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.
Not a bad rum, not my first choice, but nice
Not expensive but not more expressive
It is good flavor, like a vanilla ice cream with apple pie.
However, taste is not enough richness for me.
I got bored of this rum easily.
Medium gold-amber colour; exquisite/complex aromas of toasted oak, with layered notes of tobacco leaf,vanilla and dried flowers; dry but rounded and smooth on the palate, medium bodied, with flavours of vanilla, toasted wood,too much burn for a smooth finish.
Bought the new bottle in a very nice box. The new bottle was fancy. Dissapointed that it not had a cork to seal it with though. This is an okey rum. Smooth oak aroma with vanilla, exotic fruits and citrus. The taste have a little sharpness to it like a blended scotch whiskey with vanilla and citrus as it's maine flavours. The price is a little high on it. I drank it as a sipper.
There are much better tasting rums to sip. Does the trick in a pinch.
Lovely smelling notes of toffee and vanilla in this rum. A slight harsh alcoholic burn in the throat of this one. Wouldn't be my go to rum of choice but worth a go if you haven't tried it before.
Lite för anonym för min smak ingen riktig upplevelse måste jag säga, å den står där i Romskåpet å samlar damm. Men kanske i framtiden att jag provar av den igen.
Denne rom har en fin næse af vanilje, noget træ og en let sødme. En duft der tiltaler mig. Jeg kan godt sidde med næsen i glasset længe, og nyde duften.
Smagen er også dejlig, og der finder jeg det samme som i duften. Der kommer dog en lille anderledes smag til sidst som minder mig mest om humle. Det er en lækker rom og rigtig god til prisen.
Desuden er den hamrende flot. Æsken og flasken er gennemført, og det ser meget eksklusivt ud.
Angostura 1919 smells like the Carribean with hints of south america. We have vanilla, peach, caramel, banana and very light leather. On the tongue we get classic rum Button then a strange muffy aftertaste kicks in - ruining the experience for me. ..
It had this dental cotton wool taste like rum. Really nice with cola.
Fairly dry, slightly spicy rum with hints of smoke. Just about ok for sipping
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
Nice as a mixed rum but a bit harsh as a on the rocks rum
Better than the 7 year old angostura, hints of caramel mostly, but also this quite uncomforting taste of gasoil, not my cup of tea, better than the 7 year old though
I'm not sure whether to rate this as a budget sipper or an expensive mixer. Either way, it's pleasant enough but not great value for money.
At almost twice the price of Mount Gay Eclipse, it's not really going to transform your cocktails. Compared to sippers at this price point, Angostura 1919 lacks depth and character.
Nice vanilla sweet nose. Sweet start into sharp vanilla weak body. Abvish and oaky a bit. Longer semi sweet vanilla end
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.
Hyvän makuinen, mutta terävä alkoholin potku pilaa elämyksen.
The Angostura 1919 is a nice blender that works very fine in different cocktail and drinks. I prefer this rum with Coca Cola and lots of ice.
I tried to drink it neat but don´t think it´s good enough. Sweet with vanilla, fruit and some oak but too much sticky alcohol and spice. This rum is a bit too harsh to drink neat, in my opinion.
But when I mix it - I love it :)
För stark spritsmak och en touch av whisky. Blir dock mildare efter en stund i glaset, vilket gynnar den då karamell och vaniljsmaken kommer fram.
I was expecting something richer and more complex. Actually this is quite a light rum with subtleties that only come out if you leave the rum to stand for at least 10 minutes. Straight out of the bottle it's a bit disappointing and even slightly harsh. It has a dry start and a sweet finish, which is interesting. After standing, you can certainly smell vanilla and caramel. It's quite a think oily texture which I am not sure if I like or not and there' s a slight hint of white chocolate and maybe apricot. It's very thin and one of the least viscous and thick rums I've had - it almost has the texture of brandy. I'd say it was a very atypical rum and if I wanted someone who had never tasted rum to understand what it was from offering them a sip from a handful of bottles, this would never get near that list.
It's actually quite expensive for what it is and there are rums which are at least £5 cheaper which are just as good or better - I'm thinking Plantation Barbados 5 and Doorlys XO straight off.
Nevertheless it's ok with quite a lot of distinctive characteristics. It's probably at it's best with a couple of ice cubes after it's stood for 10 mins. I don't think it's quite as good neat as some other similar priced rums, but it does have a fair bit of character that that's worth taking time over.
Entry level rum from Angostura that is better suited for drinks rather than sipping.
