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

Having tried Angostura 7-Year several years ago, I was not at all pleased with it and told myself that they should just stick to making great bitters. After reading through these reviews, I have decided that this $33 bottle is the best way to try them again. Their 1824 would run me another $24 and I was not about to take that risk for something marginally better. This time I don't regret buying it.

The aroma is of some type of exotic mint with a pleasant smooth sensation on the tongue. Going down the pipe feels like vanilla mixed with some exotic Trinidad spices. Very different and very pleasant. A nice surprise. For those who like to mix their rums, ginger ale is a match made for this one.

Pretty extreme on the vanilla and not much of a lasting finish. However: smooth, uncomplicated and not too sweet. Ok for every day.

Nagyon megszerettem e rumot, vaníliás, enyhén fűszeres, tölgyes , jó szagolgatni és inni egyaránt ...legyengése hosszú, kissé száraz, alkoholos-fűszeres !! ( az üveg masszív, ölni lehet vele ) :)

Von Geruch her wirklich sehr ansprechend! Etwas Holz, Vanille und ein wenig Frucht. Normalerweise lasse ich meinen Rum gut 15min stehen, bevor ich ihn trinke, dann ist er nicht so scharf, aber bei diesem Rum ist es nach meinem Geschmack besser ihn gleich zu trinken. Wenn er zu lange steht, schmeckt er mir irgendwie etwas zu rauchig und nicht so fruchtig. Trinke ich ihn nach dem einschenken, ist er zwar etwas schärfer, aber die Aromen sind mehr vorhanden und er schmeckt nicht rauchig... zwar ist er dann etwas schärfer, man schmeckt den Alkohol mehr, aber alles in allem ein besserer runderer Geschmack! Ebenfalls schmeckt mir dieser Rum mit Eis besser als auf Zimmertemperatur... halt irgendwie alles anders aber gut :)

Nose: A nice light fragrant nose, floral with vanilla, cherry cola, ginger, caramel, orange and coconut.
Palate: Soft, sweet arrival that turns spicy around the tongue with cinnamon and orange. Smooth, relaxed and warming.
Finish: Spicy vanilla
Smooth and sweet but also light. Spicy enough to be interesting as a sipping rum, no burn, silky. Works well as a mixer, but nice enough to keep for sipping. A great introductory mid-band rum and very good value at the price.
88/100, or 7/10 here.

Godaste romen under 300 kronor. En njutning för gommen. Inte för spritig som många billiga är, utan en mjuk rund kola ton.

Color is blonde. Sweet, fruity, and floral on the nose. Light alcohol burn from start to finish. Reminiscent notes of honey toward the end with just a hint of tobacco. Easy to sip and great to mix. This is a great introductory rum.

Pale straw color, nice sweet smell, delicious taste. Soft on the tongue, clean taste. Fantastic on ice, very drinkable neat.

Highly recommended for a new rum drinker.

I got a bottle of this as a gift and had high hopes. As I have always stated I am no connoisseur, but I drink aged rum regularly on the rocks. While definitely a good rum I felt it was about equivalent to Bacardi 8 at a significantly higher price. As a result I can't rate it as high.
