you can taste the cinnamon and ginger only after you take a sip of pepsi. This is my favourite back up rum of choice and always have a few bottles on hand.
