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.

Great note of vanila. I sipped it on the rocks - fantastic entrance to the world of rums. Recomended!

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.

Mixture of taste strong vanilla aroma and taste!! Perfect for those who like sweet flavour in the rum. Very nice for rum old fashion.

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.

A very rum. The aroma is not very strong but it tastes so good! There's some vanilla and some flavours from the barrel.

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!
